A Mobile POST Case Study

Why Read This Report
E*TRADE's Mobile Pro application for the BlackBerry is the excellent result of a thoughtful and well-executed mobile strategy. The strong representation of SuperConnecteds and Connectors within the Mobile Technograhics Profile of its customer base opened up possibilities for feature-rich, Web-based offerings. E*TRADE chose objectives that were consistent with its overall business strategy of growing individual customer revenues and acquiring new customers. Finally, it clearly articulated a strategy before choosing the appropriate technologies rather than the reverse — having its technology choices dictate its strategy. The results of its mobile presence have been encouraging so far, with surveyed users reporting high levels of satisfaction with the mobile experience.
