Are you Still Switching between Apps to Search? That’s so Yesterday!

Users are spending more time than ever before searching for products, services, reviews, music, apps, and other content on mobile devices. According to comScore’s US Digital Future in Focus Report, 2015:

  • In the US, mobile search, which includes queries conducted via app and mobile browser, now accounts for 29 percent of all search activity, with smartphones driving a greater share (20 percent) than tablets (9 percent).
  • 6 billion web searches were performed on smartphones in Q4 2014

Are these millions of minutes spent searching on mobile proving to be productive for the users? Are there better alternatives out there?

Imagine you’re on a messaging app, chatting with your friend and making plans for dinner this evening. You might be interested in Italian dining and to make a decision during the conversation you would normally exit out of your messaging app, (1) launch a browser, (2) search for an Italian restaurant nearby, (3) find some nearby, (4) but search again to find if they have some promotions or coupons that you can use during the dinner tonight. (5) Now you might event click on the restaurant’s website to get more info on menu or location, and that could be another frustrating experience knowing that most of the small businesses websites are not web optimized.

Even after such searching there is a possibility is that you might have to start all over again – what if you got back in the conversation only to find that your friend might prefer a restaurant close to her place than the one you chose? There we go again.

That’s today for most smartphone users but so yesterday for those who are already on Xploree! Xploree optimizes mobile user experience by understanding user intent during user conversations in real-time and enables content discovery in minimum taps.

3 Strategies to Engage and Retain Consumers on Mobile

Mobile adoption rate has been exponential in the last few years and has exceeded desktop usage in most part of the world today. Whether accessing content, checking email, playing games, making purchases or listening to music, users expect easy interactions with brands and services to find what they are looking for. Mobile POS is extremely valuable for businesses and creating the most efficient path to discovery of a brand’s products or services is the best solution to engaging and retaining your users. However, businesses are not able to keep up with the rising consumer expectations.

Here are some recommendations for marketers to increase consumer engagement and retention on mobile:

“A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.” Plato

1.Intent is the Key.

Do you know your user’s intent at present or in the next moment? Knowing user intent is the key to adding powerful precision to personalization. Personalization leads to relevance, engagement and ultimately user loyalty. Contextual content recommendation is easier on mobile through the vast amount of data that we can acquire from user’s actions. The more we focus on the purpose and the next step in a consumer’s journey, the better we can accomplish the mission to serve users in complete context.

“Measuring cost per clicks, impressions, downloads etc. have been the traditional ways to gauge the effectiveness of a mobile advertising campaign. With evolving context aware technologies and enhanced mobile data capabilities it’s easier for us to wean off dependencies on traditional models that rely on behavior, location etc. What matters more is understanding the consumers’ journey, preferences and intent.” Says Prima Dona, VP Product Innovation at KeyPoint Technologies.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

2.User Initiated – Discovery of Experiences.

Brands and marketers are flooded with opportunities today to reach segments of users at random points of time. These are non-productive moments of a user who maybe seeking out opinion from friends on a new car but ends up seeing a brand message on washing machines. Or think of a scenario where a user is casually glancing through his social wall and seeing a content recommendation of a car pooling app. And the day he really needs a car pooling app, that very same brand is unable to reach him. Marketers end up often on the other side of a solution channel where the proximity to user intent is minimal and a typical shoot and wait approach needs to be followed. The frustration of users seeing irrelevant or current approaches of behavior and location optimized brand outreach translates into negative perception of your brand. Considering how we all perceive mobile as a personal device, it’s about time to give users more control on how and when they access information. Give them a quality experience by letting users discover information and offers during their daily interactions on their mobile devices, the more marketers can increase value and trust with their users.

“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― St. Francis of Assisi


Consumers love deals, and in the last couple of years have been more engaged on mobile loyalty programs since the mobile apps make it easier for them to collect and redeem points.

  • Over 2014, Starbucks My Rewards program had over 10 million customers with around 1.5 billion in revenue from mobile only.
  • 451 Research found that 37% of US mobile phone users had used mobile reward program apps to collect or redeem points, and 21% were interested in trying one. (Source: eMarketer)
  • eMarketer expects the number of adults who redeem coupons via mobile device for either online or offline shopping to rise from 78.69 million to 104.11 million between 2014 and 2016, or from 70.0% to 82.0% of all digital couponers.

It’s no doubt that loyalty efforts are most effective mobile marketing campaigns, rewarding for the users and translates to higher conversions for the businesses.

It’s all about making a user’s journey pleasant, easy and more relevant by satisfying their needs, intents and expectations. Bridging the gap between intent and action with relevance and engagement is the most effective way to build authentic relationships with the consumers. There is a sense of delight in discovery for a consumer that leads him to seek out more from the brand. All good stuff follows.

Real-Time Mobile Promotions: Delivering on Consumer Expectations

Consumers are now getting used to redeeming coupons through their mobile devices and the trend is getting stronger every year. Mobile shoppers’ expectations are growing and there is an immediate need to make mobile offers more relevant and redemption effortless. Are brands and businesses doing enough to reach their users in their exact moment of need?

As consumers browse on their mobile devices for location, stores, restaurants, travel plans etc. on mobile, promotions are always huge influencers on their path to purchase. 63% of consumers are more likely to buy something from a retailer if they receive a coupon on their mobile devices while shopping in the retailer’s store. (Source: Mobile Shopping Survey by RetailMeNot, 2013)

Looking at the demand and acceptance of coupons and offers, mobile promotions have the potential to deliver incredible ROI for marketers. There is a need to fill in a huge demand as more reports indicate that most active mobile shoppers are looking for real-time deals and location based offers.

A recent study by Accenture reports on lack of personalized retail experience on mobile, it says that nearly 60% of consumers want real-time offers and promotions however retailers are falling behind on delivering this expectation with only 28% having the capability to deliver that service.

Statista reports that “In 2012, an estimated number of 34.7 million U.S. adults were mobile coupon users. This figure is expected to grow to 53.2 million adult couponers in 2014.”


For the retailers, offering coupons and promotions in real-time is more important than ever. If a mobile shopper discovers competitors’ offers and does not see other brand offers, it is more likely that they would opt for those who can help them save money and reward them with loyalty points or continued deals. Convenience and value are now an expectation on mobile. Brands and businesses must use this opportunity on mobile to reach their users in their exact moment of need or better still delight them with offers in context (delivering on intent, location, activity, preferences). It is a win-win situation for all, one that provides higher conversions for marketers and a rewarding experience for the consumers.

Discover Promotions

Matching users’ preferences and intent on mobile Xploree suggests local and relevant deals offers from local brands and businesses. No matter how users are engaged on mobile, on SMS, messenger apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Viber, or email or social channels, Xploree delivers in real time by letting consumers discover real-time promotions that are most relevant to them. The right message to the right users, at the right time benefits everyone.

Search for Deals

9 out of 10 mobile searches lead to action and more than 50 percent lead to sales. (Source: SearchEngineLand)

Search for a flight deal, restaurant coupons, shopping discounts, often are strong indications of purchase intent. Coupons and promotions are the drivers of ‘decision-simplicity’, to influence and persuade users to complete their purchase journey. There is a big opportunity for brands and businesses to be ready with in-context, real-time offers to satisfy their consumers in their immediate moment of need.

Increase In-Store Conversions

Xploree is leading the next wave of online to in-store conversion which is beneficial to all retailers to be part of the mobile commerce explosion.

A user searching or a restaurant discount or pizza deals can search for offers online and still not find the right one (location and valid dates), but with Xploree only relevant and hyper-contextual offers are recommended. Mobile offers have the power to increase in-store sales. A clearance sale of shoes might prompt users to add the coupon to their favourites and use it at the mall, or a CCD coffee coupon can be availed by the user at their next visit to Café Coffee Day.

Xploree is simplifying the traditional search process through a one-hop solution to finding relevant offers in context. Contact us to know more about how your promotions can reach millions of consumers in real-time.


Localization Drives Higher User Engagement and Conversions

  • According to TRAI report less than 30 percent of the Indian population is estimated to be fluent or comfortable in English.
  • Based on a survey of more than 3,000 global consumers in 10 non-Anglophone countries in Europe, Asia, and South America, 75% prefer to buy products in their native language. (Source: Can’t Read, Won’t Buy: 2014 by CSA Research)

Reports and data from around the world are highlighting the importance of making multilingual marketing a priority to optimize consumer and customer engagement.

With increasing dependence on mobile devices for daily communication, and user expectations to communicate effortlessly on mobile, the need for an intuitive, multi-lingual and extensible solution across platforms and devices is more critical than ever before. There is a big opportunity to tap a wider user base in a variety of vernacular languages to aid users’ comprehension and increase their comfort factor by reaching them in their preferred medium of communication.

Businesses must focus on offering localized solutions on digital media to have a critical advantage over traditional e-commerce and m-commerce market models that have not yet integrated localization in their mainstream strategy.

Localization for User Acquisition and Engagement

Personalization and localization will no doubt create higher level of engagement as brands and businesses branch out in the global economy.

In digital marketing, personalization of targeted messages is positively associated with relevance and perceived credibility of advertising messages. That’s one reason why contextual information is increasingly becoming the core driver of mobile innovation. Adding language intelligence to hyper-context helps create new customer relationships and makes a pivotal contribution for increasing cognitive value of mobile advertising, flow experience and engagement.

Brands and services can accelerate local and global market acceptance through meaningful communication with multilingual audience in their language. Data and reports have shown that customizing and localizing for your user base can dramatically increase engagement and the possibility to gain millions of new loyal customers.

According to a study by Appia, 86% of the localized campaigns outperformed the English campaigns in both click-throughs and conversions. The average click-through rate for the English campaign was 2.35%, with a conversion rate of 7.47%. Meanwhile, local ads had a click-through rate of 3.34%, with a conversion rate of 9.08%.

When aiming for localization, it is important to know that localization is not translation. Localization requires a broader view of the cultural situation. Marketing creatives must consider adding a local touch or cultural spice to flavor the offerings. Being culturally aware on the terminology, expressions and cultural preferences is essential for a successful digital campaign.

Opportunities are being missed by not utilizing the local language preferences of users when viewing online or mobile content. Brands and businesses must realize this huge potential to reach to their consumers in real-time by localizing mobile advertising campaigns.

Xploree’s Language Intelligence

Xploree Search and Discovery Platform is powered by KeyPoint Technologies (KPT), is the leader in innovative language technology offerings for mobile consumers.  KPT has redefined the mobile consumer engagement & experience across platforms, devices by leveraging their core strengths in artificial intelligence & natural language processing.

With language intelligence and hyper-contextual reach, Xploree will serve as an effective interface between brands/businesses and consumers delivering a positive user experience, increasing engagement and increasing conversions.

Xploree Delighted by Accolades at AD:TECH New Delhi

Ad:tech New Delhi was a successful event for Xploree. Our management team returned from the event, quite elated and satisfied by the positive response they received from possible partners, media and event attendees. It was interesting to see how our product was creating a buzz in the hall and increased traffic to our booth as attendees shared info about Xploree with their colleagues or friends. Being called the “most innovative product at the event” sure made our day! A huge thanks to all of you who came back to tell us how you loved Xploree Search and Discovery platform and most importantly for sharing it with others!

Our session on March 20th, titled “Unfolding Hyper-Contextual and Pre-Targeting Revolution in the Mobile Moment”, by lead product manager Manish Jha, evoked curiosity and awe amongst the attendees.

We are catching up with the many new contacts we have made during the two days and are confident in bringing value to our future collaborations. Xploree was very well accepted and received which proved to be a strong validation for its innovative value proposition. The widespread coverage that Xploree received across media as one of the most talked about innovations certainly Ad:tech was a successful campaign. The upcoming Ad:tech events in India, US and SEA, will serve as a force multiplier for Xploree’s success.”

This year Ad:tech New Delhi event witnessed over 3500 attendees, 96+ Speakers, 30+ Sessions, 8 Sponsored workshops, 23 Partners and Sponsors and 58 Exhibitors. Our team at the event felt that the event was very well organized and managed by DMG events.

Adtech presence in India has been strong in the recent few years and promises to grow exponentially fuelled by mobile and tech advances and global investors interest in the Indian tech market.

“Globally, companies spent about $140 billion on digital advertising last year. One or more ad tech firms have a role to play in every one of these dollars spent. Going forward, ad tech will continue to play a crucial role in targeting ad spends precisely at the right consumers…Ad tech firms — both big and small — are re-writing the rules of advertising, changing how online campaigns are created and priced and setting goals so precise that shopping for customers is no different from say, drawing up a grocery list.” Via Indiatimes.com

Ad:tech is attracting major players in the digital marketing industry and proving to be a very useful medium for building partnerships between brands, innovations and the media community. There’s no doubt the event will get bigger and grander next year. And yes, count us in!



Reaching Mobile Users in Context, Immediacy and with Simplicity

It’s elementary, my dear Watson. On mobile, keep it simple, in context and in the immediate moment of need

Mobile offers a unique marketing opportunity that enables brands and marketers to interact with their consumers in the closest proximity to user intent and action.

Mobile users are different than those searching on the desktop. With a shorter attention span and world full of distractions, immediacy of finding information, high relevance of content and ease of making a quick decision are some expectations of a mobile user.

Successful marketing is simply about making it easier for consumers to get the things they want, when they want it, and in context.

Context Matters

On mobile, brands and businesses today have the opportunity to use information on user preferences, geolocation, app usage etc. to offer personalized recommendations to the customers in their immediate context. Contextual information about the user is becoming the core driver of innovation today. The Internet of Things that’s one of the most trending topics of recent years is all around this concept of intelligent technology communicating with each other to assist users to complete actions or predict intent. Technically defined as: “a network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment.” (Gartner Inc.)

The more we know about what, when and where our users are searching for something, or taking it a notch higher by predicting a user’s intent or actions we have the capability to present better and highly relevant content in the exact moment of need. That’s context.

In the Moment

When they need it, they need it right then. Finding relevant information on mobile whenever and wherever is a demand and expectation, if you cannot provide that information fast enough then there is a high probability that your audience or customers will leave. It can be a challenge but also a huge opportunity for technology to cater to the demands of mobile users in their ‘mobile moments’.

Search, action and conversion happens in a fraction of time on smartphones as compared to a desktop or even tablets Research shows that 70% of mobile search leads to action within an hour. Including an easy and clear call-to-action in marketing campaigns or applications will make consumer interaction on mobile more effective and give you a competitive edge.

Ease and Simplicity

Success of any application, platform or a marketing campaign lies in giving its users a positive and meaningful experience.

“The single biggest driver of stickiness, by far, was “decision simplicity”—the ease with which consumers can gather trustworthy information about a product and confidently and efficiently weigh their purchase options. What consumers want from marketers is, simply, simplicity.” Harvard Business Review’s Corporate Executive Board’s survey report of more than 7,000 consumers and interviews with hundreds of marketing executives and other experts around the world.

Creating an easy path to decision is the best path. Perhaps the best example is the “two tap rule” as defined by Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer.

The test for the rule is simple, says Mayer: “Once you’re in the app, is it two taps to do anything you want to do?” If yes – the app is a go. If no, it’s back to the drawing board.

We’re glad to be following and implementing the two tap rule on our platform where you discover what you want in one tap and complete an action in another!

It’s quite evident from what we see around that a positive connect happens when users find information in context, immediacy and with ease. The aim to delight consumers in their journey is an essential element to success.

About Xploree: Xploree is the industry’s first user-initiated, hyper-contextual, platform with language intelligence that conveniently connects mobile device users with brands offers and services in the exact moment of need. Xploree predicts a user’s needs and delights them through their journey across applications as they discover most relevant content, apps, deals and services.

    National and International Events Bring Visibility to Innovations in Mobile Technology

    “The Indian smartphone market is becoming the next important market for growth, and competition among vendors is gaining steam. India accounted for 7% of global smartphone shipments in 2014, and that share will rise to 15% in 2020.” – BusinessInsider Report

    Indian companies like Flipkart, InMobi, Snapdeal and Olacabs have recently joined the billion dollar club; and it is exciting to see a gamut of other mobile focused Indian companies in the global forefront of mobile technology. Keeping up with the rising trends in ecommerce and mobile technology, the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) brought an excellent opportunity for Xploree Search and Discovery Platform (powered by KeyPoint Technologies) to be part of the few companies that represented India’s mobile expertise at the India Pavilion at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, held March 2-5, 2015.

    Partnerships, collaborations and recognition at the global stage can offer a startup or an organization a distinct competitive advantage. Participation at such events brings the much needed visibility for innovations to be recognized earlier and to be scaled faster. But above all, an industry or organization can benefit immensely with support from the government and the vibes we are witnessing this year are definitely reassuring. #MakeInIndia is one such admirable initiative from the government encouraging companies to manufacture their products in India. We look forward to #MakeInIndia initiatives that focus on mobile technology in near future.

    It was truly encouraging to see participation and interest from the India’s delegation from the Department of Telecommunications at the Mobile World Congress. It was good to interact with eminent members from the DoT, who shared their perspectives on expectations from the government of India for mobile inclusion and how language solutions can help millions of mobile users in India. We look forward to sharing our experience and skills in linguistics and user input technology to assist any related government initiatives.

    Apart from the global events like the MWC, there are other events like those organized by NASSCOM that present opportunities to Indian leaders to collaborate and participate at a global scale. Also, organizations like the Indian product think tank, iSPIRT, has been diligent in bringing innovation showcase event, InTech50, which serves as a platform for recognizing the most promising software products by early stage innovators of India.

    “The last one-year has changed that perception of India as just a software services destination, and we have now generated early but enthusiastic interest in the international markets for our software products.” – Sharad Sharma, co-founder iSPIRT.

    We agree, there’s been an upswing in development and growth in the entire Indian mobile ecosystem. From operators, manufacturers to digital marketing firms, India is efficiently riding the mobile wave and making the best of it!

    We now look forward to Ad-Tech India in New Delhi, which is the leading digital marketing & advertising conference & exhibition in India. We hope to receive an equally positive and enthusiastic response for Xploree Search and Discovery Platform as we experienced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Watch this space, we’ll keep you posted.


    KeyPoint Technologies Demos Xploree Search and Discovery Platform at Mobile World Congress #MWC15

    Mobile World Congress 2015, held at Barcelona, March 2-5, was undoubtedly the largest mobile focused show in the world. Keeping up with the theme of the year ‘The Edge of Innovation’, KeyPoint Technologies was proud to showcase their latest innovation Xploree Search and Discovery Platform to the world. From CEOs, executives and media, we connected with a wide range of attendees at the event and are stoked by the response we received from all.

    Some very exciting products and connected technology were on display, but devices by themselves do not represent a holistic transformation to consumers experience on mobile. It’s the apps, services and technology that enable intelligent and meaningful interactions in the connected world.

    SumitSumit Goswami, CEO of KeyPoint Technologies, says, “MWC 2015 was a platform created for startups and app development companies to showcase their products and services to a global audience. App planet, App showcase and startup presentations had the highest footfall amongst all the other exhibition halls. Many new devices were launched this year like Galaxy X6 from Samsung, M9 from HTC etc but it was all about wearables and they had a dominating presence in all the OEM booths. Wearables are definitely going to change the device landscape going forward. KeyPoint Technologies had a successful presence this year with many strategic meetings and customer visits. The response to Xploree was very encouraging and it definitely validated our effort on making it a successful search and discovery product”.

    In the brave new world of smart mobile technology, it was quite evident that user experience is the key to engaging interfaces and context aware and non-intrusive applications will be the centerpiece of the entire mobile ecosystem. We saw an enthusiastic response to Xploree’s user-initiated and non-intrusive platform that enables instant brand-consumer connect on mobile. Xploree was seen as providing the best opportunity on mobile for brands to be in context and to reach out to their audience in the users’ exact moment of need.

    The mobile marketing landscape is complex and we are delighted to have made a positive impact on the path to an exceptional user experience by serving uniquely relevant brand offers, services, information and more in real-time with hyper-contextual, language intelligence.

    We thank the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) for bringing the India Pavilion to the MWC for the first time this year. It was highly encouraging to see genuine interest from the Indian government’s Department of Telecommunications during their visit at our booth.
