Inserting call-to-actions or text teasers, such as “text VIP to 46786 (IOPTN)”, into your ads is like injecting your ad with steroids. It takes a static print, radio or TV ad and introduces an interactive element to it. This makes your ad dollars work harder and allows you to get a better return on investment.
Once a person acts on your mobile call-to-action inside an ad, you create a dialogue with this person over the mobile channel. Now you have taken a static print ad and with no manual effort and have turned it into a direct one-to-one conversation with your customer. This conversation now enables you to ask your customer a question, offer them a special promotion or enter them into a contest. They are now interacting with your brand, which is invaluable.
The benefits of injecting your ads with text teasers are:
- Brings your static ads to life. Your ads become interactive and give you more brand impressions.
- Allows you to track the effectiveness of your advertisements. You can now measure how many people participated in your text program. In addition, by using multiple keywords or sub-keywords in different ads, you can track which ads are working harder for your campaign.
- Customer acquisition is always on. As long as your ad is viewable, you have the ability to acquire new customers at their convenience.
