from social networks and

review sites as well as word of mouth, for making

purchase decisions.

GPS chips are becoming a standard feature on mobile devices and

millions of users are now comfortable sharing their physical location on

social networks. Companies who can’t incorporate this into their campaigns stand to suffer

heavy losses.

70% of smartphone users will delete an email that’s not displaying correctly. With limited real estate, large walls of text are a no-no. Site design needs special attention. Pages and content have to be optimised for mobile. Flash has to be replaced by HTML5. You can’t rely on mouseover actions, because there is no mouseover on touch screens.

In the US, Ace Hardware uses weather forecasts to run localised mobile ad campaigns. So if snow is predicted in a particular location, customers living there will get ads for shovels.

Starbucks has experimented successfully with geofencing where alerts and

notifications can be pushed to phones only if they are in a predetermined area.

With more and more companies using

mobile as a marketing platform,

there’s a risk of customers and

users drowning in a sea of ads,

notifications and emails.

There’ll be too much noise, and many

people will tune out.

Throwing money at the platform won’t work.

You need to measure the impact of your mobile campaigns, test them

and keep tweaking them.

Tip

(23)

Don’t count

app downloads.

Measure usage.

Unless your app is used regularly, 300,000 downloads in a month is going to do nothing for your bottom line.

Monitor usage levels throughout the app’s existence, and not only during launch.

(24)

Be aware of

anonymous usage

A lot of mobile platforms and apps allow anonymous usage. This could affect your measurements, especially with multichannel reporting.

Take this into account, or use easy authentication features to retrieve user data.

(25)

Then scale it

up as your

understanding

increases.

25

Start small

Take one channel and one buyer journey and measure limited

events like open and click

through rates or mobile emails or sign ups. Use a small

number of metrics to start measuring.

(26)

inviqa.com inviqa.com

In your analytics software, use

comprehensive property descriptions and make event names self

explanatory.

For example, use “channel_id”

afkl]Y\g^É[Wa\Ê&<gfÌlmk]fme]ja[

or alphanumeric descriptors.

Use readable property

and event names

and the things that describe it are called properties

A user action is called an event

Measure across

multiple platforms

You can then replicate the user experience across other platforms, or concentrate your efforts on the top performing one.

Coca Cola’s “Chok! Chok! Chok!” campaign in Hong Kong is a textbook example of how to use mobile apps in marketing.

Before you sink money into an app

or site you need to have a clear idea

of your mobile strategy, and what it

is you’re trying to achieve.

If your service involves carrying

out regular tasks, an app

will help you.

If you want to provide information,

or get better visibility in search, a

responsive site is the way to go.
