Attention to All Marketers & Advertisers - Facebook to Become A Mobile Company

Attention to All Marketers & Advertisers - Facebook to Become A Mobile Company | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

 

"Head of mobile products at Facebook Erick Tseng said just a few weeks ago that Facebook will become a mobile company."

 

****Based on recent announcements it appears that’s precisely where they’re headed and mobile marketing and mobile advertising folks would be wise to pay close attention.

 

 

Back in July Facebook announced the creation of a non-smartphone app called ”Facebook for Every Phone.”

 

****The app is compatible with 2,500 different feature phones or non-smartphones and provides these folks with a similar experience to smartphone users, offering standard Facebook features like the News Feed and Inbox but also letting users upload photos and find friends from their phone contacts.

 

** Briliiant idea for not all of us have smartphones but many of us love Facebook and love to share and post and “Like” our favorite brands.

Flipboard, Personalized Online Magazine, Pursues TV & Films

Flipboard, Personalized Online Magazine, Pursues TV & Films | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

 

By Sarah McBride

 

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Internet video is getting even more crowded. Flipboard, the social media magazine whose investors include actor Ashton Kutcher, plans to add television shows and films to move it beyond the online articles that it offers now.

 

The Palo Alto, California-based company hopes to cut deals with studios to carry movies and episodes of TV shows, getting into territory staked out by Netflix (NFLX.O), Hulu and Facebook.

 

Flipboard mixes articles from a growing list of brands like Oprah.com and the Economist with social media feeds from sites like Facebook into a personalized online magazine. It has received $60.5 million in venture capital funding and its app has been downloaded 3 million times.

Location-Based Services Can Put Businesses on the Map

Location-Based Services Can Put Businesses on the Map | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it
The location services reward the businesses with the most check-ins by ranking them higher in their search results. Have they worked for your business?


All the services offer businesses free window clings and stickers to encourage check-ins to get specials and find friends. They also provide merchants with check-in data, giving businesses valuable insights about their customers.


**Foursquare’s merchant dashboard summarizes total daily check-ins, recent and most frequent visitors, visitors’ gender and most popular time of day for check-ins. You can also see how many of your customers who check in are broadcasting their whereabouts on Twitter and Facebook.


**To determine which promotions will drive the most traffic, try scanning your Facebook and Twitter pages and those of your competitors to see what product or service people are talking about.


**Determine what you can afford to promote with discounts or freebies and target those for promoting. And when you sign up for these platforms, really commit to supporting them. Be sure you make time to work them, frequently pushing out updates and engaging with your audience.

Mobile Twitter Users Share 3X As Much As Facebook Users

Mobile Twitter Users Share 3X As Much As Facebook Users | Mobile Marketing Strategy and beyond | Scoop.it

Interesting statistics on mobile users from mediabistro.com/alltwitter


Here's the bottomline:


Facebook integration generates twice as many sharing events (defined as sharing, liking or following) as Twitter integration. However, that discrepancy is only due to Facebook’s larger overall userbase.


Twitter users do share three times as often as Facebook users, but when you look at active users, Twitter pulls even further ahead.


**Twitter’s active users generate 50 events per 1,000 users, while Facebook only generates 11 events per 1,000 active users.


The study examined all mobile apps with 500 or more monthly active users connecting to Twitter or Facebook across Android, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7.


Of these apps, they found that 20 percent connected to either Facebook or Twitter directly. Out of that 20 percent, ten percent connected to Facebook only, nine percent connected to both Twitter and Facebook,


**while only 1 percent connected to Twitter alone. That's interesting, more sharing coming from a smaller percent of apps
