It’s been a while since we’ve updated you on what’s going on with mobile marketing now.   Just a few months in high tech marketing time means a lot has happened. Below you’ll find mobile updates from some of the highest quality sources we’ve found.

Trending Up

Local and social mobile marketing is booming. Why wouldn’t it? The two channels provide some of the most interesting and useful targeting options available to a mobile marketer today.

On Local, Business Insider says:

retailers, brands, and agencies are scrambling to hone their location-based approaches. These encompass everything from “geo-aware” and “geo-fenced” ad campaigns, to hyper-local efforts keyed to Wi-Fi hotspots, and algorithmic location-based targeting of audience segments like soccer moms, bargain hunters, coffee enthusiasts, etc.

They also refer to local as the new “cookie” which is a very thought provoking way to phrase it. Local is big and getting bigger.

On Social, Business Insider says:

shoppers can price-compare and solicit advice from friends wherever they are. Overall, mobile accounts for just under 40% of time spent on social media. Facebook has passed the 50% mobile usage mark and Pinterest is at 48%. Together, they combine for over 56% of social generated e-commerce at the moment

Don’t forget that social isn’t just a channel for marketing. An infographic from the Salseforce blog says that 78% of customers look to social as the #2 point of customer service contact. Social can’t be looked at as just a marketing channel.
