Mobile Saturday: Loyalty in the Pocket

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Saturday 9th March, 2013

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Loyalty in the pocket - Why winning the hearts and minds of your customers matters more than ever in a connected consumer world:

The Social, Local, Mobile revolution has changed the expectations of your customers. Earning their business isn't as easy as it used to be. You have amazing opportunities to reach them any time and any place, but they will be more fickle about how you talk to them. Treat them wrong and they will tune you out. Treat them right and they will become your biggest cheerleaders. We'll dive in and discuss how delivering amazing experiences will help keep your brand always near and dear.

Sponsored by Urban Airship.

Michael Griffith

Dir of User Experience, Bottle Rocket Apps

Michael Griffith's philosophy is simple, "All I want to do is work with cool people and build cool stuff." Brands live in the minds of the beholder and are shaped through interaction. Michael builds brand experiences in the mobile space.

Michael has been designing new media for 20 years but still suffers night terrors spawned from the 16 color VGA palette (1988). His understanding of information architecture, usability, accessibility, and compliance sets him apart from traditional creative directors. When not actively destroying traditional television and print mediums, Michael teaches others how to do it. He has taught both design and development of new media and continues to speak at professional organizations and conferences.
