We are all experiencing a Mobile Mind shift – Discovering Business in a Mobile Moment
Smartphones are becoming an extension of our brains; we pull them out every time we need help. Every successful interaction reinforces the idea that whatever the problem, a mobile device provides the solution — or should. The result of all this positive reinforcement is a Pavlovian response we call the mobile mind shift.
Embrace The Mobile Moments In your Customer’s Life
Mobile moments are the points in time and space when someone pulls out a mobile device to get what they want in their immediate context. These moments are a battleground for customers’ attention. You can use the immediate context to engage someone in those moments of need in both a simple and relevant way.
Focus your Business On Mobile Moments — Or Be Disrupted
Mobile moments affect every part of your business, from marketing and sales to product development and employee productivity. If you serve the needs of a customer or an employee in a mobile moment, you can win their business and their loyalty. If you fail, an entrepreneurial company will step in and fill the need, disrupting your business.
