Ah, mobile marketing. Promoting your business on mobile devices could open up new opportunities. With such a wide variety of options, you may wonder where to start. Try starting with the advice below.
Begin your efforts with the acquisition of phone numbers for your database. Avoid adding nothing but mobile numbers to your database. Get permission before adding anyone’s cell phone number to your list. Ask your existing online customers to join your mobile database, and give them a coupon for referring friends.
For the most technologically savvy customers, include QR codes on all printed advertisements. This easily allows smartphone users to access your coupons and website. All of your brochures, cards, and catalogs should have QR codes on them. If a potential customer is really interested in what you are selling, the QR code will give them the ability to learn more.
Mobile marketing messages should be clear and brief. Attention spans are short, so use a short message which includes your company’s name.
Enlist the help of your friends and family to help with your mobile marketing campaign. For an unbiased opinion, you may want to consider paying someone to help you test each aspect.
Keep a close eye on the competitions promotions and ideas, especially successful ones. It is a wonderful way to find out what works and what does not. It is important that you are different than competitors.
