What We Know About Mobile Marketing in 2015


With the rapidly evolving nature of the mobile industry, sometimes it’s important for us to step back, take a breath and evaluate what we know to be true about the industry as it exists and how that affects our marketing plans.

Here are a few things that we know about mobile marketing in 2015, and some things that we can infer about it in coming years:

Advertising on web pages specifically meant for access by mobile devices is also an option. The Mobile Marketing Association provides a set of guidelines and standards that give the recommended format of ads, presentation, and metrics used in reporting. Google, Yahoo, and other major mobile content providers have been selling advertising placement on their properties for years already as of the time of this writing. Advertising networks focused on mobile properties, SMS resellers and advertisers are also available. Additionally, web forms on web pages can be used to integrate with mobile texting sources for reminders about meetings, seminars and other important events that assume users are not always at their computers. In addition Mobile websites are another aspect of mobile web marketing and can be a tool than can used to help make purchasing goods and services easier as well as create better communication opportunities between trade.

the business world. But today, thanks to the rise of smart phones, mobile marketing is for everyone, from young teenagers to retired adults. This means that marketers have much more room for creativity with their messages and targeting than ever before.
• Mobile is the usage leader now, and it’s only going to get bigger. The last several years have seen a consistent rise in the percentage of people who primarily browse the internet through mobile websites and apps. People are also doing most of their communications on mobile phones through texting, calling or messaging apps. That trend isn’t going to change any time soon.
• Mobile is the leader in conversions as well. About 80 percent of the conversions that happen on smartphones occur within a period of about five hours. This is a much faster rate than any other platform. This is likely because of the ways that people use mobile searches.
• Mobile is cost efficient. Text messaging, push notifications, mobile app management and more are all extremely cost-effective tools that can help you reach out to a wider pool of customers. It has the potential to produce higher rates of returns for your advertising campaign at a low cost.
• Mobile messages are more likely to be opened. Your brand can get higher exposure through mobile marketing because people are much more likely to open text messages or push notifications than they are other forms of marketing messages.

About Thomas von Ahn

With more than 30 years of experience in B2B sales across various industries, Thomas has unique insight into both the offline and online sales sphere. It was during his time in the trenches that Thomas noticed a recurring theme: Though business owners are knowledgeable about their craft or trade, they often struggle to market and sell to their prospects. This realization is what prompted Thomas and his now business partner, Christine, to bring Viral Solutions to life. Since starting the company, Thomas has been able to assist countless business owners in developing a solid marketing plan based upon sound marketing strategy, then assigning the marketing tactics to a team of talented employees, and, finally, watching those actions unfold—his true passion.

Though Viral Solutions is on Thomas’ mind 24/7, he does occasionally take a break to cheer on the Green Bay Packers and enjoy his adopted home of Wisconsin. Much of his family also works at Viral Solutions, and this closeness with family and employees is the cornerstone of the Viral Solutions culture.
