Rich media advertisements on the iPad are delivering high levels of user engagement, according to campaign metrics from textPlus, PointRoll and AdMarvel. textPlus, an ad-supported mobile application that allows free unlimited texting over WiFi and on the iPad, was among an exclusive group to debut optimized apps for the iPad launch in April. It partnered with PointRoll, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gannett Co., Inc. and the leading provider of digital marketing solutions, to create the first iPad ads for leading advertisers.

Campaigns that ran the first four weeks after the iPad launch delivered average interaction times across advertisers of 30 seconds, and as high as 53 seconds for one advertiser. Time spent with each ad correlated with the amount of content included in the ads. In addition, interaction rates (measuring the number of people tapping to expand and engaging with the ads, as a percentage of impressions) ranged from .9% to 1.5% in the first month of the campaign, up to 6 times the benchmark for comparable click-to-expand ads on the desktop. In addition, 67% of users who viewed a video component of the ad in the app watched it all the way through, compared to 53% completion rate for desktop. These findings show that the iPad can be a successful supplement to a 360-degree campaign across devices to strengthen and further lift audience engagement.

The partnership leveraged existing online brand campaigns built by PointRoll and optimized them for the iPad. For Ford, textPlus and PointRoll extended the Lincoln MKS campaign into a full-screen click-to-expand advertisement utilizing the large iPad canvas to create an unprecedented advertising experience. Video and an interactive image gallery enabled users to engage directly with the brand. Users were also able to interact with the landing page right within the ad itself. See the demo here.

“The ability to engage so effectively with our target consumers on the iPad has been terrific,” said Scott Kelly, Ford’s Digital Marketing Manager. “The combination of PointRoll’s sophisticated technology and the highly interactive nature of the textPlus app has allowed us to extend our presence into another powerful channel. We were happy to be among the first advertisers on the iPad, especially considering none of us had even seen the device before we launched these campaigns.”

“Our rich media iPad app ad banners expand to fill the entire iPad canvas, engaging users in a way that standard ads just can’t. It’s a totally unique consumer experience that really enables advertisers to engage with their customers,” said Polly Lieberman, Vice President of Advertising Sales for textPlus.

“PointRoll is committed to delivering engagement no matter what the device, and the iPad touch screen gives marketers an opportunity to truly make an impression,” said Jason Tafler, CEO of PointRoll. “Our clients are seeing unprecedented levels of interaction, which is giving the entire industry an opportunity to rethink how they engage with consumers. And marketers can view mobile and tablet metrics alongside their other campaign metrics, allowing them to get a holistic view of how campaigns are performing across media.”

PointRoll and textPlus implemented the campaign with mutual partner AdMarvel Inc., using AdMarvel’s mobile advertising SDK for iPad. The parties will continue to work together to produce rich media ads for textPlus on the iPad and other devices.
