Mobile marketing is coming of age, and the pace of change is now exponential. In 2012 alone, 1.75 billion mobiles were sold globally and mobile devices look set to become our most important communications platform, eclipsing the TV set and the desktop computer at work.
Analyst ﬁrm eMarketer projects a near-ﬁve fold rise in mobile ad spending from 2011 to 2017. It forecasts that US advertisers will devote $27.13bn (£18bn) to mobile representing, which is around 45% of all digital ad spend and 13.8% of total media spend.
For brands, navigating this changing landscape requires a comprehensive understanding of the key trends, changing habits and new opportunities that the digital ecosystem will bring in the year ahead.
This paper will do just that, exploring how media and advertising are being transformed by mobile and what this means for brands. Download your free copy here.4 pagesSponsored by:

When pitted against digital marketing, mail comes across as pretty old fashioned but this is not the view of every marketer. For example, Porsche ran a recent campaign where photographs of the car sitting in driveways of the rich and famous were mailed to the target audience. The combination of localism, personalisation and digital printing had a powerful effect.
Similarly, in the financial services industry, direct mail remains at the heart of the media strategy for its relevance and good response rates. People enjoy receiving something tangible and mail, when integrated with other channels, can really drive business performance.
But where do you stand? Is mail still a valuable strand in your marketing mix?

There has been so much content and so many events produced over the last year, which purport to reveal the real value of social media but most end up, at best, drawing a rather clumsy, imprecise line from awareness to sales.
Brand Republic’s three part programme, produced in partnership with Bazaarvoice, comprises a survey, report and webcast and will offer marketers actionable insights into how to transform social media from merely an awareness builder into an actual sales-driver.
Drawing from a range of case studies, featuring the likes of Argos and Dell, this programme will cut through all the half-hearted content out there to reveal how marketers today are powering demonstrable sales as well as improving product development using social channels.

European consumers are increasingly aware of cookies and other online tracking activities and are becoming increasingly concerned about their potential affect on privacy. European law now regulates this space via the ePrivacy Directive (i.e. "Cookie Directive"), which sets standards for the level of notice and control that websites must provide consumers with when using cookies or other forms of tracking technology.
So how has this law affected the online ecosystem and what does it mean for marketers?
Are self-regulatory initiatives led by industry associations like the DAA and EDAA addressing public concern on this issue?
Will most consumers opt-out from tracking activities when offered the choice or can notice and control mechanisms actually help websites better engage their visitors?
In this live webcast TRUSTe and Osborne Clarke will unveil their recent research examining consumers' perceptions in the UK and other key EU markets around online tracking and privacy.
Tune in live where we’ll reveal the surprising findings to help you as marketers learn how effective privacy can help you engage visitors and drive conversions whilst still ensuring compliance.
