How Is Mobile Marketing Being Used Today?

The main avenues of mobile promotion currently relate to:

  • Applications a smart phone uses, or other interactive gadgets that are speeding up ideas and conversations.
  • Customer service, appointment reminders, and customer deals for all sorts of things.
  • Better video cameras and standardization for quickly sharing photos with friends and online.
  • More sharing platforms for social interaction, location/store/restaurant information, hooking up with friends.
  • Q-Codes and Short Codes for discounts and freebies through real time mobile coupons.

Soon even your Health Care provider will offer their services through mobile devices, making it easy to shedule, confirm appointments, and touch base for critical care needs.

A lot more local small businesses are beginning to choose to provide information regarding their particular expert services via brief, to-the-point mobile landing pages and detailed Local Places and Maps – so people on the go find them, walk in their doors, and buy from them! – as well as starting to capture phone numbers and email addresses through mobile lead capture pages.

Then the local business can follow with mobile message texting – selectively, not too often, and always giving value. You want to build relationship, loyalty, repeat business… NOT spam someone, annoy them and drive them away!

Depending upon what the target customer has responded to and the nature of the business, the customer might receive two-for-one specials for tonight at a restaurant, notice of a showing of new clothing styles or a special live event, discount coupons, new release information for a hot new show, and more.  These are all  announced via a simple sales message.

The volume of traffic your web page receives by way of mobile phones is now being tracked by the major search engines in order to start ranking these mobile ready sites, so it’s a “whole new internet!” . . . One you can’t afford to miss, because your competitor won’t!

Mobile phone marketing and advertising can save you a small fortune when compared with other marketing methods, so why not give it a try?
