Emerging Media Morning Forum | The Last Marketing Mile: The Battle for the Mobile 24-Hour Customer

The “last mile” is a telecom term for installing the final wire connection to the customer. It is considered the most critical, but also the most difficult connection. Similarly, businesses are establishing the final marketing mile to the customer through mobile technology. Yet this critical link is proving to be difficult. Today’s always-connected customers suffer from information overload and distraction. Technology connects us in so many ways, but also adds to the fray.

Ultimately, there are 16 waking hours of attention. The last marketing mile presents a cornucopia of opportunities to redefine consumer relationships, and enable competitive advantage.

We will review

  • Competitive dynamics of the last marketing mile
  • Multitasking behavior in three-screen environments (TV, mobile, PC).
  • Why awareness, preference, consideration cycles are obsolete
  • Mobile case studies: Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, P&G, Nike and others
