    Ways to Win on Mobile

    It is no surprise that mobile activity continues to climb and account for more time spent online than any other device. In fact, 40% of people say that they prefer to complete their entire shopping journey on mobile. However, businesses are still seeing more conversions taking place on desktops than they do on mobile. Why is this? Not because of the smaller size screen as you may think. It is because the experience is not great for the consumer.

    Capturing the Mobile Moment

    It’s not hard to see on a daily, no scratch that, an hourly basis the impact that mobile smart phones have on our behavior. Take a gander at any waiting room of any type of office and you’ll see heads down, fingers scrolling and swiping through screens. When you’re enjoying a meal at a restaurant, you’ll notice nearly every table has someone interacting on their device. Even in the corporate world, almost every individual at the meeting table will have their phones out of their pocket and right in front of them, making sure to capture every notification instantly.

National campaigns are already moving to this type of targeting - 58% of national brand advertising campaigns employed geo-precise targeting (including geo-fencing and geo-behavioral targeting) in Q1 2013.  [1] Be the local advertiser ahead of the curve.
    2) Cost-Effective
