WHY EFFECTIVE TARGETING IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT ON MOBILE

Mobile phones offer substantially less screen estate for the presentation of content/online advertising. Bombarding users with ads in the hope that one of them will fall on fertile ground is simply not possible – and even less advisable than on a desktop screen. This strategy will just alienate consumers and motivate them even more to install ad blockers. Precise selection of the best ad – and presenting this ad to the right user at the right time – is the only sensible alternative. To do this, we need data about users. Fortunately, this data is becoming available … but you have to use it, too.

Panel Discussion

Mobile vs Desktop: Chalenges, Myths, Reality

The panel discussion brought together media and advertisers with the desire to answer the burning question: Is display on mobile actually more effective than display on desktop?
Is its higher price justified or is it just a consequence from users’ switch from desktop to mobile, and consequentially the smaller number of available ad positions? Or is the higher price justified by better results on mobile?
Panelists:
1. Zoran Turković
2. Robert Čoban
3. Karmen Lužnik
