What Can Your Phone Do For You?

The "normal" shopping experience isn't very "normal" anymore, because of smart phones. Nielsen estimates that by the 2011 holidays, 50% of the US will own a Smartphone.

Mobile shopping is a $2.2 billion industry and has plenty of room for growth. However, mobile shopping has its limits. Shoppers still "go retail" when purchasing large ticket items such as appliances.

How do you know if your business should go mobile? Read this HUB article by William Rosen of ARC Worldwide to see if the "app" applies to your company http://bit.ly/gahfzL

Radio Raises Banner in Digital Revolution

Social connections bond radio stations with consumers.  Clear Channel Chairman Bob Pittman spoke recently at an Ad Age Digital Conference, emphasizing that radio is America's companion.

Citing research from Edison and Arbitron, Pittman noted that Americans, on average, spend 2.1 hours a day with radio. Pittman also said that radio has a social and emotional connection to listeners.

Because of these close ties, radio presents the perfect opportunity to supply listeners with more than just a listening experience.

Radio listenership is up. Radio posted an increase of 2.1 million listeners last year (2010) as compared to 2009.

On average, 241.6 million listeners tune in to conventional radio each week. Arbitron's annual study found that radio's listenership had grown almost 5% since 2005. Some of radio's appeal is based on its ability to change quickly.
