Shopping Apps: Ad Engagement

Shopping Apps Ad Engagement

Even with establishments slowly opening back up again, m-commerce (mobile commerce) is still a preferred shopping method for consumers. According to Insider Intelligence, it is predicted that a 25.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) will be seen in m-commerce, reaching $488 billion by 2024. This presents a golden opportunity for mobile marketers to leverage their shopping apps to acquire and retain more users. 

There are several factors that assist in attracting more users with your ad creative, such as: color, copy, and ad format. Users respond to specific elements differently in different ad formats. For example, with Interstitial Display, users prefer a pink call to action (CTA) that says “Install Now.” For Video formats, a yellow CTA that says “Download Now” is the most optimal. Preferences differ per format, so learn more about the ad engagement of Shopping app users through our infographic below.
