Get mobile with your marketing

Business and individuals interested in maximising opportunities through mobile technology are being encouraged to attend the south west’s first Mobile Marketing Conference, which will take place at the Eden project next Wednesday [12 October].

The Mobile Conference has an inspiring line up of seven industry experts including search engine specialists, social media strategists and award winning text marketing professionals.

The one day event has been organised by a group of business associates who want to provide an insight into the latest mobile technology and the opportunities mobile marketing present for businesses of all sizes. (see the full event programme below)

Research shows that by the end of this year 42% of people in the UK will own a Smartphone. Add to this the fact that 27% of all online purchases are now made using a mobile device and it is clear that mobile marketing is not something to be ignored.

The conference will provide delegates with practical advice on creating websites for mobiles, search engine optimisation, mobile advertising, SMS text, email for mobile, creating mobile content, social media and mcommerce.

Tickets for the one day event are priced at £100 (+vat) and are available to buy online at www.themobileconference.com, anyone wanting to learn more can email the event organisers at: delegates@lesw.co.uk or call 01872 888733.
