Merkle Mobile Marketing Solutions
Mobile marketing has evolved from “experimental” to a proven means of engaging consumers, driven by the highly personal, permission based relationship that mobile provides. In fact, mobile marketing is projected to be one of the fastest growing segments for marketing spend going forward. Properly utilized, mobile is integrated into other key channels (websites, email, direct mail, TV, radio, print, outdoor, events, etc.) as a means of “activating” those media and building a mobile relationship with the consumer on a device rarely more than an arm’s length away. To take full advantage of the opportunity, companies must approach mobile as a key component of their CRM strategy rather than a standalone or one-off activity.
Taking a CRM Approach to Mobile Mobile can be enormously complex if approached primarily from a technology-driven standpoint. Confusing claims from providers of SMS, WAP, IVR, mobile advertising, content and video applications can be difficult to make sense of. Worse, these providers tend to focus on supplying tactically oriented executions that lack the vital channel integration strategy that is necessary for mobile campaigns to succeed.
