Worldwide Spending on Mobile Advertising eMarketer Figures: Mobile advertising in US to reach US$ 2.6 billion in 2012 (an 80% increase over 2011) Compare this to expected US Online Advertising: US $ 39.5 billion Hence mobile advertising is only a fraction of advertising spend on the Internet!

Mobile Portal based campaigns (including click-through banner and txt/MMS based ads) which may or may not involve mobile application downloads 3.
