Demographic Variables
The demographic variables for the sample were obtained by using ACORN Star classifications. The classifications include the average age, level of income and education as well as lifestyle preferences of people living in certain geographical areas.

As Urban (2004) states, modern consumer behavior is increasingly hard to predict. Perhaps the reason for this lies in the notion that demographics do not provide accurate representations of contemporary consumers and their lifestyles. Therefore it is increasingly important to target the actual needs of consumers. When when it comes to mobile advertising, brand attitude may not have such a central role in the formation of purchase intentions as suggested by previous research. Instead, the advertisement itself influences purchase intentions.

Therefore if the offer presented in the advertisement is interesting or relevant enough, the respondent may react immediately regardless of
