Unlocking HTML5 Opportunities for Digital Ad Campaigns

While surfing through Google Think Insights, I've come across an interesting study in which almost 300 professionals from creative and digital media agencies were polled on how they develop digital ads for desktop, smartphones and tablets. The study found that although there're more end users in HTML5 compatible environment today, the vast majority of digital media houses still design their ads primarily for PCs.

Reasons why many agencies stay away from mobile app developing for smartphones and tablet screens are:

  1. Lack of demand / interest from clients
  2. Re-using existing desktop ad versions instead of creating the new ones optimized for mobile and tablet screens
  3. Inability to use creatives across all platforms
  4. This is a time consuming effort

  • Ability to place ads within mobile and tablet devices
  • Ability to create more appealing and engaging ad designs
  • Ability to develop more interactive ads
  • Ability to traffic one ad creative across multiple distribution channels
