Mobile Strategy is for Life not just for Christmas

Since my own less than impressive mobile christmas shopping experience I’ve been waiting to see how mobile figured in this years Christmas statistics.

Many brands heeded the go-mobile call and attempted to ensure some form of mobile presence in time for the festive season with some doing it well and other’s still low on the learning curve.

Mobile Shopping Advent-ageous for some Retailers

Domino’s demonstrate the importance of mCommerce…BUT could make even more mobile money

TheNextWeb reported yesterday that Domnio’s mobile orders topped £130,000 in one day. This is great news for Domino’s and its mobile customers and they are showing other businesses the growing importance of mobile commerce and of course mobile marketing.
