Executive Summary

“In our first edition of the State of Mobile Advertising report, we take an in-depth look at the monetization of mobile advertising from four perspectives within the ad delivery value chain: Devices, Publishers, Ad Networks and Advertisers. This report is based on insights from the second quarter of 2012 and summarizes our experience gained as the world’s leading mobile ad platform serving more than 9,000 global customers, with more than 35 billion ad impressions per month and driving over $240 million (US) of revenue to mobile publishers in 2011.”

“Devices with better usability (i.e., larger screen size, touchscreen) and those with features that allow more interaction between the advertisement and the device’s functionality (e.g., click to call, expand, play video) have better monetization potential than less capable and less user-friendly devices. For example, HTML5 Canvas, the mobile-friendly browser feature that specialist developers use to build stunning animations and full-screen rich-media overlays, relies on iOS Safari 3.2 and Android 2.1 or above to run. We also see the importance of device market share in encouraging advertisers to target particular devices. Windows phones have most if not all of the advanced features of Android and iPhones, but low levels of user adoption stifle its performance.”
