It’s time to take mobile marketing seriously. No other media is able to engage customers as personally (on their own device), pervasively (always on) or geographically (enabled by geo-tracking) as mobile media. Mobile literally enables marketers to connect with the right person, in the right place, with the right message, at the right time.

But what will mobile marketing success look like in the year ahead and how will marketers achieve it?

To find out, Demand Metric in partnership with Ascend2 fielded the Mobile Marketing Benchmark Survey and completed interviews with 271 marketing and sales decision-makers and practitioners from around the world. We thank those busy professionals for sharing their valuable insights with us.

In this edition of our study, Mobile Marketing: Benchmarks by Revenue Attainment, the charts and graphs compare the strategies and practices of companies that have succeeded in achieving or exceeding their revenue goals with those that have not.

This research has been produced for your use. Put it to work in your own marketing strategy planning and presentation materials. Clip the charts and write about them in your blog or post them on social media. Please share this research credited as published.
