What is a mobile display ad and where does it show up?

We realize that not everyone in the world knows exactly what a mobile display ad is, so we thought it’d be a good idea to take a minute to lay some groundwork.  Consider it a refresher if you’re already “in the know”.  And if you’re not, then welcome.


A mobile display ad is an advertisement that appears on mobile devices, primarily on smartphones and tablets.  Usually they look something like this:



Mobile display ads exist on a variety of mobile websites and apps…you may have seen them on your favorite mobile game (Solitaire never gets old!).   You won’t, however, see mobile display ads on Facebook, Twitter or any other app that has its own ad network – that’s where you’ll see “Sponsored Ads”.  If you’re on the lookout, you will see these types of ads at the top, bottom or even middle of your screen.  Like so:

As you move up in the world of virtual (online) business, you will want to take a serious look at the way you advertise or publicize your products and services or organization's activities, respectively. The typical perception of differentiation won't address this in a consistently agile manner. That is where we have employed DropIn to give us a definitive edge.

Vendors and merchants with really tight margins and seasonal or weather affected revenue streams must be ready to change the focus of their marketing and redirect the public's attention from static traditional messages. We have found that DropIn help's us augment the seasonal pitch while building brand in a small local but highly competitive marketplace.

Thanks, Crave-Labs. Keep up the good work!
