Social Is Mobile, Mobile Is Social
The overwhelming majority of social media is accessed on devices. But at the same time, it is clear that mobile, with its roots in person-to-person exchanges, is a more natural platform for sharing than the desktop ever was. Isn’t it time we stopped pretending social and mobile marketing are separate channels? In its seventh year of thought leadership in the field, Mediapost’s Mobile Insider Summit breaks down the silos and focuses on the enormous potential for mobile as the primary tool for social media and the ways in which the social/mobile dynamic impacts all mobile marketing. We will be looking at all aspects of how marketers can leverage the mobilized sharing economy.
Lets get “Smocial”
Aiming the topics we will explore:
- How advertisers can engage the person-to-person dynamic of mobile in more traditional forms of display advertising.
- How the intense sharing economy of mobile leads marketers to richer kinds of engagements with consumers.
- How mobile impacts the native advertising landscape.
- User-generated content on mobile – leveraging the multimedia powerhouse in everyone’s hands
- The new visual economy of mobile: Instagram, Pinterest, Vine as marketing vehicles.
- How marketers are finding their voice in the emerging messaging app space
At the Mobile Insider Summit we look deeper into what it really means for advertisers to find a place on a device that after all is fundamentally social. Yup, it’s a phone after all.
