MOBILE MARKETING: JA VOHL..DANKE..

Are you thinking mobile yet… if not you should be.

Consider these stats:

  • There are 5.2 billion mobile subscribers globally (77% of the world’s population).
  • In 2012, smartphone sales will overtake computers.
  • By 2013, more people will access the Internet through their mobile than through a PC.
  • By 2015, mobile broadband could be 3-4 times faster than fixed line broadband in many countries.
  • 79 percent of U.S. consumers use a smartphone to help with their shopping.
  • On average, people look at their phones 150 times per day.

 

With smartphones rapidly reaching critical mass in some markets, mobile is evolving from a “discovery” to a purchase tool for consumers.

At the Nielsen Consumer 360 conference in Frankfurt, Germany, strategies for driving an integrated mobile strategy were revealed.

Growth Potential in Germany is Big

With more than one mobile phone per person in Germany, it is a strong mobile market, but the potential for growth exists. German mobile consumers are connected and getting smarter. Nearly two out of every three (63%) mobile purchases in Germany are smartphones.

Today, 30 percent of Germans own a smartphone, compared with 45 percent in the U.K., 40 percent in the U.S., and 36 percent in Russia.

And with 83 percent of German smartphone users contract-billed by a carrier, higher monthly spending patterns follow: users spend an average of 1.5 more than feature phone users on their bills.

 Over 65 percent of smartphone owners use email and half are active social network users.

Perhaps most compelling is the fact that more than half (58%) of mobile Internet usage occurs in the home, virtually changing the way people shop and opening up new opportunities for advertisers.

Fifty-six percent of Germans react when receiving mobile advertising on their phone and more than one in five purchased the item advertised. ( THIS WAS A BIG SURPRISE)..

 “Mobile truly serves as the bridge between the online and the offline world,” explains David Gosen from Nielsen. “Mobile is empowering consumers to interact with stores, brands, friends and family in a way they never have done so before.”


More than 250 million active users currently access Facebook through their mobile devices and they are twice as active as non-mobile users.

 In Germany, nearly 50 percent of all smartphone users have used a social networking app in the last 30 days.

A mobile and social media strategy must go hand-in-hand (having a Facebook page is not enough). And proximity is influence. Location-based mobile alerts are impacting decisions to buy in a particular store.

 Creating a successful mobile strategy requires 4Cs:

  • Content – be engaging.
  • Conversation – create two-way dialogue
  • Community – connect through advocacy programs
  • Continuity – think long-term and on-going

 

Mobile is a big part of your customers lives – be a part of it. Build deep and more engaging personal dialogs – be where they are. Creativity and innovation differentiates your brand at every stage of their journey. Understand the real insight and behaviors of your mobile consumers to drive success.

SO THERE… ARE YOU MOBILE YET ?

OCCUPY WALL STREET APP:I’m getting arrested for ANDROID SMARTPHONES

I’m getting arrested- OWS – the APP

Android developer Jason Van Anden designed an app for protesters participating in OWS (Occupy Wall Street) protests.YAAY Jason..

This app called “I’m getting arrested” works with the idea that participants in the protests weigh the possibility that he or she may be arrested.

The “I’m Getting Arrested” Android app has an easy setup:

After being setup with one push on the keypad, the program automatically alerts family, friends, attorneys, Facebook and Twitter.

LET PEOPLE KNOW – WE WORRY ABOUT YOU-and our poor poor country:

What has our indifference wrought? We elected  a preponderance of “legal” thieves- economic traitors and con artists..

Newton Iowa : Whirlpool Corporation Would Make Norman Rockwell Weep

The economic death  of a town; that is what has  been wrought by the Whirlpool Corporation of Newton Iowa and their astounding – shocking level of greed.

Billions in profit were not enough- they wanted  MORE  to achieve an arbitrary profit goal to boot a stock price.

AND chose to lay off 5000 America  workers and ship the jobs offshore. 

Newton Iowa, former home to Maytag- peopled by good Americans whose very fabric  of life has been destroyed by unprecedented  avarice .

 Whirlpool Corporation- you are an economic Benedict Arnold.

Your greed- and the greed of so many corporate traitors  like you-, will destroy our country far more quickly and profoundly than any Soviet missile  …I hope you are proud of how you have  served your country…

 

Norman Rockwell would hang his head in despair and shame that you are a fellow citizen – and that you have so mishandled and wasted your gift  of making your community thrive and grow.   

 

Thank you Palm Beach Post for such a timely article.

Although this particular case is from Florida,  this same tragic scenario is being rewritten daily through our great Nation under Bailout . The digital divide is growing daily- hourly- with each click of our collective mice.

Although the 50 plus age community is highly represented  ( or NEVER counted as they are invisible)

in this struggling group, the newly poor – the foreclosed, homeless and jobless are in the same hopeless situation.

When I created APPSNEWBIE, I strongly felt that this  ” technological underclass”  was  a sad byproduct  we would see and I HOPED ( silly Pollyanna me ) that as a moral a society, we l find it  of value to provide education- access and services to the desperately in need .Silly Appsnewbie. 

 You cannot even apply for a job without  a computer.

But you lost your house -foreclosure  AND you pawned your laptop so you could eat.Or buy your diabetes medication

You are living in a car and the libraries and workforce shops have limited computer usage times-;

Those public computers also have firewalls so all job sites are not usable-and you cannot type that fast 

Plus the public computers they have are slow- hey -

the billionaire computer vendor who had that government t contract that sold the computers palmed off his second rate stuff- no sweat  -

After all- his/her  pal was sure he got the bid…

WHEN DO BILLIONAIRE APPLE and MICROSOFT START TO REALLY PROVIDE PUBLIC COMPUTERS and TRAINING-

THAT MAKE PEOPLE EMPLOYABLE? NOT JUST DATA ENTRY ?

WHERE and WHEN?

Seniors  Without Computers Struggle to Apply for Food Stamps, Medicaid benefits

 

Philip Proulx knew just enough about computers to check guests in at an apartment building in Palm Beach, where he worked as a doorman for several years.

Proulx, 77, was laid off recently and realized his $735 monthly Social Security check would not cover his expenses. His only hope was applying for food stamps and cash assistance.

Proulx said he tried calling the state Department of Children and Families’ toll-free number to apply over the phone, but a recorded message kept telling him to call back because of high call volumes.

He asked for help at several community organizations but was told he could apply for government aid only through the Internet. Proulx said he had no idea how to even get to the DCF website, much less find the application and submit it online.

Proulx’s quandary is not isolated, according to officials at local community agencies. Elderly and disabled residents or those without computer skills or access to an Internet connection, often struggle to get help to obtain food stamps and Medicaid assistance, the officials say.

“If they have no computer skills, they cannot apply on their own,” said Lela Jordan, director of Vickers House in West Palm Beach. “Many people who need food stamps and Medicaid face barriers to even apply because of their lack of computer skills.”

“If you are computer-ignorant, that’s too bad,” Proulx said. “You’ve got to find out how to do it on your own.”

He eventually found help at Vickers House and applied for food stamps and cash assistance online. But before he did, he said, “I’ve never been so confused in my life.”

DCF says about 90 percent of food stamp recipients apply online – an indicator that most have access to computers. But DCF spokesman Joe Follick said, “we do understand the frustration” of those who struggle with the online application process or busy phone lines.

DCF does not keep track of the number of complaints about the online application process since calls come in from regional and circuit offices, call centers and even the governor’s office.

But Follick said the department is aware of the problems and determined to fix them: “It’s our number one priority.”

DCF’s manpower has remained largely the same over the past five years, even though requests for food stamps have more than tripled, Follick said.

Even DCF Secretary David Wilkins, in a memo to employees of the department’s online system, called Access, said improvements must be made to ease the application process and make more operators available for callers.

“Employees, the millions of clients they help and all Floridians deserve a system that is efficient and minimizes the delay and frustration that are already heightened when families face difficult situations,” Wilkins wrote.

This year, DCF hired a new economic self-sufficiency director and has hired 60 employees for its call centers, Wilkins said.

Simple requests, such as how to reset passwords for online access, are being diverted to a group of operators to reduce wait times on the toll-free number, and the process will eventually be automated, Wilkins said. The department also plans to make its website easier to navigate.

Meanwhile, problems remain.

At Christians Reaching Out to Society Ministries, or C.R.O.S. Ministries, in Lake Worth, Director Pam Cahoon said many of her clients find it impossible to reach DCF to apply for benefits.

She said those without computers can sometimes use public library machines, but most libraries enforce time limits on computers.

“Unless you are really fast with the computer, you can’t get through,” Cahoon said. “It’s just absolutely horrible.”

At C.R.O.S., the demand for help filling out food stamp applications online is so high that the organization and DCF are splitting the cost of two workers dedicated to helping people apply and interview for government aid, Cahoon said.

“It’s just virtually impossible to get through on the phone,” she said.

Driving While Texting (DWT): FOR THOSE YOU LOVE: DON’T

Please paste this in your browser.

http://youtu.be/505k3YCc7Bw

Driving While Texting (DWT)

DWT is the new Drunk Driver of the  American  highways. 

 Researchers in one study demonstrated that driving while texting was twice as dangerous as driving while talking on the phone, a practice which has been shown to be as dangerous as driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08.

This is the general threshold for intoxicated driving.

 A separate report found that texting and driving is MORE dangerous than drunken driving. It has also been shown that texting is more dangerous than listening, dialing, talking or reaching for a device.

Why IS DWT Dangerous?

Using a communication device, for any purpose, can be distracting and dangerous.

According to scientists, the brain has a very difficult time processing different information streams. As a result, drivers who are concentrating on eating, dealing with children or changing the radio station — let alone typing a message or having a heated argument with their spouse — have difficulty focusing on the task at hand and reacting to road conditions.

 

Though driving while texting is a problem among most age groups, it is a bigger problem among teens. As a result, many states prohibit minors from using cell phones for any purpose while driving.

In the United States Congress, legislation has been proposed that would prohibit drivers nationwide, of all ages, from sending emails or text messages while driving.

Driver distraction is one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents. One of the fastest growing and most problematic of driver distractions is text messaging.

Numerous studies in recent years have linked auto accidents to text messaging and cell phone use. In response, in January of 2009 the National Safety Council urged state and federal lawmakers to ban the use of cell phones and other text-messaging devices while driving.

Since then, 14 states plus the District of Columbia have banned texting while driving, and several U.S. senators have united behind a bill that would ban driving while texting (DWT) nationwide.

Texting while driving is extremely dangerous, as well as negligent.

ARE YOU GUILTY?

DEATH BY TEXT; CLOSE CALL FOR A DISTRACTED DRIVER

 

As I was making my oft mentioned and recent- Appsnewbie Florida to Minneapolis Minnesota solo driving road trip I was a mapquest junkie.

Driving directions -paper in hand- my eyes were darting between the Mapquest paper – the road –signs-Traffic – I was on anxious red  full alert.

 I found myself  in a little town right next to the Interstate to get gas, carbohydrates and to potty.

What I was really hoping for was a Starbucks.

As my vision wandered, eyes darting -I was nearing a stop sign, but as I looked up this street-and I was still going at 35 to 40 miles per hour- I suddenly realized a young boy was  

 STOPPED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME ON HIS BIKE AT THE FOUR WAY STOP. I WAS GOING TO HIT HIM,

I WAS SO DISTRACTED LOOKING FOR A STARBUCKS THAT I DID NOT SEE

HIM UNTIL I WAS RIGHT ON TOP OF HIM AND HIS BICYCLE.

 

I stood on my Cadillac brakes with everything I had, and I managed to stop about 1 foot just short of hitting dead him on in the rear. He would have simply  flown in the air right out in the intersection . Maimed or dead.Hit buy over 4000 pounds of steel travelling at a legal- but lethal  35-40 miles perhour. 

Totally my fault due to distraction.

And I would have killed him. It came upon me so fast –just suddenly –there was this boy RIGHT in front of my moving car—GOD.

Thank you God, for holding BOTH of in your arms. 

The boy blissfully  drove off –none the wiser –but I shook- my heart was  pounding and – I thanked God that a life changing tragedy was averted – BUT could have been caused by me- a sober- but distracted driver.

Imagine if I had been texting
