Nov. 23, 2011 - PRLog -- Mobile action codes in magazine advertising grew significantly from Q1 to Q3 2011 while code use in editorial pages held relatively steady.  According to a new 2011 Q3 study of the top 100 U.S. monthly magazines by Massachusetts-based mobile engagement company, Nellymoser, Inc., action codes in advertisements outpaced editorial for magazine code usage by a considerable 20:1 margin in September – 482 advertisement codes versus 25 editorial codes. This represented a big increase from January when there were seven advertising action codes for each editorial code.

“Advertisers are finding real value in using mobile action codes to drive engagement, brand loyalty and to capture new business,” said John Puterbaugh, CEO of Nellymoser. “Integrating mobile into print campaigns enables advertisers to connect with readers in a way that traditional print-only campaigns without action codes cannot do.”

For its latest mobile action code study, Nellymoser surveyed the top 100 U.S. magazines by circulation and looked at the published issues from July to September 2011. To download a copy of the full report, go to:
