The growth of mobile has been a game changer for the world of email marketing.

Considering that smartphone usage tripled in 2011, it’s no surprise that email consumption via mobile devices has also seen a steep upturn.

Furthermore, we have seen some of our clients experience open rates of around 70% on mobile, proving just how vital it is when running campaigns.

Will Passbook be Apple's key to cracking mobile commerce?

Apple's iPhone may be the smartphone, and the latest iteration of it, the iPhone 5, which was unveiled Wednesday, looks set to sell like hotcakes, even if some are disappointed that Apple hasn't done more.

But while Apple may not have made any bold strides this week with the iPhone 5 itself, one new application in iOS 6, Passbook, could represent an important step for Apple as it looks to taking its dominance in the smartphone arena and extending it to other mobile opportunities, such as commerce and advertising.

"Mobile sites vs apps – which one do I need for my business?" blog post image

Mobile sites vs apps: which one do I need for my business?

By 2014, mobile internet is set to overtake fixed internet access. This was the big headline from Microsoft Tag's Mobile Marketing infographic last year.  

No surprise perhaps, seeing that out of the world’s 4bn mobile phones in use, 1.08bn are smartphones, and apps have become a global phenomenon. Apple’s App Store alone has now reached 25bn downloads, tracking at 1bn downloads a month, a figure nine times greater than the number of burgers sold by McDonald’s!

Consumer’s expectations are changing and as more and more businesses go mobile, you need to ensure you’re not losing customers by not moving with them.

If 10% of your total audience are using a mobile device to reach your website, it might be time to start thinking about making an investment in mobile.

Expecting more from mobile in 2012

Why should we expect more from our usual social media mobile platforms? Well, why not?

Without feedback, preferences, and usage patterns, companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare wouldn’t be connecting us on a daily basis.

In 2012 however, we should expect a contextual experience from these sites – desktop and mobile alike.

45% of consumers would opt-in to mobile marketing [infographic]

Nearly half (45%) of UK consumers are willing to accept branded communications via mobile if they are delivered according to their opt-in terms.

The new survey, conducted by Velti, found that consumers will only sign up to communications from three companies on average, making it difficult for brands to take advantage of this opportunity on a wide scale.

When respondents were asked what type of companies they would opt-in to receive information from, mobile network operators came out on top (42.4%), followed by retailers (25.6%), financial services firms (16.9%) and travel companies (16.5%).

The survey also shows the importance of mobile email. While 36.9% of consumers prefer to receive messaging on a mobile (SMS – 24.3%, MMS – 5.1% and mobile optimised email – 7.5%), 78.3% said they prefer email marketing.

Always adapting, Gilt prepares for big mobile push

A steady spring rain served as little deterrence for the hardy attendants of the New York American Marketing Association’s Monday night event featuring Gilt Groupe cofounder Alexis Maybank.

Currently serving as chief strategy officer, Maybank discussed Gilt's four year maturation into the big-data-weilding, five-million-member established player that it is today. 

Gilt has thrived, Maybank emphasized, by prioritizing flexibility. When the company hosted it's first invitation-only sale for Zac Posen in 2007, only ten days had passed since the initial customer contact, and the returns section of the website had yet to be built. During the rapid growth that followed, more people were hired in some quarters than had been working at the company.

The first big change of direction occured when the company realized that their partnering brands weren't just looking at them for inventory liquidation, but instead saw Gilt as a marketing channel. The latest pivot, occuring now, is towards mobile.
