How To Move Aggressivly Using Your Mobile Marketing
In all of marketing history, few marketing techniques have come as close to delivering a personal touch as mobile marketing. Mobile devices are items that most people either keep on their person or in sight for most of their waking hours. This article will build on this information and give you some helpful hints to make this type of networking work for you.
Make your messages fun. Remember that mobile can also be used as a source of entertainment. Make your messages interesting and exciting, while providing the subscriber with either meaningful information or entertainment. When subscribers are doing something or just waiting for something somewhere, they will look to mobile as an exciting or enjoyable distraction.
To draw in customers who might ignore advertisements, give them ways to use their phone’s capabilities. For example, you could ask them to take a picture of an item and then email it to you to get a coupon code. People love to play with their phones, and giving them a chance to do that can attract hard to reach customers.
Make sure your advertisements work for all types of mobile devices. If your programming is only accessible by one type, like an Android, you will lose out on entire populations of prospective clients from other platforms. Using cross-platform programming is the best method to attract the most customers to your business.
If you are going to send out text messages to your customers, do not send them out at hours that would be inconvenient for the clients. Stay away from sending anything out in the evening or early morning. Also, do not send anything on Sundays or holidays unless it is extremely important and relevant.
You must remember that in order to receive something from your subscribers you have to give to them. Try offering some type of incentive. This can be special access to relevant information, special mobile content, or even some coupons to help increase their take rates and your subscribers’ participation.
It might be a good idea to send useful links and information instead of promoting your products once in a while. People will get tired of received promotional offers constantly and will unsubscribe from your campaign if they do not need new products. Keep them interested by sending relevant content.
Check out the competition. Find out what mobile messaging is like from their perspective. Compare the quality of your messages to theirs and find out if you need to make changes in your strategy. Chances are, they are probably watching what you are doing with your marketing efforts as well.
Make your messages concise. This isn’t the time to worry about perfect spelling, as you are limited in the number of characters you can use. If you choose “B” instead of “be”, or “2” instead of “To” you will save characters, and potentially cost. There are some great texting translators online which can help with this.
To summarize, you have an opportunity to connect with people on a personal scale that is otherwise unheard of in marketing. Use the tips provided here in this article to ensure that you are delivering content that is desirable to the customer and relevant to the message you are trying to send out.
