These numbers are according to the semi-annual 2012 Mobile Marketing Analytics Report released by Mogreet, the premier multimedia-based mobile marketing provider.

Currently, over two-thirds of all multimedia messaging delivered by businesses to consumers in the United States is done via the Mogreet platform.

“As the installed base of smartphones surpasses 50 percent in the United States, MMS provides a unique opportunity for marketers to reach all of their consumers with high-quality, engaging mobile video,” said James Citron, CEO of Mogreet.  “With the continuing increase in the quality of cameras, video cameras and photography apps on mobile devices, consumers are naturally taking and sharing more pictures and videos than every before from their mobile device. Mogreet’s MMS platform allows digital marketers to reach the mobile consumer looking to consume video, pictures and audio on their devices to increase consumer loyalty, engagement and responsiveness.”

The company’s platform metrics are used by clients to improve their marketing effectiveness and reach. These metrics include data such as regional hotspots (brands can tailor offers to users in a specific geographic area), app development priorities (if a critical mass of their customers are using Android phones over iPhones, they may choose to develop Android apps first), and many other valuable drivers.
