A new report from YouGov, commissioned by mobile marketing company Upstream and provided to TechCrunch before wider release, indicate that people basically feel like there are too many ads, and that they are too pervasive. The situation seems to be a vicious circle. Users are engaging with ads less and less: response rates that were at an average of 7 percent in 1997 have today plummeted down to 0.1 percent for an average online ad. view a reference
Mobile-owning consumers in the UK, Germany and France prefer receiving SMS-based promtions as opposed to other mobile channels, new research published by the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) has revealed. They are generally open to promotional offers, but they have very clear preferences about where they want to reveice them and the type of offers that they like.
