Can your company afford to ignore the rapidly expanding mobile marketplace?

A recent poll from the Mobile Marketing Association (see Figure 1) confirms that disregarding the mobile market is a mistake that marketers want to avoid, and tech research firm Gartner finds that global sales of  smartphones and tablets will surpass 1 billion units in 2013. ("Smart device sales to hit 1B next year," Mobile World Live); sales estimates for 2012 exceed 800 million.

As a marketer, are you ready to ease your organization into yet another cultural shift related to online marketing?

Yes, most of you have just finished with the social media shift and many are still working through the integration of analytics with your marketing programs. But, as noted by Pete Christothoulou, co-founder and president of Marchex, "Executives are demanding that their marketing departments have a mobile strategy." (AllThingsD).

The next cultural shift must be to ask that your organization pay attention to mobile marketing—at the strategic planning level (while building your mobile digital road maps) and at the tactical level (while you pick "low hanging mobile fruit").


With mobile culture-building and mobile leadership in mind, here are seven tips to consider within your organization.

    Fantastic blog! You really hit it on the head when it comes to 'where mobile is going' in the coming year. With phones becoming such a huge part of our every day life, it's essential that companies learn to adapt their marketing efforts to fit this growing trend - especially with video (one of the fastest growing marketing strategies). Going off the section of Flash capabilities, it's essential that your marketing videos are supported across all platforms and devices.

    Thanks again for sharing!
