In terms of establishing routine testing practices, 59% of respondents indicated they routinely, or somewhat routinely, adhered to the tried-and-true practice of maintaining annual benchmark reports. However, just 43% said their companies routinely, or somewhat routinely, utilize a specific testing methodology.

Despite the rapid growth of mobile as a primary communications tool for businesses and consumers alike, just more than half (51%) of respondents indicated they regularly brainstormed challenges and opportunities within this burgeoning channel.

Further in the 2012 Mobile Marketing Benchmark Report, when asked about their companies' testing of specific mobile campaign elements, the landing page was the predominant selection, followed closely by mobile device and target audience.

Points to Consider
