INFOGRAPHIC: Catching Up With the Mobile PPC Market
June 5, 2013
Catching Up With Mobile
The State of the Mobile PPC Market and Why You Should Be Involved
In the infographic above, we at Hanapin Marketing take a look at the mobile PPC landscape, not just in terms of cost-per-click but how those mobile clicks actually perform, right down to the individual platforms that advertisers most frequently use.
The big “a-ha moments” come into sharp relief pretty quickly when you collect all of this data together: Mobile clicks are outperforming the attention advertisers are actually giving them–but conversion rates remain lower than desktop. And savvy PPC managers can quickly make up that lost ground with ad targeting and platform specializations.
Our main takeaway? The old marketing adage “it’s all in the mix,” long used by the best ad agencies in the business, is now becoming more and more true of PPC as well. In response, the best PPC management agencies will also have to step up their game when it comes to ad mixes.
Below is a text transcript of the infographic data:
