Mobile Marketing:It’s Changing Everything
March 26, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDT
San Francisco, CA 94107 United States
Mobile access to everything online. Consumers “snacking” on content no matter where they are. Services available 24/7. There is a fundamental shift taking place in how consumers discover and purchase new products and services, and it’s changing everything for marketers. And yet 55% of marketers report they still don’t have an effective mobile marketing strategy. Even for those who might have a strategy, they lack adequate resources, staffing and expertise.
Do you know the best way to reach and engage your mobile audience? Do you know exactly what works and what doesn’t? The March SFAMA event brings together an expert panel of mobile marketers to discuss current trends and share best practices on how to leverage and optimize mobile platforms.
Join the SFAMA and your fellow marketers for another great evening of networking, sharing strategies and tactics, and a dynamic discussion with leading industry marketers.
When: Tuesday, March 26 6:30 to 8:30pm
