One-Fifth of Apple iOS Users Avoid Ad Targeting in Apps

Apple’s Limit Ad Tracking feature is proving to be a hit among consumers with global rates at around 18%.

Apple’s bulked-up Limit Ad Tracking feature is proving to be a hit among consumers according to this study by adjust. Limit Ad Tracking, or LAT, a setting on iOS devices that lets users prevent in-apps ads from targeted them, as opposed to adblock tools such as Crystal. Although they don’t see an rising trend, it’s interesting to note that about 1/5 users are blocking retargeting. Canada is sitting at about 14.4% LTA as opposed to 20.5% in the US.

If people were more interested in reducing the number of retargeted ads, and if they were aware of the effects of the Limit Ad Tracking settings, we would expect a steadily rising trend throughout the last month as adoption of iOS 10 rises and people become aware of the changes. So far, on a global level, there’s no evidence of an upward trend – the global rates are stagnant, at around 18%.

I personally think this is great to provide such options to users. And to advertisers, well, another reason to build your audience and brand organically, not all based on ads or at least not digital ads as we’seen for 20 years!

Rather, it’s because email allows you to make repeated contact, and that contact is “invasive”. It’s in their mailbox—their inner electronic sanctum. That’s very different from sending out a tweet or posting something on Facebook, where they may or may not see it, because it’s just part of a much larger timeline featuring hundreds of other people. Excerpt from: 5 Reasons Email Marketing Crushes Social Media Marketing for B2B

I’ll add that maybe the most important reason why, is that you own your list, you are not on a third-party platform. For most agency folks, being so busy chasing the latest magic unicorn, we often forget how Email Marketing is essential to our client’s web marketing set of tactics and overall strategy.

It all boils down to how you connect and foster interactions between related inbound channels.
