  3. 3. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY © 2014 Demand Metric Research Corporation. All Rights Reserved. It has been said that “All Marketing is Digital Marketing,” and with good reason! In the last decade, marketing has been transformed. Marketing has moved from an environment in which traditional marketing, brick and mortar storefronts and Digital Marketing options all competed for the time, attention and resources of the marketing department to one in which Digital Marketing reigns supreme (with an occasional nod in the direction of the storefront or traditional marketing channels, such as direct mail and print advertising). In our Digital Marketing Solution Study Series, we examine ten digital marketing components and offer independent reports for six of these. In this report, we will focus on the growing practice area of Mobile Marketing and cover the following sections:  A Definition of Mobile Marketing  The Benefits of Mobile Marketing  Mobile Marketing Deployment Lifecycle  Vendor Selection Criteria  Mobile Marketing Solutions Landscape  Mobile Marketing Maturity Model  Vendor Selection Criteria  Action Plan & Toolkit Mobile Marketing: Insights, Landscape & Vendor Analysis 3
  4. 4. The introduction of the iPhone in 2007 and the iPad in 2010 changed everything. Prior to this, the primary benefit of a cell phone was that it was wireless. Then in one (or two) sweeps, the mobile computing device landscape was born. Today, anyone who hits a non-responsive website (website not able to detect a mobile device and provide an optimal viewing experience for that device) is immediately frustrated and likely to quickly click away. For Modern Marketers, that’s a big problem that this report is designed to help you solve. The insights and analysis presented in this report are given to provide marketers with a solid understanding of the current Mobile Marketing environment. We will examine the landscape, vendors and solutions for two categories of Mobile Marketing – Mobile Application Development Frameworks and Platforms, and Mobile Content Development & Management Platforms to enable marketers to incorporate Mobile Marketing within their broader Digital Marketing Strategy.

Demand Metric defines Mobile Marketing as the strategies, processes, tools and technologies that support the development, deployment, management and measurement of marketing activities via mobile devices, primarily smartphones and tablets running iOS, Android, Kindle or Windows operating systems.
