Social media ads CPM worldwide Q1 2017 - Q1 2019

Social media advertising cost-per-mille (CPM) worldwide from 1st quarter 2017 to 1st quarter 2019 (in U.S. dollars)

by A. Guttmann, last edited May 17, 2019
Social media ads CPM worldwide Q1 2017 - Q1 2019 The cost-per-mille of advertising on social media was estimated at 4.73 U.S. dollars in the first quarter of 2019. In other words, advertisers had to pay this much to have their ads viewed by a thousand potential customers. Social media CPM is considerably higher in the final quarters of each year, reaching close to six dollars. The surge in costs is prompted by increased demand for advertising space during that time, as brands compete to win over prospective clients.
Is social media advertising profitable?

According to recent calculations, social media impression numbers have improved year-on-year by close to 20 percent, which means that more and more advertising is viewed by social network users. However, this is mainly true for more passive types of ads such as video or stories. When it comes to traditional forms of advertising on social media the situation is reversed – clicks and clickthrough rates are decreasing. It might be because of this ever-changing environment that global marketers are divided on whether or not they are able to measure social media marketing ROI.
