  3. Content strategies for mobile differs from web. The key words here not unique and quality. They are timing & relevance.
  4. Mobile is used on-the-go People travel: less and less prepared, with shorter notice, 
 more frequently. Planning, booking & sharing for all these people is done mostly on mobile. This makes context king.
  5. Correlation between last minute and mobile: - 65% of late (24h before stay) hotel bookings are already via mobile - for flights it’s 15%. Mobile booking is growing fast - Las Vegas already gets 30% of all bookings from mobile Hotel tonight (last minute booking app) has grown to 100 employees, $45m investment and 4.5m downloads in two years Example of trend: last minute hotel booking
  6. Context matter, because when we are 
 lost, hungry, tired, 
 angry & cold 
 we don’t care about anything else And because it’s the most likely time people are interested in your message
  7. I’m right here and I am hungry
  8. I’m right here and I am tired
  9. How you can serve contextual content Google: People search on Location + “desired activity” - One rule to beat them all: everything must be mobile optimized. - Include SEO and addresses - Tip: Google+
  10. Social geo networks 
 People search directly in Yelp, Foursquare, Everplaces etc. to see what’s near & good quality - search default is nearby - filtering possible - social relevance filters
  11. Geo triggers Apps with geo triggers - Set rules for what is shown to the consumer, based on when get are near particular spots
  12. maps Maps become a direct source for contextual content and info 
 Google & Apple increasing important for info like what’s nearby, opening hours, images, links & prices Make your own maps, incl. apps with offline maps, own content
  13. Other places where people are likely to look for contextual information - On arrival locations, like hotels and airport - Other’s apps: Event apps, partner apps (ferries, campsites, hotels), and other TOs. - Rating sites, such as Tripadvisor (web and app)
  14. The information age consumer demands relevance Advertising doesn’t work like it did. People are skilled at ignoring marketing, and rarely change their mind. This gives us two options: 1) create truly remarkable products that stand out, or 2) talk to people about something they’re already passionate about niche topic material, apps and campaigns have bigger impact on existing interest groups, than bland generic ones will on the big mass.
  15. iPhone users more valuable ‣ More time. iPhone user spends 71 min a day on his phone, but a HTC user only 47 in ‣ More used apps iPhone has 27 apps installed (11 are used weekly), HTC users has 14 apps (7 used weekly) ‣ More money on apps. iPhone user spends 4 time more money on apps than other smartphones (13 kr a month vs kr. 3) ‣ More active. iPhone user uses apps 5,6 time a day and websites 2,7 times a day.

  18. Relevance and context is largely about in-destination service 52% use apps in-destination ‣ 94% research things to do ‣ 75% search for restaurants ‣ 80% for maps and directions Big opportunity to build loyalty, and secondary awareness through sharing if you focus more digital attention to servicing people already at your destination. 
 Go to the airport and play tourist. What are you missing? Do the same in town.
  19. Mobile users are modern. They require authenticity 
 in content UGC is trusted more than official content. Try to integrate other’s content, rather than creating everything from scratch. The exceptions. When do you have to make own apps? Info that only you would share Core local information, not out there Brand control
  20. UCG example: Feed in app App pulls in automatic feed from an Instagram hashtag. (New: Now possible to build admin function)
