Performance Matters - Advertisers need to consider unit type, device, operating system and key media verticals

  • Ads within apps had a 36 percent higher CTR than the mobile web; rich media ads delivered a 58 percent higher CTR than banner ads
  • The media verticals that produced the highest overall CTR for mobile electronics ads were entertainment, games and business
  • Android (News - Alert) ruled user engagement with 44 percent higher CTR than iOS and 88 percent higher than Windows
  • The Samsung Galaxy smartphone series had the highest overall CTR and ads running on the Nokia (News - Alert) Lumia performed the worst
  • The best performing tablet device was the Samsung Galaxy Note and interestingly, CTR on this tablet was 226 percent higher than on the iPad

It's not just fair weather clicking - Advertisers should consider weather factors to achieve higher CTR

Humidity plays a role in CTR. Nationwide, the highest average CTR was achieved when there is very low humidity. However, AdTheorent discovered reginal engagement increased when humidity levels were at their most 'normal':

  • The Northeast and New England had the highest CTR when humidity was 75-100 percent
  • The West Coast had the highest CTR when humidity was extremely low

Precipitation impacted CTR as well. Overall, CTR was 8 percent higher when it was raining. However, regionally:

  • The Northern Region had the highest CTR when is was raining heavily
  • The West Coast experienced the highest CTR when it was not raining

Temperature also played a role in CTR. In the Northeast, CTR was highest when the weather was above 88 degrees -- representing a 58 percent increase compared to when the temperatures were low, between 33 and 50 degrees. The Great Lakes region saw the highest CTR compared to all other markets when temperatures were between 33 and 50.

"What makes AdTheorent standout from other ad networks and makes us successful for advertisers is our ability to quickly harness and analyze Big Data to deliver data-driven results that yield huge response rates," said Anthony Iacovone, CEO and Co-Founder of AdTheorent. "Our technology allows us to identify users that are extremely likely to convert and it bids on those impressions accordingly.
