The “always on” and “always with” nature of mobile devices provides vast opportunities for brands to deliver messages in relevant and engaging ways like never before. How can advertisers leverage the technological capabilities that come along with it, while still putting transparency and consumer control first?

  • How has self-regulation advanced the consumer protections of transparency, control, and data security?
  • When developing new mobile campaigns, technologies, and general marketing for mobile innovation, what should companies keep in mind regarding privacy?
  • Mobile provides technological and practical challenges to consumer privacy—cross-screen tracking, geo-location data, and small screen notice.  Where do the pitfalls lie and how can the industry turn challenges into opportunities?
  • As mobile becomes ubiquitous, where are the areas we need to avoid and what does the future hold?

Finding the Best Creative Formats for Optimal Mobile Experience
Advertisers Discuss the Challenges and Opportunities Within the Native-Mobile Ecosystem

With 55% of Americans on smartphones, it’s time for brands and advertisers to smarten up in the mobile arena. As users grow to expect customized and tailored content within their mobile experience, advertisers expect to be able to connect with them in a manner that matches the platform. In this industry town hall, we will discuss and debate mobile advertising tactics and techniques, from standard to native, to provide clear perspective on where the industry is going.

  • Mobile is relatively early in its monetization stages particularly for brands. Why has this been the case?
  • What are tactics that have worked and are working from a creative format perspective?
  • How can we balance the need for custom creative experiences with the need for standards (which help scale)?

Eric Franchi, Co-Founder, Undertone

Mobile Measurement: Same Story or Different Beast?

While the form factor and technology may be different, at its core, is mobile marketing and measurement sufficiently similar to traditional display to be considered largely the same?  Or, can we learn from mistakes made as desktop advertising evolved to ensure we make the most of the massive shift that's underway in consumer behavior?  The answer is probably a bit of both.
