Cindy: My background is in search engine optimization and web marketing; I have always been fascinated by communication, and what makes ideas or suggestions compelling to different people. I became interested in mobile marketing when I was doing some research and realized that no one was really talking about it. Before the iPhone was even a rumor, mobile marketing seemed like an immense opportunity to me.
