How to Solve the Mobile Customer Engagement Conundrum

These days, the answer to pretty much anything we want is just a tap or click away.  As the Harvard Business Review describes it, we live in a world of micro-moments, frequent moments in which we intensely want or need something such as a particular fact, destination, product, service, or activity; right here, right now.

Throughout the day, we frequently use mobile devices to check the Google Maps app for traffic updates, make a last minute reservation on Open Table for dinner that night, or calling your pharmacy to make sure your prescription is ready.

Various versions of “I have a bad feeling about this” appear throughout all episodes of Star Wars. For me, the most memorable occurs in episode IV, the original Star Wars from 1977, when Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie find themselves jumping into the Death Star’s trash compactor in an attempt to evade stormtroopers and certain capture. It gets eerily silent, except for some creaking in the walls. Just before the walls start to close in on them, Han Solo is a soothsayer, “I got a bad feeling about this.”
