Addressing the inadequacies of present mobile marketing solutions

Frost and Sullivan analysts ascertained the problems with present mobile marketing technologies where the consumers are often face the inability to find information in that specific moment of intent or event to bookmark of flag a relevant offer for viewing at a later time. Additionally, a push-based approach to mobile marketing (versus allowing consumers to actively seek campaigns based on their needs in a particular moment) are some issues which mobile marketers must address to achieve better user engagement and acceptance.

Key challenges in existing Mobile Marketing, Global, 2015

Some of the key challenges in existing mobile marketing were identified as:

  • Capturing user intent at the right moment
  • Lack of differentiated search and discovery experience
  • Fragmented user experience delivered by marketers on mobile applications
  • Difficulty in mobile application marketing
  • Ad technology is not searchable

According to Frost & Sullivan “Hyper-intelligent mobile marketing solutions should bring value to consumers by helping them discover services and products that they actually need, as opposed to attempting to predict what a consumer might need based on various first and third party data sets. For example, a user standing in front of a retail store may not have an intent to buy from that store, while a user chatting with a friend a few miles away may have expressed a need to purchase home supplies. Therefore, location-based marketing is more “hope driven” while “intent-based” marketing is more actionable and is of service to the user.”

 

How Xploree was selected

Upon review of potential competition, Frost & Sullivan found that the patent pending Search and Discovery platform Xploree has the potential to bridge the gap between intent and action with relevance and enhance user engagement in the most effective ways as compared to any of the existing solutions.
