Mobile marketing is becoming increasingly popular due to the huge number of us who use our mobile devices for searching and buying products and services off the internet. The week before Christmas is expected to see a massive increase in online searches compared to the previous period and over 60% of these searches are done on mobiles. Christmas 2016 saw a whopping 21 billion spent through online sales.
There are many ways in which to target mobile customers in terms of marketing. Some companies use a SMS text service allowing them to connect directly with each individual. Other companies use an app to engage users and then send them updates regarding their company via the app. If for example a company has an upcoming sale, they may send out a notification that pings up on your phone telling you about it or (if you have allowed permission) actually add the event in to your calendar.
App production and ongoing marketing can really help a business and once the initial developments costs have been paid, the running costs are not usually that much.
