  • A mobile marketing shake down

    This interactive Coca-Cola campaign has changed the way that advertisers look at mobile marketing opportunities by engaging the consumer with an interactive game and rewarding them with promotions (coupons, free content or prizes) for their participation.

    In the “Chok! Chok! Chok! ad shakes up mobile marketing” article on Reuters, Katie Holton writes, “Mobile advertising is set to grow by more than 50 percent a year over the period to hit $40 billion in 2016, according to Informa research, but the figures are still tiny compared to television ads. Global ad spend in 2012 was $500 billion.”

    This Coca-Cola ad is just a glimpse into the future of mobile marketing, where we will soon have the capability to target users by their location and web browsing history.

Analysts predict that mobile internet will grow bigger than the ‘desktop internet’. So if you haven’t already, it’s time to start thinking about this medium as part of your marketing mix. Take a look at your target audience and evaluate their mobile habits and behavior patterns to see if this may be another way for you to communicate with them.
