When we talk about mobile marketing, the first thing that comes to mind is consumers constantly talking, texting, and app-ing via their anytime-anywhere devices.
But that is only a part of mobile’s story and portrays only half of mobile’s tremendous marketing potential.
Here’s the funny thing. In addition to all the new fangled uses of smartphones, these phones are actually being used to make phone calls. (Crazy huh?)
Busy moms, dads, professionals click-to-call so they can do things on the go. So what does that mean to you and your business?
It means these mobile users will be valuable when they call your business because you get them at the right time and right place to increase revenue.
Let’s take a moment and think how valuable these mobile callers and why. Mobile is an anytime-anywhere device that provides your business with new ways to create, develop, and sustain ROI-rich relationships. Here’s why Nacho Libre thinks mobile callers are number 1.
