Mobile Marketing Is King – Mobile Marketing Sales Up 192% Over Last Year | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond |

This piece was written by Steve Olenski for Business 2 Community


For those marketers and advertisers still not sold on the power of mobile marketing and the need to engage their customers and prospects via a mobile website, a report issued by IBM showed that:

**Cyber Monday 2011 increased an incredible 192% over last year.

**And you can expect that number to only go higher next year

Here's what you need to know:

According to a survey conducted by Brand Anywhere and Luth Research:

**51% of consumers more likely to purchase from retailers that have mobile-specific websites

**4.8% of U.S. retailers have mobile-specific websites

**22.8% of the top retail websites (ranked by Alexa®) have mobile-specific websites

**Web retailers could increase consumer engagement by 85% with a mobile-specific website

This article is a bit old now, but it just shows how powerful mobile marketing has become, and it has just gotten bigger since this article was written. 

It says here that 51% of consumers are more likely to purchase from retailers who have a mobile website, and I'm sure this number has just gone up since. Now if you don't have a mobile website you look like you are behind, unless you are a small local business. 

But any big company should make their website mobile friendly and should consider investing in designing the company's own app.

Infographic: The Mobile World In 60 Seconds

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

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."


"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.
