NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With mobile continually influencing consumer purchasing behavior, small businesses have been quick to learn how a solid mobile marketing strategy can have a significant impact on their business.
In her latest article posted to PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit, Kristen Gramigna, Chief Marketing Officer for BluePay, identifies mobile payments as one affordable tool that small businesses should leverage in their marketing strategy. To build your brand and set you apart from your competition:
Demonstrate the value of mobile convenience. Consider the many ways that technology improves the overall customer experience and transform those into powerful marketing messages. Are you equipping multiple staff members with the ability to process customer payments on their mobile devices? If so, consider how this small convenience can add up to a memorable marketing message that can help to boost your brand's value.
Deliver customized mobile offers. Gramigna suggests you review past purchasing transactions to develop a sense for what your mobile customers buy, when they buy it and at what price point they pay. Use this information to present relevant offers to your customers and by marketing to them on the mobile device they'll also use to purchase, you're improving the likelihood that they will see your message and then redeem your offer.
Deploy a loyalty program. With many mobile payment providers now including the ability to integrate loyalty programs and automatic tracking of the rewards, mobile payments can be a critical component to a rewards program that drives intended purchase behavior.
