Mobile, Mobile, Mobile

Smart phone sales now exceed those of PCs, making mobile the fastest growing technology platform ever. As a result, consumers are now spending more than half of their time on the Internet — checking email, watching videos, and playing games — on mobile devices, and this trend will continue to grow. While mobile advertising growth continues to mirror this change in behavior, many brands have yet to figure out their mobile strategy. Who is killing it in mobile today and why? It’s time to learn everything you always wanted to know about mobile, but were afraid to ask.

Learn How to Tweet

Social media is consuming our lives. From Facebook to Foursquare, media has never been more interactive or more personal. Meanwhile, brand marketers have discovered a whole new way of connecting with their “fans” and finding new customers. New marketing tools like Twitter are allowing brands to “broadcast” their messages to their consumers in real time. Social media may be the ultimate form of consumer empowerment, on the one hand, and brand truth, on the other. As leading brand marketers will tell you, it’s never too late to start the dialogue.
