Mobile Marketing Strategies

When it comes to mobile marketing, the future is now. The overwhelming response that the Red Cross had with its text-messaging campaign for Haiti has put a major spotlight on the sector. More and more companies are making their debuts on mobile devices, and that trend will only grow as smartphone sales rise and wireless technology gets faster and cheaper.

Consider these stats:

    * As of Q3 2009 there have been 41 million smartphones sold globally (Mediapost)

    * There are four times the number of cellphones in the world versus PCs (4Bn vs. 1Bn) and 20% of all U.S. households are now “mobile-only” (

    * More than half (52%) of mobile subscribers use text messaging regularly

    * Texting gets seven times the response rate than email does (7% vs 1%) (

    * The majority of individuals have their mobile phone on them for up to 18 hours per day.

    * Number of mobile apps downloaded in 2009: 2.5 million
      Expected number of mobile apps that will be downloaded in 2013: 21.6 million (Source: Gartner [December 2009])
