Aiming to cast light on the complexities of this increasingly critical communications channel, the guide provides a clear, unbiased view of the current market. The Tanla guide aims to offer step-by-step guidance to agencies and brands about how to design, launch and manage mobile marketing campaigns. Edited by mobile marketing guru Helen Keegan and drawing on the expertise of senior figures at O2, Vodafone, Admob and Emerging Media Platforms, the Tanla Mobile Marketing and Advertising Guide identifies key areas that must be addressed for the industry to thrive. It promises to be essential reading for all marketing and mobile executives. “2008 promises to be the year that mobile marketing truly earns its spurs but the Guide has revealed that there exists a growing knowledge gap that threatens to hold it back,” explains Gautam Sabharwal, Director, Tanla Mobile. “Mobile marketing has promised much and has become a critical element in the marketing mix but the feeling persists that many companies do not yet know how to make the most out of mobile marketing possibilities. That’s why we have spent the past eight months developing this guide to provide the mobile industry with answers to the challenges and opportunities that exist.” The Guide covers every aspect of mobile’s place in the marketing mix. From campaign mechanisms to common challenges, from leveraging user-generated content to exploiting mobile TV, it contains everything mobile executives need to know about this rapidly evolving market.
