Including mobile advertising popularity

A short update looking at the variation of online advertising in Europe which I hope will be interesting for marketers working across different markets.

Mobile advertising popularity

This is the main reason I thought it would be worth sharing this new research - it's the first compilation I've seen of mobile advertising popularity. Despite the hype about mobile Internet usage overtaking desktop usage , mobile is still a small proportion of overall ad spend overall.


It's around 2-5% in most countries, but > 10% in Finland which perhaps gives an indication of future trends.
