– The MMA
(Mobile Marketing Association) (www.mmaglobal.com
) today published “Getting Started — A Brand Marketer’s Guide to the Mobile Web and Mobile Apps: Not an Either/or Proposition.” Available as a free download, this white paper is designed to provide brands, agencies and other marketing professionals with a concise, hands-on guide for creating, measuring and monetizing campaigns that feature mobile apps and mobile websites.
“Getting Started — A Brand Marketer’s Guide to the Mobile Web and Mobile Apps” shows marketers how they can combine mobile apps and the mobile Web to create campaigns that are more effective and have greater reach than if they used only one of the channels. Today, more than 34 percent of U.S. mobile phone owners use mobile apps, and more than 36 percent use mobile browsers.
The 14-page white paper covers topics such as:
- The three main app types: branded, media-related and mobile shopping/commerce.
- The four main types of mobile websites: branded micro and landing pages, corporate, media and commerce.
- A comparison between apps and the mobile Web in terms of audience overlap, strengths, challenges, features, demographic considerations and user experience.
- Tips for building consumer awareness of mobile apps and mobile Web offerings.
- Analytic tools for measuring a campaign’s impact and reach.
- Monetization opportunities and considerations, including freemium, paid and ad-supported models.
- Best practices for protecting and enhancing the consumer experience.
