Mobile marketing is one of the most popular forms of marketing for companies now that mobile technology is so popular among consumers
But as technology advances, mobile marketing strategies become more complex and require more time from brands to stay updated. Mobile marketing used to be as simple as sending a simple SMS or email to select consumers with a 10% off coupon attached while this tactic is still successful to some extent, consumers expect more from their mobile experiences.
Popular forms of mobile marketing include interactive applications for smartphones and tablets, and interactive social media advertisements with the keyword being interactive. Consumers are much more willing – if not excited – to participate in interactive mobile marketing than they have been in the past, and that is because mobile technology has become a part of most consumers’ everyday lives. Consumers are attached to their mobile devices unlike anything else, this being great news for brands as it means their ads will always be seen. However, companies should not underestimate the time it takes to run successful mobile marketing campaigns. If companies want to see success from mobile marketing, they need to constantly be aware of the newest technology and make sure that their mobile campaigns are always up-to-date. We live in an impatient society, consumers become disinterest with companies who don’t keep their mobile marketing tactics up to date.
