StrongMail, a leading provider of email marketing and cross-channel marketing solutions, today announced new and enhanced mobile marketing capabilities, including the industry-first ability to analyze email engagement at the device level. By introducing the ability to measure clicks and conversions across desktops, tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices in one single-view dashboard, StrongMail enables marketers to quickly gauge the effectiveness of their campaigns with mobile consumers.
The company also announced unparalleled support for location-based SMS programs. Complete integration of SMS messaging within StrongMail's Message Studio cross-channel marketing platform enables enterprise marketers to fully embrace the power of mobile marketing to increase audience engagement and improve campaign performance.
By enabling marketers to analyze email opens, clicks and conversions at the device level, StrongMail is the first solution provider that makes it possible for email marketers to understand the full impact of mobile on their programs. The combination of StrongMail's drag-and-drop lifecycle marketing solution combined with integrated support for geo-targeting and other advanced SMS marketing capabilities puts marketers in a powerful position to launch cross-channel campaigns or standalone SMS programs.
"Frontier Airlines prides itself in connecting with our customers, as we fly them to more than 75 destinations," said Crissy Davis, Director of CRM and Loyalty for Frontier Airlines. "We were searching for new ways to engage our customers in a marketing dialogue, and StrongMail's SMS capabilities give us a great way to reach them in the airport. By allowing customers to text their email addresses to our short code, we can engage them in our email programs, keeping them informed of the latest offers and benefits of flying with Frontier."
Only 56% of businesses are currently conducting mobile marketing, with lack of strategy and resources being the top barriers to adoption, according to an upcoming Mobile Marketing Survey sponsored by StrongMail. By combining proven, easy-to-use technology with award-winning marketing services, StrongMail is paving the way for more marketers to experience how integrating SMS messaging into new and existing cross-channel programs can dramatically improve engagement and performance.
