A marketer’s challenge is to get consumers to pay attention to them without sticking an ad in the middle of their mobile screens that might turn them off. Take a walk in any neighborhood and you’ll see why. People are wandering about, heads down, eyes glued to their phones, earbuds playing Spotify.
