The National Retail Federation recently revealed that holiday shopping can account for as much as 20%-40% of the average retail outlets total yearly sales. In fact, numbers from 2011 show that sales during the holiday season accounted for 19.5% of sales across the entire retail industry. "The holiday season can bring great opportunities and rewards to local small business owners, which can last longer than just a couple of months, if efficient systems are in place to help retain the new customers – that’s the advantage mobile marketing strategies can provide, fast," said Andrew Cass, co-founder of RemarkaMobile.
A multitude of mobile marketing strategies can provide traction with customers, including proprietary mobile apps, mobile optimized websites, and customized QR codes. But according to the experts at RemarkaMobile, SMS text marketing strategies are rapidly becoming the most powerful of those tools, as it allows vendors to communicate special offers, and even customized offerings to a wide range of customers – quickly and affordably. “In today’s economy, companies simply can’t afford to ignore the direction consumers are going,” stated Cass. He continued saying: “Not giving SMS text marketing the attention it deserves might be the very element to decide who will struggle and who will thrive in the upcoming years.”
Michael Force, the other co-founder of RemarkaMobile, confirms the strength of SMS text marketing by adding: “Failing to implement mobile marketing strategies and transition to m-commerce will cause businesses to fall further behind, just like it previously happened with e-commerce.”
