“Blackberry Messenger Marketing is the most important and effective marketing strategy in the industry today bar none.” – Seventy Nine PR, August 10th, 2011
It’s been something we have been working on for a while now. But the events over the last month across the UK has confirmed what we have been working towards.
“Forget social media, Blackberry Messenger is the way to go in marketing your business”.
It’s not a comment that Seventy Nine PR makes lightly. In fact, it is made with a lot of insight.
The way to guage the effectiveness of any service/application is the take up. Or in marketing parlance -the rate of the take up. In the case of Blackberry Messenger or BBM or BB ping to use street venacular, the take-up has been phenomenal.
Nothing illustrates our point better than the use of BlackBerry Messenger or BBM during the UK riots that plagued the UK recently. The unrest in Iran and Egypt was communicated by the masses using Twitter. But in the UK, it appears that Blackberry Messenger or BBM is the favoured method of planning the unrest that has swept across the country.
So why should every marketing professional in the world build Blackberry Messenger marketing into their communications plan?
All this points to the simple question – why have so many UK marketeers missed the BBM trick? If it has so many benefits then why hasn’t the brightest marketing brains built this into their marketing strategies.
Great question – the answer is that they are not all as smart as us bods here at Seventy Nine PR. It’s one of the reasons we won a fully integrated marketing pitch for and online retailer from web design, web development, SEO to social media and PR. (More on this account win soon).
