This chapter examines one of nine critical forces behind purchase decisions that make mobile advertising so powerful: time. It addresses questions such as: How can advertisers use time to their advantage to reach their target audience? Now that smartphones give advertisers the opportunity to reach an individual consumer in real time, what is the secret to getting the timing and the ad right? What is the best way to deliver a timely advertisement that will trigger a positive response? The chapter discusses advertising effectiveness based on time of day, advertising effectiveness based on day of the week, effectiveness of coupon redemption windows, the relationship between redemption windows and geography, and mobile advertising and its effect on different stages of the purchase funnel.

Keywords:   time, mobile economy, mobile advertising, marketing, consumer behavior, advertising effectiveness, coupon redemption, purchase funnel
