I get this question all the time, especially from people who are trying to promote their business. Well, the fact is that mobile ads are so bad that I would rather spend time in my mobile phone than to sit in a coffee shop or restaurant. The first thing that I would do if I had the choice was to walk away.
If you are a business owner who is trying to promote your business, especially a small one, the mobile ads are almost certainly one of the worst things you could be doing. It’s hard to describe the negative impact mobile ads have on a website or a blog; the best I can come up with is that these ads seem to be more distracting and less useful than they are profitable.
Mobile ads are not the only reason for the negative impact of mobile ads, however. There are many people who hate them because they are annoying, and because they seem to detract from the user experience. I don’t really get upset with mobile ads per se, but I do feel that they are a poor use of time.
Mobile ads are the worst type of ad to use. They are intrusive, distracting, and annoying. You can make a mobile ad work better by using a responsive design.
As I mentioned before, mobile ads are bad. But I can’t really explain why. I can only tell you that you probably shouldn’t be using them. I know I’ve seen ads on my phone that I would prefer to never have seen.
It’s not as if I’ve ever seen an ad of any type that I did not want to. But I have a few stories, and I believe they are representative of the many advertisements that Ive been forced to remove from my phone. I can’t remember ever seeing an ad I hadnt wanted to see. I do remember being at an international conference and being forced to have an ad removed because its intrusive.
If you have ever had to delete an ad, it’s probably because it was a particularly annoying one. It’s easy to blame this on the ad company, but there is a simple solution. Put your phone somewhere that you won’t see advertisements (like your car) and just keep it there.
What a ridiculous solution. And they did. They were called “ad blockers” and they were a clever way to stop ads from being “too intrusive” for you. But the problem is that this is not actually a solution. Ad blocking is not going to solve this problem. If you are constantly having to remove ads from your phone, you are going to eventually get to a point where you either have to remove all ads, or you have to disable your phone completely.
And to make it worse, all the ads that you are still seeing are on the phone you are using to view them. This is especially true if you are using a small mobile device, like a tablet.
Basically, it turns out that your mobile phone is getting a lot of advertising from people who are not you. The only way to really reduce this is to allow the advertisers to place ads for you on your phone, or at least let the phone know that you are looking at it. This is not going to happen. We have seen a lot of devices that allow you to disable ads, but that still leaves the possibility that advertisers can still use them to try to sell you something.
