CPM to generate over 33% of revenue of the global internet advertising market
The CPM (Cost Per Thousand) model in digital advertising has gained widespread adoption and generated a significant portion of the industry's revenue in 2022, estimated at over 33%. This method charges advertisers a fixed amount for every 1,000 impressions their ad receives, regardless of clicks or conversions.
This form of online advertising is advantageous for companies and advertisers as it provides wider exposure for their products or service in the internet advertising market. Unlike CPC (cost per click) or CPA (cost per action), CPM requires less maintenance as advertisers only pay when their ads reach a thousand impressions, allowing them to focus on ad quality and creativity rather than click-throughs or conversions.
The average CPM for different ad networks can vary greatly, for instance, Google search ads average around $38.40 per CPM, while Google display network ads average $3.12 per CPM. The cost per mille, however, will depend on various factors such as the ad network, time of year, and ad type.
