Mobile App Advertising
Mobile App advertising is a growing trend and while more and more businesses offer quality Apps to their clients, the need to advertise through this medium will increase and become more commonplace.
According to Our Mobile Planet which is powered by Google, the percentage of people who have noticed advertising on Apps that they have is around 40%. For a new industry this is a very high percentage and as online marketing took to websites, so will it show itself in Apps in a variety of ways within the next decade.
Many cost effective App building companies include their own branding as a form of marketing themselves and also generating an additional income by offering the service to take their branding off the App at a cost. While it is understandable that these businesses need to promote themselves in order to keep their costs down, one of the main reasons that people are still enjoying Apps to the degree that they are is because they are – for the most part – advertisement free.
Turning Apps into Personal Information Directories
People don´t like to be bombarded with information they haven´t requested and downloading Apps to their devices is one of the ways that the general public have shown their desire to stop the advertising onslaught. People are building their own directory of important products and services through their App downloads and reducing the advertising means that they have access to only the information they want.
The interactive features that are also included in the Apps make them ideal for push advertising, but quality developer are choosing to use these functions for their customers convenience rather than for attracting advertising income.
