Mobile Marketing 5 times more effective than online, study says.
A recent study by digital marketing research firm InsightExpress has concluded that mobile ad campaign norms were four-and-a-half to five times more effective than online norms.
“The Mobile InsightNorms study measured unaided awareness, aided awareness, ad awareness, message association, brand favorability and purchase intent. The study included a comparison of mobile media types and verticals to the effect of online advertising, and these findings continue to show the power of mobile as an advertising channel.” (Dan Butcher, Mobile Marketer)

“SMS campaigns generated increases of 5 percentage points for unaided awareness, 10 percentage points for aided awareness and 18 percentage points for ad awareness.”
Findings such as these really do support the notion that mobile, particularly SMS, will be around for a long time to come and that businesses looking to capitalise on all the marketing channels available to them should get a handle on it sooner rather than later or risk being left behind at the curve.

Is SMS marketing like social media? While there are similarities and both can be considered mobile marketing, the short answer is no. However when using a multi-channel marketing strategy it's important to know when to use a text message and when to use a social media channel.
One of the great advantages of SMS: it's completely trackable so you know exactly how your campaigns are engaging your opted in customers and clients. And if you’re a small business, operating in a specific geographical location, then that local knowledge can be invaluable in targeting your campaigns to a local audience.
Ever wondered why SMS text messages are limited to 160 characters? You might think it was an arbitrary choice but that wasn't the case. 160 characters was chosen based on scientific research (sort of). Read the history behind it and learn how you can send texts of up to 456 characters now.
It seems there's a new messaging app popping up every month. It's hard to keep track of them all, but it's also hard to ignore them if you're looking to use mobile marketing. When you've got limited marketing resources, should you spend them advertising on the latest IM app, or go with SMS marketing?
