native mobile ad spend set to breach $ 20 billion in 2017

Native ads will account for 63.2%  of mobile display by 2020, up from 51.8% last year as in 2016.This number is based on an IHS study commissioned by Facebook Audience Network, which predicts spend on native ads in 2020 to reach $53.4bn (£36.7bn).This growth will be driven by third party in-app native ads – the area, of course, that Audience Network specialises in – which are expected to grow spend by an average 70.7 per cent annually over the period, well ahead of the 25.3 per cent growth of mobile display overall.Mobile native advertising is a format of advertising that takes advantage of the form and function of the surrounding user experiences, all of which are indigenous to the wide variety of mobile devices.Since native advertising is largely bought on social platforms, it’s also almost entirely mobile. Native mobile display ad spend is expected to reach $19.5bn this year in 2017  representing 88.3% of all native advertising, and the share is growing. Native mobile will represent 64.5 per cent of all US mobile display ad spend this year

brands to spend the biggest share on on mobile display ads ,mobile search and mobile messaging

"brands to spend the biggest share on  on mobile display ads ,mobile search and mobile messaging "


latest data from BIA Kelsey suggests that Mobile is the fastest growing among all location-targeted media that BIA/Kelsey tracks. When panning back to mobile’s overall U.S. ad spend (local and non-local), it’s estimated at $33 billion in 2016, growing to $72 billion by 2020, a 17 percent compound annual growth rate. Zeroing in on the location-targeted portion of that overall mobile ad spend, it will grow from $12 billion in 2016 to $32 billion in 2021, a 21 percent CAGR. That translates to 38 percent of overall mobile ad revenues today, growing to 45 percent by 2020. 

Drivers include mobile users’ commercial intent and advertisers’ evolution to align with that behavior. There are also premiums associated with location-targeted ads — a function of their performance and growing demand. And Madison Avenue is latching on to these realities.. 

In 2014, mobile spending increased 80 percent, and in 2015  by another 59 percent. By 2019, eMarketer predicts that mobile spend will account for just about 70 percent of total digital spend.Domestic digital advertising revenue surged to a record-breaking $59.6 billion for the 2015 calendar year, largely led by Mobile as which climbed to $20.7 billion,according to adage data a whopping 66% upswing from the previous year. But social media shared the spotlight, growing 55% to $10.9 billion, up from the previous year's $7 billion.

Meanwhile as mobile users keeps increasing at a breath taking pace, engagement across mobile devices have also increased.Today an average U.S. adults spend an average of 2 hours and 51 seconds fiddling with their phones every day. To put that in context, a 2015 study by Zenith Optimedia put our total media time at 490 minutes, or more than 8 hours a day—a majority of the time we’re conscious. The rest of that time is partly the reason that, despite mobile’s takeover of digital spend, mobile still accounts for only 17 percent of total ad spend. TV is still the major player when it comes to ad spend, though eMarketer predicts that, too, will change by 2019.

. Clearly mobile advertising powered by Mobile display, mobile search and mobile enterprise messaging is set to dominate the Mobile ecosystem.By 2019, mobile will represent more than a third of total media ad spending in the US. Google is the undisputed king of mobile and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Google will capture 32.0% of the mobile ad market—its closest rival Facebook capturing 22.1% this year

Best Practices in Mobile ad design

Best Practices in Call to action :The call to action should be just a one click away . Don’t force uses and take them to a page that is more than 1 or 2 click away Design your banner from left to right, or top to bottom as the highest visibility of a human eyes starts from the left side and scrolls vertically. Ideally your call to action should be at the bottom or lower right corner . Avoid heavy and too dense landing page with too many words.For most mobile users, their attention is more focused on images rather than text. Highlight “what you think is the core product proposition 

Avoid heavy animated and flash.. At times the internet connectivity is not strong enough to support fancy banners and flash. While designing the ad banners, use minimum file size .Instead of making users go round and round clicking on hyperlinks, use “ catalogue of products or connect with us .Avoid making the form fields to large. Users hesitate to fill up large drawn out form fields
