You might have noticed your ad revenue increase during the last months of the year. The fourth quarter of the financial year is always the best for monetization! It is a key moment for advertisers and they plan to use a large portion of their budget to target consumers during this time period. During this time, the value of ad spaces and the rate of ad campaigns consistently improves. This results in better monetization and more money for your site. Let’s get into the details about why the end of the year is the best time for your ad revenues.
What causes this?
There are general trends in advertising. July and January are the two months when revenues can be at their lowest. There is a decrease in advertisers budgets during these months. This is a result from advertisers saving for money for more lucrative months such as the ones before holidays for instance. Events like Christmas, Mother’s day, Black Friday… lead to more sales for advertisers. If you have noticed an increase in your revenues, don’t worry if the rhythm slows down at the beginning of the year. It will increase again in the spring.
