Picreel is already mobile-ready, offering users templates designed specifically for optimal viewing on mobile devices. We also made sure to get ahead of Google’s latest algorithm update regarding intrusive interstitials, which can include popups. Picreel users can use our mobile popup templates confidently, knowing they meet Google’s requirements and won’t be penalized with lower page rankings.
The logical next question then is: how do you take advantage of mobile traffic?
With Picreel’s integration with Mobit, a mobile messaging and marketing platform, now you can do more than just collect emails and display offers. By collecting mobile phone numbers, you can also create mobile marketing campaigns through Mobit, effectively adding a whole new channel for reaching your customers and prospects.
How It Works
Instead of email addresses, Picreel will be building a list of mobile phone numbers for use in the Mobit app. Here’s how it works:
- Set up your popup campaign in Picreel using a mobile template. This can be a mobile only campaign with only one field for the phone number; or you can have a desktop version as well to collect emails.
- Set the targeting parameters so that the mobile popup displays at an appropriate time: after so many seconds on a page, after scrolling “up” a certain percentage, etc. Keep in mind that intrusive popups that display instantly, before page content even loads, are the ones that are being penalized.
- When mobile users see the popup, they will be prompted to enter their phone number (instead of email address) in order to unlock the offer.
- By entering their phone number, they opt-in to receive text messaging from you.
- Through the integration with Mobit, phone numbers are automatically funneled from Picreel over to Mobit, added to the appropriate list, and a workflow is triggered that sends an introductory text message.
- From here, you will manage your future mobile messaging campaigns as usual in Mobit!
