Marketing is a tool for personation. We use it to draw attention, encourage trial, adoption and purchase. When we’re really good our customers become advocates and do the job for us. But, to be really good, as Cicero told us in 80BC, we must understand our customer.

“If you wish to persuade me, you must think my thoughts, feel my feelings, and speak my words.”
Cicero 80BC

To stay relevant, modern retailers realize that having a clear mobile strategy is no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have, giving them a clear competitive advantage to address all stages of the consumer purchase funnel – Awareness, Engagement, Consideration, Conversion and Loyalty.

As marketers we are all students of consumer behaviour and no doubt all of us have observed how the mobile phone has evolved to become the one indispensable device that few of us can live without.  As retailers the mobile phone provides a new channel to enhance your marketing strategy to attract, engage, transact and support customers.
