Capitalising on the Micro-moment Economy

Mobile advertising now accounts for more than 50% of all digital spend for the first time. Running counter to this, is a less convenient observation that the vast majority of digital advertising either goes completely unnoticed, or is being blocked by users. How can brands tap into the multitude of micro-moments? In a world where smartphone users check their devices over 150 times a day and platforms are engineered to feed the dopamine addiction of notifications, can brands capitalise on this profound shift in consumer behaviour? This session looks at micro-moment mobile strategies that are transforming the way brands communicate with consumers.
