Q&A: Enter: Social + Mobile + Local + Commerce

Posted by Rick Mathieson on August 22nd, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Move over SoLoMo - SoLoMoCo is here.
In part five of our August Mobile Marketing Roundtable, we move beyond mere Social + Local + Mobile to Social + Local + Mobile + Commerce, the ability to not just connect with consumers via the mobile channel based on where they are, but also to enable transactions based on that context.
This time out, you'll get some outstanding insights from Jonathan Becher, CMO for softare giant SAP, and Dorrian Porter, CEO of longtime GEN WOW sponsor Mozes.
At the heart of the conversation: A new report from ABI Research that by 2017, one quarter of all online sales will come through mobile. Retailers can choose to do what they can to stem this tide, or capitalize on it in powerful ways through the power of SoLoMoCo.

Q&A: Foursquare's New 'Promoted Updates' & The Race to Make Location Click (Roundtable Pt 4)

Posted by Rick Mathieson on August 20th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Is Foursquare upping its game?
Foursquare has always been at the forefront of location-based mobile marketing, and it is always at the vanguard of what's next in this nascent arena. (Listen to my Q&A with Foursquare Co-Founder Dennis Crowley on the eve of the launch of Foursquare to get a sense of his early vision for the service.)
But as innovative as it is, even Foursquare is still finding its footing in what's possible and what's compelling for both marketers and consumers when it comes to SoLoMo.
In recent weeks, Foursquare has launched Promoted Updates, an advertising product that gives merchants a way to reach people who are near their stores, based on location and interest as indicated in past check-ins and other data.
In part four of our August Mobile Marketing Roundtable, GEN WOW sponsor and Mozes CEO Dorrian Porter, SAP CMO Jonathan Becher and Ignited LA VP/CD Jordan Atlas weigh in on this new feature and some of the current challenges in making location a vital part of the SoLoMo equation.

Social + Mobile + Local & The Facebook Fallout (Roundtable Pt 3)

Posted by Rick Mathieson on August 16th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Will Facebook be able to save some face in light of its apparent free fall?
In part three of our August Mobile Marketing Roundtable, Jordan Atlas, VP/Creative Director for Ignited LA joins our conversation with Jonathan Becher, CMO of software giant SAP (middle image) and Dorrian Porter, CEO of longtime GEN WOW sponsor Mozes (bottom).
As I open up questions to the group, we get a perspective on Facebook's challenges in mobile. In recent days, key mobile marketing execs have left the company, news hit that 83 million Facebook accounts may be fake, and the stock has been hammered in the runnup to the end of its first lock-up period.
Can Facebook effectively monetize mobile. And if so, what models might it employ?
Our panelists - a Fortune 100 chief marketing officer, an award-winning ad industry creative director and the CEO of one of the most innovative mobile marketing solution providers weigh in on this very hot topic.

In part two, we hear from Dorrian Porter (pictured top), CEO of longtime GEN WOW Mobile Roundtable sponsor Mozes, on how his company and Coca-Cola have been quietly revolutionizing the way this iconic brand uses mobile to connect with consumers in amazing new ways - and why text may still be the killer app.

SAP CMO: 'Digital is Dead' (And Mobile Is, Too): Mobile Roundtable (Pt 1)

Posted by Rick Mathieson on August 13th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Digital is Dead...and mobile may soon join it.
That's the word from Jonathan Becher, chief marketing officer for enterprise software giant SAP, in a new Gen Wow Mobile Marketing Roundtable.
This time out, Becher is joined by Jordan Atlas, vice president/creative director for LA digital marketing powerhouse Ignited LA, and Dorrian Porter, founder and CEO of longtime Gen Wow sponsor Mozes, which is teaming up with Coca-Cola's Center for Mobile Excellence for a must-attend webinar on mobile marketing best practices this Thursday at 11 AM Pacific.
As many observers have no doubt noticed, Becher is one of only a handful of Fortune 100 CMOs with an active social media presence. In part one, I ask Becher about his views on a report last week from Fortune magazine on the sorry state of CEOs and social media. Along the way, we'll hear why Becher is predicting the death of social (and mobile) - and his three recommended steps for companies looking to capitalize on the mobile channel.
