ADVERTISER CAMPAIGN MANAGEMENT
AppLovin | February 03, 2023
One of the most popular mobile marketing and monetization platforms, AppLovin, has recently released its Creative Trends Report 2023, which lists the best performance-driven mobile ad trends for the year. This report will help mobile app developers and vertical marketers come up with creative ideas for their mobile ad campaigns.
To prepare this report, AppLovin’s in-house creative agency, SparkLabs, collected data from more than 200 applications, 267 installations, 22.4 billion clicks, 52.3 billion impressions, and tens of thousands of creatives in 2022 and researched the variables and influencing ideas that generated the highest return on investment (ROI), click-through rate (CTR), investor relations (IR), and return on ad spend (ROAS). The analysis shows that customization of an environment, character, or item, dramatic story narratives, real-time feedback, and voiceover messaging encourage more engagement.
CMO of AppLovin, Katie Jansen, said, "Our goal with this report is to provide marketers and developers insights and inspiration for achieving increased success for mobile ad campaigns. The report is packed with proven performance-driven ad concepts that have generated significant lift for their campaigns by capturing the majority of ad spend." She added, "Putting the best creative pieces together doesn’t always guarantee a win. To ensure that your ads are consistently high-performing, you need a combination of performance-driven analysis and continuous iteration and testing to find an optimal creative strategy for your app."

MAGNA | January 23, 2023
MAGNA Media Trials, the industry-leading proprietary research offering of MAGNA, and Roku have just announced a new study in cooperation with the Roku Brand Studio, which reveals that new video ad formats in streaming TV are twice as appealing to consumers as traditional TV advertising.
Currently, marketers strive to stand out in the transition to streaming. However, traditional TV ads alone miss an opportunity to surprise and excite viewers throughout streamers' journey outside the traditional ad break. Beyond the: 30 on streaming TV investigates how marketers can create more engaging and powerful ad experiences on the platform.
There were tests of three new "Beyond the: 30" video ad formats:
Roku Original Vignette: A 30-second ad in which a brand references the Roku Original program being streamed.
Thematic Tagged Vignette: A 30-second animated commercial in which a brand celebrates streaming.
Watch Alongs: During commercial breaks, the brand sponsors discuss the television show or movie being streamed.
All three "Beyond the: 30" ads outperformed traditional TV ads in terms of top-of-mind brand recall (+57% "Beyond the: 30" vs. +43%), brand favorability (+8% vs. +3%), and intent to search (+16% vs. +9%). These findings demonstrate the great potential of "Beyond the: 30" advertisements, which include increasing brand awareness and boosting sales.
Multiple brands from many verticals participated in the study, including T-Mobile and Subaru. A home-based panel of 1,316 viewers was randomly split between exposed and control groups, who saw their preferred content intermingled with streaming-specific and traditional ads. Following the content viewing experience, viewers were questioned to evaluate the effect on brand key performance indicators (KPIs) and to get a deeper understanding of consumers' perspectives.
