Mobile marketing is the process of marketing performed on or through a mobile device. Considering the number of people that are connecting to the internet through their mobile devices, mobile marketing represents the newest development in online marketing. As such, its full potentials are yet to be realised. Although mobile marketing can be regarded as an upgrade of online marketing, there are certain peculiarities that need to be kept in mind. Since the mobile screens are much smaller compared to personal computers, marketing a product or service on mobile device s is much harder. The ads are more limited in terms of available space and marketers need to be much more creative and to the point in order to catch the users’ attention.
SMS and MMS marketing- All of us have sent SMS and MMS messages through our mobile phones and we are all familiar with what these terms mean. The difference between the two is that SMS are mostly text messages, while MMS include images, video or audio files. Using SMS or MMS messages as a way of marketing a product of service means that marketers send messages about certain kinds of promotions, discounts, events etc. to customers who have opted in to receive these messages. Just like with e-mail marketing, sending unsolicited messages is considered as spam and is not advisable to use. In comparison to e-mail marketing, this kind of marketing is more effective because we all carry our phones with us all the time and we open personal messages much faster and sooner than e-mail messages. Research shows that most people read their phone messages within five minutes of receiving them.
Application marketing- The boom of mobile applications has created another mode of marketing. Since many users are installing and using various applications, advertising through a mobile application is also an easy and effective way to reach your customers. Most applications have an in-built push notifications feature that marketers can use to send customers news, promotions, discounts etc. If you are a business, the application itself is a form of promoting your brand and the products or services that you offer.
Game mobile marketing simply refers to showing ads while a user is playing a game on their mobile device. This can be very effective since many users, especially young ones, are using their mobile phones to play games.
Mobile websites marketing- This form of advertising occurs when users are looking for information on certain websites and ads show on the website the user is browsing. That is why having a mobile website is essential if you want your website to be able to show ads.
Paid search mobile marketing- Similar to advertising through Google on a PC, ads can be placed above the organic search results and be available to users as they are searching products or services on Google through their mobile devices.
The above list is not exhaustive as there are additional ways to use mobile marketing for your business. If you need help, our mobile marketing specialists can help you achieve your desired goals and objectives. Keep in mind that you have to mobilize your business if you want to keep up with the latest trends.

Before I tell you why and how to create your Google+ business page let me explain briefly what Google plus is.
Google+ is Google’s most recently developed social network site. Many consider it as an attempt of Google to compete with the domination of Facebook on the social media scene. It was launched in June 2011, at first on an invitation only basis, and in September 2011 it was made accessible to everyone. Just like the other social networks, it is free to use and everyone can create a personal profile, a business page or both. Since its launch, Google+ sparked much interest amongst Google users and by now it has around 343 million active users. Since it is a relatively young network site, its potentials remain to be seen as Google announced that many new features are yet to be developed.
If you are a business, probably you already have pages on the other social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. Creating a Google+ business page too will help you increase your online presence even more since potential clients can have additional site to access you from. Other important benefits from creating your business page on Google+ are the following:
First of all, it has new features unavailable on the other social network sites. One of these is the option named Circles. This means that you can target your updates or messages to specific people within your followers. For instance you can create separate circles for your employees, customers, VIP clients, partners, users by specific location etc.
Google’s+ option for video chats though the hangout option is also a new great feature which allows you to establish a more direct interaction with your clients.
And finally your business Google + page will make your business more visible on the Google search results. Now, the existence of Google+ account is considered as another ranking factor that the Google search engine uses. This in turn will lead to increased traffic to your website and increased click through rate (CTR). In other words, if you don’t have Google+ account, your Google search ranking may decrease.
In order to create a business page, first you need to have a personal profile on Google+ which is created from an accessible Gmail account. From the personal profile page, you click on more/pages on the left hand side and then click create page. After you click on create page, pick your business category:
Within these main categories, you can choose a subcategory which describes your business more specifically.
Afterwards, just follow the steps and add your business name, website, subcategory and content age level.
Next, you can enter your profile photo and additional contact information about your business. For businesses, it is advisable to put their logo as their profile picture in order for users to be able to recognise you.
Then connect your Google+ page with your website. One last thing is to make sure you use the Google+ 1 button in order to allow users to share and recommend your website to their followers.
After you are done with creating and editing your page and you are satisfied with the way it looks, you can share it in the updates feed and let the world know about it.
