Adoption of mobile marketing is set to expand significantly over the next 12 months as consumers become more reliant on their handsets.

He claimed that mobile marketing has become a “natural extension” for any multichannel campaign, due to increasing uptake of smartphones and other devices for communication and messaging.

“For example, when an SMS offer is sent to a customer based on an email he has opened, the chances of a sale increases,” he explained.

Mr Azuri’s comments echo those of StreamSend president Dan Forootan, who told industry site MarketingProfs that “complementary media” such as social media, email and mobile marketing should be combined.
