Mobile marketing has become an increasingly popular and necessary form of advertising, particularly as mobile devices increase in popularity over time. Below, you will find some helpful tips to keep up and utilize this technology to create a strong base of customers for your business, product, or charity. Following these simple tips will help to ensure your success as an entrepreneur, given today’s technological age.

Promote your mobile media campaign! Branch out, and consider tweeting about it, or use Facebook. You can also make a brief YouTube video about it, or create a tumblr post about it, among countless other things. There are dozens of frequently-used social media sites that will help you promote your campaign digitally. Additionally, you can advertise ‘the old fashioned way’ in newspapers, on television, through fliers, or through physical communication. Do not consider any one area ‘out-of-bounds’ to you–any way to build a broader audience should be considered.

Be concise, and become very apparently interesting very quickly. This will allow your customers to be more interested in your product, and less likely to ignore your message, whether it be via call or text. If they are signed up on a subscription list for your message, they may be expecting it. If they are not, you have even more pressure to become very interested in a matter of seconds. Do not take this task lightly– it may determine the difference between one hundred viewers and a thousand.

Use short, precise wording or pictures. Trying to determine what an abstract logo is may be fun on a flier or poster, but on a mobile device, is near impossible. Be being consistently clear and exact, you increase the overall likelihood of people understanding your message, without thinking you are somehow trying to deceive them.

Avoid caps lock! It is often seen as ‘shouting’ or ‘angry’, and will deter customers and readers from your message. It is also often seen as inconsiderate or impolite, especially given that it is, for some people, hard to read.

Allow for your customers to give you feedback on your message. Include a ‘contact us’ or ‘suggestion box’ at the bottom of your website, to use criticisms of your work as a means of improvement. Your customers will be more receptive to a business that listens to its target audience.

Send messages when you are aware of a want or need for them. Sending sale messages during a financially pressed time (before Christmas, for example) is more welcome than sending a message asking for charity at that time. Additionally, sending messages sporadically, with important information in each email, is better than sending one email, of novel length, with all the information.

Keep up with technology! As devices become more capable, make more intricate and advanced marketing strategies. This will hold the interest of your audience and make them more interested in your product, company, or charity.

Mobile marketing is very useful, given the vast ocean of technology that has become available. These tips will help to ensure your entrepreneurial success.
