It’s no surprise that mobile and social channels are key components in any successful marketing strategy. To stay on top, marketers must embrace mobile technology and marketing innovation among competitors and inventive brands like Amazon and Uber. Your customer’s journey is now mobile, and you need to meet them wherever they are and on whatever device they are using. According to Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s 2015 State of Marketing Report, 23 % of marketers don’t know which devices customers are using to access email. Yet we know that consumers spend an average of three hours on a mobile device every day.
As we discovered in our latest thought leadership Mobile eBook, brands can’t assume that customers already know how to engage on mobile. Instead, it’s important to use your marketing strategy to make it clear to your audience that they will benefit from engaging with your brand on mobile. Using this strategy, First Midwest Bank surpassed their goals with 35,000 new mobile clients in three months with nearly 10% tracked back to an SMS opt-in.
