What is mobile marketing?
Mobile marketing is a multi-channel, digital marketing strategy aimed at reaching a target audience on their smartphones, tablets, and/or other mobile devices, via websites, email, SMS and MMS, social media, and apps. In recent years, customers have started to shift their attention (and dollars) to mobile. Because of this, marketers are doing the same in order to create true omnichannel engagement. As technology becomes more fragmented, so does marketing. And in order to earn and maintain the attention of potential buyers, content must be strategic and highly personalized.
When it comes to mobile marketing, this means keeping devices in mind and utilizing SMS/MMS marketing and mobile apps. Mobile marketing is an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to building out any short-term or long-term marketing plan. From email, to pay-per-click (PPC), search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing, and social media marketing, there is a mobile marketing channel to reach every part of your audience where they are most comfortable. For mobile marketing to be effective, you need to curate a cohesive experience that customers expect—and that can be a real challenge as you work to acquire, engage, and retain users across a variety of platforms.
Mobile marketing can do wonders for driving brand value and demand for your products or services by leveraging mobile devices to connect with more consumers in real time at any point in the customer lifecycle. Mobile is also growing steadily. According to eMarketer, mobile versus desktop usage stats in the United States in 2018 show that the mobile-only audience will grow to 55.7 million (nearly 19%) by 2022, and Adweek estimates that 79% of smartphone users have their phones on or near them all but two hours a day. Today, there are more mobile devices in the world (8.7 billion) than people (7.1 billion), due largely in part to our voracious appetite for new technology. U.N. data analysts have found that in the United States, 71.5% of citizens over the age of 13 have a smartphone, and 66.5% have smartphones globally (WorldoMeters U.N. data, GSMA Intelligence).
To harness the growing power of mobile marketing, you must focus on creating a seamless experience that your audience expects.
"For me, the future of mobile marketing lies in connecting the dots between online and offline media. Mobile is such a powerful tool when used in conjunction with other, more traditional, media and should be seen as the glue that binds everything together.”
– Mike Reynolds, Senior Mobile Executive, International Advertising Bureau

It's quite interesting hearing the term Mobile Marketing these days. It seems like every company states they are mobile marketers and every solution out there is for mobile marketing. How can you tell what is what?
Well, let's start this off with what mobile marketing isn't. Mobile marketing is not a company placing a post on Facebook or twitter. Although each of these huge networks are dominated by mobile devices, placing just posts or ads without capturing a mobile device is just marketing. Some call it inbound marketing. Others call it digital marketing. However, the major difference with mobile marketing and every other type of marketing out there, is that mobile marketing is the art of capturing a mobile device number through an opt in process, and then sending marketing messages directly to the mobile device.
As we have stated for over twelve years now, yes there were smartphones back then, without a big list of mobile device numbers, how can a business communicate back to their customers and prospects to drive new business, new foot traffic, new web visits and more?
A true mobile marketing system is associated with a short code and a keyword. These are the two primary components of any true mobile marketing campaign. Why use a short code for your mobile marketing messaging? Well, its quite simple,. Because providers that offer short codes, Like Baytech Mobil, PAY the networks to guarantee your message is read. any other type of sending text messages across to mobile phones do not have a guarantee.
Why would you want to spend the time, and money to build a list that has less read throughput than email des? Trues shortcode messaging delivers up to a 95% delivery rate ( if a phone is disconnected for any reason it obviously cannot receive messages)
The other reason to choose a true short code provider, Like Baytech Mobile, is speed of message. When you press send through our software platform, your message is delivered with 1-3 minutes maximum. Its lightening fast.
I have seen so many companies be amazed when we help them to build a good list of prospects and customers, and then when we send a message out, a majority of time someone calls or walks in the location within a few minutes. Mobile marketing is super powerful yet many businesses have yet to employ it.
There seems to be a new message tolerance now with text messages. in fact many consumers prefer text over calls or emails because they know they will get it;. Does this seem smart to you? Consumers WANT text messages because they know they will see it.
So, if you are looking for a super powerful way to connect and re-connect with your prospects and customers, why not check out Baytech mobile. We have been delivering text messages to hundreds of thousands of phones every year for twelve years and counting. We are the leaders in mobile marketing and will save you time and aggravation implementing this simple and powerful marketing tool!!
See you on your phones!!
