Along with Interop and Contingency Planning & Management 2011 West in Vegas, we are also looking to the west for the frontier this week. Not the one where little doggies get along, but the ever closer mobile customer movement. Everyday people are added to the smartphone craze. They turn on apps that know where they are, what they like …and present a growing opportunity to offer them deals. People are happy to tell you a $400 phone just saved them $.99 on a burrito. Good for them.
Josh Schiffman is on this week to prep business owners on what people are doing with those phones and connected devices, what they are looking for, and ways to identify if this is a strategy for your business to pursue.
