“Con­sumers world­wide love their mo­bile phones. Mo­bile de­vices are an ex­ten­sion of the self, as both mind and body. Mo­bile is a global shop­per life­style,” ex­plained Janet Rose, PHD, SVP di­rec­tor of re­tail strate­gic planning at Draft­fcb. “Mo­bile is of­ten the first choice meta-re­tailer.”

“This has huge im­pli­ca­tions for both brands and re­tail­ers,” said global chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer of Draft­fcb, who com­mis­sioned the study. “It means that re­tail­ers must step for­ward even more to de­liver creative and sat­is­fy­ing multi-chan­nel ex­pe­ri­ences. And, it means that brands have new op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­gage con­sumers in big ideas throughout the pur­chase jour­ney.”
