Following considerable research and analysis, I'm now convinced that mobile marketing isn't only the latest fad but becoming the ultimate marketing concept in the 21st century.
If you're employed in a company or working for a brand then you'll be pretty aware of the following:
Mobile phones are wonderful, they hold all your friends telephone numbers and details; you can order up a Pizza, use them as a map finder and browse the world around us. They have become an essential must have tool in the modern world. But there are some critical differences one must consider between a green mobile phone and a ?normal? phone.

1: A humongous portion of traffic and conversion of your website originates via the use of tablets and smartphones. Furthermore, it's increasing daily.
2: The users of such gadgets are being transformed into your potential customers and sale leads because of their constant engagement and participation in their smartphones.
Recent research has established that 1 out of every 5 individual in the US browse the internet through their mobile devices. So it's time to pull up your socks and make a mobile website if you want to keep up with competitors.

Here are few steps to get back to into the ‘major mobile league’. Of marketing:
- You must make sure that you customize your website for mobile device users and mobile browsers. Design a mobile friendly website. There are various tools on the Internet that help you create a mobile version of your website without having to learn any code. Most of these tools are affordable but only a few actually do a good job. You should therefore be very careful when selecting your tool.
- Spend time learning about how Google ranks websites and some of the factors that can lead to a ranking penalty. Learn everything about responsive web designing. This will help you create a mobile friendly website that ultimately leads to success with your marketing efforts.
- Apply extensive focus on improving the loading speed of web pages. This includes reducing the size of images and avoiding the use of flash. Slow loading pages lead to bounce rates since users will quickly move on to another site.
