Mobile Bonanza?

Posted on | July 18, 2011 | 1 Comment

Have you seen this headline?

Worldwide mobile advertising revenue forecast to reach $3.3 billion in 2011

The numbers are pretty amazing and if they are anywhere near target wow!

My question goes back to education.

Are our business schools, IT Colleges and Communication schools onto this idea?

Worldwide mobile advertising revenue is forecast to reach $3.3 billion in 2011, more than double the $1.6 billion generated in 2010, according to Gartner, Inc. Worldwide revenue will reach $20.6 billion by 2015, but not all types of mobile advertising will generate the same opportunity. Search and maps will deliver the highest revenue, while video/audio ads will see the fastest growth through 2015.

Here is a chart that comes from this worth reading article.

What is for sure the landscape of media, advertising and PR is in a very clear transition and this is happening fast.

The question is who can keep up?

Or if you don’t keep up with the media transition what future do you have?
