Engage with SMS and Mobile Apps
The explosive popularity of mobile devices has led to an enormous new market in the form of mobile marketing. This has led to a huge demand for SMS marketing systems and mobile apps of all types. Mobile marketing is one of the most powerful marketing concepts available today for local business.
As a small business owner, an SMS marketing system and a mobile app can also be used to help you attract new customers, keep customers coming back for more, and build more genuine, long-term connections between your brand and your target audience.
Engage Your Customers with Mobile Marketing
SMS (Short Messaging Service) is a very powerful customer engagement tool. It allows you to immediately send a message, a coupon, or a special to your list of SMS users.
Fill up your restaurant on a slow night or bring customers, patients or clients into your door the same day with coupons or special notices or offerings.
Our mobile marketing system is a complete SMS marketing platform, and can include the following:
- A tablet set up in your store where people enter their cell phone numbers to get on your “list”.
- Keywords appropriate to your business that your customers can text a message to and join.
- Complete GRAPHICAL coupon capability. These convert much better than the paper variety or a simple text.
- Loyalty Program – get rid of the printed cards that everyone loses.
- Landing page capability. Build a mobile landing page to utilize for advertising.
- Run weekly, or monthly campaigns
- You pay per text, starting at $.05 per text
An incredible way to engage your current customer base with coupons and specials.
The good news, 95% of SMS text messages are opened within 1 minute of them being received. Incredible Conversion Rate!
Compare that to email, which currently has an open rate of only 20%!
SMS marketing can be a goldmine for your business!
What are Mobile Apps?
A mobile app (or “application”) is a form of computer software that is designed to run on small, wireless computer devices such as smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.
Their main purpose is to provide mobile users with some of the similar services available via PCs and laptops. Some apps are small and contain limited functionality for the sole purpose of accomplishing one task, while more sophisticated apps contain more robust features and advanced functionality.
Some apps entertain, such as games, music-streaming apps, and video-streaming apps. Others educate, such as apps that provide helpful tips and advice on widely popular interests. And some are e-commerce apps, where people can buy your products and services from inside the app, just as if they were ordering it from your website.
Apps can be developed for any purpose, even fundraising for nonprofits, or event apps for conventions, concerts or other large gatherings.
Here are just a few of the things you can do with a Mobile App:
- Loyalty Programs
- Showcase Services
- Business Information
- Direct Customer Contact
- Social Media
- One Touch Referrals
- Fan Wall
- Push Notifications (PIN)
- Book Appointments
- …and more
Why Mobile Apps?
Did you know that, on average, people have 26 apps installed on their phones? Apps are hot right now and a key to mobile marketing. What could be more powerful than residing on the mobile phone of your customer?
With your own mobile app, you can stay within reach of your customers and potential customers around the clock.
Advertising has taken on a new form with mobile apps; traditional ads are an “interruption,” whereas users who own your app actually want to hear from you.
By being able to utilize the “push-button” notification feature, you can contact your mobile app users within seconds – right in the palm of their hands. As mentioned above, with SMS you must pay for each message sent, with apps, those messages are free of charge, and you pay nothing to send a PIN message to your app users.
You can update them on company news, special discounts and offers, and other type of information they would find useful. It’s also a passive way to showcase your products and services in a subtle way without a lot of hard-selling.
However, one of the best ways to get the most out of your app is to provide a solution to a problem your customers may have; this is a powerful way to keep them glued.
Some studies show that 30-60% of mobile app users open push notifications and approximately 40% of them interact with the app immediately after receiving the notification.
Having your own mobile app allows you to:
- Provide a portal where customers can learn about your products and services
- Educate visitors on your company, its goals, and how you can help them
- Reward, recognize and encourage repeat customers to keep coming back for more
