Over the past year we’ve talked to hundreds of CMOs, agency executives and other marketing decision makers about mobile and we’ve seen a shift in the conversation: businesses and agencies are no longer asking “Why mobile?” With half of all Americans now owning a smartphone, the necessity for brands to be involved in the mobile space is clear. Today, we are increasingly hearing questions from executives related to the “How?” of investing in mobile. That’s why we are launching a new resource designed to offer our perspective on how to strategically approach mobile called “The Mobile Playbook”. On April 25th we will be hosting a live streamed discussion with an incredible panel of mobile thought leaders talking about how to strategically approach mobile including:

  • Joao Machado - Director of Mobile, OMD
  • Michelle Ogle - Digital Marketing and Affiliate Strategy Manager, Starwood Hotels and Resorts
  • Joshua Palau - VP of Digital Sales and Marketing, Comcast
  • Amit Shah - Director of Online, Mobile and Social Media, 1-800Flowers.com
Tune in to the Think with Google Google+ page on Wednesday April 25th at 3pm EDT/ 12pm PDT to learn how mobile can help businesses and agencies win the moments that matter, make better decisions, and go bigger, faster. These panelists have all been early movers in the mobile space and we’ll be discussing their perspective on the 5 key questions we feature in The Mobile Playbook that every business executive should be asking today in order to win with mobile. We hope you’ll be there. If you have a question for the panel, leave your questions with #playbookpanel as a comment on our hangout announcement post the Think with Google Google+ page.
