Mobile marketing platforms facilitate direct marketing on mobile devices by enabling mobile campaign management and activation. These platforms can operate as stand-alone solutions; however, they typically integrate with, or operate alongside, CRM, location/data management, and multichannel marketing hub (MMH) or email marketing platforms. Regardless of how a mobile marketing platform gets deployed, the native or third-party analytics supporting its audience targeting, campaign sequencing, personalization and performance measurement capabilities form the foundation of this technology.
Today, many organizations struggle to optimize online and offline marketing campaigns across an ever growing number of new marketing channels. CMOs are increasingly accountable for demonstrating Return on Marketing Investments (ROMI) across channels and initiatives. Despite an abundance of campaign management technologies (enterprise marketing management, lead management, CRM, marketing automation, email marketing and a variety of point solutions) marketing departments still struggle with campaign performance, campaign workflow, and campaign management; particularly across multiple marketing channels.
