We identified three discussion points from the forum and some fresh new statistics to highlight the role of mobile use in the consumer path to purchase. All sources are from #mmaf2013.

Pervasiveness of mobile:

  • 91% of smartphone users have their phone within reach 24/7

  • We check our phones every 6.5 minutes (150 times daily)

Mobile Commerce

  • Mobile-assisted grocery shoppers buy 8% more
  • Home Depot’s sales from mobile are projected to exceed $650M by 2016
  • 10% of all Starbucks transactions are now done on a mobile device
