Programmatic advertising continues to progress globally. In 2019, around 65% of global digital ad spend is expected to be traded programmatically, and advertisers will spend $84 billion on programmatic worldwide. The US market continues to be the front-runner in global programmatic ad spending, with $40.6 billion spent during the previous year. Second is China, which spent significantly less: $7.9 billion. But that figure doesn’t tell the entire story of China’s development as a programmatic market.
Technological innovations have made information easier than ever to access. News now spreads around the world in seconds via various channels. One of those channels is mobile apps. Research on app usage and habits found that 88% of smartphone users have at least one news and weather app on their mobile phone, and smartphone users spend 41% of their total digital time on news apps.
As the app market continues to grow, mobile marketers need to know how to stand out to mobile users. One approach is to catch their attention with a distinctive creative strategy. A mobile marketer who knows the behavior, perceptions, and demographics of their users will have the upper hand on the creative strategy of their campaign, allowing them to design an ad that is specific to their target audience.
