The MMA is meeting this week. From the world of Coke, Tom Daly reflects on mobile marketing.
From the press release:
“Today, mobile spend by brand marketers is in the trial stages. Before allocating more budgets to mobile, brands require a deeper understanding of the role of mobile in the overall mix, consumer acceptance of brand messaging, consistent guidelines and best practices as well as insight into effectiveness and value. Under guidance of the MMA GMC, the industry will create a framework for the measurement of mobile marketing campaigns across all channels such as mobile video, television, multimedia services and more.
“The MMA is the right organization to lead the development of ad currencies against its current guidelines, given its diverse and representative membership base,” said Tom Daly, group manager, Strategy & Planning, Global Interactive Marketing, The Coca-Cola Company and MMA Global and NA Board Executive Committee member. “The Coca-Cola Company is committed to mobile as a viable channel to our consumer and measurement will help us ensure the investment is allocated in the right place.”
