Rolling with Mobile – Creative Solutions Style
Let’s start off with the lowdown on all things mobile:
- 94% of US consumers have a smartphone.
- 50% of consumers who conduct a local search on their smartphone visit a store within a day. 18% lead to a purchase within a day!
- Google search interest in “near me” has increased 34X since 2011 and nearly doubled since last year. The vast majority come from mobile – 80% in Q4 2014.
- “Near me” searches…spike 55% during both Christmas and New Years.
- 45% of all shopping includes some form of mobile interaction.
It’s undeniable that the customer journey has become increasingly mobile-driven as consumers turn more and more to their mobile devices as a primary source of information, forcing brands and retailers to reassess their campaign strategies and integrate mobile into their advertising efforts. Now, companies must optimize their campaigns for mobile in order to reach the right customer and engage with them at the right point in their purchasing path.
Users are researching, planning, comparing and making purchases (often leading directly to nearest retail locations) using their mobiles devices. Remember, 50% of consumers who search on their mobile devices visit a store within a day – fifty percent!
Adapting marketing strategies to accommodate the mobile experience does not simply mean running desktop ads on mobile devices, advertisers are getting much better results by crafting ad experiences that take advantage of inherent mobile features – calling on users to interact and engage with their ads on a different level. So now, more than ever, it’s imperative to utilize mobile-specific creative to develop the most relevant shopping experience.
