Where Do Mobile Ads Work Best? On the iPhone!

Seeing Ads

  • One in ten mobile phone users in the U.S. used a
    location-based service such as a map, friend or restaurant finder in
    Q4, 2008. The 25 - 34 age group saw the highest levels of interest in
    this type of offering, with 22 percent penetration. 
  • One
    in seven mobile phone users visit a mobile Web site, the second most
    popular response; this rises to one in five for iPhone users

Recalling Ads

  • iPhone users are four times as likely to recall LBS (location-based service) ads as non-iPhone users.
  • 33 percent of mobile consumers recall seeing mobile advertisements this quarter, compared to 41 percent of iPhone users.
  • One in three consumers that recall seeing a mobile ad responded in some way; this rises to one in two for iPhone users
  • While
    men and women are equally likely to recall mobile advertising, women
    are 85 percent more likely to respond to ads than men

Responding to Ads

  • Calling a toll free phone number published in the ads is the
    most common means of response; iPhone users called twice as much as
    non-iPhone users
  • One in seven consumers reported buying a
    product or visiting a store as a result of seeing a mobile
    advertisement; for iPhone users, more than one in four bought something
    as a result of seeing an ad
