Loyal users and loyal consumers are hard to acquire and even harder to retain.
Your Mobile Loyalty strategy should capitalize on the direct communication with the users' precious and most personal item, their smartphone (and/or other mobile devices).
Are you currently exploring the clear and wide targeting potential that Mobile Marketing and Advertising offers to your brand?
Here are some simple rules so as to make the most out of your mobile efforts.
1. Reach users in their context
Your advertising message, your communication effort, your brand-customer relationship: their success is dependent on timing and generally context.
Prompt customers to enjoy an activity, consume a product, get information at the time and place that is most convenient and related to them.
Targeted advertising based on behavioral and geolocation data is an innovative way of engaging customers.
Q: What is my target audience and the best time to reach them if I have a summer offer on my products?
A: Let's assume the product is a lager beer that is mostly consumed by men of all ages. A great way to engage mobile users this summer is to re-target iOS and Android devices, based on behavioral data, and communicate a time-sensitive offer, with the possibility to discover where they can enjoy their drink tonight with friends.
Using geolocation data, users are directed to an interactive map, showing all nearby locations where they can redeem the offer.
2. Create a content editorial
Yes, content is king. But what we mean by content here are all the messages (including their frequency, relevance and type) delivered as either push notifications or in-app messages. User engagement is not only a matter of wonderful imagery, but also the unique value of obtaining an action-driven communication channel via your loyalty app or your advertising campaigns.
Planning your messages ahead and creatinga solid timeline,customisedto each targeted "persona" that is connected to a pool of users you want to target, can help you see the big picture, avoid spamming and monitor better cost and expected ROI.
Q: What messages do I communicate to my mobile users, though which medium and how often?
A: Let's assume you are a marketer working at a major bank and you are responsible for a mobile loyalty app. A great way to engage my app users this summer is to create a timeline of push notifications and in-app actions, all focused and personalized to users' past behavior and profile. Behavior can be translated into collection and redemption of loyalty points, focus can be translated into the fulfilment of users' needs (offers on vacation packages, travel services etc.), and personalization is the combination of the before mentioned, delivered to users in a regular (pre-defined) basis.
3. Use interactive media
During summer, users are eager to capture happy moments, read, watch and have more spare time to "consume" content. There is no better time to provide a fun and unique experience to mobile users.
You can capitalize on one-click actions that lead to:
Q: What features would engage my users?
A: Let's assume you work at a travel agency, and aim to boost autumn sales. You already have partnered with airline companies, so as to offer value to my loyal and new customers and incentivize bookings. Your goal is to communicate offers in an easy, fun way.
You can use a flow of interstitials that guide users though one-click action buttons and engaging visuals. Users see pictures of wonderful destinations, click on their favorite one and discover a small insight related to that place. With just another click, they are guided to mobile-optimized website, where they can book directly their tickets to that destination. This is a brand-aligned experience, where it is easy to communicate specific deals through an interactive, rich-media campaign.
With these tips, you can engage your customers who are mobile friendly users to be aware of yourr brand and how you can still engage and provide services to them.

Experience is becoming more important than the product itself.
What is experience?
It’s not a thing, it’s everything. It’s an embrace and an emotional ecosystem that requires purpose, thoughtfulness and mastery. More so, experience requires architecture and a supporting ecosystem to deliver more than features, utility or capability.
We must flip oureverydayapproach from brand-centricity to customer-centricity. Think beyond budgets, approvals and technology and creativity for the sake of technology and creativity. That’s what everybody else does.
As a leader or as someone fighting for change, either way, you have to break the shackles of fear, process and politics to inspire creativity and reward risk.
What can I do that I couldn’t do before?
How do you make me feel? What do you want me to feel?
How do you become an extension of me…an expression of what I do or what I want to do?
What brings us together and keeps me coming back to you? What’s our center of gravity?
What can we do together that I can’t do without you?
