What We Like

What We Don’t Like
   •   Mobile platforms (operating systems and devices) are unique, so development can be complex
   •   Different service providers can create unknown road blocks
   •   Varying processes for submitting, and making updates, to incompatible app platforms forces efforts to
       be duplicated
   •   Accounting for diversities in mobile screen sizes and devices can be challenging
   •   A lot of companies are having a hard time grasping mobile as a budget item


Cost
Budget will depend on strategy and development requirements. To implement a mobile strategy it could
range from $5,000 to cover a few basics, up to $100,000 plus. Don’t discount the necessary ongoing
management of a mobile program, either through an agency or an internal team member.

Mobile is not a buzz word, it’s a critical communication channel to include in your marketing mix. There are
endless creative ideas to be integrated into your mobile efforts, but It takes planning and strategic thought to
