A post from mobileStorm CEO, Jared Reitzin
4 years ago when I bought mobilemarketingwatch.com (aka MMW) I wanted to give something back to the mobile community. I employed writers to write about anything they wanted as long as it provided businesses with news and information that would help their business grow. As consumers move to a smartphone-based society, businesses have to expand their knowledge about mobile and the many ways they can engage with their customers. Whether you’re a marketer trying to drive someone to make a purchase or a healthcare plan trying to keep your customers healthy to save money, mobile is the platform of choice for reaching your customers and influencing their behavior.
MMW started out as more of a hobby but the site quickly grew into not just the top mobile marketing blog in the U.S., but at the time of this writing is currently the eighty sixth highest ranked “marketing blog” in the U.S. according to AdAge’s Power 150, which ranks the top blogs and bloggers in advertising, marketing and media. At mobileStorm we are heavily invested in the healthcare space, recently developing a proprietary HIPAA-compliant secure mobile messaging platform called AppMail.
