Mobile Marketing PlatformTelenity introduces new mobile marketing platform

Telenity, a provider of communications solutions, has launched a new mobile marketing platform called Canvas SmartLBA. The platform is designed to offer new marketing opportunities to mobile network operators and brand owners. Mobile marketing has become a very important aspect of the business world due to the rapid adoption of mobile technology among consumers. Telenity believes that its new mobile marketing platform will help companies reach out to mobile consumers and engage with them in a more effective way.

Platform includes location-based features

Canvas SmartLBA allows users to collect real-time information and make use of the data to help formulate effective marketing strategies. Users can use this information to expand their reach to a new demographic of consumers. This data can also be effective in better understanding the trends that are emerging in particular markets. The platform has location-based features with built-in consent management functionality, making it easier for users to control opt-ins to location-based marketing programs and protect the information of consumers.

Marketing revenues to reach new heights by 2016

Telenity predicts that mobile marketing revenues will reach $24 billion by 2016, suggesting that the advertising world is slated for major growth in the coming years. Revenues are likely to grow because of the number of people that are making use of smart phones and tablets. Telenity believes that its new platform can help businesses see strong revenue gains through their mobile marketing campaigns. Such campaigns will need to be finely crafted, however, in order for these businesses to see any pronounced success.

Security continues to be a major issue for consumers

Mobile marketing has proven successful for many companies in the past. Issues regarding security have, however, derailed several marketing campaigns that aimed to engage mobile consumers. These campaigns tend to collect personal information from consumers, a practice that has been receiving a great deal of criticism lately. Marketing platforms that offer security features that help protect this information are becoming more popular due to the rising demand for protection coming from consumers.

Geolocation data increases its importance in targeted mobile marketing

Geolocation Data Mobile MarketingReal time information about consumer location are playing a larger part in advertising over smartphones.

As smartphones and tablets continue to make their way into a growing number of consumer hands, mobile marketers have been keen to use geolocation data in order to help to better target device owners while they’re on the go.

Mobile marketing is rapidly evolving and incorporating new technologies and techniques.

Although advertising in the mobile sphere is still relatively new, it is growing and changing very quickly. Along with this increase, many marketers are looking into using more sophisticated data in order to improve the effectiveness of their strategies. In this, many campaigns are now including geolocation data to help to ensure that consumers are being provided with relevant offers at the most appropriate times.

This is making geolocation increasingly important to timing and targeting in the mobile marketing environment.

A recent report issued by Econsultancy has revealed that more than a quarter (27 percent) of companies around the world intend to implement some form of marketing strategy that uses geolocation, this year. Another 34 percent intend to make an investment into a mobile advertising strategy.

More data, which was released by a geolocation mobile ad platform, Verve Mobile, looked into more than 2,500 American mobile ad campaigns that were implemented across that platform. What it determined was that the percentage of mobile marketing campaigns that implemented some level of geolocation technology, such as geoware targeting and geofencing, had increased twice over. This brought the 2011 level of 17 percent up to 36 percent last year.

This type of geolocation mobile marketing campaign applies data from a consumer’s real time location in order to be able to provide that individual with specific, relevant, and frequently dynamic ads based on his or her proximity to a certain location such as a retail store. It can also be activated when a user enters a space or checks into a location. It can then monitor that user’s response to the message and enhance future communications for improved relevancy to that individual’s preferences, behaviors, and habits for improved appropriateness and usefulness of advertising.
