SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/02/10 -- Sixty-nine percent of media planners and agencies now use online advertising networks as part of their digital ad buys, representing a 24 percent increase in the past 18 months -- according to a new study conducted by Adify Media. The leading media planners and agencies that participated in the study also reported that branding has become the top priority for online campaigns as compared to direct response, where the industry began.
According to recent research from J.P. Morgan, display spending will rise 10.5 percent this year after a five percent dip last year. The previous display spending dip may be attributed in part to the industry seeking cost-effective reach; Adify Media's survey found more than two-thirds of its respondents use online advertising networks because of their cost effectiveness.
Targeting, transparency, and quality are the top three attributes that media planners look for in online advertising networks. Interestingly, creative capabilities were the least important attribute noted.
"Especially in light of the Dynamic Logic study that found that creative quality is 50 to 75 percent responsible for campaign success or failure, agencies must start evaluating the creative capabilities of networks," said Russ Fradin, president of Adify. "As the industry looks for better ways to engage, not just reach, their audience, brands need to focus on compelling creative that builds an ongoing conversation with consumers and placing it where consumers spend time."
Other key findings from the survey include:
-- More money is being allocated online each quarter: - 56 percent of respondents' budgets were more than $500k in 2008. 73 percent were over $500k in 2009. - In 2009, 37.9 percent of the respondents spend between $1-5 million per quarter on online advertising, 15.2 percent of respondents spend $5-20 million per quarter, and 5.9 percent spend more than $20 million per quarter on online advertising. -- Branding is a major focus for online ad campaigns: - 83 percent of respondents allocate 50 percent or more of their budget to branding vs. direct response. -- The use of ad networks continues to grow: - 69 percent of media planners and agencies now use online advertising networks, compared to only 45 percent who were using ad networks regularly according to Adify Media's May 2008 survey. -- Awareness of vertical ad networks (VANs) continues to grow as a way to reach niche audiences: - 72 percent are familiar with VANs versus 56 percent in 2008.
Adify Media's December survey was completed by 216 media planners, interactive marketing directors, and executives from top agencies including Carat, Mediavest, MPG, Ogilvy, OMD, Starcom, and Universal McCann.
