Mobile Marketing: Myths, Truths and Practice

1 year ago by in Slidershare Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

We’re about to enter a world where there are more tablets and smart phones than PCs. Here’s an amazing deck from Michel Lent Mobile Marketing: Myths, Truths and Practice. Definitely a must watch presentation.

Mobile marketing can also be defined as “the use of the mobile medium as a means of marketing communication” or “distribution of any kind of promotional or advertising messages to customer through wireless networks”. More specific definition is the following: “using interactive wireless media to provide customers with time and location sensitive, personalized information that promotes goods, services and ideas, thereby generating value for all stakeholders”.

Mobile marketing is commonly known as wireless marketing. However wireless is not necessarily mobile. For instance, a consumer’s communications with a Web site from a desktop computer at home, with signals carried over a wireless local area network (WLAN) or over a satellite network, would qualify as wireless but not mobile communications.

Consumers are spending 10% of their media attention on their mobile devices while the medium only commands a mere 1% of total ad-spend. Comparatively, the quickly “dying” print medium attracts only about 7% of media-time, but still captures an astonishing 25% of the total U.S. ad-spend, with print receiving 25-times more ad money than mobile. The disparity between the two mediums gives a strong indication as to how much room mobile still has to grow.

Let’s explore 3 myths, 3 truths, 3 practices about Mobile Marketing.
