Did you know? Mobile internet access using smartphones and tablets has nearly doubled the amount of time spent online since 2010. In 2012, Marketers spent $4.4 billion on mobile advertising in the U.S. And in 2013 that figure doubled to $8.5 million. Projections are that Marketers will spend close to $31.1 billion by 2017. Search advertising accounts for about half of the total. Mobile ads perform 4-5 times better than online ads. These and other statistics are qualified reasons to get on board the mobile marketing bandwagon.
