Is your business mobile ready? Take the test.

The Mobile Marketing Readiness Survey was created by Michael Becker, from mCordis. He shares it as part of the upcoming textbook on Mobile Marketing.

We’d like to see you take the survey, and then analyze your own personal results. You can score this as you feel is appropriate for your level of experience.
This is a tool that will help you to achieve your goals, and sets the expectations in advance of your work in Mobile Marketing.

iv) have a dedicated mobile product team.

You can also send this survey to your partners and co-workers to assess their level of technology adoption. If you find that the majority of your answers are “Not Using, Use Rarely, Occasionally or Don’t Know,” then you have some work to do. If you find that the majority of the items are in the “Use Often” and “Critical to Our Efforts” columns, then you are heading toward success faster than others. Reading the upcoming textbook will help you understand your mobile marketing readiness levels and how to improve them.
