GBDaly Smile Rating - 5 smiles Up )))))

“Mobile is the fastest-growing arena of marketing, but it is also a space that can be intimidating for all types of business because the customer is in total control and brands have to be invited in..." ~~ Tom Eslinger, Saatchi & Saatchi’s multiple Cannes award-winning Worldwide Creative Director of Digital and author of Mobile Magic: The Saatchi & Saatchi Guide to Mobile Marketing and Design

Mobile Magic: The Saatchi & Saatchi Guide to Mobile Marketing and Design by Tom Eslinger is not your standard mobile marketing guide – it is fast becomming the “bible” to the world of mobile marketing.

Mobile is big business and is the most rapidly "adopted consumer technology" in the world.

According to the ITU (International Telecommunication Union), worldwide mobile phone subscriptions grew from 12.4 million in 1990 to over 6.8 billion by February 2013, penetrating about 96% of the global population (estimated at about 7.1 billion) and reaching the bottom of the economic pyramid.

Now, more than ever, the demand to create mobile marketing campaigns successfully and with impact is crucial.

Mobile connectivity is virtually ubiquitous and it’s going to take “Mobile Magic” to keep ahead and be successful at implementing mobile marketing campaigns. (photo right courtesy of FreeDigitalPhotos)

Helping marketers in doing just that is the new book "Mobile Magic: The Saatchi & Saatchi Guide to Mobile Marketing and Design" by Tom Eslinger (Wiley, February 2014).

“Mobile Magic” puts relative content into relevant perspective – besides including a worthy historical section on the evolution of mobile, Eslinger shares his insights and perspectives on the nature and scope of mobile marketing like no one else can.

Reflecting on his decades of experiences as Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi, Eslinger tells real-world mobile marketing stories from Saatchi & Saatchi clients Lexus, General Mills’ Lucky Charms and P&G’s Gillette Venus.

According to Eslinger, creating successful mobile marketing campaigns must involve 4 key elements known as “MIST” (Mobile, Intimate, Social and Transactional). This coupled with his three filter Ps (Portable, Personal and Potent) are essential for consistent mobile marketing successes.

Eslinger emphasizes “why” being without any of these key essentials a mobile campaign will never reach its full potential and “how" marketers can be successful "when" they receive target audience feedback to their brands through social network communications and mobile transactions.

Eslinger lists “5 things to do right now” sections at chapter endings, which are highly effective in helping readers navigate mobile, understand intricacies and intimacies of mobile, and realize the importance of engaging customers through mobile.

As you read the book you will note many aspects of mobile you thought you knew but really didn’t.

“Mobile Magic” is filled with so many valuable takeaways it’s more than a guide – it’s like a “bible” to the world of mobile marketing. Every marketing and creative director who needs to implement mobile marketing campaigns for their business needs this book.
