  • To “engage” means to “start relationships, acquire, generate activity, stimulate social interaction with organization and community members, [and] be present at time of consumers expressed need.” Furthermore, engagement can be initiated by the consumer (“Pull” in form of a click or response) or by the marketer (“Push”).

  • Personal, intimate devices (often always with us)
  • Data, information, connectivity available anytime and anywhere
  • Information at our fingertips (literally)
    • Move towards touchscreens?
  • Amplifies the expectation and demand for instant information in appropriate formats
  • Gives location-sensitive data much more value

Smartphone and tablet usage
  • Pew Internet research on mobile usage
    • As of May 2013:
      • 91% of American adults have a cell phone
      • 56% of American adults have a smartphone
      • 28% of cell owners own an Android; 25% own an iPhone; 4% own a Blackberry

  • Money transfers and payments (mobile commerce, mobile banking, near-field communications (NFC)
  • Location-based services (LBS) 
  • Mobile advertising

  • Apps or browser-based service?

Phones as virtual wallets using near-field communication (NFC)
  • The pace of technological adoption: the U.S. payments example. It took:
    • 28 years to reach 100 million mag-stripe credit card accounts.
    • 12 years to reach 100 million debit accounts.
    • 7 years to reach 100 million PayPal accounts.
  • It is projected that it will take only:
    • 5 years to reach 100 million contactless credit/debit cards.
    • 2–3 years to deploy 100 million NFC-enabled (near field communication) mobile handsets 3.
nfc definition
NFC - definition
  • Near field communication (NFC): a short-range wireless communication technology using radio frequency waves. Enables data to be exchanged between devices separated by a few centimetres.
  • Some uses
    • Transit tickets (phone = ticket)
    • Boarding passes for air travel
    • Phone to phone file sharing
    • Tap / wave to pay

  • Apple devices don’t support NFC (yet?). Use proprietary technology
mobile payment examples bridging the physical and digital worlds
Mobile payment examples: bridging the physical and digital worlds
  • Making payments
    • Google Wallet (Android phones only) – tap to pay using NFC, plus online payments
    • Google Wallet vs. Square Wallet vs. PayPal: a mobile wallet field test (video)
  • Accepting payments
    • Square Register – an opportunity for accepting credit cards without a merchant account (and pretty much anywhere)
    • PayPal Here – very similar to Square video to show how it works
location based services and check ins
Location-based services and check-ins
  • Pew Internet research (2013) 74% of adult smartphone owners ages 18 and older say they use their phone to get directions or other information based on their current location.
  • Among adult social media users ages 18 and older, 30% say that at least one of their accounts is currently set up to include their location in their posts.
  • 12% of adult smartphone owners say they use a geosocial service to “check in” to certain locations or share their location with friends, down from 18% in early 2012.
  • Among these geosocial service users, 39% say they check into places on Facebook, 18% say they use Foursquare, and 14% say they use Google Plus, among other services.
marketing uses of location based devices
Marketing uses of location-based devices
  • Coupons
  • Maps
  • Local businesses
  • The Dangers of Mobile Advertising (multi-layered marketing using humour)
challenges of text messaging sms
Challenges of text messaging (SMS)
  • Canada’s new anti-spam legislation covers all forms of electronic communication so the very strict consent framework will apply
  • At the moment people look at text messages more than other types on online marketing messages (but that won’t last if usage is abused by marketers)
  • Traditional SMS being replaced by “over-the-top” services like WhatsApp and Viber (walled garden problem)
research on text spamming
Research on text spamming
  • Pew Internet 2012: complaints re use of texting by marketers
  • Some 79% of cell phone owners say they use text messaging on their cells.
  • 69% of those who are texters say they get unwanted spam or text messages. Of those texters, 25% face problems with spam/unwanted texts at least weekly.
issues for mobile advertising
Issues for mobile advertising
  • “Fat finger syndrome”
  • Low tolerance on mobile, so monetization is still a problem
  • Indications that some services are doing ok with mobile now
    • 41 percent of Facebook's $1.6 billion in Q2 2013 revenue came from mobile (but they have the advantage of a very large userbase
    • But Facebook Home hasn’t really got much traction
      • (video) Mark Zuckerberg talks about Facebook and mobile at TechCrunch Disrupt 2013

trends in mobile advertising
Trends in mobile advertising
  • Different strategies for different devices because of different usage patterns?
  • Typical 30 second video ad model doesn’t fit - brands will create different length ads according to the medium eg. Instagram (max 15 seconds) and Vine video (max 6 seconds)
  • Traditional banner and MPU (mid-page unit) ads will be used less and replaced by rich media
  • Quality not quantity in terms of views more important. Cost per engagement (CPE) is a better measure

html5 versus native apps for mobile
HTML5 versus native apps for mobile
  • HTML5 is a technology that allows the use of rich apps that run on any device via a standard web browser
  • Advantage of HTML5
    • Build once and deploy to many mobile devices. Native apps need to be built separately for each mobile OS
    • No apps to download (reduces friction)

distinguish between augmented reality and virtual reality
Distinguish between augmented reality and virtual reality
  • Augmented reality is the addition of a layer of data/information (text, video, audio etc) to the physical world in real time (most usually done with a smart phone or tablet).
  • Virtual reality is a computer generated simulation of the real world or a fantasy world that the user can interact with (usually) in real time.
augmented reality ar as a mobile strategy
Augmented reality (AR) as a mobile strategy
  • “Augmented Reality (AR) is an environment where a real life is enhanced by virtual elements in real time. The purpose of AR is to enhance the information we naturally receive through our five senses, by adding superimposed, constructed virtual elements to bring complementary information and meaning that may not be possible to see by natural means. ”

qr codes
QR Codes
  • QR (Quick Response) codes -Primitive version of augmented reality – really just a bridge between the physical and the virtual
  • Uptake is quite low (need to download an app)
  • Poorly executed usage (no value for the effort)
  • They are unsightly and compete for space on packaging, billboards, print media etc
  • Easy to create
    • Some examples of creative marketing uses
true ar
True AR
  • Augment print or other physical media and actual places with digital content eg. Layarand Aurasma
    • TED talk showing how Aurasma works (uses image recognition as the trigger) 8 minute video
  • Users need to download an app, but the experience is much more rewarding than QR codes
  • The physical element that is being augmented does not have to be altered at all – image recognition does the work and triggers the data layer
  • Still pretty cutting edge so has the novelty advantage for a campaign
some ar examples
SomeAR examples
  • AR can be used in advertisements, billboards, magazines etc and simply by “recognition” of physical objects such as buildings
  • Also tied to location based sensing
  • The Airwalk invisible pop-up store
  • Ikea’s 2014 catalog lets you see the furniture in your home
  • Disney example of AR in children’s book
  • Google’s Ingress game recognizes historical landmarks
brainstorming opportunities for mobile
Brainstorming opportunities for mobile
  • Products and services for mobile?
  • Promotions via mobile?
  • Think of as many as you can, then think about the marketing challenges you might face.
  • The 2013 Mobile Winners Gallery (Smartie Awards) might help you get some ideas
