Mobile Ad Networks

Currently, mobile advertising. has begun more and more into the mobile phone users with the advertiser’s perspective, a market research firm Nielsen study early March found that in the past month, the United States has as many as 58 million wireless subscribers have visited mobile advertising. Market research firm Gartner Inc. is expected, in 2011, global mobile advertising revenues will be expected from the $ 1 billion less than last year soared to $ 11 billion.

However, as a new advertising platform, mobile advertising from the mainstream advertising platform is still not a small ad network is currently the biggest problem is the same online advertising can not be as user-related behavior can be understood when viewing the ad, which may become the biggest bottleneck in the mobile advertising market, as in the case of reaction with the audience unsure of advertising effectiveness advertisers certainly not easily dig into their pockets for mobile advertising, but would not choose the mobile phone as the primary advertising medium.
