Choosing The Right Mobile Marketing Platform
With the countless mobile marketing platforms out there vying for your business, it can get extremely confusing when choosing the correct one for you. So, we are going to see how other mobile marketing platforms hold up against the extensive features in Papersky's advanced campaign format.
We are going to take a look at the features offered from a popular mobile marketing platform known as, SMSP, first. Then we will see how Papersky differs.
Note: These are the actual features provided by the SMSP website and have not been altered at all.
SMSP Mobile Marketing Platform
- Quick and simple Interactive SMS Service setup in two or three simple steps.
- Temporarily Pause services to alter service parameters, limit usage of a service to specific time periods (e.g. radio shows, events, etc) or delay the response messages for a later time. While a service is paused messages are still being received, but will not be processed until the service has been resumed.
- Reconfigure your service parameters (end date, response message, keyword, etc. ) without losing incoming SMS messages, or having to recreate a new service.
- SMS Sessions: Advanced mechanism that recognises returning participants in a service and correctly routes their messages, even if they forget to insert the original service keyword.
- Ad-Sponsored SMS Replies: provide an additional advertising channel to service sponsors, who can now have their brand name inserted at the end of each SMS reply to participants' mobile phones.
In all respects, this is a fairly adequate mobile marketing platform, but is it right for your business? Now, we will take a look at the advanced features that Papersky offers.
