3 Great Mobile Marketing Tips

Below are some great mobile marketing tips to help your small business succeed with mobile selling:

1. Great Customer Service – Customer service on mobile devices comes in the form of ‘ease of use’. This means that their experience on your mobile website should be flawless. Having a mobile-friendly website will make it easy for your customers to view products, and thus, make a purchase. Your mobile website must be conversion-fiendly, this will also increase the likelihood of making sales. Customers shouldn’t have to look for the purchase or subscription option, it should be on every page.

2. Giveaways – Entice your customers with a giveaway or competition. This will create a buzz around your brand, as well as, increase customer satisfaction. Customer experience is everything when it comes to E-commerce, whether that be on a mobile device or not. Making your customers feel appreciated will guarantee repeat business, this is Ecommerce 101.

3. Be Brief – With mobile marketing, you only get a limited number of words so as to get your message across. This means that what you say has to be on-point and catchy. Otherwise, users are going to get bored and disinterested. A happy customer is the best and cheapest marketing available to businesses of every size!
