Listening to the wants and needs of customers is the first step to successful mobile marketing. Listen to your clients’ needs and act accordingly. Find out what the competition is doing, and figure out if what they do is something that can work for you.
Take the time to promote your business on all the social networking sites. If you don’t get your name now, you may find that someone else claims it and your account will remain hard to find. Start with the basics, then your business can branch out to more sites. Use Foursquare and Facebook as a bare minimum for advertisement of your business.
If you are attempting to physically speak to people through a phone call, or even text them, remember that the key term here is “people.” Adapt your mobile marketing calls to the circumstances of the person you are calling.
Mobile marketing is less about expanding your customer base than it is about maintaining the customers you already have. Customers who are already invested will be much more open to getting text messages with updates about your products. When new customers see mobile marketing efforts they usually think it spam.
Do not send emails out too often. You’ll realize higher redemption rates if you don’t send them out too often. Your customer should feel as if they will miss out if they don’t accept the offer immediately. If they believe another offer is imminent, they are not as likely to be swayed by the current offer to take action.
No matter how good your advertising is, there is always room for adjustment. Also keep a watchful eye on the strategies your competition is employing. With that in mind, use the above tips to stay on top of the mobile marketing game.
