Upcoming Challenges For Mobile Development & Mobile Marketing

November 24, 2018

The digital world is evolving and the trends are changing in real world, making the world faster than ever before and technology more stable. Mobile is all about today’s world which took birth with the invention of first pager in 1956. The world started getting mobile and the launch of first commercial mobile phone by NTT in Japan was the next step to stabilize this mobility.

The innovation in this mobility with SMS happened to be originated in Europe in 1985. SMS was a boom in the later part of 1900s and early 2000s, and still it’s the top cellular activity. Now, there’re above 4 billion mobile phone subscribers, with 74% of them using SMS of which 94% of SMSs are read. Just in UK 1.4 billion text messages now being sent every week.

This is just about mobile phones and SMS, innovations like iPhone, Blackberry, Android and mobile-internet integration are constanly opening the new horizons of excellence for mobile marketing. Web marketing is one of the most cost effective marketing methods with maximum outreach. Since there’re more mobile phone subscribers than that of internet users, so mobile opens broad ways for marketing from small and medium to large businesses.

Mobile-web integrated marketed is still in the process of development, reason being the lack of awareness among most of mobile phone subscribers, i.e. there’re about 10 million users worldwide using GPRS services that makes only about 0.25% of the total subscribers. But, this low percentage doesn’t mean that mobile marketing is not growing. There’re various alternative methods within mobile marketing including SMS Marketing, Ingame Mobile Marketing, Location Based Services etc.

Ingame Mobile Marketing is the fastly growing area and the future of mobile marketing. The reason is that more than 90% of mobile phone subscribers play mobile games. From simple interactive real-time 3D games to massive multi-player and social networking games, mobile gaming is everywhere. This trend is accelerating the growth of mobile 2.0 on one hand and hence the mobile development on other.

Mobile development being the next big thing is now the focus of small, medium and large business, and hence it’s becoming a competitive industry. The cometition is becoming tougher as the industry leaders Nokia and Google have moved to opensource, and this situation is critical for ISVs. ZDNet also reports that, it’ll not be the great UI as only challenge instead, things that matter more are ideas and methodologies. Though ISV’s are more under pressure, but companies will have equal pressure and will have to face almost same challenges. It’ll be the race of collective innovation [what I can term it as] or Product Innovation [combination of innovation in methodologies, design, productivity etc] so, innovation in over all performance will win!

The reason that data goes missing are varied, but seven listed below are the most common.

1. iOS software update

Some users state that their contacts were wiped when updating to the new iOS, even after restoring the rest of the device’s settings as is the norm. Its recommended that you just hit “update” button left without any security of your content, all you have to remember is to back up your device to either iCloud or iTunes on a local computer.

2. Restore to factory settings

Restoring your iPhone to factory settings may remove all of your personal information like text messages, notes and appointments, although it retains some of its apps.

3. Jailbreak

Jailbreaking your iPhone voids the warranty, and this operation often got stuck in DFU mode. Restoring your iPhone in iTunes will erase everything including SMS, photos, videos etc.

Deleting information simply by touching the screen the wrong way, getting rid of unwanted contacts on your iPhone or other mis-operations will make your regret most before backup.

iPhone crashing like camera library, mail or contact app crashing will put your iPhone into blank screen with Apple sign in white. Then you find all your photos, contacts were gone after it came back.

6. Get your iPhone wet or have it stolen

If you have had the horrible misfortune of having your iPhone dropped in water or stolen, maybe you will see all your valuable information get lost, including contacts, photos, music, SMS, ideas, etc. in a second.

7. Replacing iPhone battery

All flash memory in the phone (except RAM) is retained without power. Replacing the battery has the same effect as resetting your iPhone, be careful with this!

We didnt realize the seriousness of the situations such as the above until we deleted a crucial message on iPhone. But are the deleted files deleted permanently? Users should be aware that highly sensitive data can still be retrieved from either iTunes backup file or iPhone directly some of the time. Below are the steps from recovering lost data via two means.

Step 1: Configure iTunes so that it doesn’t automatically sync with your iPhone when it is connected to your computer;

Step 2: Connect your iPhone to your computer;

Step 3: Open iTunes, right-click on your device and press “Restore from backup…”.

Recovery tool method to retrieve deleted files without backup

Due to the special technology of iPhone, it’s very hard to recover data directly from the iPhone itself, but it’s not impossible.

Less expensive mobile products
A chunk of the mobile telephone cost is the O. S. Unless the phone uses special devices and materials like camera lens similar to pro cameras or dear metals for the body, the hardware cost may not amount to a significant value since production costs are going down because of more recent technologies. The free Android OS allows the telephone costs to go down because a gigantic portion of the price isn’t applicable .

Improving Technology
Mobile systems have continuously become better and faster. The advent of this new OS will certainly allow the development of better service and features to the final user. Users should be excited with the chance of larger adventure – like the 90s when we initially began to enjoy SMS, MMS, etc .

Better Services
We’re all acquainted with the iPhone’s ability to allow 3rd party programmers to develop applications, the Android OS is not different as it also inspires other programmers to develop the technology. This allows the end users to enjoy more modern and better applications and will certainly increase the phone’s value. At the end, you’ll get more than you paid for.

Google Products
most of use Google services like Gmail and Google Documents, having an Android device will make this experience more pleasant and pleasurable. With the increasing renown of Google products you may be warranted you are getting onto a good team.

These top reasons make the Android phones a wanted product that will surely make a massive impact on the mobile industry. There are already several brilliantly designed Android phones available in the market, and these phones are getting better and cost less each quarter.

Txtlocal MD Darren Daws says SMS leads the way for mobile marketing

June 21, 2017

As the mobile industry comes of age and becomes more sophisticated, it is widely predicted that more companies are choosing to spend a larger percentage of their marketing budget on mobile advertising and applications. The benefits of SMS becomes clear; campaigns need to capitalise on using SMS to support their overall marketing strategies and use messaging as the main force driving customers to the Internet.

This view was echoed by some of the worlds biggest brands at the latest MMA forum. Gavin Mehrotra, Director of International Media for the Coca Cola Company, started his presentation stating categorically that “SMS is the number 1 priority at Coca Cola in mobile” and that you need it to reach just about every person on the planet.

We also know that SMS gives a campaign the added power to communicate with your target customer and build on the relationship you have with them based on permission and trust. Adding SMS to a campaign allows consumers to text for more information so the follow-up is able to become more targeted; we have seen this work in every sector. In the Arts we have worked with English National Opera who used an SMS campaign to increase ticket sales for late availability, an investment of 500 in SMS marketing brought a return on investment of an amazing 8000 in ticket sales. Papa Johns Pizza use SMS to market special offers at times that they want to build sales, in fact across all sectors we are experiencing a growth in ROI as campaigns are measurable in a way they havent been until now.

Combine this with the growth in the use of Smartphone technology and its clear why campaigns are benefiting from improved targeting with SMS. No longer are you limited to 160 characters of text, the use of Smartphone technology and the public acceptance of tiny URLs on social media platforms, means that SMS can be used as tool to link to a bigger picture. SMS can now be used as the hook needed to direct the reader to where they need to be online, faster than if they were left to their own devices. Links to apps, videos and web pages are easily incorporated into an SMS message, making SMS a vital tool working hand in hand with other mobile marketing tools to achieve greater ROI for every mobile campaign.
At Txtlocal, we work with clients of all sizes and shapes from English National Opera, Malmaison Hotels and Liverpool University to much smaller owner operated brands like Shelleys Restaurant in Warrington, we can create campaigns that generate a real response – quickly. Any tool which allows a business owner to grow their customer data and intelligence, and then allow you to communicate targeted messages to them directly is powerful, and its right there in your hand the humble mobile phone.

Its safe to say that if the world’s undisputed number one advertising brand, Coca Cola says categorically, SMS is priority number 1, then surely other businesses large or small need to operate with the same view.
