Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/21/2012 -- No longer a niche value-added service (VAS), mobile marketing and advertising is now a mainstream service offering. As is the case with many VAS applications, there is an interdependency between the mobile operator and various third parties including media companies, advertisers, portals, content providers, brands, and various other intermediaries.
Drivers for mobile marketing include a dramatic increase in smartphone usage, over-the-top applications, introduction of new methods such as abbreviated dial codes, and many other factors. Worldwide share of mobile web traffic alone has increased from 3.8% to 10% from 2010 to 2012. Mobile Internet usage is expected to overtake desktop usage as early as 2014. SMS remains the most common denominator among mobile marketing modalities with approximately 3B SMS enabled phones worldwide.
