With the introduction of more-powerful and inexpensive smartphones, mobile carriers are taking steps toward making location-based services a common mobile application for consumers. What are the implications for marketers?
The Mobile Location-Based Services report analyzes how location-based services are evolving into a standard part of the mobile marketing mix. Marketers have been interested in potential applications of location-based services since they first made their way into the public eye in 1999, but privacy concerns have hovered in the background.
