1 Mobile: Mobile Marketing Agility without an SDK Copywright All rights reserved.
2 Why Mobile Marketing Agility? Marketers seek mobile marketing solutions in order to drive engagement, loyalty, and conversion by: Unifying customer data across digital touch points, including mobile apps Testing and optimizing mobile experiences Personalizing mobile content Mobile increased our mobile agility, from quick app updates to on-the-fly app customization. Many marketers look to a tag management system (TMS) to extend analytics to mobile apps, but the most effective marketers also extend optimization, personalization, and other high-impact digital marketing technologies to mobile apps. The right TMS can not only extend your entire digital marketing strategy to apps, but can boost mobile marketing agility, with the power to adapt to changes in real-time. Page 2 Page 3
3 SDKs Slow Down Mobile Marketing Agility Manage is the only TMS that delivers mobile marketing agility in real-time, without requiring an SDK. The no-sdk approach allows marketers to unify all customer insights, including data from mobile apps, within a single data layer while letting marketers make changes to their tagging, their digital applications, and their mobile strategies in real-time. What is an SDK? SDK APPROACH SDK Approach 1 Marketers pre-determine all app elements they want to tag. 2 An SDK ( software development kit ) is a programming package that enables mobile developers to tie in 3rd party technology into their mobile applications. Implementing an SDK can be a time consuming process, and is rigid by nature. Mobile app developers hard code the tagging and recompile the app. 3 Mobile app developers submit the recompiled app to the app store. Once an SDK is complied, changes to the code or any configurations regarding the technology must be completed by the mobile app developer. The changes are then compiled, and the mobile app is put through the app store review 4 Marketers wait for the new app to be approved into the store. process. Once accepted into the app store, users of the mobile application must re-install or update the version of the app before the changes take effect. s no-sdk approach eliminates the wait, allowing marketers to tag instantly. ENSIGHTEN S NO-SDK APPROACH s No-SDK Approach 1 Mobile app developers implement the Mobile library. this process takes 15 minutes When a TMS relies on an SDK to extend tagging and optimization to mobile apps, marketers must wait for: 2 Marketers use a visual interface to select which app elements they want to tag. Mobile app developers to revise the app The app store to approve the resubmitted changes Consumers to download the revised app Repeat steps Marketers identify a tagging change they want to make. repeat step 2 VISUAL INTERFACE With an SDK approach, the slightest tag change can take months to take effect. With Mobile, included with Manage, the change is instant. 6 Marketers identify a tagging change they want to make. 5 Marketers wait for users to download the new version of the app. 3 tags update in real time Tagging takes effect immediately.

6 Unlimited Optimization Elements Better Optimization Agility Multi-Platform App Support Third Party SDK Support Comprehensive Data Activation Marketers can perform multivariate testing and targeting with both native and non-native app elements (such as content blocks, images, buttons, and colors). Marketers are limited to testing and targeting native app elements only. Marketers can quickly and easily create new in-app multi-variate tests and targets, and then quickly roll winning test content into their mobile app. This content can be used to build future tests. Multi-variate testing and targeting elements must be hard-coded into the SDK. This makes it difficult and time-consuming to deploy winning test content within the app as well as to leverage testing and targeting for apps on an iterative and ongoing basis. provides support for Android, ios and WP8 apps. Provide support for Android and ios apps only. While Mobile itself is not reliant on an SDK, Mobile is compatible with any SDK. This means you can easily use third party SDKs for analytics tools, conversion systems, in-app ad displays, etc., within Mobile. Other mobile offerings are compatible only with their own SDK. This creates vendor lock-in and limits the flexibility of marketers to use best of breed solutions. unifies data from all channels and touch points, including mobile apps, the Web, and offsite and offline channels allowing marketers to own and act on all customer data. This enables delivery of a 1:1 experience across all channels. Other mobile offerings can unify some mobile app data with Web data, but are unable to stitch entire customer profiles that would allow full customer data ownership or the ability to deliver a 1:1 experience across all channels.
