Digital publishing on mobile devices has all it takes to dominate the tactics utilized in native content marketing activities. What’s more digital publishing on mobile platforms combines three of the most efficient content marketing tactics that I am going to describe.
These are journalism, creating “white papers” (that is, sharing specialist knowledge), as well as activities on mobile platforms.
Moreover, the market is already sufficiently saturated with mobile devices, and the next generations of users do not part with their smartphones and tablets.
What is more, users perceive them in terms of a natural means of communication, and not as an addition.
For example, one in five millennials in the US connects with the Internet only via mobile devices. And according to CISCO mobile traffic will continue to rise.
