Goin' Mobile

Goin' Mobile - Executive Summary

Goin' MobileMobile has emerged as the new mass distribution medium, with more than four billion mobile devices worldwide—topping televisions, radios, and personal computers.

This study is a result of Arbitron’s interest in assessing how consumers perceive and use smartphones and attendant technologies.

Goin' Mobile - To Do List

Since the presentation, we have heard from several programmers about our “Texting While Driving” segment. When we were conducting the interviews, a number of respondents mentioned Oprah Winfrey’s “No Phone Zone Pledge.” It resonated in several of these interviews, and for attendees at “The Radio Show.”

It provides an opportunity for a 7th action step on the above “To-Do List” – creating your own localized version of this campaign, utilizing the power of a morning show or a personality who can make this type of initiative personal and genuine.
