The Mobile Consumer

So we continue with Module 2 and look at mobile and mobile strategy!

What does your mobile make you feel?

We began this module by looking at how smartphones now completely dominate the world! There is now more mobile devices on the earth than people!

It is how we use these devices and what these smart phones make us feel that is important to a digital marketeer.

Your mobile is your personal companion that you take everywhere!

 How Do We Use Our Mobiles?

These are the three main actions that we do on our mobile phones.


Urgent Now: E.g.  Emails, Texts, Alerts

Repetitive Now: E.g. Check Football Scores

Bored Now: E.g. Facebook, Play Games

It is extremely important to understand the context of when a device is used. We can then look at which marketing techniques would work best on each device. Importantly on mobile 95% of people have researched a product on their phone. We must increasingly utilise the mobile as a point of purchase.

context is king
