Upcoming Webinar: Retail Preparation for Holiday 2016

Gearing Up For Holiday 2016: Mobile Campaign Insights & Planning Tips

When you’re a retailer, or anyone who executes holiday campaigns really, planning for the holidays starts in spring. That's why we’re sharing some secrets to help maximize your mobile campaigns in our upcoming webinar. (Update: Webinar slides are available to view here.)

Mobile can drive consumers to visit your store, help them save money, share the latest promotion or sale and — on the purchasing front — help serve as an in-store companion or even as the primary channel for conversion.

We’re uniquely positioned to help retailers convert, given the volume of mobile messaging we enable for some of the world’s largest retailers. We gathered data from hundreds of retail apps during Holiday 2015 and consolidated the results  to bring you best practices based on response rates, innovative campaign ideas and tips to achieve higher engagement as we head into Holiday 2016.

Our webinar will be hosted by Stephanie Capretto, an Urban Airship strategic consultant who consults with clients on their mobile marketing strategies, and Senior Director of Product Marketing Bill Schneider. They will cover:

  • Key elements for a successful mobile holiday campaign

  • Methods to drive in-store traffic through mobile engagement

  • Innovative approaches and use cases to reach mobile users, with or without an app
