Asda changes the way they use mobile advertising

Retailer launches first Rich Ad Messaging campaign

Asda has launched the world’s first Rich Ad Messaging campaign. Engaging their Easter audience via a scrolling ad message on their mobile devices
while they browse the web and apps, the campaign then combines this mass broadcast execution with the high impact value of Rich Media engagement.

Developed by Manchester based Regital, in conjunction with Carat UK, the campaign for the retailer reveals three consumer touch points through ticker-tape Ad Messaging, rich-media including current TV ad, and then finally the destination website.

Ian Vint, Director of Regital said "The immediate response from mobile ad messaging is familiar to brand advertisers, so it takes a progressive client to embrace the opportunities that can be gleamed from redirection. By introducing rich media post Ad Message, we are able to showcase content the consumer is already connected with, before they land on the destination
site. Third screen advertising is commonplace in the industry, but this is the first mobile campaign to combine these unique executions, and is breaking new boundaries.”
