How Smart Apps Will Change The Mobile Marketing Game In 2017
By: Momchil Kyurkchiev

Understanding how customers interact with their favorite apps is crucial for predicting engagement — and with prediction comes personalization. With this intelligence, mobile-savvy brands can communicate more effectively with users.

In 2016, my mobile marketing company analyzed millions of mobile interactions, and our data showed that personalized content inside push notifications boosts engagement four times. What’s more, personalized send times lifted retention seven times.

The modern app is smarter than its predecessors, able to personalize content down to the individual user rather than broad segments. With this in mind, here are my top three predictions for why 2017 will be the year of the smart app:

Smart Apps Will Showcase Predictive Analytics

Predictive analytics will enable apps to anticipate and react to a user's desires before they're even expressed. More than an add-on, I believe predictive analytics is poised to become a must-have for engagement and retention. A Forrester report predicted this trend several years ago, and the technology has further developed since then.

Predictive analytics is already showcasing its strength in apps that consumers use every day. Here are a few examples:

         Retailers like Amazon offer product suggestions based on recent purchases.

         Travel and tourism apps like Foursquare combine user-selected "tastes" and visit history to recommend new destinations.

         Media apps like Last.fm present curated suggestions based on artists in your listening history.

In all three cases, the goal is to predict the individual user's taste and curate content around it. But it doesn't stop there: Today's predictive analytics tools are deriving trends from much more than past purchases.

We already know that personalization is the key to unlocking user engagement, and I predict that everyday apps will use personalization in even more relevant and applicable ways. For instance:

         Retail apps will hyper-personalize product suggestions based on past shopping purchases, seasonal trends, or personal events like a spouse’s birthday.

         Ride-sharing and traffic apps will suggest locales and destinations based on past trips or calendar appointments.

         Dating apps will recommend new matches based on external events within other apps, such as two people listening to the same artist on a music service.

In other words, it won’t just be about relevance. Smart apps will suggest content at the moment you’re most likely to engage, drawing from previous choices and interactions with the app. For example, based on checking users’ geo-locations and calendars, a dating app might suggest meet up times at trending bars or cafes nearby, taking into account both users’ historical preferences.

Smart Apps Will Make Chatbots Ubiquitous

In 2017, more brands will be able to serve consumers using conversational interfaces across the app. Last year, messaging apps surpassed social networking apps in terms of monthly active users — and brands need to be where users are. As such, chatbots have become the new hotspot for mobile-first brands.

Banking apps can use chatbots to predict balances based on recurring transactions. Alternatively, retail apps can personalize the shopping experience through AI-powered chatbots, much like the service you'd receive from an assistant at a brick-and-mortar store.

Your Buyers Are Experiencing Marketing Fatigue; Here's What to Do About It
By:
Jim Brodo

Story One.
 I was at a large tradeshow recently. There must have been close to 1,500 exhibitors. I walked around the exposition floor and somehow managed to have my badge scanned by 25 companies. I had little to no conversation with any of the booth staff, but they were pretty aggressive and scanned my badge.

The day after the conference I received 20, "Thank you for stopping by the booth, lets jump on call" emails. The same day, l also received 10 follow-up phone calls. Over the course of the next two weeks, I received 57 follow-up calls and 224 follow-up emails from those 25 companies, follow-ups like...

         "Did you receive?"

         "When can we connect?"

         "Curious to know if you are interested?"

         "I'm just circling back to my previous email?"

         "I am keen on establishing a conversation?"

My list of such nonpersonal follow-up examples could go on forever. We all get them. We all delete them, but marketing today is playing a numbers games, so this type of correspondence will continue to grow.

Now, to add one more layer of complexity to story No. 1, I received another 110 emails from other companies that were exhibiting at the conference that I did not even visit. Somehow, they managed to find my email, maybe by testing out our email nomenclature or going through my website to get my email. So, my official scoreboard of inbound communications from that one single tradeshow so far has been 411 follow-ups.

Story Two. I was doing some research for a new SaaS-based business simulation that my company is developing. I needed to better understand some of the business models, financial results, and challenges in the industry; so, as part of my secondary research I downloaded five whitepapers from five companies that I found as a result of a Google search. What happened next was astounding.

Literally within two minutes of downloading, I received an email from all five companies. Within five minutes of the download, I received four phone calls. I did not even have the chance to look at any of the articles or whitepapers before I was inundated with follow-up communications.

Within two weeks of downloading, I received an additional 42 follow-up emails and 17 phone calls. The scorecard from downloading five articles was 68 new inbound communications.

One tradeshow and five article downloads resulted in nearly 500 pieces of communication.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Buyers Are Getting Tired

As a marketing professional, I use all the tools out there. Marketing automation, contextual marketing, account-based and content-based marketing tactics... You name it, I use it. And my email campaigns the last six months have gone from a 14% open rate to barely a 5% open rate, while my clickthrough rates have diminished from nearly a 6% rate to just over 2%.

I talk to my marketing colleagues at other companies, and they are experiencing similar results. "The only thing that is working is SEO, but even that is not resulting in qualified leads for sales," I hear over and over.

With all of this influx of communications, our buyers and prospects are experiencing what I am calling "Marketing fatigue." That is, there are there just too many nurture touch points, too many pieces of outreach, too many truly bad email messages.

From what I have seen and what I have personally experienced, buyers are beginning to shut down, and that's going to present a big problem for marketers, despite all of the new and available digital marketing tools making our lives easier...

This fatigue is going to push Marketing and Sales into a panic, if it has not already happened. Marketing, to meet its key performance indicators (KPIs) and waterfall numbers, is just going to push on Marketing-qualified leads (MQL) and Sales-qualified leads (SLQ) to the next level. Sales is going to get discouraged with low-quality leads while business leaders are going to get frustrated with increased marketing costs with poorer conversion levels and most likely "fudged" data.

So, What Can You Do? Here Are Five Tips

1. Re-evaluate your KPIs

Marketing automation has provided marketing professionals with unparalleled insight into buyer patterns and purchasing journeys, from lead to close.

How are you evaluating the success of specific campaigns or your marketing programs as a whole? Are you just providing numbers back to the CEO and saying, "Look, my open rate is 10%? Look, my leads are up! Isn't that great?!"

When developing your goals, however, you need to be thinking about quality versus quantity. It's great to develop 10,000 leads; but if only 1% move to an opportunity, then it really does not matter how many you developed. I would rather have 10 high-quality leads that build the top of the funnel, than 100 poor-quality leads that leak out quickly.

2. Re-evaluate your outreach cadence

This section relates back to the first point on KPIs. Think about the fatigue that your database may be undergoing from all of your outreach. How many campaigns a month are you launching to reach your desired goals? Are you doing drip programs on every campaign?

To create a compelling reason to buy, maybe you should cut back on the overall number of outreaches and nurturing touches (see below), and instead focus on making them really good.

3. Re-evaluate the nurturing process

I know the best-practices say 6-7 touches until you close a lead, but that's too much. At 6-7 touches, you are probably hitting a point of diminishing returns and becoming an annoyance.

Part of the goal of a content-based approach or account-based approach is to provide insight, credibility, and knowledge to the prospect. When you overdo follow-up, it works in reverse and you become a nuisance.

I know we are all spending a lot of money in content development, but most of the time people are just kicking the tires. You have to slowly build credibility and trust—over time.

4. Re-evaluate your messaging and communication style

The "did you see," "did you read," "just checking in" emails really have to go. Your responses and communications have to be personal. They have to entice the prospect to wade through the 500 other emails to get to yours and read it.

Subject lines have to be relevant and interesting. Emails cannot just be boilerplate responses.

Show the reader that you care and you really are interested in their business and challenges. Make sure you are providing value or some sort of compelling reason to respond.

Also, don't be afraid of writing a long email. If you are connecting with the reader and providing value, they will read it.

5. Re-evaluate your training and development

How are you training your business development and sales professionals, and what resources are you providing them for ongoing development and sustainment?

Here is another quick story. A person from one of the companies that I downloaded the research paper from was actually able to get me on the phone. His first statement to me was "I am just calling to see if you were able to download the paper OK?" I quickly responded that I did. He stumbled for a second and replied "OK, great" and hung up the phone. He was not prepared to get through; he was probably trained to leave a message and track the results in the CRM.

If you are not providing sales-skills training, start! If you are not providing business acumen training, start! You have to provide them not only with basic selling skills, such as rapport-building, managing objections, listening, and questioning, but also with the ability to understand business.

No matter what their role, they need to be prepared to ask the questions that will determine a potential link from your solution to the prospects' business need and ultimately their financial drivers and metrics.

Summary

This is really one the most fun times to be in marketing. Technology, tools, data, information, ideas, and innovation in the industry abound. But, as a result prospects and customers are feeling massive overload.

Digital marketing needs to be more than a series of email blasts linked to some content and coupled with automated drip follow-ups to opens and non-opens. We need to be able to harness all the available tools to optimize efficiency, but we also must be able to directly connect with the target audience.

Focus on the personalization of the message and programs, not on meeting a numbers goal, because I guarantee that your buyers are fatigued.
