  • 44. “We shape our tools andthen our tools shape us.” - Marshall McLuhan
  • 45. The ZMOT is more complex than marketers think There are zero moments of truth along every step of the customer journey, from awareness to advocacy. Most of those moments happen off the desktop. “Where can I get “Show me how this product an accessory?” “Help me find a measure up to similar ones nearby store.” Incremental from other brands.” purchases Wayfinding Comparative shopping Awareness Consideration Purchase Ownership Advocacy “Can I get a deal on this purchase?” “Check out this great new “Help me figure out product I bought – I think you which product is right Deal seeking would love it too!” for me.” Social sharing Educational browsingCOPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 45
  • 46. Smartphones, feature phones, tablets… Mobile devices make the ZMOT possible any time, anywhere. RFID, surface technology and interactive signage and packaging play an increasingly important part as well. Success in the ZMOT hinges on understanding the mobile opportunity and the principles of connectedness – five essential elements that create positive, real-time interactions between brand and consumer.COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 46
  • 47. The Principles of Connectedness Brands that successfully leverage the zero moment of truth do so through focusing on content and user experiences that are: Visible: findable via all search channels, optimized for all desktop and mobile platforms. Useful: contextually relevant to the time, place and situation at hand. Usable: easy to navigate, consume and share on the consumer’s platform of choice. Desirable: worthy of saving, sharing, remashing and revisiting over and over again. Engaged: tangible and accessible, fostering an emotional, always-on connection between brand and consumer.COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 47
  • 48. Be VisibleCOPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 48
  • 49. Understand your mobile visibility quotient… Your website is the primary touch point in the zero moment of truth – and you can’t connect with a brand you can’t find. To maximize the opportunity, test your visibility across multiple devices, engines and platforms. Then, take steps to make that visibility better – especially on the devices that matter most to your customers (Google analytics will indicate which). Example: the same search renders very different results on different device and engines.COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 49
  • 50. Understand that rank matters more than ever. A single mobile search engine result page can be as much as seven screens long – if you don’t appear high up, you might as well be invisible. As few as two natural results can appear above the fold on the first SERP and scrolling is cumbersome. Excessive scrolling makes is easy for users to lose their place.COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 50
  • 51. Be willing to think outside the browser. The principal of visibility is about facilitating immediate decision making and action taking. Use mobile in the ZMOT to make the journey to the first moment of truth faster, more accessible and more successful.COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 51
  • 52. Be UsableCOPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 52
  • 53. See how your content stacks up on mobile Quality counts – whether the customer arrives at your site via mobile search, a text message or QR code, it had better be usable when they get there. Use the mobile tools at www.howtogomo.com to get mobile optimization advice specifically tailored to the purpose of your site and your campaign – e.g. lead generation, brand awareness, mCommerce, brick and mortar.COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 53
  • 54. Weigh the benefits of a mobile site... A mobile site yields the best possible user experience for the broadest number of devices. If your brand has a significant percentage of feature phones or older, non-touch screen smartphones, a separate mobile site is the best decision. Slow load times, excessive pinch and zoomPrimary customerobjectives are metat first glance VS Hard to find actionable content Location oriented and features content placed at a premium. COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 54
  • 55. …versus a responsive design approach. Brands with a more sophisticated audience that includes a high percentage of touchscreen smartphones and tablets can support a more advanced approach. Responsive design practices can support a fluid, highly usable experience across multiple devices in a single site.COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 55
  • 56. Be UsefulCOPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 56
  • 57. Understand mobile use cases Success in the ZMOT is about content in context. Most mobile users are looking for quick and easy access to decision-making and/or way finding info. Creating the right experience for the mobile context means the difference between winning the zero moment of truth and losing it. ZMOT - ready ZMOT - challenged “Does this place have gluten free “Where’s the pizza?” closest place to “How do I get grab a slice?” there?” “Do they deliver?” “What’s today’s special?” “What’s the phone #?”COPYRIGHT ICROSSING / PROPRIETARY AND CONFIDENTIAL 57
  • 58. Design according to mobile needs Successful “content in context” varies according to the capabilities, needs and behavioral patterns of mobile users. Understand who your customers are and design content and experiences that will facilitate their journey.
