While advertising within games has increased in popularity, misconceptions about what in-game creative can look like and do still afflict the space. One such misconception is that in-game advertising (IGA) represents potentially annoying or intrusive pop-ups on mobile games or other platforms where people play online. However, there’s more to in-game advertising, strategies and audiences than the misconceptions allow.
As agencies pursue the premium inventory they know reaches their clients’ most engaged and receptive audiences, misconceptions about accessing the highest-quality IGA opportunities abound. For example, premium gaming inventory isn’t just on consoles. Mobile and PC games offer increasingly abundant ad inventories — and plenty of premium games from which advertisers can choose.
