How to Master "in the Moment" in Mobile Marketing

How to Master "in the Moment" in Mobile Marketing | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond |

This piece was written by one of my favorite people, Scott Forshay for iMedia Connection. Great information you need to know to engage and do business effectively with the mobile audience.

No matter what business you're in, you can't avoid the always connected mobile audience. You can no longer market at them, you have to learn to market to context and, in turn, remain (or become) relevant.

Here's are the highlights of this article:

The variables associated with a successful mobile marketing campaign are:

**the immediacy, mapping, interaction, and collective aspects

**Each variable must be planned for to deliver a relevant experience between brand and customer, and to strengthen this mutual connection

**Today's digital-native consumer is empowered with more information and access to brands than ever before

**They are also hyper-connected to an influential social graph where tribal knowledge is constantly being shared

**The margin for error in any connection is slight, so considerations must be made for each changeable element to ensure the experience is on brand and on point

Here is one thing of the points that caught my attention:


**The mobile medium is in the moment. Unlike other communications vehicles that are stationary and heavily presentation-oriented, the mobile medium is:


**time sensitive 

**on the

**always on

**Given the limited time intervals of engagement opportunity, brands must ensure that communications are:


**call to action is clear, consise and quick to          

    participate in

12 Areas to Watch as Mobile-Internet Evolves

12 Areas to Watch as Mobile-Internet Evolves | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond |

I selected this piece by Vkhosla because he helps us to see the internet/mobile space as it continues to unfold which might help you to discover new opportunities or see something you might not have even thought of yet.


We are in a whole new world of platforms, a post-PC era, which I’d more aptly describe as the always/everywhere era, finally, and that means a whole new set of opportunities.

The author has identified 12 areas where some disruptive or large new segment ideal will take off, but says, it's clear there are many. He also hopes that we can supply 12 or more places to look.

What particularly caught my attention:

**Data Reduction or Filters (Siri, Donna, Recorded Future, and many others):

**“Reducing, filtering and processing data streams to deliver the information or action that is relevant to you.”

**It is time for tools (our proxies or agents on the web) to start reducing the amount of information coming at us

**Education models that dramatically reduce the cost and increase the availability of quality learning

the role gamification can play in increasing student interest and social can play in increasing peer and teacher support and assistance.

**Emotion (Foodspotting, Ness, Instagram): “Services that evoke strong emotions in users

**Social Next (intersecting with all the interest graph stuff and verticals

**“Social as a useful and productive part of lives

**enabling collaboration and deep community building around the world in specific areas.

**Interest-based networks

**User driven content that maps to people’s interests both for a better user experience and better targeting

Personal Collaborative Publishing (Pinterest, Tumblr, storify,

**“Truly free press with no barriers to entry and personalized interest-based curation.”

**This trend seems to be moving forward fairly rapidly and looks very promising

Marketplaces & Disintermediation:

**“Remove the middle man, increase market efficiency and produce better results, faster“

**Marketplaces are about economic efficiency and active engagement and more and more of them will keep emerging
