Research finds good response to mobile ads
Posted: 05-Oct-2006 [Source: M:Metrics]

[M:Metrics research found a sizable number of mobile subscribers responded via SMS to an ad.]

Seattle -- Across the five countries for which it measures mobile content consumption, M:Metrics found that monthly use of text message short codes in response to ads was as high as 29.1 percent of mobile subscribers. The firm, which today released the first definitive metrics for mobile advertising, found that a sizable percentage of mobile subscribers are responding to short codes placed in advertisements or in other media, with Spain topping the list at 29.1 percent, followed by the UK at 18.5 percent, France at 10.1 percent, the United States at 7 percent and Germany at 3.4 percent.

"These numbers are not unlike what we saw in e-mail response during the mid-1990's as the Web emerged an advertising medium," said Will Hodgman, CEO, M:Metrics, who also founded AdRelevance, the global standard for advertising measurement on the Internet. "The growing adoption of major brands using SMS and the substantial consumer response rates indicate a couple of important trends: mobile as a commercial medium is on steroids; and multimedia convergence is real."
