When most people think, I think the younger generation iPhone to talk and send SMS messages to millions of other young people in the chat, share photos and more. This is what corporate America is beginning to see, especially with clever marketing departments. Smaller companies and medium-sized companies really started to pay attention to what is established to pay young people to deal with iPhones and how to communicate. It is very different than most of us grew up. The fact that these companies have discovered, is a virtual gold mine for sales opportunities. This is how marketing with your iPhone, you can increase your profits.
First of all, you will need an account with several of the social marketing websites that are out there. If you are specifically looking to target iPhone users, who happen to have more disposable income than others.
This is based on the fact that they can afford a $500-600 cell phone. The websites you should be specifically looking into are Facebook and YouTube. No, these websites are not just for kids. Here is how powerful using social websites can be. Take Facebook for example. Have a programmer write a Facebook application for you to upload. This is not difficult and almost anyone with some knowledge of C++ or other language can do this for you. Have this application be unique and desirable. Perhaps make it a game, or a contact manager. Then offer a very desirable feature that can only be retrieved if they visit your website. For example, there is a fish tank application that offers glitter fish and other critters for your tank. You can only get these fish if you visit a website first.
Now here is how this marketing with your iPhone helps you. Your application gets downloaded by Susie who loves it. She also wants your special feature so she visits your website, which happens to sell upscale shoes, handbags and accessories. She fell in love with your product and ordered a bag. Then she sent a notice to all of her friends about your application. Then those contacts also visited your website and sent out more links and information about your application and website to others. The "viral" marketing has started and you really did not have to do much other than getting the application uploaded to Facebook. In a nutshell, this is how you can start marketing with your iPhone.
The iPhone plays a huge part in this marketing scenario listed above. You as a salesperson or marketer can use your iPhone to rate the uploaded application, keep track of who is downloading it, post messages to the blog about how great it is and invite everyone who has downloaded it to be your friend. Now, your list of friends becomes your potential customer database. You can send out special sales to these people because you know they fit into your companies demographics. More and more businesses are starting to catch onto this concept. This is one way that you can start marketing with your iPhone.
YouTube is another way to market with its iPhone. There are many ways that this site and use your iPhone with your company. Musicians can have a demo video to get it. Companies that can offer a product sample or an additional period. Please note that iPhone users can download and save videos on your iPhone and easily share with everyone. You want your video funny, worth, and its effectiveness. Mixers for sale? Why not a video on how not to use a blender. The same is true for vacuum cleaners.
As you can see, marketing the iPhone in the area of your business, using only some of them. Nevertheless, companies are more and more people join the revolution of social marketing. Now it's time to get to it before anyone else and does not distinguish itself from junk mail, spam and telemarketing.
