Over time, marketers have developed unique and innovative methods to generate leads. But online ads still retain a dominant position in the marketplace. Appssavvy’s study, “Social Activity Index – Measuring the Effectiveness of Social Advertising” conducted in April 2011, reveals that advertising integrated into social activities that is spread across social games, applications, and web sites is 11 times more effective than paid search, and twice as effective as rich media.
Traditional Internet ads, in the social media or elsewhere, are box or banner ads. While effective initially, such ads now generate low CPMs and have decreased in effectiveness over the years. The 2010 Harris Interactive poll reveals that 43 percent of internet users ignore banner ads. This is partly due to the fact that social network users have less time (and attention span!) to devote to ads, which they consider as a distraction.
Appssavvy tries to ensure that social media advertisements deliver a healthy ROI with a new approach to online ads.
