leave a comment »

O.k so you have a SMS campaign and you are wondering how do I build a SMS data base who I can send messages too? Great questions and probably the most important one you can ask.

1. Add a sign up form to your website. You have web traffic and all of those visitors should be signing up for your Mobile Alerts. You’ll need to offer something to get users to sign up. Offer VIP announcements, you get the latest breaking news 1st. Click here to see an example of a mobile sign up form

2. POS, when someone is checking out or paying for an item offer to enter them into your Mobile Data Base.

3. Social Networking. It’s free and it’s where everyone is at online. Create a Facebook group, add it to your profile and your staffs. Check out this feature, you’re going to love the ability to update multiple Social Networking sites all from one location click here Qittle Social Networking Service

4. Staff buy in! This has got to be one of the most important things at your company. You have to get your staff to realize this is a part of your businesses success and you need everyone talking it up. Think Grassroots effort.

5. Email marketing, if you have a good email list and send out emails this is a great way to build your mobile list. Place your mobile sign up form right in the email or just have a text call to action. Text Bonos to 32075 to save

6. On your Business card. Offer something via your mobile data base. Free day pass to the Aspen Club and Spa or a free drink with the purchase of a meal.

7. On all marketing collateral. This is effective for 2 reasons. First to build your mobile data base. Second track the effectiveness of those marketing spends. Be more efficient in this environment.

8. Discounts via SMS. Stop offering discounts without opt in. Make SMS the way people redeem their discount.

9. Contests, create something exciting and really go all in. Text Contest to win …… This is highly effective as people will talk it up to friends making it viral. Get word of mouth working for you.

10. Be Patient!!! This is a long tail strategy, not an over night success. Go into Mobile knowing it’s going to take time but having an effective in house data base will put you far ahead of the competition and save you money in the long run on marketing.
