5 tips to improve the conversion of your mobile marketing campaign

1.     Since every channel has its own limitations, you need to be creative with your message, but even more importantly be short and concise. Make sure everyone will instantly understand what your message is. Then think about if your key message needs some extension. For example, you can extent your SMS messages with a mobile landing page, so you can share rich content.

  • Use one single CTA
  • Avoid distracting navigation links
  • Show the CTA above the fold
  • Use color contrast to make the call-to-action stand out
  • Write a descriptive CTA (not: “next, shop, continue”) but: “take quiz, view mattresses, buy now”
  • Make CTA’s benefit oriented (what’s in it for me?)

So your message needs to stand out, be relevant and be personal. There are several ways to successfully personalise a message, using the things you know about your customer.

Also consider adding your own name as signature and send your message from a personal account to make it all look personalised.
