Mobile Advertising is affordable effective & increasingly popular.  

 “An increase in advertising spending on the mobile sector has followed greater smartphone penetration among users, with smartphones and tablets becoming the primary device for many consumers. The digital economy began to take hold a decade or so ago, and some organisations were fast to react to it. The naysayers saw the impact of the internet on their business as a fad that would soon fade away. The digital economy is here to stay and those who fail to participate will become the road-kill on this superhighway.  One of the real threats to traditional business is that those who are embracing the digital economy have a real chance to grow their business faster and thus widen the gap between the winners and the losers.(Taken from an article ‘Australia – Digital Economy – Sector and Industry Transformation)
