5 Top Trends in Mobile Marketing 2013

Posted by Rick Mathieson on December 29th, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Mobile marketing is going to make some major moves in 2013 - just not how most imagine.
Following up on our list of Top 10 Mobile Marketing Initiatives of 2012, it's time to look at some trends we'll see emerge and/or evolve in the year ahead.
Among the most prominent (not necessarily in this order):
5. Mobile Advertising Picks Up Speed (For A Time)
According to Forrester Research, mobile ad spend will boom next year - to $15 billion. Why? Because consumers now spend 10% of their media consumption time on mobile devices, yet mobile attracts less than 10% of ad dollars. The firm reasons that the old school Internet's ad growth from 8% of spend to 22% of spend means mobile must follow course (even though marketers get less and less from that increased Internet spend). But, the firm says, even a small step toward closing the gap will mean big dollars for this medium.
I'm not completely convinced. As a marketer, I find mobile advertising a bore (even some of the newer, much hyped expandable ad units). As a consumer, I find it all a snooze fest.
Mobile's far more powerful than just trying to replicate ad models from the old school Internet and... Read more

Top 10 Mobile Marketing Initiatives 2012 (Video)

Posted by Rick Mathieson on November 27th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Mobile marketing is so much more than advertising.
As readers of my books THE ON-DEMAND BRAND and BRANDING UNBOUND know, I don’t consider mobile advertising very compelling. So it
won’t come as a shock that there isn't much in the way of pure-play mobile ads in this year’s list of top 10 mobile marketing initiatives.
For me, mobile isn’t about taking an ad model from the old-school Internet – namely a "ad banner" – and plopping it onto a business-card size screen, or even the larger screen of an iPad.
It’s about creating unique and differentiating branded experiences that drive home your value proposition in amazing new ways.
To that end, here are 10 of my favorite mobile promotional initiatives for 2012.
Agree with my list? Disagree? What initiatives would you ad to the list?

Posted by Doug Schumacher on November 14th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

While many brands opt to not take sides on political issues, this week's Top Ten shows that doesn't mean they have to ignore the subject entirely. In fact, for 4 of our Top Ten brands, their most engaging post last week had some reference to the election. Hats off to Facebook and their app for helping people find their polling place.
