What Does This Mean To You?

Currently over 40% of adults nationwide have a mobile device in their household.  Adults who own mobile devices are more likely to have higher household incomes, work in White-Collar occupations, be homeowners and have children in their household.  They are also much more likely to be in the market for a variety of consumer goods. Mobile devices are also diverting attention from tradition forms of media – the amount of consumers who are involved in “second screening” is growing rapidly.  Since most second screen activity happens during Prime-Time, mobile devices are directly affecting TV ads purchased during their most expensive time slot.  There are numerous mobile solutions that can help your business create location traffic, shopper loyalty, generate awareness and amplify sales.  For more information on the solutions that makes the most sense for your business, please contact:
