We all know how important our mobile phones are to us. The majority of people can’t live without them, and would feel lost if they didn’t have it by their side. This is why phone sales are so effective. But what else do people use their phones for nowadays? Social media, videos, and taking photos are just a few of the features that people take advantage of with their mobile phones. So why aren’t you using these too to get your message out to potential customers? The possibilities are endless.
It is so easy to target your customers through social media. For free, you can update your social media pages with all the new features your business has to offer. Or maybe if you currently have sales or promotions going on, nothing grabs a customers attention more than knowing they can save money by using your service. You can also link customers to certain pages on your website. Sometimes, customers don’t want to see you waffle on, so simply point them to a page where they can read about your amazing features for themselves.
You can even promote competitions on social media sites such as Facebook. You can easily set up a keyword on a short code for people to text, for example ‘to win 100 free credits’. By doing this, you are also building up a bank of additional phone numbers to use during your next text campaign. Don’t forget, the more likes you get on your social media sites, the more people will see your posts, and the more people who see your post, the more customers you will get. It’s very important to regularly update your sites to keep customers updated and interested.
Mobile phones are widely used to play video’s or to view and take pictures. You can link both social media and video’s and photo’s to grab your customers attention. It’s known that the majority of people would rather watch a video than read a lengthy article or blog post. It’s also very easy to show customers exactly how to use the service, there’s no confusion if you are uploading video’s on how to use different features of the service. Tutorial video’s have been found to be very useful and successful.
Phones are that important to us, statistics show that 91% of us keep our mobile phones within arm's-reach 24/7. This shows just how much time is spent on mobile phones. So what better way to reach out to customers than by a device that never leaves their sight.
