Why brands should go mobile-first for performance

Why brands should go mobile-first for performance

Our Managing Director, James Shepherd has been featured in Performance Marketing World, discussing the importance of brands adopting a mobile-first approach in order to achieve better performance.

James discussed how over the past few years, more ‘evolving traditional brands’ have looked to mobile as a route to market, and this has only accelerated since the outbreak of the pandemic: “It has become more pertinent in the past 18 months where brands have been decimated and are scrambling to move online”.

Looking at the benefits, James analyses how a mobile-first approach not only allows for companies to build stronger, lasting relationships with consumers, but it also allows for a more accurate understanding of the interactive behaviour and demands of these customers.

Summarising the importance of adopting a mobile-first approach, James referenced our work with energy firm EDF, and how M&C Saatchi Performance successfully transitioned the company. By creating an effective mobile-first marketing strategy, we helped switched their direction to digital, even turning off their TV spend.
