B2B Mobile Marketing: Why Mobile For B2Bs?

  1. 1. B2BMobile Marketing<br />Why<br />Mobile<br />For <br />B2Bs?<br />Christina “CK” Kerley<br /> www.CKBlog.com<br />©2010 Christina Kerley/ckEpiphany, Inc.<br />
  2. 2. With <br />4.6 BILLION current mobile subscriptions,<br />surging to <br />6.5 billion <br />mobile connections by 2014, there’s no denying it…<br />Sources Here and Here<br />
  3. 3. Mobile Has Arrived. <br />And it's changing how <br />(and where) business professionals <br />communicate with <br />each other… <br />and how (and why!) business audiences <br />interact with <br /> B2B brands. <br />
  4. 4. UNPRECEDENTED SCALE<br />Consumer and business marketers alike have never witnessed this stunning scale of ubiquitous adoption coupled with a unique, instant and always-on communications channel.<br />
  5. 5. ‘First Screen’ In Five Years<br />In a recent report, Morgan Stanley’s analysts predict, based on the current rate of change and adoption, the Mobile Web will be bigger than desktop Internet use by 2015—with <br />Gartner projecting mobile devices to overtake PCs as the most common Web devices by 2013.<br />Above findings here and here.<br />
  6. 6. B2Cs Get It.<br />B2Bs Don’t.<br /> B2Bs have <br />not yet <br />recognized <br />*WHY*<br />mobile <br />provides them <br />a robust marketing channel, too.<br />
  7. 7. So,<br />Why<br />Mobile<br />For<br />B2Bs?<br />Let’s explore the many reasons <br />(and rationale)…<br />
  8. 8. Growth<br />Engagement<br />Reach<br />
  9. 9. Mobile’s Growth Rates Are<br />Unprecedented, And Unstoppable.<br />G<br />r<br />o<br />w<br />t<br />h<br />Current figures cite 4.6 billion mobile <br />subscriptions, and those numbers are projected to surge to 6.5 billion mobile connections worldwide by 2014—with mobile phones overtaking PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide by 2013. <br />These numbers speak volumes and what they're telling B2B marketers is, along with consumers, business audiences have adopted mobile media in droves—and now it's their turn to integrate mobile into their marketing activities.<br />
  10. 10. Professionals Are A Highly Engaged Mobile Audience.<br />E<br />N<br />G<br />A<br />G<br />E<br />M<br />E<br />N<br />T<br />For today's business professionals, mobile devices ensure they remain informed of developments and constantly accessible to their teams. In other words, professionals use mobile devices to fulfill business needs (vs. using mobile for personal activities, as with consumers). And their mobile devices are always within reach.<br />The action point for B2B marketers is to assess how they can develop mobile programs that help professionals work smarter, faster and better, so that these business audiences engage with their brands and increase their brand’s ROI.<br />
  11. 11. Mobile Extends B2Bs’ Reach <br />To A Global Stage.<br />R<br />e<br />a<br />c<br />h<br />According to Motally, 80% percent of mobile websites get traffic from at least 3 regions outside of their own, with 72% of mobile applications (“Apps”) used in 4 or more regions. <br />Given that most B2B offerings aren't confined to certain geographical regions, and that today's growth opportunities are occurring in global markets and foreign regions, mobile presents B2B marketers with a new channel to pull more prospects to them—no matter where those prospects are physically located.<br />
  12. 12. Immediacy<br />ROI<br />Measurable<br />
  13. 13. Mobile Messages Touch <br />Business Audiences Immediately... <br />Anywhere, Anytime.<br />I<br />M<br />M<br />E<br />D<br />I<br />A<br />C<br />Y<br />Because professionals always have their mobile devices within reach, marketers’ messages 'touch' audiences immediately. <br />And due to mobile's 100% opt-in requirements, messages are more likely to be read—and professional audiences are more likely to be qualified—than through other media that "sprays and prays" when targeting audience segments.<br />
  14. 14. Mobile Can Bolster Success Of<br />*Existing* B2B Efforts.<br />R<br />O<br />I<br />Before identifying new mobile marketing campaigns, the first step for B2B marketers should be to audit their current activities to identify how mobile can be integrated into their existing efforts.<br />For example, B2Bs might provide business audiences with SMS text feeds of real-time breaking developments that they already track for on their blogs, or create in-venue apps to improve attendees' experiences at industry events that they already sponsor.  <br />Whatever the approach, mobile can increase the success (and thus, ROI) of the efforts that B2B marketers are already implementing.<br />
  15. 15. M<br />E<br />A<br />S<br />U<br />R<br />A<br />B<br />L<br />E<br />Mobile Isn't Mushy, <br />It's Measurable.<br />Mobile is track-able, measurable and accountable, with mobile metrics akin to what marketers are used to tracking for their interactive initiatives. <br />And since many metrics—like open rates, click-through rates and number of subscribers—are available in real time, B2B marketers have the ability to track the progress of their campaigns… as well as continually optimize their efforts so as to increase their success.<br />
  16. 16. Communications<br />Content<br />Lead-Gen <br />
  17. 17. C<br />O<br />M<br />M<br />U<br />N<br />I<br />C<br />A<br />T<br />I<br />O<br />N<br />S<br />Mobile Provides A Uniquely *Personal* Communications Channel For New <br />Dialogues With Business Markets. <br />Mobile is the most personal communications channel and the closest you'll get to your business market, other than in-person interactions. <br />In establishing new dialogues with business professionals—as through SMS text feeds—B2Bs can turn mobile connections into customer connections by creating familiarity, offering new points of value to professionals and consistently providing positive brand encounters (not sales pitches!) to business audiences.<br />
  18. 18. Mobile Transforms Static B2B Branding Into Dynamic Lead-Generation.<br />L<br />E<br />A<br />D<br />G<br />E<br />N<br />Where B2B marketers could once only work to raise awareness of their brands through such media as print, direct mail and broadcast, by integrating mobile approaches, B2Bs can transform their branding campaigns into lead-generation programs.<br />B2C marketers are avidly leveraging these benefits already, as with featuring mobile short codes on their print advertisements that enable users to subscribe to mobile content feeds—and as a result, they’re pulling prospects in… rather than merely pushing messages out.<br />
  19. 19. Professionals Need To Access <br />Content Remotely—Including Data <br />That Influences Purcha$ing Decisions.<br />C<br />O<br />N<br />T<br />E<br />N<br />T<br />Even when business professionals are working off-site—or when they’re on-the-go—they still need to access information that will inform their work, improve their efficiency, and influence their purchasing decisions.<br />The implication is for B2Bs to constantly consider the mobile-viewing experience in their marketing programs by offering content that is optimized for small screens, be it developed in text, audio and/ or video formats. <br />(Note: A helpful post on this best practice is located here.) <br />
  20. 20. New Ways<br />For <br />Business<br />Professionals<br />To <br />Interact<br />With Your<br />B2B Brands<br />
  21. 21. Through Mobile Apps And Widgets, B2B Marketers Can Increase The <br />Value (And Utility) Of Their Brands.<br />B<br />R<br />A<br />N<br />D<br />V<br />A<br />L<br />U<br />E<br />Downloadable widgets are simple, <br />single-function programs, like weather forecasts, clocks and ROI calculators. Apps, on the other hands, can be quite sophisticated and provide users with small programs on their mobile devices. <br />Through developing apps and widgets—that underscore their brand's value proposition while providing benefits and solving problems for users—B2B marketers are afforded a rich new vehicle to build brand value in efforts to attract and engage target audiences.<br />
  22. 22. N<br />E<br />W<br />B<br />E<br />N<br />E<br />F<br />I<br />T<br />S<br />Through Location-Based Features, Marketers Can Provide New Benefits<br />To Their Business Audiences. <br />Mobile programs that integrate location-aware features can provide many new benefits. For example, marketers can target business audiences located within a respective proximity (such as at industry events when professionals are at the same location). Or, mobile programs could use location-aware features to let professionals in the same industry reveal their locations to one another, sparking new, locally based professional connections.<br />However B2B marketers use Location-Based Services (LBS) to enhance their mobile programs, these features provide a new set of benefits to their target audiences… and enable marketers to use these benefits to increase awareness and sales.<br />
