What This Means To You

Yesterday’s post showed just how big the in-app ad market could be. To take full advantage of that market, providing users with rewards is important. The good news is that it also gives you opportunity to gain more information on potential customers. Whether the rewards are for loyalty points, discounts or even free shipping, take the time to ask a few questions. The more you know about a customer the deeper your relationship will be. By simply asking for their birthday, and then sending them an ecard on their big day, you’ll probably earn a new customer. Keep the questions short and let consumers know that you will not share their information, And then, and this is important, don’t share their information.
