Eyes on the Mode of Communication

Jim has been doing marketing automation for many years already. He saw how the problems in automated campaigns all went back to the mode of communication.

“You can be sophisticated but if all that you are doing is sending emails and no one's checking emails, there's a problem.” – Jim Koch

To address the issue, they built their own platform. They believe that if they can reach people through the channel they use the most, they can focus their attention on it.

The Difference with Mobile Marketing

Jim shared that people have about 3 to 4 email accounts on average. But the open and click through rates aren't high.

“SMS is by far the most engaging channel on the planet. In fact, according to Apple, 50% of all usage in the iPhone is SMS.” – Jim Koch

Mobile marketing is NOT text marketing. The two are different. Mobile marketing means having your marketing endeavors automated for mobile and it includes text, mobile landing pages, and automation.
