Just Who Is the Cross-Device User?

Just Who Is the Cross Device User Just Who Is the Cross Device User?Marketers are more and more focused on cross-device advertising. That’s due to the fact that users are working with multiple devices — and not all from the same provider. The profile of this consumer constitutes valuable information. Just who is this cross-device user?

Studying a new infographic from Drawbridge, an ad platform with a focus on cross-device marketing, one learns that a typical multi-device user has 2.5 devices. Of those users, 60 percent choose Android or iOS for both their phone and tablet.

Interestingly, Apple users are more loyal to Apple than Android users are to Android when it comes to selecting a second device. Drawbridge discovered that of iPhone owners who own a tablet, 78 percent own an iPad.  Android phone owners  choose Android tablets only 44 percent of the time.

Women are “more loyal” than men, when demographics are examined by gender. Drawbridge stats shows that 68 percent of multi-device females go with the iPhone/iPad combo, while just 23 percent of males go the all-Apple route. And here’s another nugget: males are almost twice as likely (43 percent) to go the all-Android route.

These statistics are really relevant due to new app based marketing technologies. However, it is interesting to note that sms is a feature that is able to reach any type of phone, no matter what carrier or OS is being used. This is why it is important to retain a strong sms campaign now and in the near future because it is a "universal" solution.
