Despite the massive growth in usage of mobile devices, mobile marketing is still a small percentage of the total marketing budgets of most companies. eMarketer found that Americans spend 8.1% of their media time on mobile devices, but mobile only represents 0.5% of the total advertising spend.

So mobile marketing remains under the radar, but not for long:

  • Google CEO Larry Page announced this month that mobile advertising revenue “has grown 2.5x in the last 12 months to a run rate of over $2.5 billion”.
  • Banner Ads on Mobile Devices See Higher CTR Than On PCs
  • 10% of Search Ad Clicks From Mobile
  • Local Advertising Revenues In Mobile Will Grow To $2 Billion By 2014
  • 82% Of Brands Plan To Boost Mobile Budgets Over Next 12 Months
  • Gartner projects mobile advertising to be $20B worldwide by the end of 2015

We’ve assembled a diverse panel to take a closer look at mobile marketing to answer questions about what works, what doesn’t, and what people should be thinking about as they start to ramp up their mobile marketing campaigns.

As much as Sean loves to geek out and talk about Mobile…it’s all lost when someone starts talking about Rugby, Wine or the St. Louis Cardinals…and not necessarily in that order.
