Leveraging Mobile Marketing to Strengthen Customer Relationships in a Cookie-less Future


    People are more obsessed than ever with their mobile devices today. This obsession presents marketers and companies with unique opportunities, especially when relationship marketing replaces third-party marketing as the dominant marketing paradigm.

    People often check their smartphones first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. Mobile has become an inseparable extension of today’s consumer and, therefore, has become critical to relationship marketing.

    Marketing campaigns, appointment reminders, promotional codes, bank alerts, and delivery notifications are common types of A2P messaging. Many big businesses, including banking, retail, telecommunications, and healthcare, have implemented A2P technology to communicate with consumers. It’s a trend that’s quickly growing.

    Here are four strategies for utilizing mobile marketing to build lasting relationships with consumers.

    Establish a Value Exchange

    Businesses must obtain permission to engage with their audience and discover their genuine interests before engaging in any marketing. For a consumer to feel that there is a compelling reason to access that value by signing up for a loyalty program, an organization must first define its value proposition. This is known as making a “value exchange,” which can be done for convenience, information updates, better service, exclusive access to content, and much more.

    The time has come for a brand to communicate its value after it has been set. Mobile expands customer awareness and makes signup possible outside of the laptop, widening the net to include any other environment. This is where mobile plays a significant role. This could involve adding a short code or QR code on billboards, store windows, or TV to encourage customers to interact with the business via their mobile devices. In a nutshell, mobile enables limitless flexibility to open the door to value in every setting.

    Combining Marketing and Loyalty

    The idea of communication channels existing outside of silos is frequently talked about. And for a good reason—customers’ situations may alter due to changes in their geography, preferences, disposable money, or interactions with a competitor business. A customer is not automatically considered an advocate or a particular brand is their preferred brand just because they have signed up for a loyalty program.

    In light of this, it is crucial for businesses to actively seek out consumer feedback, pay attention to their preferences, and stay in touch with them. Mobile provides the opportunity to gather more information, interact with all customers, and promote contextual real-time engagements. Brands can effectively drive consumer loyalty and capitalize on the advantages of this environment by utilizing mobile apps.

    Some of the most valued consumers are those that actively choose to have a closer relationship with a brand by downloading an enterprise app and choosing to receive communications from that brand. They need to be cared for and nurtured, and a loyalty program is ideal for doing just that.

    Become a Customer Expert

    Marketers must have quick access to critical data sources and the appropriate tools to act on that data at scale if they want to engage with customers efficiently.

    With handcuffs placed on past data assets due to more data-conscious consumers and regulations, mobile apps can provide a unique setting where businesses can learn a lot about their customers’ behaviors. Businesses can better understand their customers by using the insights provided by mobile applications, which include information on customer frequency, pages visited, products and services clicked on, and many other things. This makes it possible to serve them in the best way possible.

    Relationship Mobile Marketing

    In the digital age, the value of mobile is enormous. Consumers engage with a brand through various digital touchpoints that are rarely integrated. However, since most smart devices have access to browsers, SMS, applications, email, and social media, it is nearly always possible to access these channels via mobile. Because of this, brands can synchronize data and use it to fuel highly targeted and seamless customer experiences across all touchpoints by making mobile the focal point of any digital communication strategy.

    Relationship marketing enables brands and organizations to understand their customers easily, activate insights, and effectively offer personalized experiences across all channels and touchpoints by bridging the gap between data and contextual interaction. Mobile applications provide relevant and timely messaging so seamlessly is essential for educating customers, reducing friction, increasing purchase consideration, and forging deeper relationships.
