Mobile Marketing for Your Coin Laundry

Almost everyone uses a smartphone these days. Hence, mobile marketing can be an effective way to spread the word about your coin laundry operation. These four tips will get you started on building a successful mobile marketing strategy for your business:

  1. Know Your Market

Your target customers would be college students, working adults or young families. These groups typically spend a lot time on various online platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. You need to understand their interests, the devices they are using and what type of marketing ads will catch their attention in order to plan your coin laundry mobile marketing campaign.

  1. Design Your Message

Getting the right message across to your target customers is key to successful mobile marketing. What can your coin laundry offer to customers when they are on the go? How can your services help solve their laundry problems? Your mobile marketing message may be different from your non-mobile marketing as you need to tailor your message to customers who are on the move.

  1. Be Specific in Targeting

A successful mobile marketing strategy often targets a specific group of customers. You need to design a campaign specially for mobile device users. For example, you could run a promotion only for smartphone users where they flash a special code on their phones to get a discount on laundry rates.

  1. Mobile Friendliness

You need to cater to digital devices with smaller screens compared to laptops and desktops. Hence, mobile marketing messages must be short yet impactful. Using bright colour scheme in your images will help capture readers’ attention. A well-designed video with a humorous angle or creative delivery may also appeal to your target customers.

Real-time analytics from your digital marketing campaigns will tell you what works and what does not. Act on those insights and constantly refine your campaign to get the best results from mobile marketing for your coin laundry.

How to Create Effective Facebook Ads

Online presence on social media for modern day businesses is a must. One of the most popular platforms is Facebook. If you plan to use Facebook ads to generate leads for your coin laundry business, here are 5 tips to create ads that work on Facebook:

  1. Be creative

A creative ad will stand out and increase click-through rates. Use interesting images related to your coin laundry and choose bright colours to catch the attention of readers. Video ads should be lively. A little humour helps too.

  1. A powerful headline

By now, you should already know your potential customers’ pain points and desires. Your ad’s headline should call out to your ideal customers based on their pain points such as lack of laundry facility, no space to dry their laundry etc. A great way to get a reaction is to pose a question as a headline.

  1. Great ad copy

An effective ad copy addresses your customers’ pain points, provides a solution, and presents an offer. An example for your coin laundry business: a pain point would be lack of drying space, solution is dryer machines, and offer would be a discount for dryers at your shop. Use appropriate images to support your ad copy. Keep your ad copy concise and make sure it is mobile-friendly.

  1. An irresistible offer

If you want to generate leads through Facebook ads, make sure you offer potential customers something irresistible such as free wash for the first week of the month or special discount for the month. Give them a motivation to check out your coin laundry service. Set a deadline for the offer to add a sense of urgency and encourage immediate action.

  1. Keep it simple

Complicated words and long explanations are a big turn-off for Facebook ads. Use simple language that a primary school student can understand. If people have to spend time figuring out your message, they are most likely going to skip your ad.

A well-constructed Facebook ad will go a long way to increase the visibility of your coin laundry business online. If you need in-depth advice on promoting your coin laundry, PLE Laundry Equipment Sdn. Bhd. can help you. Contact us at 016 – 262 2965 or 03 – 5633 6405 today.
