“Expanded Mobile Ad Unit Sizes Whitepaper” Designed to Encourage Experimentation and Innovation, and Provide a Foundation for Developing Industry Best Practices

New York, London, UK, Singapore & Sao Paulo: June 3, 2010 - The Mobile Marketing Association (MMA), today published a whitepaper that provides the industry with a concise, actionable overview of widely used display ad unit sizes measuring 320 pixels in width or larger. These ad units represent new opportunities for brands, agencies and other members of the mobile marketing ecosystem to engage with their audience on large-screen smartphones and tablets.

The “Expanded Mobile Ad Unit Sizes Whitepaper” includes several examples of banner and full-screen ad units in use today on large-screen devices, and is intended to encourage further experimentation. The paper also invites companies to share best practices with the MMA’s Mobile Advertising Committee to influence future additions to the “Global Mobile Advertising Guidelines.” The MMA’s “Global Mobile Advertising Guidelines” are widely used in the market today and are based on best practices and optimal consumer experiences, currently on screen sizes of 300 pixels in width and smaller.

“By fostering a discussion of options and best practices, the “Expanded Mobile Ad Unit Sizes Whitepaper”  is the latest example of the MMA’s commitment to anticipating and enabling emerging opportunities in mobile marketing,” said Kristine van Dillen, MMA Director of Industry Initiatives and Partnerships. “We are very excited about this major first step toward defining ad units in a rapidly growing segment, while ensuring consumer acceptance of mobile display advertising.”
