This is the year of mobile (j/k) been around for 5 years….lol
Greater convergence between mobile and SMM
Text to win is not what mobile is all about
SMS should not be overlooked but it’s also not everything that mobile is about
Levi’s Amateur model contest example
CRM, mobile coupon and facebook integration
Picked to try on a pair of jeans at an event, designer would create an image of what Jen would look like in an actual media campaign, don’t hit people over the head, allow people to share a new experience with the brand with their friends.
Mobile call to actions integraqted with: instore POS, OOH wild postings,
Voting application on mobile (more popular sms options)
Each contestant got their own code, you could vote for who you thought should be the top, you would get feedback on ballot as you voted,biggest promoters were the actual people in the contests. Also had an instant win mechanism to help get people walking by to vote. The vanity was the most important aspect of this campaign. Download the pic to your phone. Voting app remained up for 2 weeks after the event, (this whole thing took place 2 years ago) 78% of votes took place outside of the festival dates.
50 facebook and myspace groups started with 1000+ wall posts
SMS blast to all Vancouver participants. Mobile coupons for us would be the holy grail. Push people who opted in to hit a store and buy a pair of pants….e.g of how difficult it was, the store never setup a coupon code on the till..so it was impossible in the end to track ROI.

Tipping point is coming
