Mobile phone-based advertising


Do you find mobile phone adverts useful? graph of japanese reported on another new regular survey series from goo Research, this time being a look at the display of mobile advertisements.


Between the 11th and 13th of July 2011 1,094 mobile phone-using (including smartphones) members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private mobile phone-based questionnaire. 59.3% of the sample were female, 3.2% in their teens, 27.0% in their twenties, 37.5% in their thirties, 23.6% in their forties, and 8.8% aged fifty or older.

I’ve seen advertisements on my mobile, but as the default iMode home page has an advertisement, I’m surprised that as many as 5.7% had not seen advertisements; perhaps as the ads are so well blended in that most of that 5.7% haven’t actually realised they are seeing them.
