Business Leaders Plan to Increase Mobile Marketing Spending in 2014

Now that 2013 is coming to a close, a recent survey from StrongView reveals the marketing spending plans of 387 North American business leaders for the new year.

Most business leaders shared that digital media marketing for their company will be increased in the upcoming year.  Over 52 percent want to increase the amount of money spent on e-mail marketing campaigns.  They also plan to spend more money promoting their brand through Social media (46 percent), SEO (41 percent), and online display ads (31 percent) in 2014.

In fact, 32 percent of business leaders want to expand their marketing efforts through mobile devices.  Mobile ad spending has recently been predicted to outpace the amount of money spent on radio and magazine ads by 2016.  This trend is already evident in the StrongView survey, for more business leaders plan to cut rather than expand ad spending in radio/TV, print, and direct mail.

SMS text interaction helps collegiate enrollment directors engage with students

In our ongoing discussions with higher education administrators in admissions departments around the country, the same message reverberates from staff members at schools of all sizes; the challenge is greater than ever to successfully attract, recruit, and retain students on their respective campuses.

Whether it’s the ongoing turbulent economic landscape, continuing demographic shifts, or the greater use of technology to provide online alternatives to individuals seeking college degrees, it’s a consistent challenge facing those responsible for enrollment management at schools nationally. 

If there is one common denominator for (virtually) every individual on campus, or for the future students that these educational professionals are eying to become the newest members of the next freshman class, it’s a mobile phone. 

Ever see a student without one?

There’s not a better way to disseminate a specific marketing message than directly to the desired recipient, no matter where they are. 

Utilizing options for text messaging or downloading apps on a smartphone provided an easy entree for ats Mobile to build out a SMS text-based engine that disseminates questions and answers to build towards a cumulative point total, while allowing its client universities to engage their brand with a host of targeted groups including prospective and current students, and alumni.

The SMS text game titled U-Mobile combines the options for learning, information gathering, and quizzing, wrapped up into the fun of playing an interactive mobile scavenger hunt with a prize, such as a steep discount at the bookstore, attached as an incentive. 

Compete, have fun, win, and connect.  It all adds up to a unique way to brand your school, help achieve your department goals, and it’s wrapped around a mobile game.

Entrants to any U-Mobile event are listed in the real time program dashboard allowing schools to simply log in to know who is interacting and by date/time, and by securing opt-in permission from a consumer can simultaneously send broadcast text messages to all members of a specific list from the same dashboard.
