AKQA Launch A Mobile Digital Arm


UK ad-agency Akqa has launched a mobile division, appointing Dan Rosen — who launched mobile marketing agency 12snap in 2000 — to head the division. Plans are currently underway to see how the new division should intergrate with Akqa’s other global operations. Moves by large agencies into the mobile space is seen as a big threat to pure-play mobile marketers — I think it will thin the flock a little but the good ones will remain.
This is via MobHappy, where Russell Buckley sees this move as the latest sign that 2006 will see a thaw in mobile marketing as it begins to be taken seriously by large advertisers and the industry.
