41 per cent of UK retail brands expect to have a transactional mobile site in the next year
94 per cent see mobile as a real opportunity for their business
59 per cent expect mobile revenues to increase in next 12 months
Whilst most retailers believe their mobile revenues will increase over the next few years, currently around 63% either make less than 1% of their total revenues via mobile, or donâ€™t measure their mobile revenues at all at present, citing a lack of knowledge and expertise about the mobile platform
Mobile internet sits at the heart of many of our customerâ€™s lives, and weâ€™ve invested significant resource to ensuring that their mobile experience is as straightforward and rewarding as possible. This research from AIME, the IAB and IMRG highlights how emerging mobile media looks set to play a much stronger role in UK commerce, and for us as retailers itâ€™s been essential to establish a solid mobile presence to fully complement the evolving customer journey.
