Smartphone Users: Getting the Horse to the water… and making it drink!

A recent survey shows that 80% of internet users own a smartphone and 51% of the time spent by people on social media is through mobile devices. Users are creating a large digital footprint today and businesses have taken cognizance of the same. While the marketing strategy does seem to have gone mobile, few understand the needs and behavior of the mobile users and hence, find it challenging to make a right pitch. If one wants to maximize their reach through mobile based marketing, one needsto understand the behavior of mobile users.

Analyze mobile users’ behavior

  • Mobile users are short on time and multi-tasking. They want to have a seamless experience regardless of what they are using their mobile for.
  • Most users lose patience, especially when it comes to holding the lineor communicating with the call center agents. So, you need to convey a relevant message quickly and drive your customers to act Now!
  • Mobile users are active 24 x 7 and are looking for instant gratification. Making the most of this time can result in better conversion rate.

The marketing strategists have channelized the changing behavior of smartphone users through innovative technologies like chatbot and in-call advertising. Customers do not want to spend time understanding irrelevant stuff or listening to music. They would be happier if you offered a service/product they were looking for…. Or even better, they haven’t thought of!
