Mobile Trends 2019 – What Marketers Need to Know

Mobile marketing is one of the most rapidly changing areas in Communications and Advertising. From 5G connectivity to artificial intelligence to augmented reality, the possibilities are endless in helping marketers reach their target audiences in new, innovative and impactful ways.

With all of the major changes coming for the mobile industry in 2019 and beyond, it’s imperative to stay on top of the latest developments when planning your next marketing campaign.

The focus of any marketing strategy should be to cater to the major growth of consumers who use their smartphones & tablets as their preferred – and sometimes only – personal device.
