MarketingBeyond Moves to MobileBeyond

There's a bit of deja vu here. I wrote most of these posts for mobile telephone marketing when I was also writing MarketingBeyond on TypePad. Now that I'm mostly writing about mobile and media on MobileBeyond, it's a bit insane.

In any case, I invite everyone interested in mobile, wireless, media, marketing and technology to our new MobileBeyond Facebook page. Lots of fun and great info and interaction. See you soon. Brian Prows.

Listen to Herman Heunis of MXit talk about the fastest growing mobile service in South Africa. Only on MobileBeyond.

Is Advertising Necessary?

Mobile advertising continues its relentless growth, while Internet revenues are falling. As with print advertisers, especially newspapers, that continue losing revenue to online placement, the community of mobile advertisers, mobile ad networks and mobile publishers is dominating worldwide advertising. So much for mobile.

But this post goes beyond mobile ads. It’s about the necessity of any advertising. Periodically, we should expose our minds to opposing opinions and views that contradict–and even imperil–our business models.

Such is the case with Eric Clemons at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Clemons just posted an article (available in PDF form) on TechCrunch. His predictions about the demise of PC-based Internet advertising and his comments on social media and mobile ad personalization are controversial with a grain of truth and 100 grains of speculation and flabbergast.

Clemons generally opposes advertising “pushed” to potential customers who haven’t requested the ads. He believes that Internet and other advertising is similar to email spam and non-participatory, shatters the Internet experience and will ultimately fail. In Clemons view, pushing ad messages to people not seeking them is a grave sin.
