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.Read more ›

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.Read more ›
I thought the author did a good job with the organization of this handbook as she divided it into two parts. In Part 1, the author begins with an introduction to mobile marketing, then provides a guide that helps with the design of an actual strategy. In this section, I felt that the author did a good job emphasizing the fact that mobile marketing strategies are going to vary heavily depending on what type of business someone is running, as well as the personal preferences of the owner. At the end of Part 1, the author shifts her focus to the implementation of the actual strategy itself, providing what you need to know to start and who to contact for what you’ll need. Part 2 focuses more on sustaining the strategy once it is in place, as well as increasing its effectiveness over time.Read more ›
