  • Most times when we think of mobile we think or have been taught to think “mobile as it relates to mobile websites and mobile apps” But I want to focus on what I believe is the most important aspect of mobile and that’s COMMUNICATION!
  • Major forms of Mobile communication include text, email and of course call.
  • I wont bore you with too many stats and I know many of us have tried test message marketing campaigns that failed miserably – we can NOT classify text communication with text marketing campaigns as they are very different.When it comes to one to one communication, there’s currently nothing better than the speed and effectiveness of chat.

  • Email isnt dead!! It has and will continue to adapt.
  • Instead we are still sending out crap like this – typically from a CRM WYSIWYG that isn't equipped to handle this. Knowing that 50% of emails are being read on a mobile phone and this is what it looks like – we even send it?
