You Don't Need a Weatherman

What’s your go-to device for checking the weather report? If you’re like most digital users, you probably said your smartphone or tablet. According to a recent study from Millennial Media, 69 percent of consumers most often use a mobile device to check the weather. If consumers are more interested in finding a destination to escape to when the weather turns ugly, the same report predicts they’ll use a PC to do so (69 percent of consumers use a PC to look at travel content online). That’s an important insight if you’re a travel brand.

Understanding how consumers spend their time on different devices is the key to producing effective cross-screen marketing campaigns, and as consumers continue to use certain devices for particular online interactions — a 2013 Google Ipsos study found that nine out of 10 consumers used multiple devices during the purchase process — cross-screen marketing will grow to become a critical area of focus for marketers.
