When you consider what sort of mobile marketing plan would work best, there are probably a million things whirling around in your head. This article will take some of the guesswork out of the process of promoting your business in the mobile realm.
Have a telephone number database to assist your mobile marketing efforts. Cell phone numbers are not the only thing you will want to add to your list. Make sure you get your customers’ permission before you add anything. You can accomplish this by using web forms or you can have the person sign up via text messaging.
Never send unnecessary messages to your customers. Be sure your message means something to the recipient and that they will welcome the message. There have been instances of marketing campaigns going very wrong when businesses abused their mobile privileges with their customers and sent texts that did not have any substance. Customers aren’t looking for humorous, personal messages from a business they patronize. They’re looking for valuable information and ways to save money.
Work to please your customers. If you don’t know what your customers want, find out! If you do not know what your customer is interested in, you will not be successful in selling to them. The key to successful marketing is that you must figure out the basic attributes of your customer; who they are and what they want.
Have QR codes on your printed ads for the more tech-savvy consumers. This makes it easy for smart phone users to access your site and use your coupons. You should put the QR code everywhere: catalogs, brochures, posters, business cards, and any other printed materials you use. If a customer is interested, the QR code is an easy way for them to learn about your business.
As we have shown you, mobile marketing campaigns all have some components in common. Where the techniques vary is in how they are applied and which technologies they use. Do some research and use your common sense in choosing the most ideal approaches for your business, your budget and yourself.
