Go Mobile: Location-Based Marketing, Apps, Mobile Optimized Ad Campaigns, 2D Codes and Other Mobile Strategies to Grow Your Business [Hardcover] by Jeanne Hopkins (Author) and Jamie Turner (Author).
Reading the following comment in Jeanne Hopkins' (VP Marketing, HubSpot) and Jamie Turner's (Founder, CCO, 60-Second Marketer) new book, "Go Mobile: Location-Based Marketing, Apps, Mobile Optimized Ad Campaigns, 2D Codes and Other Mobile Strategies to Grow Your Business" may inspire you to grab a copy and begin reading: "Gartner predicts that by 2013, the primary way people will access the Internet will be via their mobile browsers." As 2013 is at hand, if you'd like this enormous audience to access your business, too, then this book is for you.
If you are looking beyond just getting a better grasp of the mobile landscape, and are ready to take action by implementing at least a few of this book's mobile marketing strategies (outlined in a step-by-step manner), then grab a copy of this book and start reading.
"Go Mobile" is organized in the following four segments:
(1) Part 1 covers the mobile landscape and discusses some of the best practices used in various mobile marketing case studies ("The Mobile Marketing Landscape" - 6 Chapters)
(2) Part 2 outlines how to set up your business for success in mobile media ("Setting Yourself Up for Success" - 3 Chapters).
(3) Part 3 describes practical tactics used in mobile marketing ("Taking A Deeper Dive Into Mobile Marketing Tools Pool" - 8 Chapters).
(4) Part 4 discusses business-to-business (B2B) mobile marketing, mobile ROI, and the core characteristics of successful mobile marketing campaigns ("Expanding Your Horizons" - 5 Chapters).
Each of these four segments offers practical guidance for implementing effective, efficient, and integrated mobile marketing tools (such as location-based marketing; mobile apps development; mobile optimized ad campaigns; keyword and QR code usage; mobile display ads and search; and more).
Clearly written and easy to understand, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much you can do with a mobile strategy for your own business right now. Highly recommended.
This book explains some of the differences between PC-based online marketing and mobile marketing. In the process, it provides insights that can help give a business the edge over its competition.
In a succinct and easy to read manor, "Go Mobile" comprehensively goes through each major mobile marketing tool (mobile web sites, keyword and QR code usage, mobile display ads and search, mobile apps, location based marketing, etc.), thoroughly explaining the tool and real world examples on how they are used today by some of the most astute marketers, combined with savvy advice on how anyone can put them into practice.
In short, if you read one book on this topic, in my opinion, "Go Mobile" is the one to buy, worth many multiples the price of the publication.
