Our tips for engaging smartphone consumers in Africa
Know your customer
Factors such as smartphone penetration, disposable income, and data costs vary widely between African countries. Savvy marketers should research what devices their customers have (cellphone, feature phone, smartphones and platforms) and then segment them according to how they might interact with the company.
Do some return on investment (ROI) calculations
Developing apps and responsive websites can be expensive – ensure that the money will be well spent. If smartphone users are a small part of your customer base, you could leverage social media platforms to interact with them.
Be respectful and personal
By segmenting the SMS marketing database, marketers can personalise messages to clients’ needs and interests. As such, SMSes can be leveraged as effectively for one-to-one marketing as for bulk messaging. Apps and the web offer even richer options for personalisation, leveraging contextual and location data.
Remember that SMS is still powerful and cost-effective
A simple text message remains one of the most efficient, effective and affordable ways to interact with your customers. It is reliable and immediate. It can be accessed on any cellphone and allows for two-way communication between your business and the customer. Don’t neglect it in the marketing and communications mix.
