  3. 3. 3. “Mobile Marketing” Do you need it; seriously? • Why?! • To get users? • What kind? • Actives! • Very active actives • How is mobile marketing going to help you?! • (In case you wonder; getting e.g. paid downloads is a different kind of business, see context)

  9. 9. 9. Chaos • Some stuff is just unpredictable • Generate and try tons of ideas • Observe with great curiosity
  10. 10. Focus on understanding
