Advertising success
Advertising on mobile is a great way for companies to connect with consumers ? both existing and new ones.

Taco Bell advertising on the Pandora platform works for the company given the vast amount of users who visit the app daily.

Additionally, offering an incentive such as an offer to mobile users is a great way to drive traffic in-store.

"With people on the go this summer, mobile is an important part of our integrated, 360 communication approach that also includes television, radio, online and social media," Ms. Corsinita said.
