Every day after dinner while I’m washing dishes, I use my smartphone to listen to my favorite podcast, and as soon as I’m done with chores, I check the latest email of the day from my laptop.
Just when I’m about to fall asleep on the couch with my cup of tea, my smartwatch reminds me it’s bedtime. Today, we jump from tablets to supermarket TV screens where loads of daily unmissable discounts are advertised.
From a marketing point of view, managing content distribution based on an omni-channel strategy is fundamental to work on engagement and customer retention. If your goal is to engage users, you need to know that interacting with them from a single channel won’t be enough. You will need to create a unique users experience capable of involving your customers in the entire process.

Besides TV screens advertising sales, a marketing manager can decide to implement plenty of other channels and devices, like smart shelves, with a specific marketing goal in mind. This will mean that through the app, companies can send customers push notifications with exclusive sales based on their recently purchased items. Nailed it!
To get the results you planned in your mobile marketing strategy, besides knowing your customers, you need to focus on engaging them by communicating across multiple screens, not just one. By doing this, you will be able to reach your main mobile marketing goal: building a relationship with your customers.
