Daily time spent on mobile devices is now overtaking daily time spent in front of a TV, as revealed in a recent study by Millward Brown. To help determine what marketers can and should be doing with the exponential growth in mobile device usage, Daniel Rowles offers a practical and hands-on guide to designing, implementing and measuring an effective mobile strategy.
Mobile Marketing starts with an in-depth review of the mobile environment, the technology itself — both hardware and software — and goes further to emphasize the importance of understanding the user journey rather than specific devices. Rowles offers an understanding of what the mobile consumer actually wants to achieve; of technology change and adoption, devices and platforms; of mobile usage statistics and, finally, presents his thoughts on the future of mobile marketing. He thenÂ provides a tactical toolkit that includes discussion of mobile sites and responsive design; how to build, market and maintain apps; uses of social media in a mobile context; mobile search and search engine optimization [SEO]; mobile advertising; augmented reality; QR codes; near field communication [NFC];Short Messaging Services [SMS] and mobile analytics. Along with helpful graphs and tips for further reading, the book includes several international case studies that illustrate the potential pitfalls and rewards of mobile marketing initiatives.
The book is a useful and compelling read, designed both for those new to mobile marketing and those looking for advice on how to better incorporate mobile into other marketing activities. Combining theoretical understanding of mobile's role in the marketing arena and practical exercises, Rowles shows how to build a top-down strategy, encompassing all consumer touch points, to future-proof businesses against customers' ever-changing mobile interaction with brands.
How the smartphone can become a personal concierge (not a stalker) in the mobile marketing revolution of smarter companies, value-seeking consumers, and curated offers.
Consumers create a data trail by tapping their phones; businesses can tap into this trail to harness the power of the more than three trillion dollar mobile economy. According to Anindya Ghose, a global authority on the mobile economy, this two-way exchange can benefit both customers and businesses. In Tap, Ghose welcomes us to the mobile economy of smartphones, smarter companies, and value-seeking consumers.
Drawing on his extensive research in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and on a variety of real-world examples from companies including Alibaba, China Mobile, Coke, Facebook, SK Telecom, TelefÃ³nica, and Travelocity, Ghose describes some intriguingly contradictory consumer behavior: people seek spontaneity, but they are predictable; they find advertising annoying, but they fear missing out; they value their privacy, but they increasingly use personal data as currency. When mobile advertising is done well, Ghose argues, the smartphone plays the role of a personal conciergeâa butler, not a stalker.
Ghose identifies nine forces that shape consumer behavior, including time, crowdedness, trajectory, and weather, and he examines these how these forces operate, separately and in combination. With Tap, he highlights the true influence mobile wields over shoppers, the behavioral and economic motivations behind that influence, and the lucrative opportunities it represents. In a world of artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, wearable technologies, smart homes, and the Internet of Things, the future of the mobile economy seems limitless.
