On 22nd February 2016 Google matched its ad placements on desktops with mobile searches. Instead of three ads above the organic search results and a flexible number of ads to the right, there will now be four ads shown above and three below the organic search, as is currently found on smartphones and tablets. This reduction in ads on the first results page has not led to price increases as was feared at first. We have analyzed for you, what consequences this has for advertisers.

Peak online spending coincides with prime TV time (8pm to 11pm). This has been shown by our current customer journey analysis which examined around 1.2 million online purchases from eleven sectors (including fashion, travel, electronics) between 1st April and 20th June 2015. Webshops not only register more traffic during prime time but also the best conversion rate and above-average order sizes. E-commerce therefore shares its peak revenue generating periods with TV prime time. The use of mobile end-devices such as smartphones and tablets is also disproportionately stronger during prime time. They account for around 40% of traffic and one quarter of all conversions.Read More

TV and internet are the main advertising channels for many advertisers in the e-commerce sector. The sector spent a total of 1.4 billion Euros on TV advertising in 2014 – but the stimulus effect of TV has so far not been effectively tapped into in order to increase performance in the web. With our new solution, TV Triggering, advertisers can now match their online marketing intelligently to TV spots in real time. This provides optimal visibility, higher conversion rates and therefore fuller shopping baskets. Everything can be controlled transparently on one platform with intelliAd’s own technology solutions. intelliAd complements its entire tracking and optimisation toolkit with TV Triggering which, in this constellation, is unique in online marketing.
A total of 13.3 billion Euros was spent by German companies in the first half of 2015 on advertising. But which channel makes what contribution to the buying decisions of customers? We are now offering advertisers the opportunity to use dynamic attribution modelling for optimal control of their advertising channels and measuring their success. Familiar static attribution models (e.g. the last click model) have merely evaluated the position of touchpoints within the customer journey. With Dynamic Attribution intelliAd has created self-learning modelling which relies on intelligent algorithms. This results in the best possible mapping of the actual advertising effect. Read More
