Did you know that 80% of mobile time is spent using mobile apps? check out this info-graphic for some detailed info on how business’s use mobile marketing.
So if you haven’t yet developed a mobile app, do it immediately. However, with millions of apps crowding the mobile app landscape, you’ll have to come up with a truly nice and user-friendly app to encourage mobile users to engage with it repeatedly.
Do you think that’s not necessary and all you have to do is develop an app, and mobile users will queue up in masses to download and use it? Think again.
According to a report, more than 20% of mobile users wouldn’t use a mobile app a second time because they found it difficult to use.
That said, offering a great mobile app may not prove sufficient. You’ll have to offer it for free, because 75% of mobile users expect companies to provide free apps.

2. Send Mobile-Friendly Emails

With the total number of mobile email users in the world expected to reach over 2.2 billion by the end of this year, the importance of sending mobile-friendly emails can’t be stated enough.
However, the key here is mobile friendly. Keep your design and content simple and short so that your emails are displayed clearly on small screens.

3. Try SMS Marketing
