The term Agile Marketing is by no means a new one within the business world. The odds are that even if you aren't actively using an Agile approach to your business, you've heard of it in some way, shape, or form over the last few years. It was born in the world of software development, coming to life in IT departments as they worked quickly to address issues, test their methods, and weigh the results.
While it’s still unsure how Instagram’s latest like policy will change the face of influencer marketing, we think it’s safe the say that the marketing niche certainly won’t be going anywhere. So much so, that by 2020, influencer marketing is projected to be a $10 billion industry. That’s billion. With a “B.” With so much focus (and budget) on influencer marketing, you’d assume that most marketers can track what the ROI of their influencers are. But you know what they say about assumptions.
You might have asked why a marketing agency would dive so deeply into the changes of the mobile technology and the effects of the world we live in. The truth is, that we here at PRIME are constantly looking for connection, engagement, and community on behalf of our clients. There are a ton of ways the shift to mobile has changed the way we advertise, the way we find new business, and the way we share our lives both in a connective context and a social interactive context. We know that today's advancement will be tomorrows standard.
As we look to wrap up our series on how the mobile economy has rocked the socks off of our daily lives, today, we're talking about one that affects every human being on the planet. Here's a hint—it's green, made of a unique kind of paper, and if needed, in a pinch, can be used to play "Presidential Flashcards" for a few minutes... Today, we're talking about how the mobile economy has made for a complete makeover on the way we deal with money—how we spend it, how we save it, and how we trade it. Let's dive in.

With the introduction of mobile into every corner of our existence, nothing remains untouched by its influence.

The invention of the smartphone changed our working world as we know it, having our office always in our pocket. We are reachable at all times whether we like it or not. For better or worse, this has dramatically shifted our perception of communication with our coworkers, clients, and partners. We are connected and responsible in a way that continues to push the boundaries of traditional communications.
In light of this, 1500 word emails, meetings where people pile into a conference room, and back and forth phone calls are largely passé. Thanks to a host of disruptive apps in the market space, workplace communications have become more intuitive, ubiquitous, and more user-friendly than ever. Today we look at the apps that have had the most significant impact on how we communicate with each other at work, and the benefits they bring to your business.
