Any good marketing campaign strategy strives to answer this essential question: Are we reaching the right customer, with the right message, at the right time?
Answering that question isn't easy, but doing so is vital. By collecting data on concept and product development, market trends, branding key performance indicators, campaign measurement, customer satisfaction, communication, and creative, you'll be empowered to take a more strategic marketing approach.
Moreover, selecting the right medium for gathering feedback can reduce cost, improve reach, and speed up your data collection. The trick is to get data quickly enough that it can guide internal decision-making—which makes mobile surveys a great option.
