Now in its 6 th year, Mobile Life provides a deep understanding of today’s global mobile device consumers and the future impact mobile will have on our digital landscape. We know that the future is digital and the future of digital is Mobile. The impact mobile phones have had on the world is monumental. More than 4 billion of the 7 billion people on earth now have a cell phone, with a quarter of those owners getting one in just the last two years. Mobile phones now allow Masai tribesmen in Kenya to bank the money they have made from selling cattle; allow Middle Eastern protesters to organize demonstrations in secret; charities to see, in real time, when HIV drugs run out in the middle of Malawi. Duncan Green, Director of researcher at the charity Oxfam has called mobile phones “the technological Coca Cola”. They are ubiquitous. But the impact mobile phones are having on other industries is quite devastating. One influential blogger stated “ mobile phones are killing landlines, watches; it's changing the camera business; it's changing the TV industry, the music industry, destroying the pay-phone industry .” In 2014 Morgan Stanley predicts that internet access via mobile devices will exceed PC access. Mobile is the future. And Mobile Life: Global Technology Insights helps understand it.
By helping them spend their marketing budgets more effectively: As companies shift more of their marketing budgets to mobile rather than TV or radio, they want to know what apps and services people use, how much time they spend on these services, how much they pay for services etc. this will help them target their communications more effectively. By making them understand key purchase and usage drivers: ie they key reasons why people buy the phones they do. Is it because of the brand, the ability to easily access the internet, because it has a good camera, because they are loyal to that brand. Is it because of advertising, in store promotions etc. By predicting mobile usage adoption paths across different: ie mobile finance is already big in Africa but not very much used in the Western Markets. This could prove a bit opportunity for banks in Germany to be the first to develop mobile banking. By making them understand cross-platform usage: ie how people are using their mobiles, pc and tablets and how does their behaviour differ across the 3. By helping them develop their offer : Identify how people are currently using their phone and how they will use phones in the future, what apps they will use, what services they will expect By helping them define their brand strategy: Understand brand strengths, weaknesses and if there are opportunities to partner with other companies
