Numerical displays: Reach more expensively, but fewer customers
Average today's advertising is 12% higher than two years ago - a five-fold increase over consumer spending and 70% higher than TV advertising, according to a new Adobe Data Insights study. The Adobe Imaging Services application provides millions of answers to your search queries through its online advertising services.
Whereas screen advertising - the pop-ups and flags that used to characterize the Internet - is now less valuable, screen, web and web advertising more than made up for the differences. This increase is good news for web giants like Alphabet and Facebook, who dominate the lion's share deals in the advertising world.
However, it is a less sonny statistic for the advertiser himself who, according to Adobe's analytics, probably gets less for every dollars they spen. Marketers pay more easily to keep their client base and at the same time have tough rivalry for new clients. "We' re not at a time when you can only achieve pure organizational growth," says Tamara Gaffney, senior researcher at Adobe Digital Insights.
" According to a recent prediction by eMarketer, US expenditure on this year' digitale advertising is likely to reach 83 billion US dollars, exceeding overall TV advertising expenditure for the first year. Most of this is likely to go directly to Google and Facebook, which generated almost all of the advertising revenues this year.
While Google is dominating the keyword bookmark, Facebook is better represented. Progress has been made by both parties in the areas of mobility and home entertainment. According to the data provided by the enterprise, cell phones made up 83 per cent of Facebook's advertising revenues last year, up from 77 per cent in 2015. Google says Google's advertising on the move accounts for about half of the company's advertising revenues.
The " average cost per ad " of Facebook rose last year by 5 per cent and last year by 140 per cent. Conversely, Google's "aggregated cost-per-clicks" across the entire advertising market declined by 11 per cent in both 2016 and 2015, a decrease driven by the company's "continued increase in YouTube exposure advertising, where cost-per-clicks remain lower than on our other advertising sites.
"Most of the advertising budget is on the lookout and the vast majority is going to a company," Gaffney said with reference to Google. "but that doesn't mean they're more efficient. For example, take classified advertising - in the last two years, marketers have seen their overall expenditures for searching increase by 42 per cent, but the number of hits on marketers' sites resulting from those classified advertising has only risen by 11 per cent, according to Adobe.
Indeed, the overall number of US website visitors has dropped by about half a point over the last three years, according to this year's ADI Mobile World Congress survey. In addition, when they browse a website, users are spending less visiting the site - the average visiting hours of the site fell by 6 per cent last year, according to Adobe.
" It is also possible that on-line experience will just become more effective - humans can find what they need and go much quicker - but either way these decreases mean that marketers have fewer ways to link up with users and sites that offer ad imprints have less stock to resell. Even advertising companies still have difficulties adapting to portable videos.
While ad imprints from portable videos increase as desktops decrease, many advertisements are designed only for the desktops ad, generating an experience that is unlikely to appeal to prospects. Sometimes a few big sellers are the only shoppers in a given store, which forces the viewer to see the same videos over and over again.
Adobe's advertiser and consumer survey revealed a significant gaps in the way each group evaluated advertising experience. More than half of marketers said they were better at placing value advertisements, but only 38 per cent of users said yes. It was not until 1997 that the cost of addressing prospective clients via TV advertising began to exceed the rate of rate of inflation.
Similarly, Gaffney said that some forms of advertising could be at the beginning of a long rise in pricing. Whilst the cost of old-fashioned wallpaper advertising has dropped because this advertising stock could be purchased anywhere, Google and Facebook usually control Google and Facebook respectively.
"The display has many different places to go, so you don't see the same increasing cost situations. "At the moment, many of the corporate advertising budget is going into searching, but even a small move to the cell phone would make a big difference to businesses that offer these kinds of service.
Marketers are looking first at Facebook, but an advertising boom in the corporate sector could also hit businesses like Snap, Gaffney said.
