Though application and mobile web penetration is growing rapidly, SMS still rules the day from a reach perspective. Cost-wise, SMS campaigns are typically charged on a per-message basis with a pricing table that decreases with volume.
SMS is ideal for location based marketing. The location-based service opt-in requirement fits perfectly with existing SMS opt-in requirements. The Mobile Marketing Association guidelines are very clear when it comes to SMS marketing. Customers must elect to receive SMS messages via an opt-in and be able to cancel at any time. Bridging Points Media facilitates robust Bulk SMS Broadcast Service.
SMS (Short Messaging Service) to MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service), Bridging Points Media facilitates all. In MMS Marketing, apart from a plain text message clients can include audio, video, colour and animation. Regular text messages are limited to 160 characters whereas multimedia messages allow for almost unlimited text characters and a much greater allowance when it comes to size. MMS messages have a strong potential to go viral.
Location Based SMS (LBS)is all about delivering the right message to the right people in the perfect place and at the perfect time for the micro-moment. LBS comes into play to target the mobile users within a certain geographic area to increase effectiveness and reduce SMS waste. This geographic area is called a ‘geofence’ and SMSes are served only within that area. Once the pin codes are determined and the radius around those pin codes are determined – location based SMS can be easily sent.
Geo-Fencing is a fence defining parameter around a certain geographic point. When geo-fencing is deployed it activates triggers when customers or their smart devices enter this boundary or fenced area.
Geo-Conquesting is the use of a geo-fence to draw customers away from competition. This means that instead of geo-fencing around one’s own store the business geo-fences around a competition store and uses it to drag potential customers to its own store.
The more targeted an ad campaign is, the more effective it will be – location based marketing is therefore very effective. SMS marketing is the most personal and direct form of communication to reach out to the customers.
