Abstract [en]

Background: Millennials are the largest and most pertinent audience for mobile advertisements and yet, following an extensive literature review, there were no mobile marketing studies which delimited their scope specifically to Millennials. Furthermore, advertisements are complex presentations which are described by both content factors such as playfulness or informativeness, and also media type factors through which the advertisement is delivered. These different factors cause different attitude levels in Millennials.

Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to discuss and analyze different media type, content and context factors of mobile advertisements in order to gauge which of these factors mobile advertisements should possess.

Method: The research has a quantitative approach and is based on a survey design. Both secondary and primary data were used. The primary data collection was conducted with the help of a questionnaire which was distributed online.

Conclusions: The results show that Millennials have the most positive attitude towards advertisements which they were exposed to through Apps, and that the content factor which has the most influence on their attitude is the entertainment value. Therefore, marketers should focus on making highly entertaining ads and delivering them through Apps in order for Millennials to have more positive attitudes towards them.
