For mobile advertising, orchestrate don’t dominate says Peggy Anne Salz
Her takeaway from the article is republished again below:
“Mobile advertising is at a critical juncture. Fortunately, the industry recognizes the need to speak the same language. Now it must begin to tackle the channel fragmentation, which stifles the development of effective campaigns, and prevents agencies and brands from achieving and demonstrating return on investment (ROI).
Gigafone’s approach shows that the industry not only needs to simplify the mobile advertising value chain; it underlines the preeminent importance of partnership. The end-game is about providing the planning and profiling capabilities that will allow advertisers to harness mobile to deliver the right ad to the right user and reduce wastage generated by blanket campaigns. Companies that form broad business ecosystems will most likely make it to the winner’s circle.”
While the article mentions Gigafone – one of my clients, Peggy’s industry view on mobile advertising and what needs to happen to cut through all of the jargon and hype and get things moving is essential reading if you are in this space.

Peggy also covers this topic on her msearchgroove site and says of her new RCR Wireless column
“This month I have chosen to examine the emerging mobile advertising ecosystem, and the advance of mobile advertising platforms that cleverly bring together a mix of companies to reduce channel fragmentation and provide the planning and profiling capabilities that will allow advertisers to harness mobile to deliver the right ad to the right user and reduce wastage generated by blanket campaigns. Gigafone was the first out of the gates, but I am sure there will be more to follow.”
