Anyone remember Tamagothchis? You had to feed them for hours, train them, put them to bed. And then the one time you leave it at home. It takes a dump and dies! Smartphones and other mobile devices remind me of Tamagotchis. Constantly with you. Constantly being checked. Constantly able to interact with you in an oddly tangible way. We have tamagotchi syndrome…
Google places spring to mind. Facebook places. 4sqr. Bing? Even twitter. Make it easy for me to interact with you and your brand from the device that I am most likely to use. Use the ENHANCEMENTS MADE AVAILABLE MY SEARCH ENGINES AND THE LIKE and a basic starting point. .
We are now no longer limited by our location or device when it comes to interacting with your brand online.
People search for deals and specials on many things, especially “locally”. Facebook, vouchercloud, google places and more. Make sure that if someone is looking for something you offer, orsearches for an answer that you are best placed to respond to….at that point you present yourself in all your glory.
In fact, they already expect you to be there.
This is a $10bn dollar pie. Don’t we all want a slice?
You don’t have to be at your desk, in your lounge, in an internet café (remember those?). Now, you can be monetized ANYWHERE! Here’s the dotSearch 3 Golden Rules for making mobile work for you.
We no longer need to be on a laptop, at a desk, or on the couch (at home) or at work to make a purchase online. Whether its an app or whatever, I can now buy pretty much anything. Pretty much anywhere. Toilet, park etc even in your store.
Target specific devices with targeted campaigns or accounts. iPhone users make 50x more searches that WAP. Don’t offer something I cant get off my mobile or tablet. Lastly, while Apple does dominate the sector for many reasons, be device agnostic, and listen to your audience.
