ALISO VIEJO, CA – October 22, 2015 – Today’s smartphone-armed, always-connected consumer is the prime target for B2C marketers today. While billions are being spent on mobile advertising and beacon technology to track consumers wherever they go, the risk of alienating customers with mobile spam is materializing at a rapid pace. Walking a very thin line, marketers must learn to facilitate valuable, convenient engagement via smartphones that approaches mobile not as just a channel, but as a relationship.
Presented at RetailLoco (October 22-23), Sunil Marolia, Vice President of Product Management at Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), will discuss the challenges of mobile marketing today and describe innovative technologies that can be used to identify ideal opportunities to engage in real time, while making mobile interactions more relevant and valuable to consumers.
“The secret to effective mobile engagement lies in harnessing the untapped power of smartphones to understand consumer context and intent. This requires marketers to change their view of mobile as merely a channel and approach it as a relationship,” said Sunil Marolia, Vice President, Product Management, Smith Micro. “By combining a variety of sensors, analytics, and embedded software on today’s smartphones with purchase history and other customer data, businesses can create highly personalized campaigns to engage consumers with the right information or service, at the right time, building high value, long term relationships.”
