Forrester: Mobile Is The Anti-Channel

Forrester: Mobile Is The Anti-Channel | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

While most marketers continue to think of mobile as a channel — one that runs somewhat parallel to its Internet presence — a new report from Forrester Research says it’s time to reverse that perspective.


“Mobile eliminates the notion of channels by blurring the distinction between the physical and digital worlds,” writes analyst Julie A. Ask. And brands like USAA, using mobile as a way to sell expanded services; Starbucks, which is continually finding new ways to streamline purchasing, or Guinness building passionate beer communities, are finding that “mobile generates new revenue, improves customer relationships and reduces costs throughout all channels.”...

Time to rethink mobile marketing strategies based on this recent Forrester Research study.

2015 Predictions: MobileROI | Mobile Marketing Magazine | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

2014 was a very exciting year for mobile marketers. Innovations like beacons hit the main stage; mobile payments finally received a much-needed boost; and advancements in personalisation and contextualisation had marketers rethinking their approach to mass advertising. It was a year when it was easy to get your head in the clouds, but it’s easy for all of us to get ahead of ourselves, racing to be the first to take advantage of the latest technological advancements without thoroughly thinking through the right strategy.


Below are four things I see marketers getting tripped up on in 2015:...

Google Wants to Make Mobile, Video and Programmatic 'Revolutions' Blasé by 2020

Google Wants to Make Mobile, Video and Programmatic 'Revolutions' Blasé by 2020 | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Philipp Schindler was Google's ad chief for years, but few would know it. Having hailed from Germany, Schindler spent a good portion of his 11 years at Google running its European business before quietly ascending to global chief business officer 13 months ago. Now, for the first time in this role, he sat down with Adweek as he prepares to take the stage on Monday to address the industry at Advertising Week.


Schindler predicts his three favorite "revolutions"—mobile, video and programmatic—will be so common that by 2020 "we will actually look back and laugh that we called them revolutions."
Per Google, two-thirds of smartphone users say they turn to their devices to learn about a product or service after seeing a television commercial.

 

With that in mind, the 45-year-old exec and his team will unveil to the Advertising Week audience a platform that allows brands to see how YouTube ads compare to TV spots for smartphone searches. Google data will show how its YouTube videos outperform linear TV by two times. "We're the prime time for the mobile world," Schindler proclaimed....

Google as prime time for the mobile world is already here according to its global chief business officer Philipp Schindler.

Now It's Official: More Google Searches Are Coming From Mobile Than Desktop

Now It's Official: More Google Searches Are Coming From Mobile Than Desktop | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Following years of speculation about the demise of desktop-based search, Google is officially announcing today that for the first time, more searches come from smartphones and tablets than from laptops and desktops.


Smartphones account for more than half of searches in 10 countries—including the U.S. and Japan—according to Google, which didn't release exact percentages or a full list of countries. But it is playing up mobile at its annual AdWords Performance Summit, being live-streamed this afternoon.


"The purchase funnel is officially dead," proclaimed Jerry Dischler, vp of product management at Google. "What we're seeing are these short bursts of activity that we're calling micro-moments. We see the new challenge for marketers is to be there at those moments anytime, anywhere....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

It's official. Mobile is now the majority in searches.

Emilio Ruano's curator insight, May 5, 2015 7:36 PM

What Will Characterize The Mobile Ecosystem In 2015 ?

What Will Characterize The Mobile Ecosystem In 2015 ? | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Recently (in 2014) Deloitte carried out a survey which attempted to do exactly that. The survey was administered in the USA to 2,000 respondents. The findings were very interesting, particularly with regard to the obsession that people apparently have with their devices. Indeed, the survey found that:

-  “Nearly 40% look at their phone within a mere five minutes of waking up.

-  Nearly 75% check their device within 30 minutes and almost 90% of consumers report waiting no more than an hour to look at their smartphone.”


Not only that, but the US consumers were also asked how many times a day they check their phones. Almost 10% were found to do this in excess of 100 times a day, and 25% check it more than 50 times a day. Three percent of the respondents said that they check their phone more than 200 times a day. All of this shows the very important role that mobile is playing in daily lives, and the importance of companies finding ways to leverage this....

The figures are interesting (and for some awful as they denote compulsive behaviours). But more of interest to me is the term "ecosystem" which is spreading but exactly is behind.

More Coupons Finding Mobile Shoppers | MediaPost

More Coupons Finding Mobile Shoppers  | MediaPost | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Mobile coupons are on the rise, which should come as no surprise.


This is hardly to say paper coupons are dying, though the economics would imply they should be.


A mailed coupon costs a brand or retailer 25 cents, a printed newspaper coupon costs about 5 cents and a coupon that a consumer prints at home costs a retailer pretty much nothing, based on a recent study by Juniper Research.


Only about one percent of paper coupons are redeemed, fueling the natural migration to digital.


But a coupon delivered to a mobile phone can be much more relevant than one to a PC, causing a major move to mobile coupons....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

And you thought coupons dead? No, they're just moving onto mobile.
