Webinar on Oct. 25: Mall of America: 5 Last-Minute Tips for Effective 2012 Holiday Mobile Marketing
While most brands and retailers already have their holiday mobile strategy and tactics in place, consumer response to the fluid economic situation may require tweaks and adjustments for effective branding and customer acquisition and retention.
Building on last year?s momentum, expectations are that one out of two consumers nationwide may shop or buy with a mobile device this year, rendering the cost of not getting holiday mobile marketing right pretty high. This hour-long webinar on Thursday, Oct. 25 at 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET will offer expert advice from Mall of America, Ignited and sponsor Fiksu on last-minute tweaks to mobile efforts that can really drive a marketer?s bottom-line.
?This is a no-excuses mobile holiday season for brands and retailers,? said Mickey Alam Khan, editor in chief of Mobile Marketer and Mobile Commerce Daily, New York. ?Those brands that haven?t charted out a strategy to include mobile in all holiday mobile pushes will find themselves out of the conversation.
?Mobile phones and tablets are now sophisticated enough to let media brands showcase advertising and marketing opportunities for marketers,? he said. ?Also, expect marketers who get it to pull out every trick in the mobile book to drive traffic to destinations on mobile, online and, crucially, in-store. With this holiday season, mobile marketing will have come into its own.
?This webinar is designed to help correct the course even as finishing touches are being put on holiday mobile marketing plans.?
This free webinar on Oct. 25 is part of a continuing series that Mobile Marketer produces.
