SMX: Mobile Apps & How They’re Revolutionizing Search

Attending SMX West this week? See Danielle Nohe, Director, Technology & Entertainment from Compete speak about mobile apps and how they’re revolutionizing search on March 9th at 10:45am PST.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is famous for saying “…on the desktop search is where it’s at; that’s where the money is. But on a mobile device search hasn’t happened. Search is not where it’s at, people are not searching on a mobile device like they do on the desktop.” Oh really? There are currently more than 200,000 apps for the iPhone and 100,000 and growing for Google’s Android – and many are built around search. This session looks at popular search apps on different devices, how they gather data and the new, away from the desktop opportunities they offer to marketers.

Danielle Nohe will present on how mobile apps are changing how consumers access information on local stores, dinner reservations, movie times, and maps/gps information.

During this presentation, you’ll gain insights on:

  • How Compete’s products help marketers increase online and offline marketing effectiveness based on online behaviors and survey responses from millions of consumers
  • How often smartphone users access information from their phones for information
  • How consumers use apps vs web browsers on their phones
