Ad Reaction & Attention Survey — Highlights from EMEA & LATAM

Posted Dec 7, 2021

For ads to be attractive, they need to draw the consumer’s attention. As many other ad networks are emerging, it’s far more challenging than in the past to catch consumers’ attention and keep them interested across the journey. 

While advertisers are in constant competition to promote and market their own apps, products, or services, during this competition, challenges emerge constantly and turn into an important test for advertisers to pass. In this environment where companies need to know and keep up to date with the best practices for capturing and retaining consumer attention, what matters most is tailoring advertisements to the appropriate context. 

In this sense, advertising content needs to engage and persuade the right audience. Today’s consumers will pay significantly more attention to personalized content to entertain them. To clarify how consumers react to ads and are attentive to the content they are exposed to, AdColony conducted its annual Ad Reaction & Attention Survey 2021.

Let’s dig deeper into the ad reactions of mobile users across AdColony’s network and scroll down to download the infographic for all of the insights!
