In fact, Forrester forecasts that the number of mobile Internet users will grow at an average of 9% year over year for the next five years. In response to this growth, nearly half of the interactive marketers Forrester’s surveyed told Forrester’s that they planned to increase their mobile marketing budgets in 2011.To make the most of these budgets, interactive marketers are turning to digital agencies to create comprehensive and strategic mobile marketing programs that move their brands beyond experimentation and engage their mobile consumers effectively.
In Forrester’s 37-criteria evaluation of US digital agencies with mobile marketing services, it identified the nine significant agencies in this category and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report details Forrester’s findings about how each agency measures up and plots where they stand in relation to each other, to help interactive marketers select the right partner for their mobile marketing efforts.
“Client references figured very heavily into our evaluation and each of the Leaders can boast strong client approval,” said Forrester’s Research. “Lauded for both their strategic thinking and execution skills, these Leaders produce high-caliber work with client satisfaction to match.”
