10          BIG BRAND STRATEGIES

  LEVERAGING MOBILE TO BUILD CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIPS,
  DRIVE REVENUE AND GROW MARKET SHARE


      The time for big brands to get strategic about marketing their apps is now.
      Mobile apps are no longer standalone entities for big brands. What we’re now see-
      ing is brands integrating mobile apps into their business models and their overall
      marketing strategies -- to build closer customer relationships and drive business.

      It’s no longer enough for brands to just have an app (or a suite of apps) and
      promote it through traditional channels. Now that brands recognize the impact
      mobile apps are having on business, their focus is shifting to employ a strategic

The Time Is Now
EXPLOSIVE MOBILE GROWTH DESERVES DEDICATED MARKETING

      Mobile is quickly becoming the go-to way a growing segment of consumers
      interact with brands, and apps are rapidly becoming the dominant avenue for this
      interaction. The stats and predictions are overwhelming:

FIKSU CLIENT EXAMPLE:
      Finance Company Goes Big for Apps
       The client:
       • Financial services company
       • $100M+ revenue
       • Public company (NYSE)
       • ~15 million active customers
       • Actively marketing their mobile app for 2+ years
       • Mid-six-figure monthly spend


       The challenge:
       • Their online user base is shifting to mobile
       • Smaller competitors were threatening to disrupt their business


       How Fiksu helped:
       •  onsistently kept client in the top ranks of the
         C
         App Store - ahead of competition
       • Acquired millions of users
       • Kept cost per acquisition below targets



4 |       | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
There are three key lessons to be learned from this client:
      	

      	      1.  ffort and execution matter
                E
                 The company runs a steady, continuous campaign, targeting the ideal user
                 across an array of different traffic sources including leading ad networks,
                 social channels, and real-time bidding exchanges (RTB). They also develop
                 high quality creative assets, track their ROI through to the last dollar, and
                 occasionally use a “burst” strategy, putting out an extra blitz of ads to
                 maximize results when needed.

      	      2.  eep testing and optimizing
                K
                 No matter how good campaign results are, it’s essential to test new ideas
                 and traffic sources. This client uses Fiksu’s optimization technology and
                 performance data to make ongoing optimization decisions, keeping cost-per-
                 acquisition low while finding ideal customers. They also dedicated 10% of their
                 monthly budget to testing new ideas and channels, many of which eventually
                 make their way into the core marketing stream.

      	      3.  ind your ideal rank
                F
                 As we’ll discuss, every app has an optimal “sweet spot” in the app stores, and
                 it’s not necessarily “as high as you can afford to stay.” This client has figured
                 out what rank gives them the best ROI and how it changes over time. To get the
                 most out of your app marketing dollars, you need to determine this optimal rank
                 and what you need to spend to stay there.

      Some of these lessons may be unfamiliar to marketers new to mobile. But that’s just
      the start – let’s take a look at how mobile app marketing differs from online and
      traditional marketing.

App Marketing Requires
a Different Approach
      App marketing is an entirely different world than what many experienced
      marketers are used to in both digital and traditional channels, incorporating
      different dynamics that require different marketing approaches. Here are some
      of the differences app marketers are facing.

      Unfamiliar channels
      Of course, brands with large customer bases can drive app installs through
      traditional customer touch points and promotion. But to quickly reach the massive
      volumes of app users required for success in this space, marketers depend on
      mobile advertising networks, such as Google’s AdMob, Apple’s iAd, and emerging
      sources such as real-time RTB exchanges.

Targeting challenges
      Due to both technology limitations and privacy concerns, mobile ad targeting isn’t
      as sophisticated as what marketers are used to in the traditional online marketing
      world. Marketers used to precise demographic targeting will have to adapt to new
      technologies and approaches for reaching those users that can help you achieve
      the best performance and ROI.

      Downloads often don’t lead to users
      Even when you succeed in getting your app downloaded, it doesn’t mean the
      customer will actually use it. Only a fraction of downloads convert into
      productive users.

      According to a recent industry study, more than a quarter of downloaded apps
      are used only once, and then abandoned.11 If your app marketing generates too
      many downloads by non-engaged users, your results will take a significant hit.
      Fortunately, there are integrated tracking and optimization technologies that help
      marketers identify the traffic sources that drive more than just downloads –
      but quality, loyal users.

      Marketing goals are different
      App marketing also requires balancing an entirely new set of marketing goals –
      from achieving a certain rank within app stores, to acquiring users that actually
      use your app, to a target cost-per-install. These are new types of goals for many
      marketers, and require new measurement approaches.

      to understand and address new dynamics associated with the app stores such as
      achieving optimal rank, understanding the relationship between ad spend and
      organic users, and the factors that drive rank in each store.

      Organic users
      Your app will be downloaded by two types of users:
      1) ad-driven users -- downloads by users that are driven from your paid ads
      2)  rganic users -- downloads by users that find your app naturally when
         o
         browsing the stores.
      Organic users are considered to be the highest quality users and there are
      proven approaches that can help you capture more of them and reduce your
      overall cost-per-acquisition.

      Ad tracking and attribution
      A key consideration for app marketers is ad tracking and attribution, which
      is required to reveal what’s working and where to focus marketing spend.

1. Bring App Stakeholders Together
   
   As One Team
       Who owns your app marketing strategy?
       Is it a centralized marketing department? A marketing team within a business
       division? Or maybe the e-commerce business? Does your company have multiple
       apps, marketed by different groups?

       It’s not uncommon in large organizations for some controversy to exist regarding
       who should “own” the app marketing strategy, and often several players can make
       a valid argument.

       Try to steer clear of territorialism and unite all of the app stakeholders to work
       as one team to align overall goals and avoid power struggles. Pulling a team
       together from different departments and divisions can often be difficult, but it will
       go a long way towards making your app marketing strategies more successful.

       Ideally your organization will benefit from regular, ongoing communications
       among all the key players, from app development and business stakeholders
       to you as the app marketer and even to outside partners such as your agency.
       By bringing everyone together as a team, you have an opportunity to get everyone
       on the same page and build a successful app business.

2. Put Dedicated Marketing
   
   Resources Behind Your App
       Apps are revenue-generating vehicles and deserve dedicated marketing
       resources. Capturing and maintaining app market share requires marketing
       resources, just like any other product. It’s no longer enough to simply market
       your apps at your traditional customer touch points. To build market share,
       brands must go out and get app users through proactive marketing – and this
       takes resources.

       According to the Mobile Marketing Association, marketers currently allocate
       less than one percent of their marketing budget to mobile advertising. However,
       based on the MMA’s detailed ROI analysis of mobile, the optimal percentage of
       a marketing budget to spend on mobile is seven percent, on average, and up to
       nine percent for brands with higher app involvement.13

       Many big brands have started to put the necessary budget and staff behind the
       marketing of their apps, and those are the two key components. It takes people

       marketing programs should be measured against            and/or in-category

       specific, measurable goals. App marketing              • Downloads – Generate a certain number of app downloads on
                                                                
       presents an entirely new range of marketing goals,       a daily/weekly/monthly basis

       with different corresponding strategies and tactics.   • Cost-per-download – Stay below a threshold cost to
                                                                
                                                                generate downloads

       You’ll most likely wind up with several goals,         • Loyal user acquisition – Drive downloads from users that make

4. Market Your App On
   
   Mobile Media
       Some brands with large customer bases are confident that they can drive a lot of
       users simply by promoting apps through their existing customer touch points, such
       as stores, web sites, or traditional mass media channels. However, many marketers
       have found that promoting their apps through these channels is no longer enough.

       Brands are now committing an ongoing portion of their overall marketing spend to
       promoting their apps where mobile users are: mobile advertising networks and
       real-time bidding exchanges. Advertising on these dedicated mobile media
       channels is the fastest way to build and sustain a large user base.

       It’s true that most users find apps in the app stores – but discoverability of any one
       app among thousands of competitors isn’t something you can count, no matter how
       well-known your brand is.

       The impact of mobile ad buys cannot be underestimated. Apps with high app store
       rankings and market share are almost always backed by continuous marketing in
       the form of paid media buys through mobile advertising networks and real-time
       bidding exchanges. These dedicated mobile channels enable brands to achieve
       an initial rank boost then maintain that rank over time to drive discoverability
       and installs.



15 |         | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
In addition to advertising on mobile channels, marketers have learned that
       working with several ad networks, rather than just one or two, increases their
       success by up to a factor of ten. This multi-network approach helps marketers
       reach their largest potential audience, guard against audience saturation,
       and maximize ROI by identifying opportunities for lower acquisition costs.

       There are different types of dedicated mobile marketing vehicles from which
       to choose:

       Ad Networks: Aggregate traffic from publishers like mobile web sites and apps
       that display ads.

       Incentive Networks: Provides a reward to a user that downloads and engages
       with an app. Otherwise known as an ‘install’. Apps with good initial engagement
       mechanics can obtain new users at a low cost. Examples of incentive networks
       include FreeMyApps and SponsorPay.                                                “   We launched an iPhone

The Emergence of Real-Time
       Bidding Exchanges
       One of the more rapidly growing developing ways app marketers are accessing mobile media is through real time
       bidding (RTB) exchanges.

       Real-time bidding gives marketers an effective, cost-efficient way to target precise audience segments --
       one impression at a time. RTB achieves this through online auctions that work in the same manner as bidding
       on AdWords.

       RTB systems auction media inventory on a per-impression basis: every time an ad slot becomes available due to a
       user opening an app or mobile web page, an RTB exchange makes that impression available for bidding. Advertisers
       are given highly granular targeting data to programmatically evaluate the impression and generate a bid for the
       impressions. The exchange delivers the ad to the auction winner within milliseconds. This provides advertisers with
       the ability to reach high-value prospects at the cost they’re willing to pay, rather than purchasing bulk impressions.

       Real-time bidding offers one of the most cost-effective ways to identify, target, bid on, and buy impressions based
       on specific acquisition goals and at a target cost. Buying media impressions through RTB exchanges helps
       app marketers:
       	     • Access highly targetable traffic for better performance
       	     • Drive high-value users
       	     • Achieve substantial cost efficiencies
       	     • Realize higher marketing ROI

5. Target Optimal Store Rank
   
       Mobile media advertising will drive users to download your app. But it’s just as
       important to reach users who are browsing the app store for new apps – and
       the way to do that is to get your app into the top of the store rankings. If you’re
       not near the top, you’re not likely to be seen, never mind downloaded.

       Rank is all about acquiring organic users

       Organic users are those who install your app through natural discovery while
       browsing the app store, as opposed to those that are driven to the app by a paid
       ad. Organic users often become higher-value users – but in the rank-driven
       environment of the app stores, paid users have an important role to play beyond
       their individual value.

       As we’ve pointed out, high rankings are key to being discovered by organic
       app searchers – and one critical factor in ranking is total download volume:            “   The mobile app is probably

Because rank is so critical to obtaining organic users, one method of achieving
       higher rank quickly is to conduct a burst campaign with an incent network.
       A burst campaign concentrates advertising spend over a short period of time
       to quickly drive a high volume of downloads. When done correctly, a burst
       campaign results in a prominent ranking in the App Store, causing a spike in
       organic installs. Once the campaign is generating a substantial amount of
       organic downloads, you can dial back the spend to just the level necessary to
       sustain your download numbers.

       Optimal rank
       To capture organic users most efficiently, it’s important to think in terms of
       optimal rank, rather than simply highest rank. This is because there is a point
       of diminishing returns associated with rank. For example, an app may get more
       organic users at rank 5 than at rank 10 – but the cost of maintaining rank 5
       might more than offset that advantage.

       Marketing platforms such as Fiksu’s use algorithms to determine an app’s               “   We now have planograms
                                                                                                  for every store in our app, so

6. Target Loyal Users
       As you run your advertising across mobile ad networks, you will also want to
       think in terms of “loyal user” acquisition – not just downloads.

       A loyal user is a user who takes actions that lead back to ROI.
       For example, a loyal user may be one who:
       	      • Uses the app repeatedly
       	      • Clicks through to your online store
       	      • Downloads a coupon
       	      • Makes an in-app purchase
       	      • Places an order
       	      • Registers for a service or newsletter

       Whatever the conversion metric is, it is loyal users on whom you build your
       app business.
                                                                                        “   Starwood has seen a 300

       The optimization engine is integrated with ad

       5. Provides Store Optimization
       The optimization engine monitors the relationship
       between ad spend, app rank, and downloads, and
       optimizes to achieve the rank that delivers the most
       organic users at the lowest cost.

8. Choose a Proven Mobile
   
   Marketing Technology Partner
       As you get strategic about your mobile app marketing, you’ll want to partner
       with one or more vendors that provide technology solutions for app marketing.
       Traditional advertising agencies may have considerable expertise in user
       acquisition and brand marketing, but as we’ve described, mobile marketing
       demands very specific expertise and technology.

       Coca-Cola executive Tom Daly recently emphasized this idea, saying that one
       of his main goals for 2012 was finding and connecting with the best partners
       for mobile marketing. He mentioned that mobile marketing is a different skill
       set than digital marketing, and that his focus then and now was on finding
       partners who know how to really collaborate so he could “invest in the best”
       and execute on his vision for mobile.19

To get the most out of your app marketing dollars, you need to determine this optimal rank and what you need to spend to stay there. Some of these lessons may be unfamiliar to marketers new to mobile. But that’s just the start – let’s take a look at how mobile app marketing differs from online and traditional marketing. 5 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  • 6. App Marketing Requires a Different Approach App marketing is an entirely different world than what many experienced marketers are used to in both digital and traditional channels, incorporating different dynamics that require different marketing approaches. Here are some of the differences app marketers are facing. Unfamiliar channels Of course, brands with large customer bases can drive app installs through traditional customer touch points and promotion. But to quickly reach the massive volumes of app users required for success in this space, marketers depend on mobile advertising networks, such as Google’s AdMob, Apple’s iAd, and emerging sources such as real-time RTB exchanges. “ In the ten days since the iPad’s debut, its TV-show watching app has been Many brands are now promoting their apps through these dedicated app downloaded 205,000 times, marketing channels because they are by far the most effective way to capture giving the Walt Disney Co. high volumes of new users quickly. But how do you decide which networks to (DIS) unit a presence on nearly half the 450,000 work with? What method do they use for ad tracking?

  • 7. Targeting challenges Due to both technology limitations and privacy concerns, mobile ad targeting isn’t as sophisticated as what marketers are used to in the traditional online marketing world. Marketers used to precise demographic targeting will have to adapt to new technologies and approaches for reaching those users that can help you achieve the best performance and ROI. Downloads often don’t lead to users Even when you succeed in getting your app downloaded, it doesn’t mean the customer will actually use it. Only a fraction of downloads convert into productive users. According to a recent industry study, more than a quarter of downloaded apps are used only once, and then abandoned.11 If your app marketing generates too many downloads by non-engaged users, your results will take a significant hit. Fortunately, there are integrated tracking and optimization technologies that help marketers identify the traffic sources that drive more than just downloads – but quality, loyal users. Marketing goals are different App marketing also requires balancing an entirely new set of marketing goals – from achieving a certain rank within app stores, to acquiring users that actually use your app, to a target cost-per-install. These are new types of goals for many marketers, and require new measurement approaches. 7 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks

As an app marketer you need ” within minutes. to understand and address new dynamics associated with the app stores such as achieving optimal rank, understanding the relationship between ad spend and organic users, and the factors that drive rank in each store. Organic users Your app will be downloaded by two types of users: 1) ad-driven users -- downloads by users that are driven from your paid ads 2) rganic users -- downloads by users that find your app naturally when o browsing the stores. Organic users are considered to be the highest quality users and there are proven approaches that can help you capture more of them and reduce your overall cost-per-acquisition. Ad tracking and attribution A key consideration for app marketers is ad tracking and attribution, which is required to reveal what’s working and where to focus marketing spend. Mobile ad tracking presents unique challenges for app marketers because there “ EBay previously forecasted that it would hit $10 billion is no industry standard on the iOS platform, and many of the tracking options in revenue on mobile this year.

  • 10. 1. Bring App Stakeholders Together As One Team Who owns your app marketing strategy? Is it a centralized marketing department? A marketing team within a business division? Or maybe the e-commerce business? Does your company have multiple apps, marketed by different groups? It’s not uncommon in large organizations for some controversy to exist regarding who should “own” the app marketing strategy, and often several players can make a valid argument. Try to steer clear of territorialism and unite all of the app stakeholders to work as one team to align overall goals and avoid power struggles. Pulling a team together from different departments and divisions can often be difficult, but it will go a long way towards making your app marketing strategies more successful. Ideally your organization will benefit from regular, ongoing communications among all the key players, from app development and business stakeholders to you as the app marketer and even to outside partners such as your agency. By bringing everyone together as a team, you have an opportunity to get everyone on the same page and build a successful app business. 10 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks

This helped them hit multiple app marketing goals and minimize confusion and surprises down the line. 11 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  • 12. 2. Put Dedicated Marketing Resources Behind Your App Apps are revenue-generating vehicles and deserve dedicated marketing resources. Capturing and maintaining app market share requires marketing resources, just like any other product. It’s no longer enough to simply market your apps at your traditional customer touch points. To build market share, brands must go out and get app users through proactive marketing – and this takes resources. According to the Mobile Marketing Association, marketers currently allocate less than one percent of their marketing budget to mobile advertising. However, based on the MMA’s detailed ROI analysis of mobile, the optimal percentage of a marketing budget to spend on mobile is seven percent, on average, and up to nine percent for brands with higher app involvement.13 Many big brands have started to put the necessary budget and staff behind the marketing of their apps, and those are the two key components. It takes people “ The Creative Ideas app allows users to find inspiration and home power to manage the strategy and execution across the many mobile app market- improvement content ing vehicles, and as the MMA describes, the scope of the mobile app opportunity where and when they also deserves a significant app marketing budget, separate from other channels. want to interact with it.

  • 15. 4. Market Your App On Mobile Media Some brands with large customer bases are confident that they can drive a lot of users simply by promoting apps through their existing customer touch points, such as stores, web sites, or traditional mass media channels. However, many marketers have found that promoting their apps through these channels is no longer enough. Brands are now committing an ongoing portion of their overall marketing spend to promoting their apps where mobile users are: mobile advertising networks and real-time bidding exchanges. Advertising on these dedicated mobile media channels is the fastest way to build and sustain a large user base. It’s true that most users find apps in the app stores – but discoverability of any one app among thousands of competitors isn’t something you can count, no matter how well-known your brand is. The impact of mobile ad buys cannot be underestimated. Apps with high app store rankings and market share are almost always backed by continuous marketing in the form of paid media buys through mobile advertising networks and real-time bidding exchanges. These dedicated mobile channels enable brands to achieve an initial rank boost then maintain that rank over time to drive discoverability and installs. 15 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  • 16. In addition to advertising on mobile channels, marketers have learned that working with several ad networks, rather than just one or two, increases their success by up to a factor of ten. This multi-network approach helps marketers reach their largest potential audience, guard against audience saturation, and maximize ROI by identifying opportunities for lower acquisition costs. There are different types of dedicated mobile marketing vehicles from which to choose: Ad Networks: Aggregate traffic from publishers like mobile web sites and apps that display ads. Incentive Networks: Provides a reward to a user that downloads and engages with an app. Otherwise known as an ‘install’. Apps with good initial engagement mechanics can obtain new users at a low cost. Examples of incentive networks include FreeMyApps and SponsorPay. “ We launched an iPhone app in the United States about a year and a half ago. Premium Traffic: Web and app publishers with their own ad serving capabilities It is now processing around and sell inventory direct to very large buyers or aggregators. Examples include 15% of all the WesternUnion. Pandora, The Weather Channel, and Twitter. com transactions that go out from the US.

  • 17. The Emergence of Real-Time Bidding Exchanges One of the more rapidly growing developing ways app marketers are accessing mobile media is through real time bidding (RTB) exchanges. Real-time bidding gives marketers an effective, cost-efficient way to target precise audience segments -- one impression at a time. RTB achieves this through online auctions that work in the same manner as bidding on AdWords. RTB systems auction media inventory on a per-impression basis: every time an ad slot becomes available due to a user opening an app or mobile web page, an RTB exchange makes that impression available for bidding. Advertisers are given highly granular targeting data to programmatically evaluate the impression and generate a bid for the impressions. The exchange delivers the ad to the auction winner within milliseconds. This provides advertisers with the ability to reach high-value prospects at the cost they’re willing to pay, rather than purchasing bulk impressions. Real-time bidding offers one of the most cost-effective ways to identify, target, bid on, and buy impressions based on specific acquisition goals and at a target cost. Buying media impressions through RTB exchanges helps app marketers: • Access highly targetable traffic for better performance • Drive high-value users • Achieve substantial cost efficiencies • Realize higher marketing ROI 17 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks

  • 19. 5. Target Optimal Store Rank Mobile media advertising will drive users to download your app. But it’s just as important to reach users who are browsing the app store for new apps – and the way to do that is to get your app into the top of the store rankings. If you’re not near the top, you’re not likely to be seen, never mind downloaded. Rank is all about acquiring organic users Organic users are those who install your app through natural discovery while browsing the app store, as opposed to those that are driven to the app by a paid ad. Organic users often become higher-value users – but in the rank-driven environment of the app stores, paid users have an important role to play beyond their individual value. As we’ve pointed out, high rankings are key to being discovered by organic app searchers – and one critical factor in ranking is total download volume: “ The mobile app is probably our first aggressive initiative the more downloads you get, the higher you rank. And that’s where paid users aimed at strengthening come in. loyalty among current and potential new guests. Paid mobile advertising continually drives more downloads, which raises your We wanted to deliver an extension of our brand app’s rank and visibility within the stores, so it can then be discovered by organ- experience and give people ic users. This is called “organic lift” and it should play a central role in your app a reason to engage with marketing strategy. ” the Denny’s brand. — John Dillon, Vice President of Brand Marketing Product Development, Denny’s 16 19 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
  • 20. Because rank is so critical to obtaining organic users, one method of achieving higher rank quickly is to conduct a burst campaign with an incent network. A burst campaign concentrates advertising spend over a short period of time to quickly drive a high volume of downloads. When done correctly, a burst campaign results in a prominent ranking in the App Store, causing a spike in organic installs. Once the campaign is generating a substantial amount of organic downloads, you can dial back the spend to just the level necessary to sustain your download numbers. Optimal rank To capture organic users most efficiently, it’s important to think in terms of optimal rank, rather than simply highest rank. This is because there is a point of diminishing returns associated with rank. For example, an app may get more organic users at rank 5 than at rank 10 – but the cost of maintaining rank 5 might more than offset that advantage. Marketing platforms such as Fiksu’s use algorithms to determine an app’s “ We now have planograms for every store in our app, so optimal rank by monitoring the relationship between ad spend, rank, and we know every item that’s on organic downloads, then optimizing campaigns to deliver the rank that drives a shelf by store and where the most organic users at the most efficient cost. it’s located. You can create a shopping list in the app and there’s a button that with As you develop your user acquisition plan, think not only in terms of download one click, the items on your numbers, but also in terms of number of organic users.

  • 22. 6. Target Loyal Users As you run your advertising across mobile ad networks, you will also want to think in terms of “loyal user” acquisition – not just downloads. A loyal user is a user who takes actions that lead back to ROI. For example, a loyal user may be one who: • Uses the app repeatedly • Clicks through to your online store • Downloads a coupon • Makes an in-app purchase • Places an order • Registers for a service or newsletter Whatever the conversion metric is, it is loyal users on whom you build your app business. “ Starwood has seen a 300 percent increase in mobile A download, or even an app launch, doesn’t mean that you have a loyal user booking revenue generated this year compared to the that translates into a business result.

  • 26. 8. Choose a Proven Mobile Marketing Technology Partner As you get strategic about your mobile app marketing, you’ll want to partner with one or more vendors that provide technology solutions for app marketing. Traditional advertising agencies may have considerable expertise in user acquisition and brand marketing, but as we’ve described, mobile marketing demands very specific expertise and technology. Coca-Cola executive Tom Daly recently emphasized this idea, saying that one of his main goals for 2012 was finding and connecting with the best partners for mobile marketing. He mentioned that mobile marketing is a different skill set than digital marketing, and that his focus then and now was on finding partners who know how to really collaborate so he could “invest in the best” and execute on his vision for mobile.19 “ Mobile sales continue to rise sharply—up by 46.9%—and MillerCoors Director of Digital Marketing Steve Mura echoed the point, now account for 18.5% of describing how you need the right partners to help you win in the mobile space. “We need someone who lives and breathes mobile,” he said, both for total online sales. ” — Nick Dutch, Multimedia Manager, technology and for mobile media management.20 Domino’s Pizza Group 21 26 | | www.fiksu.com/ebooks
