If you aren’t paying attention to mobile marketing, then you aren’t paying attention.
The mobile advertising opportunities for your branding strategy are massive, consider this…
According to the guys at DigitalBuzzBlog over there are over 5 billion mobile subscribers which is 70% of the worlds population. In the US 9 out of 10 people have mobile phones.
In fact kids are more likely to have a cell phone than to have a book (85% kids have phones and only 73% having books). This is important to you because kids turn into buyers and creating brand affinity at a young age can build your long term marketing strategy.
Do you know what that means for your brand?
It means, get there as fast as you can. Be quick, but don’t hurry.
Which simply means, do your homework to set up the right offer and make sure you have the infrastructure in place to support it. Like everything else, if done right, getting there first can give you a head start straight to profits.
