Nokia acquired mobile advertising leader, Enpocket, in October 2007 and continues to leverage Enpocketís ground-breaking analytics technology to optimize campaigns, improve conversions, and measure campaign performance across the network, allowing the company to provide mobile advertising solutions to some of the biggest brand advertisers around the world.
ďNokia is different from other companies as it has the Nokia Media Network that works with mobile operators and publishers, and a marketing group that works primarily with brands,Ē says Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Vikrant Gandhi. ďIn mobile marketing, operators are sellers who use Nokia Interactive to sell, serve, measure and optimize their inventory.Ē
Nokia enables advertisers to place ads on publisher and operator mobile Web pages, as well as Nokia properties, representing a global consumer reach of more than 100 million mobile consumers. As part of the turn-key service for advertisers, the award-winning mobile marketing team from Nokia creates mobile campaigns for hundreds of top brands.
ďWeíre pleased to accept this Award from Frost & Sullivan,Ē said Mike Baker, VP and head of Nokia Interactive. ďWe are committed to building a mobile advertising ecosystem that provides advertisers with a high-performing and measurable medium for reaching their target audience while ensuring a relevant and respectful advertising experience for consumers.Ē
The company also ensures a local presence in the major geographic markets for an effective and faster communication with its major customers.
ďNokia continues to drive innovation in the U.S. mobile advertising industry and remains the preferred partner of mobile operators, advertisers and content publishers,Ē notes Gandhi. ďThe company believes in helping brands achieve the end objective of driving sales by offering integrated end-to-end mobile advertising solutions and spends a lot of time with the media buyers to understand their core requirements.Ē
