Depsite the fact that mobile keeps chipping away at digital ad budgets, zeroing in on a few stellar examples of brands that are nailing smartphone and tablet-based marketing can be tough. Sure, Walmart seems ahead of the game with an app that saves shoppers money. And Starbucks is raking in about 15 percent of U.S. sales through its mobile payment app, while Taco Bell works Snapchat like a pro.
But what other marketers are winning with mobile? To find out, we asked a handful of attendees at this week's Mobile Media Summit in San Francisco which brand (besides their own, of course) is killing it in the space.
One of the more interesting answers? Intuit. The financial software company may seem like a strange pick when compared to the likes of Uber or Apple, but indeed, the brand has transitioned a business that relied on desktops to a line of cross-screen services.
