Infographic: The Mobile World In 60 Seconds

Infographic: The Mobile World In 60 Seconds | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

This article was written by Chris Velazco for Tech Crunch


The infographic from ad exchange, Mobclix in this piece aims to highlight what goes down in the mobile world in 60 seconds. is absolutely fascinating!



****Before you read the excerpt, I thought it was particularly interesting to post one of the comments made by a reader who saw the infograph.  He wasn't the only one that said this was an unfinished report. I think these people are missing the point here.


**This is a mere glimpse, the tip of the iceberg, to give us an idea of the magnitude of this exploding industry, it's not the be all end all report. I'm very careful what I post, I don't want to add to the noise, so look at the infographic with this in mind.


One reader's comment:


Ulrich Weihler:  "Nice idea, but major things for spending mobile time are missing, surfing content, using communities, using apps, internet usage, downloading music and videos, listening to music or watching videos, sms and actually phone connecions to talk, etc.. that's why the chart looks a bit strange."


Excerpt:


"In case you were curious, in the time it took me to write out that first sentence, over 23,000 iOS apps were downloaded from Apple’s App Store.


** Mobclix used data directly from app publishers, industry sources, and a little old-fashioned arithmetic to get the 60 second stats you see below.


Of course, considering Mobclix’s background, there had to be some ad-related factoids in the mix too.


Mobile advertisers will be glad to know (if they didn’t already) that some 4,111 ads are tapped each minute, though it almost makes you wonder how many ads were ignored in the same 60 second timeframe.

Embracing Mobile Commerce in 2011

Embracing Mobile Commerce in 2011 | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it
The following is a guest post James Bentham on behalf of Mobile Interactive Group.


With the majority of large retailers in the UK choosing to capitalise on the mobile commerce channel, those who have been left behind are now scrabbling to catch up.


**Still in its relative infancy, mCommerce has developed quickly throughout 2011 and shows no signs of slowing. The brands who have benefitted most were the ones not afraid to innovate and take some risks.


Amazon and eBay both set up strong mobile presences during 2010 and both have seen huge returns, forging a path for other brands to follow. Amazon optimised their site for mobile phones as well as offering apps for the iPhone and Android operating systems in various territories.


**They were one of the first to introduce cross platform accounts, with users able to add products to their basket via their mobile phone and then purchase them next time they log in on a computer.

Digital Disruption is Increasing - What You Need To Know

Digital Disruption is Increasing - What You Need To Know | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

Welcome to a world of disruption, with twists of generational difference, tectonic ad spend changes, and lots of confused citizens.


Ken Doctor wrote this great piece — author of Newsonomics and longtime watcher of the business side of digital news


It was hard to decide what to excerpt, it was so good.......


Intro:


Okay, it’s 11 p.m., and you are in bed.


What do you reach for? There’s no wrong answer here, but if you are in the news/information mode, you may reach for your Android smartphone or scoop up your iPad. So many choices, at this oddly news-consuming time of day. We know that evening is when tablet usage peaks, and, yes, such companies as Zite tell me that 11 is a top hour.


Digital disruption is now increasing. Audiences are even more up for grabs than they were a couple of years ago.


As Ipsos OTX President Bruce Friend recently put it: iPhones and Androids are, yes, our lovers. “It’s almost always turned on. It never leaves you. You have an intimate relationship with it.” Yet love is so short-term these days: “The tablet is rapidly becoming a companion or even a competitor to the smartphone. Tablets reduce smartphone as entertainment devices. The tablet will take the place of that.”


We’ve got so many emerging studies of our fast-changing habits that comparing them can leave you dazed and confused. What they all add up to, though, is a simple learning: Digital disruption is now increasing.


Let’s look at some of this emerging data, and begin to make sense of what it means and where revenue is likely to flow into the next several years, in the newsonomics of disruption.

Don't Make These 9 Mobile Marketing Mistakes

Good information for B2B marketers. The mental block that B2B marketers have revolved around is the perception that mobile is purely a consumer play.

 

Intro:

 

As technology continues to grow at a rapid pace, your marketing approaches must continue to evolve and adapt.  Mobile devices are becoming the primary communication tool for 50% of all execs who say they prefer making purchases on mobile web vs phone.

 

"We're in the early innings of a massive phenomenon," said Mary Meekerrecently in regard to the mobile revolution. Mary has been dubbed "Queen of the Net" by Barron's Magazine and is a well-known venture capitalist.That said, B2B companies have been slow to move into mobile, which is concerning since mobile is especially pervasive in this market segment.

 

On the contrary, 72% of the U.S. workforce is mobile according to IDC, and Forbes tells us that more than 70% of executives under age 40 classify mobile as their primary communications tool, with 50% of all execs preferring business purchases on mobile web vs. phone.

From Gigaom

"Check-ins have given consumers a glimpse of the power of location and the deals they unlock. But there’s another world awaiting as mobile users learn to appreciate the era of “persistent location,” in which a user’s location is passively used to deliver relevant information. That’s the term used by Xtify CEO Josh Rochlin, whose company has built a geo-messaging platform that allows companies and brands to target their customers with location-specific messages.

Mobile Twitter Users Share 3X As Much As Facebook Users

Mobile Twitter Users Share 3X As Much As Facebook Users | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

Interesting statistics on mobile users from mediabistro.com/alltwitter


Here's the bottomline:


Facebook integration generates twice as many sharing events (defined as sharing, liking or following) as Twitter integration. However, that discrepancy is only due to Facebook’s larger overall userbase.


Twitter users do share three times as often as Facebook users, but when you look at active users, Twitter pulls even further ahead.


**Twitter’s active users generate 50 events per 1,000 users, while Facebook only generates 11 events per 1,000 active users.


The study examined all mobile apps with 500 or more monthly active users connecting to Twitter or Facebook across Android, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7.


Of these apps, they found that 20 percent connected to either Facebook or Twitter directly. Out of that 20 percent, ten percent connected to Facebook only, nine percent connected to both Twitter and Facebook,


**while only 1 percent connected to Twitter alone. That's interesting, more sharing coming from a smaller percent of apps

Leveraging Mobile Marketing In the Moment - What You Need To Know

Leveraging Mobile Marketing In the Moment - What You Need To Know | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

This article was originally written for, and appeared in, Fashion’s Collective (www.fashionscollective.com) by Scott Forshay from mobiluxe.com. It was curated by Janlgordon on scoopit covering her topic: The Explosion of the Mobile Web and Beyond.


This is an excellent article for everyone who is interested in marketing their business in moble.

Here's what caught my attention:


Immediacy Variable


The mobile medium is in the moment. Unlike other communications vehicles that are stationary and heavily presentation-oriented, the mobile medium is actionable, time sensitive, on the go, and always on.


**Given the limited time intervals of engagement opportunity, brands must ensure that communications are crisp and the call to action is clear, concise, and quick to participate in.


The mobile medium represents the most powerful mechanism for delivering contextually relevant consumer-brand communications yet experienced in marketing.


**To take advantage of its unique capabilities, however, successful marketing strategies must evolve beyond the employment of a unidirectional approach to communicating with customers.


**The digital natives of today’s hyper-connected world seek contextual relevance in their engagements with brands. Their experience is defined not only by the message itself, but the context in which the message was presented.


**Marketers who effectively solve the variables associated with the mobile medium will provide unique experiences for consumers, irrespective of the constraints of time or space, in ways differentiated, highly relevant, and intensely personal.


**Only then will they realize the power and influence of marketing in the moment.

The Role of Mobile in the Transmedia Brand Narrative

The Role of Mobile in the Transmedia Brand Narrative | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

Scott Forshay posted this wonderful piece on his blog mobiluxe.com today. Great information and insights as always.


This article was originally written for, and appeared in, Fashion’s Collective (www.fashionscollective.com)


Intro: (Sorry this is so long, it was so good, it was hard to edit)


The essence of any coveted brand is the story it tells. Its history conveys mystery, passion, and intrigue and creates in consumers an insatiable desire to be among a select few bit players in the theatricality of the brand experience. These narratives are communicated through a variety of channels. Artful photography displayed in print tells a tale. The runway provides the dramatic stage. The store is the epicenter of the encounter.


Digital media voices a story and the shared experience platform enabled by social media allows the consumer to contribute to the brand dialogue.


Successful brands tell stories and deliver experiences through each medium uniquely, artfully orchestrating events that leverage the inherent strengths of each in an ornamental array of disconnected, yet consistent, transmedia vignettes.


The question remaining to be effectively addressed, however, is how best to weave these disconnected encounters together in a more unified fashion – how best to allow consumers the ability to carry the narrative with them, irrespective of time or space.


That is, until now.


The mobile medium is inherently transitive in nature, providing the vehicle for consumers to navigate an ever-evolving ecosystem of digital screens. Aware of location, sensitive to time, and ever connected, the mobile medium delivers contextual relevance to brand communications and allows marketers to truly engage consumers in the moment. Unlike other more stationary channels for consumer interaction, successful strategies for mobile marketing require precision aim at moving targets.


The mobile medium is unique in its ability to transport the brand’s narrative in transmedia storytelling models. Given that the device is ever connected, contextually relevant, and always within arms’ reach,


**the opportunities for brand marketers to engage consumers with consistency, relevance, and personalization are tremendous.

Great information!

Excerpt:
Mobile is an action-oriented medium. Mobile shoppers are moving targets, so stationary forms of traditional branded engagements need not apply. Effective mobile marketing strategies accentuate the unique strengths of the medium and must work to solve the numerous elements of variability associated with marketing in the moment.

The mastery of managing high levels of volatility will prove to be of great worth. The opportunity to engage consumers in a contextually relevant manner, based on knowledge of both time and space, with campaigns that provide increased interaction and social relevance, is unrivaled in any other communications medium.
