Hispanic-Americans, Mobile Advertising and Mobile Services

The literature on marketing to Hispanics and the use of mobile-based marketing methods continues to grow. However, to our knowledge, no research has been published on Hispanic use and acceptance of mobile marketing channels; this research addresses that gap. The study investigates various aspects of mobile channel services including advertising among Hispanic-Americans and non-Hispanic-Americans.

The effects of product involvement and impulse buying on purchase intentions in mobile text advertising

The purpose of this article is to describe how consumers respond to SMS advertisements for different product categories. Simulated field experiment (N =736).

Rational VS Emotional Content in Mobile Advertising

Advertising tries to find its place in the new consumer-centered paradigm for media communication. Consumers no longer are a uniform group, passive and powerless. Mobile technology has set some specific conditions that determine this particular sender-receiver relationship. In this context, there is a need for evidence about the effectiveness of traditional advertising strategies in this rather new channel. This study explores the relationship between the relevance of rational or emotional mobile advertising contents and the product's target cognitive and affective attitude components.

Privacy preserving and transactional advertising for mobile services

The many sensors embedded in phones nowadays provide advanced sensing capabilities that make it possible to capture real-time information about the user and his surroundings. There are already examples of apps/services that use this information to provide highly useful and contextual advertisements to the users. However, users are still reluctant to share their personal data with advertisers due to their privacy implications (if misused). In this work, we provide protocols that allow users to store their sensor data on third party (untrusted) cloud servers.

The data was collected from 340 students attending a southwestern US university.

Mobile age provides marketing bonanza: But there are pitfalls as well as opportunities

Astute observers of film and television dramas made during the last two decades can probably date them fairly precisely according to the number (and perhaps size) of mobile phones being used. Few consumer products have become as globally accepted and (for the most part) embraced as warmly in such a short period of time. Most consumers - not just teenagers and twenty-somethings - would not want to be without them. Only the most perversely stubborn Luddites would refuse to acknowledge that they are pretty useful.
