Marketers and consumers have something in common: Neither group knows quite what to make of mobile advertising. But we’re getting there. We know, for instance, that consumers are willing to view certain ads they consider relevant to them. Yet there is an overall aversion to the prevalence of mobile advertising, PwC reported recently. That – and the relative newness of this advertising trend – may help explain why marketers are not unanimously on board with every aspect of mobile programmatic advertising.
Marketers do value mobile advertising, though. Different brands and organizations tend to focus on the aspects that are most relative to their current marketing campaigns. More and more, marketers are shifting funds from other formats to fold mobile strategies into their programs. In the latest IAB Mobile Center’s “Marketer Perceptions of Mobile Advertising” research, a holistic look at marketers’ views of mobile, two out of five marketers agreed that mobile programmatic advertising would help them reach their target audiences.
