					Key Benefits of a Mobile Marketing Strategy




Marketing your business is a critical factor in gaining new customers and increasing your product and service
sales. Across the globe, companies are turning to mobile marketing as the newest effective way to get their
message out to targeted customers. With a well-planned, strategic mobile marketing plan your business can
succeed in reaching many more customers and enhancing sales growth on an ongoing basis.




One of the greatest advantages of a mobile marketing strategy is the low cost. This type of marketing costs
much less than other common marketing methods, such as website advertising and other types of media
promotions. The mobile marketing channel allows companies to conserve funds and re-allocate them to new
products or existing product enhancements, while also targeting new demographic areas.




With mobile marketing, you can get your message to every customer regardless of whether they are traveling in
China, working in Los Angeles or skiing in Austria. Many people always have their mobile phones with them,
making it easier for marketers to have a direct line for information delivery. This is especially convenient
when introducing new services or products.




Keep in mind that part of good marketing is sending messages out just often enough to keep people interested.
Do not send out too many messages so that you end up with customers who go away because they feel bothered or
harassed.




Mobile marketing can also be used to maintain good ongoing relationships with existing customers. This gives
customers a chance to provide feedback regarding products, as well as sharing their changing tastes and
preferences. Marketers must capture this valuable information and use it as inspiration and guidance for
making improvements to their service or product and increasing the satisfaction level of their customers.




Another advantage of mobile marketing is the reduced time it takes to reach every customer. Mobile phones
offer the fastest method to transmit marketing messages to your existing customers and new prospects. You can
get almost real-time response to your marketing messages, which helps you fine-tune them and test out
responses to different campaign variations.




You can announce a new product Monday morning first thing and literally make sales within minutes. Using
mobile marketing makes sense because it shortens the time for communications to travel between marketers and
consumers.




Technology offers other advantages when it comes to mobile marketing. For example, Bluetooth signals can allow
marketing messages to transmit only to consumers that visit a particular booth or kiosk. As another example,
Bluetooth capability can allow marketers to send targeted messages only to people shopping at a certain
shopping mall. This allows extremely targeted messages to reach a pre-qualified audience, which could
dramatically increase their conversion rates.




Mobile marketing is a cutting-edge channel that can bring you very positive results if used properly. By
advertising your products to targeted customers and timing messages well, you can maximize the benefits of
mobile marketing. This frees up many resources so that you can focus on other important business building
activities. Integrating mobile marketing into your overall business promotion strategy is a very worthwhile
investment that could pay dividends for years to come.
