Email Will Become a Mobile-First Channel

Even now, over half of all emails are opened on mobile devices. That number can be expected to continue increasing, and as it does, email will switch from being computer-based to being mobile-based. Adapting email for mobile devices includes changes to the viewing screen and the ease of opening marketing links via email.

New Mobile Ad Formats Will Be Developed

One such format that may develop is 5-second video ads, rather than the 30-second varieties seen on YouTube, Facebook, and other platforms. Promoted Tweets on Twitter are easily adapted for mobile devices. And Pinterest will be launching advertising in 2014 and advertisers are keen to take advantage of its huge popularity.

Making your content ‘mobile-ready’ is an important part of any marketing strategy, particularly as more and more consumers access their email accounts on their smartphone or tablet.
