Use Mobile Marketing as a tool for instant communication with your consumers via mobile or cellular devices. With mobile marketing, not only are the marketing messages easy to create but they are sent directly to the recipients within a few seconds – instant direct marketing.
For example you could send text messages letting customers know about special discounts and offers. This form of mobile marketing allows businesses to not only expand their business, but also to build stronger relationships with existing customers.
Here are some ways to include mobile marketing in your business strategy:
Create a ‘mobi’ version of your website
Mobi sites are websites that are optimized for viewing on a mobile phone. This is especially useful to customers that don’t have access to the internet on a computer.
