Did you know? Australia is one of the leading global adapters of smartphone use in the world – 88% of all Australians now own a smartphone.

I don’t need to explain further that mobile traffic is increasing day by day, week by week and month by month. So, how can we take advantage of this, how do we make sure that people buy your products via their smartphones?

Digital Gorillas has put a lot of effort into this, and we have seen distinct results when certain factors have been put together.

Here is one of the client we worked with:

  • They should not have to fill their account details. A common theme when it comes to mobile transactions is that people might be hesitant to buy via their credit card. Maybe they’re in the train on their way to work, then they rather wait until they are in a more stable environment. The customer that was very likely to convert got distracted and now your

Messaging Apps: Engaging versus Intrusive Marketing
