The mobile advertising and marketing platform Opera Mediaworks has released a report titled 'Mobile First Insights (MFI) India', taking into account the first quarterly data and information. The report insights are based on Opera Mediawork's statistics which claims that the platform reaches out to over 1.4 billion users, and includes trends, advertising best practices, and what's new in mobile technology and creativity.
He adds further, "We hope the new report will serve the needs of Indian brands, agencies and publishers alike, as we aim to bring in key trends in mobile advertising, invaluable insights, and category best practices that can be applied to their business."
The report calls the music, video, and media apps as 'Today's Premium' since they provide real value to mobile users. Moreover, according to the report, ad campaigns in these categories witness higher levels of engagement than any other category, and in many cases, higher conversions as well. The click-through rate for apps is 1.7 times higher than that of mobile web.
The study further says that technology can mean the difference between a poorly-targetted campaign, and a highly accurate one, and hence, advertisers who work with a mobile ad platform and not directly with a media company must be assured of direct software development kit (SDK) penetration in order to increase the likelihood of reaching highly targetted audiences.
