Here's a look at the state of mobile marketing in the first quarter of 2016.

Over 80% of internet users now have a smartphone. By comparison, 47% have tablets.

Retail therapy

Over 80% of shoppers use a smartphone to shop, while brands such as Target are sweetening the deal by luring nearby users with the promise of discounts and free items.

Over 70% of mobile retail searches lead to purchases with one hour.
