Digital Marketing: The Future Of Mobile Is Context
Mobile Transforms How Interactive Marketers Engage With Customers
August 1, 2011
Why Read This Report
Consumers will adopt and use convenient services and products. On mobile phones, this means services that offer immediacy and simplicity through a highly contextual experience. Context — the sum total of what is known about an individual along with what he or she is currently experiencing — is a moving target that will pull consumer expectations of convenience with it. For interactive marketing professionals, context translates into more targeted media buying opportunities and more relevant brand engagement. For many marketers, this is geo-targeting, today. Context is more than location. It includes a consumer's situation, attitudes, and preferences. In the short term, interactive marketing professionals must develop the ability to deliver personalized offers based on location and programs that enhance offline experiences. Longer term, interactive marketing professionals must evaluate what new contextual information will be most effective.
