“If you don’t start understanding mobile marketing now – ahead of the curve – you might lose out on the biggest opportunity since the invention of online marketing," says Mongoose Metrics chief executive Bradley E. Reynolds. In the paper, “Mobile Marketing for Business – Part I, An Overview,” Reynolds provides the hard data, detailed-examples and a few prognostications behind this assertion.

In the 10-page paper, “Mobile Marketing for Business – Part I, An Overview” you’ll learn:

The Numbers: A treasure-trove of vetted statistics and resources citing current mobile research. For example, according to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), cell phone use is far higher than Internet use. At the end of 2009 there were 4.6 billion cell phone subscriptions worldwide (76 percent of the world’s 6.8 billion people) while only 26 percent of world population uses the Internet. Sources include Pew Internet Project, Gartner, Inc., Forrester Research, the Tower Group, Morgan Stanley, the Mobile Marketing Association and more.

What’s Working Now: Examples of best-practices from brands such as Subway, Sephora, Starbucks and the Cleveland Clinic.

The Current Drawbacks: A robust discussion of today’s limitations in a world driven by the need for instant access to accurate, easy-to-use information all the time.

The Upside: When you understand widespread mobile device usage combined with consumers’ insatiable need and growing comfort with brand interactions, you have powerful data to inspire action. Forrester Research predicted that in 2014 interactive marketing will approach $55 billion and represent 21 percent of all marketing purchases. Additionally, Forrester predicts that mobile marketing – a subset of interactive marketing – will rise at 27 percent (compound annual growth rate) over the period 2009 – 2014, topping out at $1.27 billion by then.

The Future of Mobile: Where will mobile marketing and advertising be in five to 10 years? How will new technologies for improving user interactions change the game? How will marketers use advanced attribution analytics to improve ROI? You’ll find the answers to these questions as well as concrete action steps for commencing a mobile marketing strategy.

Parts two and three of the series will continue with “Mobile Marketing—The Future of Social Interaction Lies in Increasing Your Happiness – Part II” and “Mobile Attribution Analytics – Call Tracking for Mobile – Part III.”

About Call Tracking
Call tracking is one method of lead generation measurement that brings substantial and highly measurable insight to the issue of understanding online-to-offline (web-to-phone) conversions. It enables clients to migrate from merely tracking the number of phone calls they receive from online advertising campaigns to understanding each caller’s online behavior and buying persona.

Call tracking (with local or toll-free numbers) enables businesses to answer formerly mysterious marketing questions such as:

  • Do my Web marketing campaigns generate phone calls?
  • Do these phone calls generate revenue?
  • Do certain pages or sections of my website cause visitors to pick up the phone? Do they take action over the phone?
  • Do prospects who call end up back on the site? Do they end up purchasing online?

More importantly, call tracking allows businesses to calculate financial success for every form of advertising they are paying for. With call tracking, marketers now have an increasingly powerful tool to not only measure -- but also analyze -- offline conversions (phone calls) to more effectively determine success and make informed spending decisions.
