    • BARRIERS TO SUCCESS but whilst the app opportunities are endless, the barriers to success are considerable.
    • The number of apps has grown exponentially since 2009, making it much harder to generate standout GROWTH OF APPS (2009 – 2011) COMPETITION
    • Incorporating the latest technological advancements in mobile may have a positive impact on brand perceptions… … but often at the expense of reach . MAXIMISING REACH REACH LIMITED APPEAL OF MANY BRANDED MOBILE APPS

So it’s important to build mobile sites before mobile apps so that you can migrate interest to other sales channels. CONVERTING BUZZ INTO LEADS FOUNDATIONS
    • MOBILE APP SUCCESS IS ELUSIVE
      • There’s no secret formula for viral success.
      • Creating an app with strong Entertainment or Utilitarian Value is no longer enough
