In the case study, the client discussed how the launch of a mobile optimized website at the end of 2010 has impacted their business.By using the Mobile Analytics provided by the Adobe Online Marketing Suite, the following key insights were received:

  • CPW leveraged the Adobe Online Marketing Suite to measure “click-to-call” activities from mobile phones and correlate them with completed calls to the sales call center.Specifically, the first version of the mobile site did not provide e-commerce capability.Consequently, if a consumer is interested in purchasing a mobile phone, they can choose the “click-to-call” function from the product details page to reach the call center and complete the order.  CPW has seen conversion rates of up to 30% from this capability.
  • CPW has also discovered that it can easily drive the number of visitors to its mobile-optimized site by spending on mobile advertising. The company can launch a statistically significant mobile display or search campaign for its mobile site for significantly lower investment levels than on the desktop.
  • CPW learned that online visitors behave differently when they are using a mobile device. Because keying in information is harder, users make more spelling errors and enter fewer search terms.
