Today in this Article we will discuss over Best Practices for Effective Mobile Engagement Campaigns:
1) Target the right customers: Who they are, how they behave, and where they Go
Targeting campaigns is very important because it allows you to interact with the right customer in a very less amount of time-based on who they are? How they behave? Where they go?
Your location should be somewhere where your customer is likely to be ready to take some type of action or at least be open to a suggestion to do so.
Your business can get a better idea of where campaigns should be used by knowing their customer’s behavior and considering things such as:
Identifying your new and frequent Visitors.
Discover customer journey in real-time through understanding the audience. How much time customers spend in a certain place or location. Tagging users that visited your competitor’s location to bring them back.
Mobile Marketing Campaigns depend on how often messages are delivered since there is a fine line with marketing for most brands between offering something potentially useful or being viewed as annoying. So for avoiding this you should follow the rules to establish target, schedule, frequency, & limit to your location-based campaigns.
Schedule: You can schedule your campaigns by days & hour intervals.
Target: Through target you can segment your audience based on demographics, purchase history, language, visit duration, and many other attributes.
Frequency: Here you can set up the maximum number of times for an individual user to see your campaigns.
Impressions limit: It allows you to control the maximum number of impressions you can allow an individual user to have per day.
Your campaigns should be based on times of the day, location & behavior, when people are likely to be engaged for what’s being provided to them.
Location technology includes the use of marketing tactics for sending out mobile communications while the customer is in a particular place or location. The main success factor of the marketing campaign is based on the use of moderation & avoiding temptation to overwhelm customers.
2) Engage your Customers using different Marketing Campaigns
For a great user engagement and building strong relationships with the customers, you need to provide them a relevant content at the right time at the right place.
Firstly, you should know that what is being offered. While the WHAT can be special offers, purchase reminders, and flash sales so on. A mobile campaign can also be effective while altering people in the area of the relevant product, services, events, or Venuses they might be interested in.
You can make your mobile an integral part of the customer experience using different marketing campaigns as shown below:
Event-Triggered messaging –You can engage the user by triggering push or in-app messages based on a set of events made by a user with a specific user attributes.
Proximity Triggered Notifications –By using beacons, Wi-Fi networks, you will be able to trigger location-based content when a customer enters, leaves, stay a certain period in an indoor location.
Geolocation Triggered Notifications– Geolocation helps you send customer’s geo-targeted campaigns when they enter, leave, or stay outdoor location for a certain period.
Now it might be possible that not every service & product can be promoted effectively with location-based campaigns. In this case an employment application can generate a lot of activity among users by making your event-triggered campaigns more effective.
3) Measure and collect Customer Data
