Effective Mobile Marketing Strategies

Effective Mobile Marketing Strategies

Despite being relatively new to the internet marketing scene, mobile marketing is making its mark as a method with extreme potential. Since mobile marketing is not well known as of yet, it is important to find all the facts about this strategy. Here are a few things that you should look at before getting started:


Build and maintain your list the right way. No one likes intrusive advertising. This is especially true when it comes to receiving text marketing messages on their personal cell phones. Make sure you avoid being an annoyance by requiring that everyone opts-in to your subscriber list. Also, every message you send must include clear instructions on how to remove themselves from further messages. Don’t forget about the quality of your messages and value of your offers. If you are offering exclusive discounts to your subscribers, they will likely feel that it would be a huge mistake to stop receiving your messages.


The timing of your ads is very important in mobile marketing, just as it is in email marketing. You should not assume that you can simply send an SMS or a more expensive MMS message and automatically get a massive response. Despite the fact that many people carry their cell phone with them everywhere they go, they may not have the time or may be in the middle of something and not be able to read your message. Therefore, sending one at the wrong time may mean that your message will simply be ignored.


For example, say you own a grocery store, it would be best to send your ads close to the times people are usually shopping for groceries. This may be after 5pm during weekdays as people often shop after they leave work. If you are a restaurant interested in announcing your new lunch specials, you may want to send them out at 11am or so just as people are starting to think about what they want to eat for lunch.


Test, track, and segment your campaigns. Mobile marketing systems allow you to keep track of the results of your campaigns, including the number of messages sent, delivered, read, and more. If you are sending a coupon, make sure each campaign has a unique code so that you can keep track of how many times it is actually redeemed. Most systems also allow you to segment your list into different groups, meaning you can send different messages to your chosen demographic groups. For example, you may have a group of clients that have purchased a particular product. You likely have the option to send messages only to that group offering discounts on related products or upgrades.


Take a note of these tips when you are adding mobile marketing into your overall strategy. Mobile marketing offers a level of intimacy and ‘instant’ communication that no other advertising medium offers. It is quickly growing in the United States and any business that adopts it now will likely take a huge step past their competition.

HTML 5 vs Mobile Apps

HTML 5 vs Mobile Apps

Years ago, Google predicted that mobile search would be bigger than PC search and that applications for mobile phones would be replaced by Web sites designed specifically for mobiles. Since that time, mobile search has indeed seen explosive growth with the rapid development of smart phones, helped along in large part thanks to Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android mobile operating system.


The iPhone’s biggest selling point is the >250,000 mobile applications available to download from Apple’s iTunes store (some for free, some paid), along with all their media content. Android is catching up fast with over 100,000 applications available in their ‘Market’.


While Apple are control freaks and like to moderate everything that happens on their devices, adopting a ‘walled garden’ approach to mobile internet, Google prefer to allow anyone and everyone to write software for their Android platform. A strategy which seems to be working as Android devices now outsell their iPhone rivals.


Google probably realise that mobile applications are merely an intermediate step in the evolution of mobile content. Developing a mobile phone application for every major smartphone OS is very expensive and time consuming. Apple probably hopes that this situation will persist as they can really control the content on their smartphones and iPods and hope to maintain their market advantage. Many mobile applications never get released on iTunes, without Apple so much as explaining why they won’t approve them. Indeed, Apple doesn’t allow Flash on their phones at all!


HTML 5 could replace the large majority of mobile applications as many of them do not require advanced functionality that is beyond the capabilities of its language. It would also dramatically lower the cost for anyone wanting to offer their product or service across the major smartphone OS’s.  So why aren’t HTML 5 sites already replacing mobile applications?


There are a few reasons. HTML 5 is not an official standard yet, and different browsers offer different HTML 5 compatibility. Therefore it is still difficult for Web developers to create mobile ‘applications’ using HTML 5 which will work perfectly across the major smartphones. Secondly, Apple won’t get behind HTML 5 sites for mobiles as they are making far too much money from iTunes apps. Thirdly, Apple/Google/Microsoft/Nokia need to work out a way for users to easily find and ‘bookmark’ their favourite HTML 5 sites and access them via icons on their phone.


I foresee an HTML 5 ‘marketplace’ being created by someone (if it doesn’t already exist) and catching on in the not too distant future. Web developers and designers can then show off what they can do with HTML 5 and hopefully have as much success as some of the mobile application developers. The whole point of the Internet is that it is open and (largely) free. Google appears to understand this concept and is helping it come to mobiles with Android. The ‘walled garden’ concept pioneered by AOL failed and we have to hope won’t hang around for long on mobiles either.

Mobile Adverts Are Powerful, Cash in on This New Industry

Mobile Adverts Are Powerful, Cash in on This New Industry

Advertising on cars has a relatively short history. Company vans and trucks as well as public transport such as buses and trams have long had advertising on them. Cars, on the other hand, have largely been seen as a personal transport vehicle and not to be tampered with. Ads adorning cars can sometimes be seen as a vulgar intrusion into the devoted car owner's world.


That is now changing fast. Now there are companies who are willing to pay car owners to have their adverts plastered all over the car body. Of course, you do have to qualify for the privilege of being paid to drive a car with ads wrapped around it, but it certainly does happen, and increasingly so too.


Of course, anyone who agrees to have a flashy advert on his or her car must also be the kind of person who doesn't mind being stared at. The new vinyl wraps that can create just about any kind of image imaginable on a car can be - and usually are - very eye-catching. People do turn by the dozen to look and stare as the car drives past.


It's the computer-generated vinyl wraps that have revolutionised advertising on cars. These can be a full wrap where the entire car is covered with the ad or a partial wrap where only parts of the car have advertising and the natural paintwork shows through elsewhere.


Buses and trams are natural choices for vehicle advertising. They spend all day trundling around city streets, thousands of people travel in them and thousands more wait for them to arrive, watching other buses and trams go past in the meantime.


This translates into an advertising medium that few can avoid. The more creative and inventive the advertising on cars, buses or trams, and some are real works of art, the more eyes turn to look as the mobile ad moves past.


Advertising on cars is really a progression from traditional advertising on company vans and trucks. Company logos and trademarks have long been seen on company vans. It's essentially free advertising for the company since they own the van or truck anyway. They can place their company logo with an address and telephone contact, email and web address and expect to get some increased business as a result.


Now there's a new twist in all of this. It has been noted by some enterprising people that there are many white company vans running around that don't have company details on them. These are usually small companies with small fleets, but they represent a great opportunity.


White vans without advertising or company logos can carry advertising for other companies and be paid to do it. Of course, they are unlikely to want to carry adverts that might benefit their competition, but they might be happy to carry ads that complement their business. Being paid to do this has the added bonus of helping to offset the cost of running the van in the first place. It doesn't get much better than that.
