Mobile Marketing Infographic
How long could you be without a mobile device? Minutes, hours…certainly not days, right? For some of you, just thinking about that question may have caused you some anxiety. Most people have their phones on or near them nearly 24 hours a day, even when they sleep. We have been living in the mobile world for years and have gradually become dependent on our phones for so many things that we once used other non-mobile methods for such as an alarm clock, gaming system or a desktop computer. Mobile communications started with calls as cell phones became the norm. No longer did you have to wait for someone to be home or at the office to talk to them. Then SMS allowed us to reach people without having to call. Now we have mobile responsive websites, mobile responsive emails, MMS Marketing, mobile apps, mobile payments, mobile commerce, mobile banking, etc… You name it and there is likely to be a mobile version or application of it. We helped our friends over at the MarketingTechBlog put together this infographic detailing why you should focus on Mobile!
Connective Mobile now has MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service). This means that our customers can now send images, sound and video to their target audience in addition to longer text messages… and it won’t cost you or the end user anything additional to do so.
As the old saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Sending an image along with text allows our customers to engage even more with their fans. Restaurants can send an image of a new dish that they are offering just before the lunch or dinner hour to help people make their meal decision. Retail can send an image of new or popular items. Spas can help clients envision treating themselves to a luxury treatment. Doing a text promotion at an event? Include a sponsor logo in your messaging. We have already seen some great MMS campaigns. How will you use MMS?
We wanted to say thanks to Jason Bean over at TechStartups.com for posting a great article on our mobile business cards. Jason did a great job of explaining the features and uses of the Text Card. You can read it here:
