Your customers and prospects are using smart phones.
Have you figured out how to connect with them using mobile social media marketing techniques?
Mobile is not as difficult as it may seem, especially when you access it with the social media tools you’re already familiar with.
With that in mind, I’ll reveal 5 ways you can use social media to integrate mobile marketing into your business.
#1: Connect With Prospects On LinkedIn Mobile
The LinkedIn mobile app brings a streamlined version of the desktop site to your smartphone or other mobile device. You’ll have access to all the key LinkedIn features, including updates, your profile, messages and groups.
From your LinkedIn home page, tap on your profile photo to access your profile screen to see who has viewed your profile recently. If someone has viewed your profile, it’s a good indication that they might be interested in hearing from you.
Could your business benefit from connecting to the 80% of online teens using social media?
In this article I explore how Sharpie has successfully garnered 89% market share with the aid of social media.
The Teen Market
Instagram is now the most popular photo-sharing site among teens age 12-17. One million of them visited the site last July alone.
Add to that the 93% of social media–using teens who have a Facebook account (according to Pew Internet research), and the 16% who use Twitter (a figure that has doubled in recent years), and you’ve got a lot of teenage eyeballs.
But to connect with a teen target market, you must do more than simply have a presence on the sites they use. You must also pay attention to what motivates and inspires them.
Take some tips from permanent marker manufacturer Sharpie. Their successful 2012 Back to School campaign helped grow their market share to 89% of their category through a savvy understanding of how teens use social media.
