Mobile marketing is currently the hottest tool for Richmond small business owners, as virtually everyone on Earth including your buyers now own a cell phone.

As this type of marketing is relatively new, there is not much advice around. This article contains a few tips and ideas to help you to get started with mobile marketing.

Tip #1

Add a sense of urgency or value to your Richmond mobile marketing campaign efforts. In most cases, customers following a mobile link or advertisement expect to receive information quickly and in short, segments. Rather than trying to put a large amount of content or information through a mobile channel, focus on short bursts designed to provide customers with enough information to pique their interest.

 

Tip #2

Get your website mobile friendly! Take a look at your website on a mobile device. Don’t like what you see? Most Richmond companies we talk to are dumbfounded when they actually see what their site looks like on mobile. Please get your site onto a mobile-friendly platform. Look at your content management system to see if it offers a mobile plugin, or talk to a local digital advertising agency to build a solution for you. Either way, it is important to make your site look professional and engaging on all mobile devices including tablets!

 

Tip #3

Make your messages fun. Remember that mobile can also be used as a source of entertainment. Make your messages interesting and exciting, while providing the subscriber with either meaningful information or entertainment. When subscribers are doing something or just waiting for something somewhere, they will look to mobile as an exciting or enjoyable distraction.

When building a mobile marketing campaign, you need to make sure that you know the Richmond market first and foremost. If you cannot identify and correctly cater to your intended market, your campaign is going to ultimately fall flat and nothing will be able to save it. Identify your market and know it well.

 

Tip #5

You should be focusing on all your stats as a mobile marketer and not just a few popular ones. Measure your entire success, meaning your repeat usage, bounce rate, unique visitors, and your more popular stats like downloads, opens, activations and registrations. You want a feel for it all as it happens
