Through mobile marketing, marketers interact with consumers through a mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet. Mobile ads are displayed as text messages, images, video, audio, banner ads, coupons, and sponsored apps.

Consumers are now rarely without their mobile devices, which creates a unique opportunity to engage with them in new and different ways. For example, ads can be tailored to the consumer’s exact location, providing real-time notifications of sales and coupons for stores and restaurants nearby. Mobile ads can also allow consumers to click on an ad to respond directly or find additional information, empowering them with information at the precise moment they desire it.
