Event Details

In 2010, internet access via mobile devices surpassed 50% of all online traffic. Mobile apps and mobile websites have been game-changers for many businesses, but how do you decide which might be right for your own organization? This session will cover how to make educated, business-specific decisions regarding the constantly evolving world of the mobile medium. We will discuss marketing opportunities, trends, technologies and considerations for creating content-in-context to the platform on which it is delivered.

Framing this discussion will be a comparison of mobile applications versus web applications optimized for mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) and when it might be appropriate to use each. We will present several cases of businesses using these tools effectively and round out the session with a set of actionable tasks that you can use to create the most direct and effective roadmap to a mobile future for your company or organization
