Burst Media Mobile Usage Survey Provides Marketers Insight into How and Where to Spend Dollars on Smartphones and Tablets

Results suggest marketers have distinct mobile options to impact decisions at the physical place of purchase--and recall rates of mobile video ads indicate opportunities for branding and awareness

BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT

Fifty-one percent of the US population uses a smartphone and 46% uses a tablet at least once per month, according to eMarketer's 2014 estimates—both up from 2013.1 Given the increase in consumers' use of mobile devices, it is not surprising that mobile advertising spending is seeing a meteoric 83% increase in 2014 (vs. 2013). By 2015, mobile ad spending will grow by another 50% to $26.6 billion.2

 

To better understand the impact the mobile revolution is having on consumer behavior, Burst Media surveyed nearly 750 US online adults aged 18 or older who use a mobile device to access the mobile web and/or applications. We conducted the study in the first three weeks of June and focused on device preference, apps used, reaction to advertising and mobile video consumption.

 

Key Findings

  • Smartphones edge tablets as the primary device for accessing the mobile web and applications. A majority (54.4%) of respondents say smartphones are their go-to device, vs. 32.2% who say tablets.
  • Women generally spend more time than men accessing the mobile web and/ or applications. In a typical day, 74.6% of women vs. 60.5% of men spend at least an hour accessing the mobile web and/or applications from a mobile device. 
  • Mobile browsers are used more than apps. One-third (33.4%) of all respondents say most or all of their mobile time is spent with a mobile browser, vs. 15.8% for apps—26.1% say their time is split equally. 
  • App usage differs by gender and primary device type. One-half (49.8%) of women vs. one-third (32.3%) of men use social media apps in a typical week. 
  • Primary tablet users are more likely than primary smartphone users to have clicked on in-app ads. Three-in-five (61.9%) primary tablet users vs. 54.1% of primary smartphone users have clicked on ads that appear within apps. 
  • Men are more likely to have clicked on an ad within a mobile browser. Three-fifths (63.1%) of men clicked on mobile browser ads vs. 52.3% of women. 
  • Two-thirds of respondents use mobile devices inside retail locations. Among these respondents, 50.4% of women and 37.1% of men have accessed coupons. 
  • The vast majority (80.4%) of respondents watch online videos on their mobile device(s). Nearly 3-in-5 (57.9%) women and 52.1% of men frequently watch videos on their devices via a mobile browser and/or app(s).
