Top Mobile Advertising - With the Bring! Ad-Platform

After advertising spending slumped by 20% at the start of the corona pandemic in April 2020, the industry and the development over the course of the pandemic took a turn for the better. Although the total net volume of the advertising market in Germany was reduced in 2020 due to the corona pandemic (only EUR 42.31 billion instead of the forecast EUR 48.6 billion), growth is nevertheless in sight again for this year. 

In Switzerland, the situation is similar: the Swiss advertising market recorded a decline of 14 percent, with April also being the "front-runner" here, with a slump of 40 percent. Here, too, spending is expected to increase in 2021.

Where to put the advertising budget?

Particularly with regard to the planning and spending of advertising media, FMCG brands and retailers are often faced with the question of where to place their budget most effectively in order to reach their customers effectively. 

Advertising with mobile formats has already been particularly worthwhile for years, as the use of smartphones is constantly increasing year after year. The smartphone has become a fixed companion for every consumer. A similar relevance can be seen in Switzerland. 

In addition, there are advertising formats that reach consumers at the most important time of all - during the purchase decision! This is exactly where the shopping app Bring! comes in.

Innovative mobile advertising during shopping planning

The mobile advertising platform of the shopping app Bring! offers FMCG brands and retailers a variety of opportunities to sustainably expand the reach and brand awareness of their products. This leads to more sales of the products.

In the Bring! App, brands and retailers have different options for anchoring their products in the minds of Bring! users during the shopping planning process and thus effectively contributing to the purchase decision. Compared to classic advertising, the Bring! Shopping app has a number of advantages: The ad formats are precisely targeted and minimize scatter loss, because they reach consumers precisely when they are planning and deciding what they want to buy.

Purchase intent-based advertising offers tremendous added value

Advertising at the time of the purchase decision, on the other hand, functions, for example, as a reminder or amplifier of previous advertising messages, but also as independent inspiration.
