You have to think “out of the box”. That’s what everyone tells you. We hear that expression so often these days in marketing that it’s coming to the point where thinking “out of the box” means you’re thinking “in the box” since so many people are trying to do it. Let me pose a question: if everyone is thinking “out of the box”, then who’s doing the actual work?
You know, the people who actually have to develop the campaign, create the website landing pages, do the seamless integration with social media, develop the eye-catching graphics on both websites and print materials advertising your offer, creating the offer in itself, combining the text reminder system with the social media presence, making the QR codes and strategically placing them for optimal awareness, allowing the opt-in from a website rather than a straight mobile keyword, setting up the autoresponder messages, and making sure all the links go directly where you want to take the prospect, and so much more that goes into a successful mobile marketing and sms text message marketing campaign.
If you listen to all these “out of the boxers”, the conclusion most successful mobile marketers come to is NOT think outside the box, but to throw the whole box away! Be original. Develop a unique campaign and message and strive to exploit an aspect of your product that no one else is thinking about. Sounds “out of the box”, right? But in reality, it’s just being creative… and the best mobile marketing companies do that very well.
Unfortunately, your pickings are slim. The reason for this is that mobile marketing has become such a hot topic, everyone (regardless of talent or experience) wants to enter this sms text message marketing industry as a provider of services when based on their talent level, they have no business to do so at all. Few SMS solutions have really thought it all out. Sure they THINK they’ve developed an “out of the box” solution, but in reality it’s not. As you get more successful in your mobile marketing effects, you’ll see exactly what we mean by that.
Pick a SMS text message marketing platform that contains all the bells and whistles that make mobile marketing what it’s supposed to be. You can also start your own private label text message marketing program that makes a great white label where your branding becomes part of the solution. And for those of you who don’t believe you have what it takes to do mobile marketing on your own, there’s always creative mobile marketing companies that can create something for you that’ll impress for sure.
