Why Some Mobile Campaigns Fail

Mobile Marketer asked me to name some of the reasons that mobile programs disappoint. Here’s what I told the publication:

“Messaging campaigns fail for a variety of reasons.  One is a lack of strong call to action – the mobile subscriber needs to be incented to do something and the CTA must be prominent or it will be lost.

“A second is poor execution – it took more than five hours for me to get a bounceback message after I responded to the NFL’s Super Bowl spot call to action.”

I told Mobile Marketer that mobile subscribers are all about instant gratification. Also, to succeed, marketers should start by mapping a strategy for their business goals.
