The Exponential Growth Of Mobile App Advertising

Facebook advertisers are finally catching up with the exponential growth of mobile app advertising. In 2011, consumers spent 23% of their viewing time on mobile. But advertisers only spent 1% of their budgets on smartphones and tablets.

A new report from e-marketer reveals that the shift to mobile advertising has finally begun to accelerate. In the report, eMarketer found that U.S. spending on mobile app advertising more than doubled from 2012 to 2013. Thus, going from $4.4 billion to $9.6 billion.

Mobile Versus Desktop

Next year, eMarketer predicts, overall spending on desktop advertising will increase by just 0.41%. While mobile ad spending will grow a further 56.00% to $14.97 billion. As a result, by 2016, spending on mobile will rival desktop spending. Also, in 2017 it will blow past, posting $35.62 in ad spending compared to the desktop’s $27.21 billion.

Additionally, we believe a significant percentage of that increase will shift towards mobile app installs through AppStore or Google Play.

A company must meet several requirements in order to qualify as a Google Premier Partner. According to Google, “Achieving Partner status means that your company has demonstrated AdWords skill and expertise, met Google ad spend requirements, delivered company agency and client revenue growth, and sustained and grown its client base.” Premier Partners are held to an even higher standard and must demonstrate expert-level AdWords knowledge and performance in order to achieve this badge.
