Integrated Marketing Research
Slow Painful Death Of TV As Top Ad Medium
Television currently is #1 as an advertising medium, claiming a 38% share of total adspend. However, Zenith forecasts that by 2018 the internet will overtake TV to become the largest single advertising medium. One of the reasons for TV’s loss of share is the “rapid growth” of paid search, which, together with classified, is essentially a direct response channel, while TV is the “pre-eminent brand awareness channel” and Zenith expects it to remain so “for many years to come”. Mobile advertising is responsible for almost “all of the growth” in global adspend.

Twitter is enabling advertisers to engage with the 500 million monthly visitors that don’t have accounts on the platform by placing Promoted Tweets on the pages consumers go to when they click on tweets in search results. The move boosts the audience marketers can reach on Twitter to more than 800 million.
In-store purchase research on mobile devices has quadrupled in the last year. Still, 60% of people using mobile devices in-store for purchase research will convert in the physical store.
Two-thirds of YouTube views occur on mobile devices, YouTube research indicates. Mobile use played a large role in the 44% increase in time spent on YouTube by ages 18-49 in the past year.
Also, Millennials accounted for most of the audience of the year-end YouTube Ads Leaderboard, according to this breakdown of trends. Four of the top 10 ads viewed on YouTube originally aired on TV. Mobile views of the spots featured on the Leaderboards surpassed desktop for the first time at 61%.
US online advertising soared 23% to $15 billion in the third quarter — the highest quarterly spend ever. In the first half of 2015, the biggest growth was in mobile spend, which rose 54% to $8.2 billion. “Brands and agencies are focusing ever more attention on interactive screens, following consumers as they flock to digital platforms to be entertained, engaged and informed,” said Sherrill Mane of the Interactive Advertising Bureau.
Mobile application installs via Instagram’s ad platform have a click-thru rate of 0.8, besting that of even Facebook, according to a Nanigans report. “Instagram adoption among our customer base has not only been rapid, but also spans many verticals,” said Nanigans’ Cheryl Morris.
Marketers understand the appeal of having a mobile-first strategy, not only because of the proliferation of smartphones, but also due to the growing time spent on these devices. And even though nearly half of marketers and IT executives have adopted a mobile-first environment, many still have not. According to November 2015 data from the Leapfrog Marketing Institute, 51% of marketing executives and 45% of IT executives in the US said their company is not building a mobile-first environment. Additionally, 6% of marketing and IT executives said they don’t know if their company is taking a mobile-first approach. Mobile commerce has liberated shoppers, enabling them to buy pretty much anything, anywhere and at any time they want. Mobile makes shoppers much more impulsive with their purchases. Mobile will play its largest role to date in governing who people will shop with and what they will buy.
Video Ads In France
When are digital video ads most welcome in France? According to mobile device users surveyed in July, they respond most favorably to such ads while they’re on their way to work.

Remember: Marketing is no longer based entirely on planned campaigns. The most effective strategies are now powered by real-time moments that require brands to be agile and creative on the spot.
