This comment is in relation to Peixin’s insight on the article the ‘What consumers really want from mobile commerce’. For example, as a consumer I think what we really want from mobile commerce is quality service, easy to use, transparency about security issue and so on. Therefore, as marketers, what they can do is to look into the consumer’s preferences and habits, and then to make some changes to meet the consumers’ needs. More focus on customer experiences can contribute to a better understanding of consumers' needs and wants. Thanks.

Mobile phones have made it really easy for word of mouth to travel so if you expose one person via direct marketing someone you think would be really interested in the mate rail being shared than they will likely pass that information on to there as well since it dosent cost much time or effort to do so now. Social media such as Facebook Twitter or even just emails get more positive responses from people as opposed to the traditional telelmarketing or approaching people on the streets because it gives them the chance to look at the material when they wish and there is no rish involved to hurry up the conversation etc.
