Bulk SMS Marketing Tips

 

SMS is the marketing wave of the future. As smartphone usage increases and more people are conducting all sorts of business on their mobile devices, it’s a logical step to incorporate SMS into your overall marketing strategy. Ready to start?

Here are some effective tips to help you achieve the best results:

  • Always use a double opt-in procedure for SMS.
  • If you need to use text shorthand, then you need to rewrite your message.
  • Send SMS less frequently than your email marketing campaign (if you send emails three times a week, send SMS once).
  • Cross-promote your SMS campaign in your email marketing, website and social media pages.
  • Don’t include graphics or images, just text.
  • Streamline communication: “TXT STOP to unsubscribe” or “TXT HELP for customer support”.
  • Offer a gift for signing up – discount, free product sample, ebook.
  • Try including a scannable coupon that can be redeemed at your physical stores.
  • Include a forwarding option in your messages.
  • Encourage more subscribers by offering an immediate discount upon sign up.
  • Personalize each message.
  • Let your customers know that you’re not going to sell or exploit their cell number.
  • In your privacy statement, let your customers know that their mobile provider may charge them for sending and receiving texts.
  • Conduct a short SMS poll.
  • Keep your SMS marketing campaign focused on one message.
  • Don’t use all of the character spacing in your messages – you’re taking away space for customers to forward and include their own message.
  • Shortcodes needs to be easy and relevant to your company.

Creating The Perfect E-Commerce Website

When it comes to staying online, recent studies have shown that Indians tend to spend more time on the Web than any other people. It is, therefore no surprise that most businesses have taken their business online. In most cases, this is done with the help of eCommerce websites.

Creating The Perfect E-Commerce Website may seem to be a piece of cake, but in reality, it is something that should be carefully planned. After all, any glitch along the way can turn off your prospective client leaving you tons of abandoned carts.

What to Watch Out For

1. Speed

While design is of primary importance in coming up with an eCommerce website, it should be something that should not keep your website from loading fast. This means, you would have to do away with the flash animation and images that are too big. Two words for this – thumbnail and Light room. Remember, you only have a few seconds to capture your client’s attention. If you use up that time having your client wait for an image to load, they would end up jumping to another website.

2. Complete Information

Since your prospective clients would most likely have no time to call your hotline or chat with your sales people, you have to make sure that your site contains all the information that they might need. This would include product description, availability of the product, returns policy, shipping and payment policy, and even confidentiality of their information. Keep your terms simple and straightforward. No need to inundate them with things not related to their purchase.

3. Payment Gateway

With more than a handful of payment gateways available in the market, you would think that finding the one for your needs would be a breeze. This is not always the case, however; so you need to make sure that you read the terms set by the Indian Payment Gateway Provider. Some of the things that you would need to pay particular attention to would be the hidden fees, the contract term, and the penalty if ever you cancel your contract earlier than its intended end date. When it comes to the hidden fees, make sure you ask about the interchange and rate fluctuations. It is also a good idea to check if they have redundancy procedures in place should there be breaches in their system.

4. Checkout System

Not many business owners are aware but your checkout page could actually make or break your business. If it is too lengthy, you might bore your client. If it does not have a means for your client to edit their shopping cart, you could end up with a number of abandoned carts. The same is also true if your page is unclear about how much the client has to pay and what payment methods you are accepting. On the other hand, you can also make use of the checkout page in order to provide your clients with other products related to what they intend to purchase. This allows you to offer also those items that tend to be slow moving.

5. Be Shareable!

The power of social networking can be harnessed by eCommerce websites. For your product pages, make sure you have a prominent placing for social media buttons, to enable users to share products that they’re interested in. This will, obviously, help draw new users and potential buyers to the website.

GROW YOUR MOBILE APP RETENTION

In today’s seemingly endless world of mobile apps, even if you think you have a winner, get ready for your bubble to be burst fairly quickly. If you do bust through the app launch barrier and your app starts generating downloads, you should know that your work is just beginning.

Not only did you build it, but you need to inspire as many downloaders as possible to continue using it, hence retaining them as users which would turn into increased monetization opportunities. If you build it, they might come and download it. But, will they come again..and again….and again? That is your app’s main goal, maximizing your retention rate and converting those first time users into 2nd, 3rd, 4th time users and beyond.

Understanding App Store’s search algorithms is probably the biggest challenge in today’s mobile world. They are so dynamic and predictably keep changing.

Thanks to ASO tools that help us to test many challenges and find out what works and what doesn’t.

What I learned by helping many app publishers recently is that there is a clear correlation between having highly searched keyword in the name of an app and boosting your ranking for that difficult keyword.

Future of the ecommerce industry in India

E Commerce industry is on a boom right now and it will certainly grow. The reason being it is only a few of Indians living in metros and medium cities who have used e commerce but still there is a large population who have not touched it.
As many e commerce players are going app only that means the power of
e-commerce will come to the mobile owner and mobile  is reaching slowly into our far flung areas.
So as the reach increases and logistics will support more and more people will go to e commerce and the boom will continue.

There will be certainly a settling phase where the graph may go down but soon it will rise again and more and more people will join the ecommerce revolution.

Another point is more and more people are starting to sell online in India. that number is still too less what it really should be. So as these people grow, awareness will grow and sales will grow.

I hope logistics, payment systems and infrastructure in India evolves at the same rate to support this revolution.

Why is a mobile-friendly website important for an e-commerce business?

 

Most of the browsing today happens through phone and will continue to rise.  If you look around you will hardly find people owning personal laptops. The trend is to either buy a tab or suffice with smart phone.

Many companies block e-commerce sites during work hours.  People dont like to open laptops over week end.

So browsing happens mostly on mobiles and you would want to be there when someone is looking out.

What if you have a mobile App and not a website?
It so happens that people first visit the mobile site to check if the listings are interesting and then graduate on to App.

Which is preferred: Mobile website or responsive website ?

 

here’s no better, just different use cases. Mobile is a new medium which is connected to us 24/7.  You can treat it as another screen, or another mouse button.
Responsive design is not only for mobiles but for wide range of devices. It is the next stage of the web.
But personally, i prefer combination of both. But it is really hard to sustainable in commercial online environment.

Mobile website 

  • If you care about optimized user experience
  • If you care about performance and speed
  • If your goal is to target mobile users and actions

Responsive Website

  • If you care about uniformity
  • If you care about maintainability
  • If your goal is mainly to convey the same information universally

Our tool helps local business create mobile websites targeted specifically for mobile users.
Most of users use these sites to engage users on-the-go, such as restaurant menus, event agendas, or real-estate listings.

Looking for Web design company for your business?

The attributes to consider while selecting a web design company for your business:

  • Integrity & honesty
    It’s fundamental to your relationship that the web company have integrity. You need to trust that they’re behaving ethically and morally, since their guidance will affect not only your website but also your business. They also need honesty, so that you can believe and trust what they tell you.
  • Long-term partnership
    Your business website isn’t a fleeting thing; it’s a major player in your marketing efforts, and maybe even the operations of your business (for example, an ecommerce site). You should be seeking a long-term relationship with your web company, and they should be looking for the same thing. You don’t want a company that’s only looking for a quick buck.
  • Soft skills
    It’s not hard to find technical skills in a web company; they’re often started by technical people, and the teams usually contain technical people. What’s harder to find, yet critical to success, are the soft skills (people skills) such as communication, empathy, reliability, and responsibility.
  • Established
    If you’re serious about your website (and you are, right?), you want a web company that’s been around for a while, and is likely to stay in business for a while. We’ve talked to so many small businesses who had their sites developed by a friend, family member, part-timer, freelancer, or startup, then their contact disappears or gives up. We’ve rescued many projects from these situations. Save yourself the hassle and choose an established company from the start.
  • Focused on business results
    You have a website to accomplish business goals (selling in some way). The web company needs to understand this and create your site based on business goals, not on technology or trends. If the company seems more concerned about experimenting with technology than understanding your business, it’s not a good sign.
  • Project management
    Even small web projects require some project management, and it becomes increasingly important the more complex the project gets. The company needs to be competent at juggling multiple requirements and keeping the project on budget and on schedule. It may be hard to discover a company’s project management abilities, so ask a few of their clients who they managed their projects.
  • Speaks your language (at your level)
    Some web companies try to impress or intimidate with their techie language. Good companies won’t, because they want you to understand what they’re saying. They ask, “does that make sense?” after explaining something technical, and are willing to explain.
  • Well-connected
    Websites don’t exist in vacuum; they’re part of your broader marketing efforts. Most companiesdon’t have all the skills necessary to provide everything you’ll need as you grow (for example, photography, copywriting, SEO, email marketing, social media marketing, etc.). A well-connected company will be able to subcontract, partner with, or refer you to skills they don’t have.
  • Quick to reply
    You’d be surprised how many web companies take days (and sometimes weeks) to reply to prospects and clients when they email or call. Do you want to wait that long when you need help, while creating your site or maintaining it? Look for a company that replies relatively quickly; within one business day

Why do I need a website ?

A website is the most cost-effective marketing tool a small business has. It’s ‘open’ 24/7 to bring in new customers, tell them about your services, and turn them into buyers–even while you’re asleep.

Good websites also help ease customer support burdens through FAQ’s, driving directions, product instructions, online estimate/request forms, etc. Websites can do a lot more than look good.

You can also use your website to capture the emails of potential customers and build a mailing list with it. This mailing list allows you to better connect with your customers, gather feedback from them as well as update them on any upcoming promotions.

A small business required website for some of the reasons like

  1. Reason #1 – Online Presence
  2. Reason #2 – More customers
  3. Reason #3 – Business value
  4. Reason #4 – Influence
  5. Reason #5 – Time to show off
  6. Reason #6 – 24 hours Online
  7. Reason #7 – 24 hours Communication with customers
  8. Reason #8 – Online Marketing
  9. Reason #9 – Online Customer support

Best of all, websites don’t expire like ads do. They continue to bring in traffic over time.

Here are some tools to help you drive traffic to your website:

  • Google Adwords & Facebook Ads (Google Adwords allows you to find out exactly what keywords your target audience is searching for, Google Adwords + Facebook Ads allow you to create targeted ads on their respective platforms)
  • Google Analytics (A free analytics tool that allows you to track your website traffic and its various sources. This is especially useful in helping you identify your best performing campaigns and traffic sources, allowing you to focus on the most effective channels for your business.)
  • Social media (Establishing an online presence on social media helps drive traffic to your website as more and more consumers are spending time on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Snap-chat, etc.)
