And now that so much is happening online, and so many people are at home, those who use ad blockers are not seeing most of the ads advertisers are putting out there. And ad-blocking users are not a small group of people–Acceptable Ads alone reaches over 200 million users. But not all is lost. These users are not against ads and are in most cases willing to see decent and user-friendly versions of ads. In fact, according to a recent study by eyeo, the Ad Blocking Report, 83% of online users would be happy to see ads as long as they are not intrusive and are relevant.
That’s where Acceptable Ads offers a real solution. In fact, we’ve been in play for awhile, and as mentioned we’re reaching 200 plus million users who have consented to seeing nonintrusive ads. We believe that the online world, even before corona, has been needing a revisioning for years. And we’ve been working on that. And still are. In times like these, it’s especially important to think of ways of reaching valuable audiences.
By moving toward an online future of balance, where ads are user-friendly and respectful, and advertisers have attractive monetization options in reaching all these ad-blocking users, we are creating a better web, and offering a smart way for advertisers to deal with the current health crisis and recoup some of their falling CPMs.
Reaching ad-blocking users should not be a struggle, nor should they simply be written off. They are there and using the internet just as much as everyone else right now, and are provenly amenable to better, less-intrusive advertising. Acceptable Ads is a real way to both work toward a better system of online advertising and for dealing with the here-and-now of corona and its consequences to advertisers and their CPMs.
