Marketers have been declaring this “the Year of Mobile” every year since 2011. In truth, 2015 was the year mobile searches definitively and forever surpassed desktop web queries. But that doesn't mean we're done. That's not the signal for everyone to kick back and rest on their newly constructed mobile-friendly websites. There's a lot more coming for mobile users and for businesses hoping to reach their fair share of those users through mobile marketing. Marketers will continue to use mobile to improve and personalize the user experience and to generate and enhance customer loyalty in 2016 and beyond.
Why is Mobile Marketing Important to Your Business?
There are currently well over 600 million mobile internet users in the world and they're using their smartphones to search for, locate, get driving directions, click to call, recommend to others, redeem coupons, text friends, review businesses and, finally, to determine which ones they're going to do business with. Mobile marketing will only become more critical to the success of your business as this audience grows and the mobile experience broadens in scope and capability. You will be expected to come along.
Targeted SMS Campaigns
While approximately half of mobile search traffic results from local search inquiries, SMS text message campaigns can offer open rates as high as 95% and are generally read within 5 minutes of receipt. There is no faster or more direct way to reach current and potential customers, clients or patients than a well-crafted mobile campaign.
Ringless Voicemail – Hottest Marketing Tool Since Email!
An exciting new technology we call Ringless Voicemail allows you to drop a personal, goal-specific voice message directly into the mobile voicemail boxes of your targeted recipients without ever ringing their phones. An alert lets them know they have a new voicemail, and you get to speak directly to your customer or prospect and deliver your sales message personally. And you can be certain – no one ignores a voicemail!

When I started in this business I learned more about SEO and web design from David than from many of the online courses and marketing “gurus” because he was patient and generous with his time, and had a special gift for explaining complicated concepts in simple terms.
