How to adopt a Mobile First Marketing Strategy

Stay abreast of customer habits by putting 'mobile first'.

As the time we spend on the web increasingly shifts away from desktops and laptops to mobile devices, brands need to address the specific requirements of the mobile user.

This course will show you how to look at mobile as an essential element to be integrated into overall digital marketing campaigns.

We’ll be looking at what it means to go ‘mobile first’ and explore how you can make the mobile user the primary focus of any strategy.

You'll understand how web design and development trends adapt to mobile-first best practice in digital marketing and how you can make sure your campaigns offer the best possible user experience on mobile.

All of our .Courses are guided by the people who are taking part, be sure to tell us all about yourself and your ideal objectives beforehand and we'll tailor your digital marketing session to you (and your fellow attendees) as much as possible.
