Wake up business owners. Its 2011 and mobile marketing is no longer optional. Customers are addicted to mobile devices and if your products and services, or your business isn’t, you’re totally missing the boat.
If you don’t believe us, you should read the incredible 600 page report by none other than Morgan Stanley because on the last page, it kind of said it all… Some companies are about to win big in mobile, while others will just wonder what happened.
But that doesn’t have to be you. And what we’re about to share with you should open your eyes to the possibilities that await you and your business because your customers are already mobile. So what is your excuse for making them wait?
You see there are more mobile phones on the planet than TV’s, cars, computers or even credit card. They’re also more mobile phones in the world then there are English words in the Oxford dictionary. And yet, there’s not a single word that explains why a business would wait to go mobile.
Here are some interesting statistics:
- According to Nielsen, we text on our phones a lot more than we talk
- According to Pew Research 65% of people sleep with their phones, either in the bed right with them or right next to the bed.
- A Mashable article recently reported that between 6 and 10% of people felt it perfectly okay to text while having sex.
- A whopping 81% of Americans admit to texting while driving, yet 91% say that they feel a mobile phone makes him feel safer.
- And even though 24% of people under 25 love to text while in the bathroom, there are two fold as many people in the world that have a mobile phone as compared to the billions and billions of people that don’t yet even have a toilet.
No matter how you look at it, if you have a business, a product or service these mobile statistics suggest only one thing. It’s time to either text, or “get off the pot”.
For many businesses, the mobile landscape might as well be a scene from the Twilight Zone. Imagine business owners looking out over a recently bulldozed lot. It’s a perfect spot for a shopping mall. But they’re just standing there curiously deciding if it’s a wise decision. Yet, at the same time there are acres and acres of people… a massive crowd of customers just waiting for the stores to be built.
That’s right, your customers are there with credit cards in hand and they’re waiting for your store. They’re waiting for your products. They’re waiting for your services. They’re waiting for you, the business owner, the merchant or the entrepreneur to show up. I mean how crazy must you be to not see the absurdity of the situation.
On an annual basis, companies like eBay, Amazon and many others are already raking in billions of dollars from mobile sales. Yes, I’m saying billions with a “B” and yet within the same time frame we hear clients and people tell us that “although people love their mobile phones, it’ll be a while before there are enough people buying to make m-commerce viable”. Let me ask the question, “How many billions does it take before something becomes viable”? The opportunity with mobile is not just around the corner. It’s staring you square in the face.
Mobile devices have already changed the way we live. There’s no device on the planet which supersedes the intimate relationship that we have with our mobile phones. These devices have become our companions, our assistants, our trainers, our planners, our psychologists, our source for music, news, books, research, shopping, social connection and entertainment. And now they can become your personal cash register.
What lies ahead will be nothing short of science-fiction in real time; a robust mobile revolution in digital tools, toys and m-commerce. It’s already upon us and is literally shaping our perceptions of the world and our behavior within it. These always on, hyper-connected, location aware, digital extensions of ourselves are creating a new landscape so rich with opportunity for business owners and entrepreneurs, it makes the early days of the Internet seem like a high school science fair project.
So as you can see, people are using their mobile phone, they’re looking for businesses like yours and this is an incredible opportunity for you to get in on the ground floor. And if nothing else has caught your attention, read this carefully. Across all age ranges, the likelihood that someone will buy on a mobile device is over three times higher than when sitting in front of their computer. The buyers are there, your customers are waiting with credit card in hand.
As Morgan Stanley said, “Rapid ramp of the mobile Internet will be a boon to consumers and some companies will likely win big… potentially very big, while many will wonder what just happened”. And they’re talking about big businesses, small businesses, entrepreneurs, mom-and-pop shops, and most importantly… YOUR BUSINESS.
You can’t afford to just sit on the sideline and wonder what happened. There’s so much more, but all we can say is this, “Mobile is no longer optional. If you’re not doing mobile marketing in 2011, you’re really, really losing out.”
Your customers are mobile, they’re addicted to the devices and they’re looking for your product and services. And if they can’t find you… they’re going to go to your competitors. So call us today and find out how we can help get you started in mobile marketing.
