Sometimes it can be hard to separate the pros from the schmo’s. Developing your marketing strategy will take time, and don’t try to use any shortcuts. That will only make your job a lot more complicated and expensive in the end. While browsing around you will see a lot of information, and you may feel overwhelmed. Don’t be, just follow the guidelines and tips we have below to make developing a mobile marketing strategy to increase brand awareness simple and stress free.
As there are WAY too many to cover in just this one blog, we will continue to show you important mobile marketing strategies to increase brand awareness next week in Part Two!
Here are some of the types of mobile marketing that will increase brand awareness. Read the description next to it to gauge whether it would be successful or unsuccessful with your business.
Mobile Website: This mobile marketing strategy is one of the most important assets to have to build your brand awareness on a mobile platform. Many shoppers and diners now go online using their mobile device. Regular sites may look nice and function well on a computer or laptop, but they can be difficult to navigate and view on a phone or tablet. Creating a mobile friendly site will not only increase brand awareness but will also give you an insight on how people are viewing your page and for what reason. Just like a normal website, make sure all of your SEO characteristics are also transitioned onto the mobile site. A mobile website has actually proven to benefit as more people are likely to stay and browse through your website if it is mobile friendly rather than if it isn’t. If you have not transitioned your brand identity onto a mobile platform, definitely start with a mobile site!
Mobile Applications: Another great way to increase your brand awareness is to either have an app developed specifically for your business, or hop onto one of the many mobile apps out there that are specific to your business, location, or demographic. This mobile marketing strategy can be paired up with others as well, so don’t think you need to choose this over a mobile website. There are many different mobile apps to be apart of, don’t be shy about trying a few different ones. Some apps may allow you to list your business information for reviews while others give you the ability to offer promotions exclusively. Both mobile marketing strategies will help increase your brand awareness.
And the last one we will cover in Part One…
Mobile QR Codes: This strategy is fun for the business owner and mobile user. Since emerging a few years back, QR scanning has increased well over 400%. People love to stop what they are doing to scan a code they see. Some may bring them to a special exclusive page on your site while others may offer deals. QR codes are a great tool to use when you want to increase your brand awareness. Scanning the code makes the consumer feel special, so make it worth it! QR scanning is also a great way to track certain campaigns, as you can pair it with your analytics to determine important information to narrow down your target audience. Though QR codes are a great feature to have, first make sure you have a mobile website available before exploring these types of mobile marketing strategies.
Always make sure you do your due diligence and research on different mobile marketing strategies. What works for one business won’t necessarily work for the next. Make sure you get a mobile site up and running as soon as you can before exploring the other types mobile marketing strategies that will increase your brand awareness.
