If you're looking to learn about mobile marketing - I highly recommend buying this book, it provides a great introduction to mobile marketing. And where Kim can't get in depth on certain topics, she provides resources that you can utilize to get more information.

She provides great information on how to determine if your target demographic aligns well with the mobile crowd and whether or not it is worth pursuing. She provides great demographic hints related to both culture and age that I wasn't aware of.

Also, she effectively presents all the different players that need to come into play for a successful mobile marketing campaign - like short code providers, aggregators, text message companies and more. You can't just start a mobile campaign without having your ducks in a row, and Kim tells you what you need to consider before starting. Although I have created mobile websites in the past, I hadn't considered all of these factors when it came to effectively marketing a mobile website.

The only reason I'm giving this boof 4 stars instead of 5 is because I thought it was a bit light on content in some areas - especially related to mobile search. Since this is the area that most interests me I would have liked more insight about pay-per-call, click-to-call, and examples of campaigns that actually had success. I would have liked to have seen screenshots of AdWords for setting up a mobile campaign and how ads look on a mobile browser. I would have liked to have seen the Google mobile search interface - and I am curious why Google mobile search defaults to web results instead of mobile (at least for me). But I do realize that I'm being a bit nitpicky and that in order to do all of this for each content area would have resulted in a 2000 page book.

This book left me wanting a lot more. A volume like this would shine if there were detailed and extended examples of campaigns that worked well, and not so well. Why did some succeed and others fail - that's what we learn from. There are some short case studies, but nothing goes into detailed and extended metrics or enough ROI information.

This is the first book I have read on mobile marketing, and I read it AFTER I started my business' first mobile marketing campaign. It was very useful in helping me understand the "lay of the land" in the mobile marketing world, explaining the different types of mobile marketing, legal issues, and integrating mobile campaigns with social networking. The online resource guide was very helpful, and even though I bought the book with text messaging marketing in mind, I ended up with a bunch of other ideas that I have since put into practice. My only disappointment was that I wanted even more detail on some topics, but I'm sure that's because I'm just at the beginning of my journey in this area. I recommend this book to anyone who is even thinking about mobile marketing.

I liked this book. I thought it was pretty well written. I think it could have been proofed and edited a bit and thus made a little easier to read. Basically, it felt a little wordy to me. However, maybe that's just me being overly picky. It was split into the following two sections and chapters:

I. Mobile marketing strategy & implementation (1-6)
II. Mobile marketing toolbox: Tactics, campaign ideas, & resources (7-13)

-1. Foreward, by Laura Marriott
0. Introduction
1. The basics & the big picture
2. 5 steps to creating a dynamic mobile marketing campaign
3. Legal issues & implications of mobile marketing
4. Launching your campaign
5. Marketing your mobile campaign
6. Tracking your results
7. Voice
8. Text message campaigns
9. Creating a mobile Web presence
10. Mobile Web promotion strategies
11. Social networking & mobile campaigns
12. Proximity marketing
13. More mobile methods
14. Moving ahead in mobile
A. Putting mobile into context
B. Glossary

When I finished reading the book I felt as though a mobile campaign is kind of like an email campaign coupled with an ezine or online newsletter. If you create an ebook that people want a copy of, then you can give it away in exchange for an email address and the right to send some emails to that email address in the form of an ezine. In the same way for a mobile campaign, you can create an ebook that people want a copy of, then you can give it away in exchange for a telephone number or email address to be used for voice and text messages received by a mobile device.

I must say the author was quite thorough in putting this book together. Just look at the chapter titles and the sequence in which they are presented.

Kim really knows her stuff. Purchased the book before I took her boot camp course. Very informative and detailed. Everything you need to know about mobile marketing is in this book.

This book is just recounting the basic concept about Mobile-Marketing. Most information is just common knowledge about social Media. The technical aspect of this book is weak while the strategic illustration about mobile marketing has a lot of rooms to be improved. The book is too pricy for what you get. Not worth the price.
