Even though your country might not appear in the top 20, you will find that mobile usage is going through the roof around the world. Australia sitting at no.38 with 21,260,000 mobile phones with a population of only 21,179,211  means that every person in Australia is on mobile or some of us have more than 1. (See full list of the top 63 countries by mobile usage here)

There is no doubt mobile have become a daily tool or toy for some as you can see the “mobile zombies” at every bus stop, train station or walking through the city and that includes me. There’s so much to do, check email, post blogs, update facebook, twitter sms and maybe take or make a call. So how have you adjusted your business to the mobile take over happening around the world?

Mobile marketing can become a great source of major or minor income for you. These tips will help you an inside look at the world of mobile marketing.

You need a proper database. Do not just add loads of numbers when you are constructing a mobile marketing database. It is advisable to attain permission from your potential customers & users before implementing any type of database with their personal information. You can get permission through the web or by having the individual text you using a code (check the laws in your country)

Your advertisements should have web links or QR codes to assist your technologically savvy customers. Anyone with a smart phone can use the QR code and access your site or coupons. Put them on every printed marketing item, including fliers, catalogs, brochures and anything else.

Mobile content should be brief. They need to be able to understand and absorb your message you want to convey in under a second or at first glance, thats all the time you get to capture sometimes attention.

Creating a mobile site has become a necessity. It as simple as this, if you site cannot been website is not mobile ready, you are losing or going to lose a lot of business.

Recruit friends and family to help you test your marketing methods before trying them on the public.

Avoid sending texts to consumers during the day. Even your very best customer will be irritated by receiving a text message in the early morning or late at night, nobody wants to hear about your offers no matter how good they are at ridiculous hours.

Wait until the results are in on your first mobile marketing campaign before you cook up a new one. Test, then test again and when you finish testing do some more tests, I think I’m making myself quite clear here when I say that testing a campaign before you go all out is so important. There have been companies who have lost customers by the truck full based on bad mobile campaigns or sending out the wrong information to the wrong people or at the wrong time.

When you actually speak to people via phone calls or text, remember to personalise it and treat the person at the end of the phone with respect.

Mobile marketing is quite a bit more than a lot of people think, you need to put in some of your time to understand it and make it work for your business. Remember if you get stuck you have Google to do research on. If you need help with making your website or all of your website mobile ready feel free to get in touch with me for a consultation.
