    Mobile Marketing"Everyone’s been preaching the importance of having a robust mobile marketing strategy for the past seven years or so, and although we all know this, a lot of us still decided to put mobile on the backburner. Now that 'Mobilegeddon' is upon us, and Google is constantly telling us how important mobile 'micro-moments' are, marketers are being forced to act — 2015 could turn out to be the actual 'year of mobile,'" said SMX Speaker and WordStream Content Marketing Specialist Margot da Cunha.

    When SMX Advanced hits Seattle next month (June 2-4), mobile-friendliness will be addressed from every angle. Da Cunha will take the stage alongside Lisa Williams and Phoebe Hanley in "Converting the Mobile Visitor." They will discuss the best ways to attract and convert mobile users, and share strategies on text ads, display ads, click-to-call offers, targeting by device and location, and demographic research. Today, da Cunha gives us a sneak peak of what's to come in her SMX presentation!
