What’s your goal? Not every goal type is conducive to mobile advertising. For example: Lead-gen should be simple click-to-call not forms. App downloads need to be device specific. In-store visit needs to consider geo-location. Make sure you have metrics for all conversations.Mobile Ready Pages. Need to completely rethink landing pages and website navigation for mobile. Most elements don’t overlap.Mobile analytics. Google and other have decent mobile analytics for web pages and apps. There are some emerging mobile analytics providers that give deeper insight than Google Analytics (see Bango.com)
Example of brands doing mobile right. Zynga, Amazon, Nike, Victoria’s Secret.Mobile ready websites, simplified clicks, rich media, mobile specific PPC campaigns
