PPC (Pay per Click) Banner Ads are the most non-interruptive ways of advertising in the online medium. They appear only when the user has made a specific search for the relevant products or services. In other words PPCs are ads that the user has specifically searched on his own. The growing popularity of the PPCs puts them in a strong position with regards to the opportunity to become the face of all Advertising on the internet.
The most important advantage which PPC Ads have, over the other methods, is that the consumers reach them on their own accord. It is they who are in need and this puts a lot of power in the PPCs while they try to convert a user into a buyer. In fact, PPCs placed in SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages) are so accurate that they do not even need the aid of displays or other spectacular graphics to attract. A simple short copy, focusing on the USP (like “Low Prices”, “Wide Range” and more) is more than enough to do the job. The high percentages of conversions are also due to the fact that the PPCs are often direct in leading a user straight to the sales page. This can be done because it is assured that a user typing something like “buy shoes in delhi” is definitely in need of the item. Thus, PPCs can skip the intermediate steps of pitching for the product or service. Even in the case of Social Media PPCs that make use of images, a detailed work from the graphic designing team is not required.
Nevertheless, the best way to begin your brand’s experience with PPCs is to invest in the ones prompted by the search engines. There cannot be more fruitful results than advertising before an online user who has taken the trouble of typing out his requirements. If your brand is still new to or yet to explore the high conversion rates of PPCs, it is highly advisable that you join the bandwagon, and enjoy the benefits of the most effective way to advertise your brand on the internet.
An important question in Mobile Advertising, like any form of Advertising, concerns the tone of the pitch being made for the product. Some say that an advertisement should be more informative so that the ones who actually need the product or service would be benefitted. That saying, just like many other traits of advertising, belongs to a past age now. The modern world of advertising has come to know and accept methods like “ambush advertising” where masked attacks are launched at the competitors. Mobile Advertising has also seen a change in trend and the Mobile Banners that once enticed at the most, now also attempt to provoke the user into feeling shame, guilty or threatened.
How many of you have encountered pop up banners saying something like, “Beware!! 33 viruses detected in your mobile!!”? Did you stop to notice that this happened only when you performed certain actions like opening an application? No? You became so concerned that you stopped noticing anything else. The banner has then fulfilled its primary task. If you have clicked on the same, its purpose has been fulfilled. This is the latest in the line of Mobile Ads that provoke a reaction in the viewer that would lead him to click on the link to the website of the advertiser. This style stands in difference from the traditional Web Banners where the attempts that are made are to entice the user with ad copies like “Find the cheapest mobile phones here”.
Thus, the most important question for Mobile Advertising Agencies right now is whether to entice or to provoke.
The mobile revolution has gripped the entire world by frenzy. The time spent by the present generation with their mobile phones was inconceivable a few years back. Modern Advertising plunged into this revolution and emerged in the face of Mobile Advertising. Mobile Advertising Agencies are one of the busiest lots, having to deal with constant and fast changes prompted by the advances in technology.
The first step which caused a consequential increase in the scope of Mobile Advertising is the increase in the speed of mobile internet services. Mobile Advertising that was once limited to sms and voice campaigns, soon spread to the forms of Mobile Banner Ads, ushering in tremendous opportunities and possibilities for Mobile Advertising. Mobiles being personal devices, they facilitate incredible levels of interaction. And as the golden rules of ads have been written on interactivity, Mobile Ads were automatically placed to have a much higher impact. The two most influential events which occurred for Mobile Advertising were the start of GPS services and the popularity of mobile apps. With GPS technology being enabled in mobiles, the exact location of the user could be determined. Mobile Ads based on the immediate surroundings of the user were targeted at the user. A Mobile Advertisement of a restaurant sent to a user has a much higher impact when he is near it. Non-interfering Mobile Ads were placed in the mobile apps and they often ranked very high on relevancy.
In the face of the increasing shift of the internet users to mobiles, associating one’s business with a good Mobile Advertising Agency is a good idea. No other advertising medium had been so much dependent on technology as much as Mobile Advertising. Thus, fast changes in the associated technologies necessitate fast changes in the Mobile Advertising Methods.
