Mobivity Marks Major Milestone: 1 Billion SmartTransACTIONS
Each Month, Millions of Consumers Are Having More Timely, Relevant, and Contextual Connections With Brands
PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 02/01/16 -- Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: MFON), the award-winning, mobile marketing and customer engagement platform, today announced they have surpassed 1 billion SmartTransACTIONS.
"One billion represents a significant milestone for our clients and for our company. Each month, millions of Americans are experiencing SmartTransACTIONS," said Dennis Becker, Mobivity CEO. He added, "It's important for our clients, because we are providing a more customized and personalized experience for their customers, while unlocking critical and timely SmartDATA from their Point of Sale to help determine the effectiveness of their marketing efforts. We're excited because we expect that number to grow rapidly as our current customers expand and we win more brands."
Today, brands and marketers are looking for a return on investment (ROI) from their marketing tactics. However, calculating ROI requires a way to attribute a result to a specific action or activity. The result is more brands are directing traditional marketing dollars to digital channels, with the hope of finding an attribution model that works.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, only 7% of commerce in the US occurs online which means 93% is still happening in the physical world. Brands, and in particular restaurant and retail brands, need a better way to tie offline marketing activities to customer purchases, and then use the information to build a more relevant, personal experience for each customer, at a local and national level.
Mobivity is giving brands the ability to connect (and measure) marketing communications in the physical world by unlocking POS and mobile data and marrying it with other traditional tactics to create a closed loop: in some cases increasing response rates from 0.05% to 5% (or greater); improving online advertising conversion by 10X; and increasing revenue per ad by more than 2.5X.
At the billion transactions mark, with almost 2 million SmartTransACTIONS daily, Mobivity is now delivering this for brands at scale. "At the current rate, we'll surpass 2 billion SmartTransACTIONS by 2017. It's truly changing the way our clients connect with their customers," added Mr. Becker.
Mobivity helps restaurant and retail brands grow their business by increasing customer frequency, engagement and spend. Mobivity's Smart suite of products -- including SmartReceipt, SmartSMS, and SmartAnalytics -- allow brands to unlock the power of customer, employee and POS data like never before. This creates a closed-loop marketing solution that provides SmartDATA-driven insights, attributions, and validation, at scale, to continually adapt and provide more personalized, relevant, localized and targeted customer communications. Mobivity clients include SUBWAY®, SONIC®, Jamba Juice®, Chick-fil-A, and Baskin-Robbins. For more information about Mobivity, visit: www.mobivity.com or call 1 (877) 282-7660.
