greghickmanDid you know 91% of the people on the planet have a mobile phone? And 50% of those people use their mobile phones as their primary resource for the Internet. It’s obvious your content needs to be mobile-friendly.

And to talk about the best practices for mobile marketing, I welcomed Greg Hickman to the show.

Greg has deep roots in mobile marketing dating back to 2005. He saw the early success and the potential from the early days and he’s been on the mobile marketing path ever since, including building his own text message marketing company.

In episode 62, Greg deepens our understanding of the value of mobile marketing from SMS messages to mobile-friendly web sites. We talk about:

  • Just how important it is for you to create a great first mobile impression of your web site.
