Can Companies Afford to Ignore The New Mobile-First Mindset?

Anytime, any place, anywhere. Combining always-on super-fast connectivity with the cloud, smart portable devices, and insights from Big Data, the whole industries, from Automotive and retail to Banking and utilities, are changing.

Rightly or wrongly, i feel there is a general need for global companies to appreciate that the new “Mobile Enabled Next-Generation Consumers” have changed the way they use their phones. And if the effect on consumers is significant, then the effect on businesses is seismic.

Today many smart consumers with the new mobile-first mindset can research about products, check reviews, compare prices, talk to other customers of the “product or service” that they are planning of buying and all this can take place on their Smartphone in minutes.

As mobile device penetration increases and connectivity becomes faster,  any company that is not considering how to interact with consumers, but also employees, on their mobile is missing out on a huge potential market.

Analysts claim the mobile advertising space totaled $13.1 billion in 2013 and say that figure will exceed $40 billion by 2017.

  1. Isn’t it ironic that mobile-first is characterized by smartphones use for EVERYTHING except calling someone. Engagement strategy is as important as content If you’re going to advertise to this audience.
