What are Mobile Ads & what can I expect?
Mobile ads are seen in many places on mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads, & Smartphones. The idea is that the mobile ads, often like mini banner ads, provide branding for your company. They are relatively cheap to deploy and are a zero to low cost when people respond to these mobile ads.
Mobile Ads campaigns are market sector & location specific
Depending on your market sector and area of coverage there are many opportunities for getting your ad seen, and for the most part, activity & costs are scalable. This provides for manageable, low cost branding opportunities for your business, whatever the demographic of your prospects.
How can I deliver SMS Texts to my customers?
Delivery of sms text messages to your customers is very easy. You simply decide on your message and send that message straight to our service. We double-check it before broadcasting. Next we send you a confirmation and then distribute it to your list of recipients, either straight away or at a scheduled time. It is easy and your part takes moments.
The sms text message itself can be anything you want. Typically it will be to announce special offers, promote an event, include a competition or be for any other kind of news.
Most businesses don’t have a list of customers to send the text messages too. That’s OK, because we have a whole variety of methods to build that list with you.
Ultimately you will have a list of ‘opted-in’ recipients of your messages. Depending on your market sector and personal goals this list may have 50, 500 or 5,000 active, interested, opt-in customers on it.
SMS Texts V’s Email
One of the main reasons that sms texts provide such a responsive direct marketing channel is that the text method has not been ruined in the way that e-mail has, by endless spam. Open rates for sms text campaigns run at over 95%, whereas e-mail open rates have sunk to as low as 2 or 3%, (source Mobile Marketing Association).
Texts are a very well received method of marketing because recipients of the messages will have opted-in to receive text messages from your organisation, and yours is always good news to receive. Recipients of these texts also have a simple method of instantly opting out of receiving any more messages. You are always the good guy.
How can I deliver Coupons to my customers?
Alongside sms text messaging, electronic coupon ads are the most effective form of direct response advertising a local business can do. Once again, it is a very easy process for you as a business owner to implement.
There are many Coupons networks!
There are many coupon distribution networks covering the UK, each with their own market sector strengths and weaknesses, each with their own set up criteria and distribution and delivery methods. We have a wide knowledge of them, and consequently can optimise any coupon campaign that you wish to run. This avoids you having to go through an expensive learning curve. Also we will design your coupons, implement distribution, then manage and revue your campaigns. This enables you to concentrate on the day to day running of your business while the results pour in!
Typically, coupons are delivered to people who have:
Searched online for offers in your location / market sector
Had them passed to them by friends / relatives
Browsed for coupons & special offer websites & opted in to receive them
Visited you website and opted in to receive special offer coupons
Been referred to an opt-in point some other way
Scanned a QR-Code that takes them to a coupons opt-in web page

QR Codes in your business
QR Codes are versatile and incredibly easy to use by anyone who has a camera phone. Currently there is a novelty value and cudos to QR Code usage by consumers, and so some possible short term promotional benefits for that alone.
