Mobile Marketing Grows, But Targeting Necessary

NEW YORK (Hypebot) –
Mobile ad spending will grow 27% to $2.1 billion in 2010, according to the Mobile Marketing Association. But while the audience for mobile marketing is growing, it's still relatively small and confined to a limited segment of the market.

Marketers who employ mobile marketing to the wrong group risk turning them off according to an analysis of BIGresearch’s Simultaneous Media Usage Survey of over 22,000. Those who like mobile marketing tend to be young men. They are cell phone-centered and more likely to use social media. Those who don’t like mobile marketing tend to be slightly older women who are not as centered around their cell phone or social media.
