  • Hi, I’m Cassie Roberts, and today, we’re going to talk to you about marketing your event via mobile. I’ll tell you more about our company in a minute, but first a little housekeeping…
  • Saffire Events was founded by Kendra Wright, who has been building websites since 1995, when the internet began.In 2000, she joined forces with Aaron Pederson, Saffire Events’ technical director, and Jeremy Emerson, Saffire Events’ creative director.
  • Since then, Saffire Events has addedalmost a dozen people, all to keep up with the ever-rising bar of online expectations.
  • Besides theirwork in the event industry, their team does work for large consumer companies in a lot of industries. This gives a breadth of experience that they bring to marketing events online.
  • A few years ago, a phone call changed the trajectory of theircompany.Rodeo Austin called and asked them to build an immersive, online presence. Immediately, Saffire Events felt this was an industry they wanted to call home, because this was an industry they could help. And the best thing is, because of geographic disparity, Saffire can bring the experience of lots of fairs and give us functionality that we would never be able to afford from someone just building one event website.
  • First, I want to talk to you about the opportunities in mobile marketing, why it’s important and best strategies. (stats, how to create, UI, iPhone vs. Android, apps vs. site, tablets, mcommerce trends) Second, I want to talk to you about getting people to engage with you on mobile. (through site, QR codes, clever apps, etc.) Third, I want to talk about specific tools for updating your site mobilly via blog, flickr, twitter, fbetc, location-based marketing, text marketing, tools to update all at once like hootsuite.
  • Screens were REALLY SMALL (and fuzzy!). Some of ours still are!
  • This is how we browsed the Internet.
  • Alta Vista was the Google of 1995.
  • Just imagine, with screens this size and browsing this slowly, how different it was to build websites… and to visit them.
  • 56kVs.10 megabitVs.1 megabit – with 4G, this will increase to 4-6 Megabits and BEYOND! But to get it, you have to be in the right place and have the right device that supports 4G.4G is coming to all mobile providers. Verizon and ATT already provide ~1-2Megabit download speeds for phones and about 6-8 for laptops with 4G modems. The technology has the potential to go to 10 Megabits.
  • It’s funny being in the internet business for a long time. When we talk about smaller screen sizes and slower speeds, it sure does sound familiar.Developing for mobile has some of the same challenges we had 15 years ago. But it’s still a whole new world.
  • When we think about mobile, a few years ago, we would have thought of phone calls.Then as time passed, it came to mean mobile websites.
  • If you ask people what they do with their phones, calls will not even be at the top of the list.Mobile gives people the opportunity to do things immediately.Starbucks – bonusesMany texts per day, but no callsVoicemail is seen as an annoyancehttp://www.onlinemarketing-trends.com/2011/09/how-mobile-is-driving-us-online.html

  • By 2014, more people will access your website via mobile devices than desktop computers. Based on the trajectory I’ve seen, I believe it!
  • Since accessing the internet through a mobile phone was the closest behind computers, we’ll start there. Mobile internet usage is growing at an incredible rate. Of the world’s 4 billion mobile phones 1.08 billion are smart phones, and on average Americans spend 2.7 hours per day on their mobile phone. So clearly the audience is already there. It’s important that you GET THERE NOW and develop your presence. This next stat proves why: Mobile Commerce is increasing at 10% per year. If you build your presence now, people will feel safer buying from your site on their mobile devices when they’re ready. In addition, desktop computer usage is dwindling. By 2014 more people will access the internet by mobile than desktop, so you HAVE to be there. Finally, women aged 35-54 are the most active group in mobile socialization. We’ve been told by more than a few fairs that this is a KEY audience for fair marketing. This group usually brings their family, and they usually control the…what? Yes, MONEY. 
  • One common denominator of what people do is to search for information. There’s good news and bad news. The good news is, the vast majority of searches are done for local info. That’s you.The bad news is, ready or not, your customers are THERE!Mobile Search is becoming critical for local information – Your site will be found via mobile whether you are ready or not.http://www.onlinemarketing-trends.com/2012/01/mobile-search-increase-by-400-in-2011.html
  • You won’t make a million dollars right now online, but it’s crazy how fast it will happen. And even if they don’t buy, they’re using it to support their purchases.One thing you can do to support this is make sure you have “MY Account” on your desktop site.This will help US m-commerce sales grow at a compound annual rate of 55% from 2010 to 2015, including 73.1% growth expected this year.
  • You need to be doing ecommerce anyway. Why? In 2011, we had major weather events that effected, so many fairs.
  • Selling advanced tickets to your event is like an insurance policy against all these things. Things happen. People get busy. They use up all the money from their current paycheck. But if they have a ticket to your event, they will probably come. But not all of them will. People will spend incremental revenue.And because redemption won’t be 100%, you can even afford to discount tickets and/or offer free shipping off the gate price, and still make more than you would have.
  • Like I said, your website is still important. You should have a hierarchy of information, with the most important information where peoples’ eyes are most likely to go. This is like a capital F – across the top, down the left and a little bit in the middle (usually with headlines). Navigation should be streamlined, with no more than 5-7 items in any one place, because that’s how many things people can remember. It should also offer some interactivity, things for them to click around on and get engaged.
  • So when you’re asking yourself how good your site needs to be, keep in mind all the other sites people look at in a day, not just fair sites, to determine how high the bar is. You need to have a website that reflects your brand. And it needs to get people so excited about it that they tell other people about your event – in other words, do your marketing for you.
  • This brings up a question we’re often asked:How good does our website need to be? The truth is, you need to be as good as your customers expect you to be.User expectations are set by their aggregated user experience from around the web.
  • A site for theiPad and other tablets can be built with the same technology as your mobile site, which means NO FLASH! If a person is accessing your site from one of these devices, the site simply has to know to redirect it to a no-flash homepage. 1. No Flash 2. Big Buttons 3. Easy Navigation-most important things large and first
  • If you love your provider and your current Content Management System, use them (make sure they have mobile experience)Don’t make it “separate;” the main considerations for mobile are size, speed and technology differences
  • Good usability is even more important than desktop! Commitment level is low – people won’t try to “figure it out.”Use breadcrumbs, so they remember context (where they came from, where they are, where they can come)Make it easy to touch and manipulate – eyes are more agile than fingers - don’t make your customers feel like they have fat fingers!Streamline navigation – same research as desktop applies – don’t overwhelm! Use progressive disclosure, meaning more screens that are simple and focused (and faster loading!)Think about the needs of your audience, usually if on Mobile, they are on the go, and need quick info on 1) Contact info, 2) Directions, 3) Hours, etc. Providing clear and simple paths to these key bits will go a long way to helping your fans love youWhen thinking about mCommerce, think about ways of making the process extremely simple, since so many fields can be required for a purchase. Returning Customer accounts allow for saved Shipping/Billing addresses, saving time and typing
  • When we think about mobile, we tend to think about smart phones. But tablets were the #1 holiday gift in 2011. So having a tablet site is becoming more important. And many feel that ecommerce statistics will be even more compelling on tablets than on smart phones, because of the increased screen size.
  • Holiday season= tablets; you may have noticed this year that this is THE gift this year. After christmas you HAVE to have a mobile site The statistics on tablets like iPads are also becoming more compelling if you’re looking for another outlet to improve your online presenceThe iPad, which has clearly led the tablet market since 2010, will continue to do so for the next few years. But eventually, like all technologies, its share will be slowly chipped away by competitors. The number of US iPad users will more than double by 2014, from 28 million to 60.8 million. What’s the answer?
  • A site for theiPad and other tablets can be built with the same technology as your mobile site, which means NO FLASH! If a person is accessing your site from one of these devices, the site simply has to know to redirect it to a no-flash homepage. 1. No flash

  • So you know you need to be on Mobile, but what should you do- an app or a mobile site? And do you know the difference? App: Downloadable interface that installs Mobile site- DEFINITELY.

That way you don’t have to guess which phone will “win!”The same technology you use to build mobile also works for tablets (no Flash)An app only reaches your most loyal followers while a mobile site reaches EVERYONEQR codes only go to mobile sites!, which Kendra will talk more about in a minuteBalance the tradeoffs of effort/cost vs ROILots of talk about time spent on apps, but reality is that the apps consuming the time are:Facebook,Gmail,Google Maps, Google Search, YouTube, Android Market, Twitter, Angry Birds,Adobe Reader, Pandora, WeatherChanneland Words With FriendsIn fact, the top 10 Android apps account for 43 percent of all the time spent by Android consumers on mobile apps.http://www.onlinemarketing-trends.com/2011/09/mobile-apps-vs-mobile-web-state-of-us.html
  • Ease of engagement – mobile site is instant, and included on everyone’s smartphone right from a browser. Apps are searched for in a store, downloaded, installed and usually only hit your very top fansImplementation Cost – mobile sites are generally less costly and time-intensive to produce than apps.

  • You may have heard of things called QR codes (stands for Quick Response). There is a lot of buzz about these, and today, I’m going to demystify them for you. Really, they are just a quick way to get someone to your mobile website.
  • Simply put, they’re a way to bring people in the physical world (as opposed to people sitting in front of their computers) to your digital content without them even having to go type your URL, find you on Twitter/Facebook, or search for your offerings. Essentially, QR codes extend the hyperlink beyond the web, and into print, whether that be newspapers, magazines, business cards, clothing, signage, or other creative uses. Measuring Success: 5 Metrics you need to Monitor QR codes   Metrics to monitor how QR Codes are impacting your marketing goals:Impressions. This is the number of times the QR code is viewed in its original context or surface. This is usually the same as the number of impressions the ad, in which the QR code appears, gets.Snaps. This is the number of people who snap a shot of the QR code and are linked to the landing page or other content. Make sure the landing page is mobile friendly because users capture this information on a smartphone.  Snap-through rate. Calculate the percentage of people who take this next action by dividing the number of snaps by the number of impressions.Actions. This is the number of people who ultimately buy or take the next step. This should be in line with marketing goals.Conversion rate. Calculatethe percentage of people who convert from those who snap-through on your QR code or actions divided by snaps.Good infographic with more stats: http://www.onlinemarketing-trends.com/2011/04/smartphone-users-increasingly-using-qr.html
