Did we mention mobile last year? I can’t tell you how many thousands of mentions we made and continue to make. Still – only 25% of companies have a mobile strategy… ouch. Text messaging, mobile web, mobile applications and mobile email are standard for every marketing strategy. If you’re not up to speed, you’re losing a large portion of the audience that needs your product or service.
The numbers are startling – the majority of companies admit to not having a mobile strategy, and my guess is that those who think that they have a mobile strategy are misinformed. They think that simply having an app or a mobile-friendly website suffices for a strategy. Fortunately brands are starting to get wise with things like responsive design and HTML5 web apps vs. native apps, and marketers are allocating more and more budget to mobile advertising.
