Buying online display and search ads can be expensive for small business owners, so narrowing the parameters of where and how to display ads can save money.  Mobile marketing can be an effective marketing tool for small businesses and a good way to stay engaged with customers.  Small business owners can use mobile search capabilities to identify and target customers and present them with ads not only based on their demographic data, but their zip codes and street addresses. 

According to research, U.S. mobile spending—including ads on phones—rose 69 percent in 2012 to $6.7 billion and is expected to reach $10.46 billion this year.  Even Google has changed its main ad selling platform to accommodate mobile ad campaigns.  Despite the rapid growth in the mobile marketing industry, research shows that lack of strategy and associated resources continue to be a hindrance to businesses.  This webinar will help small business owners effectively navigate mobile marketing to create successful ad campaigns.
