So just what sort of mobile marketing statistics are we talking about?

What about the breakdown of average media consumption for one individual per day? Depending on the region you are in, the mobile statistics suggest that roughly 7 hours of content is viewed. 1.5 hours on TV, 1.6 hours on PC, 1.8 hours on mobile and another 2.1 which can be classified as 'other'. What about the global use of mobile as a primary or exclusive internet source from consumers searching for products or services? Our mobile marketing statistics suggest that number is now at 60% and only trending upwards.

Average open rate of an SMS... 95%, and the average time it takes for this content to be viewed and assessed? Just 3 minutes from start to finish.

That's a fairly large jump in data traffic and engagement if we do say so with the trend not looking likely to slow down anytime soon.
