3 key rules for successful mobile advertising:

  • Set precise targeting parameters.
  • Choose fitting ad formats for your goals.
  • Regularly optimize campaigns and analyze mobile promotion results.

Rule 1 – Select the right targeting parameters

The success of an advertising campaign largely hinges on accurately defining the target audience. Targeting, after all, allows ads to be shown exclusively to users who are most likely to be interested in your product or service.

Rule 2 – Choose advertising formats that suit your promotional goals

Advertising campaigns can have various objectives, and it’s important to keep in mind who your target audience is and what goal you are pursuing.

For example, if you need to inform your audience about a promotion as part of a mobile campaign, fullscreen banners are a suitable format. However, if your goal is to drive users to a landing page, use interactive formats like video or Rich media.
