Location, Location, Location – Geo-marketing & Why it Matters [Infographic]

Location, Location, Location – Geo-marketing & Why it Matters [Infographic] | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond |

This piece is from Kissmetrics and it contains some very significant findings for everyone in business today, in the form of one of the better infographics I have seen.

As the world changes and as new technology emerges, the phrase seems to have taken on new meaning.

**Whether you have a retail location or not, you need to pay attention to the location of the consumer, and tailor your marketing message accordingly.

Here are a few very significant statistics that caught my attention:

63% of smartphone users frequently use apps that require them to give their location (2010)

Local online advertising expected to grow 255% to $35b by 2014 (U.S.)

90% of U.S. marketing agencies had clients requesting geographically targeted online ad campaigns (2011).

65% of companies are focusing on geographical context for their mobile marketing tactics (2011).

Cloud Computing & Streaming Of Everything Will Change Media Forever

This is not new information, it's still in its infancy but there will be no avoiding it, this is in everyone's future. Word of caution, never have all your data in one place so do keep your own backup on a hard drive of everything no matter what.


Can you imagine paying a subscription fee and all your data is delivered to you on demand, no downloading on your hard drive, no losing information, consuming content wherever you want it, smartphone, Ipad, computer, whereever......Early adaptors are using this technology now.


Here's an excerpt:


This isn't streaming as you've thought of streaming to date.


Amongst media and marketing professionals, the idea of streaming is more commonly thought of as a way to broadcast live where the data and information is never stored on the consumer's hard drive - they can simply enjoy the content (text, images, audio and/or video) live and "in the moment." That is the streaming of yesterday.


The streaming of today looks very different. Take a look at what Apple is attempting with their upcoming iCloud product. The idea is that all of your content (or the data you used to save on your hard drive) will now be stored "in the cloud." This way, whether you're opening your laptop, tinkering with your iPad or roaming with your iPhone, the content that you want can be streamed from one central location and acts as if it is resident on your hard drive (it's also pretty great if your hardware crashes... now you won't lose everything).


Now, push this even further and imagine that your content is not just the things you have downloaded to date, but it now becomes anything and everything that can be sold via iTunes (and beyond). Suddenly, the notion of streaming has a new paradigm. The world's catalogue of content is now your catalogue.

The Animated History Of The iPhone [Video… Dedicated to Memory of Steve Jobs

The Animated History Of The iPhone [Video… Dedicated to Memory of Steve Jobs | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond |

This is fascinating whether you're an iPhone fan or not, it's pure genius and we certainly will miss Steve Jobs.

"The ongoing talk about the iPhone is probably divided into two camps. Some people are for it, and some are against it.

Ever since this groundbreaking new smartphone was announced and launched, people have been arguing about whether it is actually the best one, the first one or even the most successful one."

****What we know for sure is that the iPhone, no matter what generation it is, is a massively popular smartphone. It’s been sold in ridiculous amounts, and with

****the recent news that the iPhone 4S sold 4 million smartphones in its 3 first days of release, you can’t help but agree that it is a hot gadget for people to own.
