Is Mobile First Marketing Part of Your Strategy?
Think about it for a second – what are the everyday chores in your life that you now do a mobile device?
- Check the weather
- Access your bank accounts
- Pay your bills
- Find out hours for the local gym, restaurant or shop
- Buy clothes, groceries and gifts
- Order lunch or dinner and have it delivered to you so you can do the above?
Increased online information and e-commerce has made life much more accessible for us. As a small business owner, you’ve likely seen benefits in your business too.
A recent Criteo report stated that “Mobile purchase now make up 34% of all ecommerce purchases, with 40% forecast by the end of this year. In the US, 53% of those sales take place on smartphones, with the rest on tablets.”
