The mobile path-to-purchase in Saudi Arabia

Tuesday December 6, 2016 @ 10:52

It is estimated that by the end of 2016, 70.5% of the Saudi Arabian population will own a smartphone, equating to nearly 20 million people in total. Mobile has not only changed the way consumers behave both online and offline; but it has changed how brands connect with consumers, and in an increasingly fragmented media environment has thrown up a whole host of new and exciting planning implications.

Emerging markets and multi-country survey company On Device Research has increased its mobile survey guidelines to 50 questions; new question types, improved device and network connectivity speeds and increased consumer acceptance have allowed more questions to fit into On Device Research’s 20 minutes mobile survey recommendation.

Data released today by the mobile ad effectiveness specialists On Device Research provides proof that campaigns which pack an emotional punch deliver an uplift in purchase intent over four times greater than those which do not. Newly unearthed insight from On Device’s database of 170 mobile ad effectiveness studies also shows that the use of emotion has a brand multiplier effect throughout the branding funnel: from brand awareness, through to consideration and purchase intent.

  • How can mobile advertising help to nudge this all-important but difficult to influence demographic to buy?
  • What mobile format works best in driving the millennial along the consideration funnel?
  • How best to arrest the younger millennial’s attention whilst on their most loved digital gadget, the smartphone?

By Matthew Dodd, MD Global Media Effectiveness, On Device Research

We are often asked what format works best:

  • Is video worth the incremental cost?
  • Do banners still work?
  • Which format is best for driving call to action vs brand awareness?

In order to answer these questions we delved into our 45,000 / 150 study normative databank to unearth the answers.

Multi-Country Research Only Works Via Mobile

Meb Gafur, June 2016

Mobile is the most reliable method for surveying both emerging and developed markets since it:

  • Delivers more representative samples than desktop recruited surveys
  • It is more accurate than face to face when compared to real world sales data

On Device Research recently conducted “research on research” analysis of mobile surveys’ ability to gain representative data from across the world. In order to get a good geographic spread we analysed data from surveys in the UK, India, Malaysia and South Africa.

A new passive measurement technique demonstrates mobile’s ability to deliver significant brand gains across all stages of the awareness funnel, thanks to the unique emotional bond with our phones, which taps into a raft of need states, contexts and formats in a way that no other media can offer

By Matthew Dodd, MD Global Media Effectiveness, On Device Research

Last month I looked at how important emotion was to building top of mind brand awareness. This month I wanted to share with you the advertiser categories that are making the most from their in-app investments across the broader ad effectiveness funnel.
