Mobility is undoubtedly the biggest revolution in the 21st century.  The dramatic acceleration of smartphone usage over the past few years across 1 billion users are changing the way we go about our daily activities. In fact, mobile internet usage is expected to surpass desktop internet usage in 2014.

Smartphones are playing an increasingly important role in purchasing decisions. At least 48% of users consult their mobile devices before making any purchase decisions. Yet investment on mobile still accounts for less than 1% of the average marketing budget.  Local businesses and retailers are still adapting slowly to the trend of mobile first. Neglecting the mobile category is a huge mistake as 61% of users are likely to leave a mobile-website that is not user-friendly. Two-thirds of retailers say they see more value in allowing customers to use their smartphones within a store, and retailers apps are likely to see five times more engagement.

This infographic by Gryffin made in partnership with TollFreeForwarding, spells out the nature of mobile marketing clearly.  Though mobile has the best and most effective ways for advertisers to reach consumers, businesses are yet to take full advantage of m-commerce.
