With Mozeo’s scheduled text blasting service, you have an even greater power of automation right at your fingertips. With this feature, you can schedule exactly when you want your text blasts sent to your followers. This can either be for one specific date and time, or you can set a pattern for regular blasting.
For example, if you have a day of the week that is always the slowest in terms of sales, you can schedule promotion text blasts to be sent out weekly on that day. This way, you can drive more traffic to your business and increase sales. Automating your text blasts provides greater ease and convenience, and it allows you to plan your mobile marketing strategy well in advance.
The Mozeo online widget is an optimal way for your business or organization to build your mobile database directly from your website or facebook fan page. By embedding our easy-to-use widget into your site, your followers can simply fill out a short form providing their mobile number and contact information. From there, they are automatically added to your contact list in the Mozeo account center. Any duplicates (e.g. customers already in your database who also sign up through the widget) are automatically scrapped, saving you time and money with your texting strategy.
By driving traffic to your website, you consequently are building a powerful mobile database, as your customers will fill out the simple form to receive updates from your company. Not only that, by adding the FBML app to your facebook fan page, our widget can be plugged right in. By employing the power of the Mozeo widget, your business or organization can combine online and text marketing to reach your customers in the most effective way possible.
To get started with your own widget, log into your Mozeo account center. In the left hand navigation click on View Contacts. Once there, you will notice a link at the top called Website Widget.
Mozeo offers texting services starting at a pay-as-you-go rate of seven cents per message. Though volume pricing is offered for those who pay monthly, it is important to realize that for seven cents, you’re getting a lot more than the simple ability to send a text message.
The cornerstone of our services is the easy-to-use online portal. This clean-cut web-based portal is the hub of your mobile marketing plan. With this system, you can add mobile contacts, schedule text blasts, and group your contacts so you can tailor specific messages to your different market segments. The portal also allows you to track your texting statistics in real time. With this information, you can track your usage, your keyword responses, and your opt-outs. As a result, you can constantly be evaluating the effectiveness of your mobile marketing strategy.
Additionally, the Mozeo staff is constantly available for assistance. For starters, we will upload any preexisting mobile numbers that you may have into your database for you to get started. From there, we are always available by phone or e-mail to answer any questions you may have or to brainstorm marketing ideas that will work best for your company.
With text services, an online system that does it all, and quality customer service, seven cents really does go a long way. Other texting companies may try to undercut on price, but they will never undercut on the true value of what seven cents can do for you with Mozeo.
Using mobile keywords is a great way to make your marketing strategy as effective as possible. Mobile keywords are unique, identifying words that let you interact with your customers. When someone texts in a keyword to your short-code number, their contact information can be automatically added to your database.
Multiple keywords can be used for different purposes. You may want unique keywords for customers looking for breaking news updates (e.g. text ALERT to #####), for those looking for information on upcoming promotions (text PROMO to #####), or for those who just want general information (text INFO to #####). With keywords, your customers are truly interacting with your company through their mobile phones. In turn, your company has the opportunity to send directed marketing messages to your loyal followers.
Also, mobile keywords can be used by your company to evaluate how effective your marketing plan is at reaching your publics. For example, say you launch a marketing campaign and advertise on television, on the radio, in the newspaper, and on your website. By integrating mobile keywords in your plan, you can have people text in to a keyword to receive more information. With a slightly different keyword on each medium (such as: INFO1, INFO2, INFO3, and INFO4), you can track in real time how many hits you receive on each keyword. If you notice that your television keyword is receiving a large volume of hits and your newspaper keyword barely receives any, you may want to reallocate your marketing dollars.
The Mozeo online portal allows you to fully automate and manage your keyword strategy. Your contacts are automatically added to the portal when they text in your keyword, and with the new grouping feature, you can sort your contacts according to different keywords. From there, you can send messages just to a specific group, giving you more precise control of your mobile messaging than ever before.
Mobile marketing, aside from being cutting-edge and extremely effective, can help businesses become environmentally friendly. Traditional marketing was all about paper. In order to spread a message, businesses had no choice but to rely on it. By taking out ad space in newspapers, distributing flyers, publishing promotional literature, or even exchanging business cards, paper products were often the exclusive vehicle of communication.
Paper continues to be an integral component for many businesses and their marketing plans. Consider, though, some facts, according to the EPA. Every year, Americans consume 85 million tons of paper and paperboard. Also, the average U.S. office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper annually. This equates to 4 million tons of copy paper consumed by U.S. office workers alone every year.
Inevitably, such a high consumption of paper leads to an incredible amount of unnecessary waste. Businesses across the country have been taking steps to become “greener,” and one simple solution is not only eco-friendly, but it also can be a great addition to your marketing strategy.
By turning to mobile marketing, unnecessary waste is eliminated since the method of communication isn’t on paper – it’s on the mobile phone. Mobile marketing is direct as direct marketing gets, since you’re reaching your customers instantaneously, no matter where they are. All the while, your company can be proud that it’s doing its part in helping the environment by not relying on unnecessary waste. By partnering with a mobile marketing firm like Mozeo, you can take a truly green approach to marketing while moving your business strategy into the 21st century.
