Pages: how we supercharge SMS

Build visually engaging mobile landing pages from a simple text message.

Mobile marketing is a growth area with people using their phones to research, select, purchase and recommend products in larger numbers than ever. Creating the right mobile environment for your business is crucial to keeping up with your competitors.  

The Mobile Marketing Cloud is a robust set of tools to help you deliver real value from your marketing efforts. Alongside a host of omnichannel features, Pages, one of our SMS products, gives you the ability to create feature-rich, content-led mobile landing pages designed to engage and encourage customers to take action. Here’s how to get started with Pages. 

Why is mobile so important?

Africa is an exceptionally mobile-savvy country. GSMA Intelligence’s report showed mobile phone subscribers stood at 46 per cent in Sub-Saharan Africa, while smartphone adoption was at 64 per cent.

The report also indicated that there will be an additional 400 million new mobile subscribers by 2025, most of whom will be from frontier markets in the Asia Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Those numbers tell you that mobile is a significant growth area, and mobile marketing strategies will only become more critical in the coming years. 

So getting your mobile marketing right has never been more important, and making your marketing mobile-friendly is a big part of the puzzle. Thankfully, it’s never been easier to deliver rich multimedia experiences to your database of current and potential customers.
