Merca2.0 – What is advertising for mobile audiences?

Omri Argaman – Mobile is the seventh mass media and is very different from the sixth medium which is the Internet (PC). There are many differences between the mobile and PC versions. The mobile brings with it many benefits that no other brings with it: it is the most used screen (more than 4 hours on average per day), it is with us all day and it has geographic orientation, counting on valuable information to know which is the best ad to show at a certain time.

Mobile advertising brings with it a wide range of ad formats and capabilities that no other platform offers. Mobile traffic has become larger than PC traffic since 2014. Currently, in much of the world, mobile is the only Internet device that the population owns, since they never had or did not have a PC.

Merca2.0 – What does user acquisition consist of?

OA – Every advertiser and company in the world wants and needs new customers, new users, new consumers. User acquisition is the action that we do as marketers to acquire these new users / clients. This action can be done in an organic and media-free way: people who visit your site, fill out potential consumer forms and become customers, or can be done by purchasing media / ads whose primary goal is to acquire users, to acquire new clients.

Merca2.0 – What is the perspective of mobile marketing after the COVID-19 pandemic?

OA – Overall, COVID-19 worked well for mobile marketing in most cases. Globally, the time of consumption of content through screens has increased by more than 30 percent in most countries due to the coronavirus, as people have much more time to play and use the mobile phone.

Categories like gaming, streaming, E-commerce, delivery, education and lifestyle / sports apps have grown by more than 50 percent in some cases, people are downloading this kind of apps much more than before.

When the contingency ends, we believe that some habits will continue. E-commerce and gaming will remain in the lead, as more and more people download these types of applications and spend more time using them. The budget for offline advertising will be redirected to mobile, due to the confinement and the low influx of people on the street. So, without a doubt, we will see an increase in mobile advertising greater than predicted.
