This report provides a concise and highly impactful analysis of AOL's business prospects, competitive analysis, SWOT analysis, and proprietary analysis of the Mobile Advertising Network Vendor Landscape. This must read report will help anyone involved in mobile advertising better understand business strategies, competition and the direction of product offerings and solutions.
- America Online (AOL), once the leading Internet service provider, is rejuvenating its flailing brand by expanding its portfolio of products and services, recruiting talented leadership, and moving assertively to capture market share in the burgeoning mobile advertising industry
- AOL recently decided to discontinue its Platform-A brand and will house all of its advertising functions under the aegis of AOL Advertising. This unit will include the company's premium ad sales on its owned properties, its Advertising.com third-party advertising network, and its AdTech advertising server operations.
- AOL's growing suite of products and services builds on its core competencies in the buy-side and sell side of media. While a merged AOL/Time Warner continuously bolsters its presence in print and online publishing, the company is making great strides in unconventional media solutions, including mobile.
- AOL's rebranding of Platform A into AOL Advertising is a smart move for the beleaguered advertising network that will immediately boost AOL's presence in the mobile space. Behind the strength of the AOL name, AOL Advertising is poised to offer brand managers a unique mobile display and mobile search advertising cadre of solutions with the extensive reach of AOL's network.
- AOL's long-term challenge is to stave off the accelerated efforts of Google and Bing within the mobile space, particularly mobile local search. Although Google, MSN, Yahoo, and America Online dominate the white label search and content aggregator supply side, the authors expect that Google will emerge as the dominant search platform through 2012 when Microsoft has had ample time to innovate Bing into a fierce enough white label competitor.
