Shift found that:

  • Entertainment achieved the highest click-through rates during the period, at 1.8 percent, followed by consumer packaged goods at 0.9 percent.
  • Auto and entertainment achieved the most efficient costs per click.
  • Auto also had the largest increase in CTRs compared with the first quarter of 2014, 48 percent.
  • The top five verticals using Shift’s platform — auto, CPG, entertainment, financial services and telecommunications – saw increases of at least 200 percent in CTR year-over-year.

Shift added:

The increase in CTR across the board means advertisers are reaching the right people at the right time, and as a result, they are taking action.
