Thanks to all the MobileMonday-Miami fans who turned out for our October event. The speakers were amazing and we learned a lot about mobile payments.
The topic for the November 7, 2011 meeting will be Mobile Coupons. In this not-so-hot economy, people are looking for ways to save money, and retailers large and small are giving consumers a reason to turn to their mobile phone to find a solution. The dizzying array of mobile money-saving options has been increasing exponentially: text messages, apps, daily deals. With more than 42%of smartphone owners using mobile coupons, this is an opportunity that can’t be ignored. Our November event will feature leaders in the mobile deals space to talk about what’s hot and what’s not, and where they think the industry is going.
Our panel, which will be moderated by MobileMonday-Miami, will include:
