[A shorter read than the top 10 reasons to love mobile wallet campaigns]
Hey there! Happy holiday week if you’re US based (or US by some other means) and in honor of the holiday, we thought we’d capitulate to all those stats and trainer videos that talk about making a listicle in order to get more page views for your online stuff 😉
#5 – You don’t need an app to do this.
Heck, you don’t even need a website to do this. Or much of anything else other than the ability to fill out a form and proofread the mobile wallet campaign copy on a phone.
If you’re not familiar with how mobile wallet campaigns work, here’s the .05 summary –
- We use Apple Wallet for iOS. We can use any third party wallet for Android.
- Give us one graphic and a square version of your icon or logo.
- Pick three colors.
- Choose a couple of blog posts/podcasts/landing pages/etc that you want to link.
- Decide whether you want to include CTAs like Click to Call, Click to Email or something else entirely.
Yep, that’s about it. Our system does the rest for you.
#4 – You don’t need servers or programmers, nope, none of that.
Can we just refer to #5 above? It’s so simple that my grandma could figure this one out, and she could be promoting with lock screen updates and infinitely customizable content changes to her passes.
It’s easier than putting together a WordPress site, takes less money than email marketing, Facebook marketing or any other online marketing RIGHT NOW.
#3 – Get SMS response rates without having to send SMS messages.
Yes, it is. We said it, our competitors say it, the stats say it, and it’s true. You’re using the LOCK SCREEN to send the updates and that’s the thing that everyone looks at around 150 times each day on average. It’s a compelling call to action and it gets results.
Unlike SMS, there’s no big fine from the FCC waiting for you if accidentally send to the wrong number. Why is that? Because there’s no phone number involved. It’s SO much easier to get someone to drop a Wallet campaign pass into their mobile than it is to beg them for their phone number or their email address or to get explicit permission to message them.
#2 – It’s as easy as getting social media likes and follows.
You don’t need to be a genius here. Nope, not at all. As a matter of fact, if you qualify for a real job at NASA, this might not be for you. We can’t say for certain because one of our partners is qualified to work there, and he is pretty good with our system to tell you the truth.

If you can tell people to follow you on social media like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, then you can promote your business or service using a mobile wallet campaign. That’s it, nothing too complicated or too hard. You can tell them to share your pass with their friends, neighbors, co-workers and family – making your stuff go viral way faster and more easily than almost any other method.
#1 – We’re selling it WAY too cheaply right now.
What? Huh? How do you mean? Yes, we know what’s going through your head about right now. It’s true! The ROI on this is slick, it’s amazing, it’s absolutely one of the most cost effective ways to market your business or services or your podcast or whatever you want to promote. We WANT you to get a chance to try it and see just how easy it is to promote your business or services with it.
We’ve been using mobile wallet campaign passes for more than a year now, and we LOVE them – it makes it so easy to talk to our customers directly, using their mobile phone. — Seasonal Lee
Unlike building your own app, or sending SMS, there are no hidden expenses, and no chance of losing your account because your email provider or social network didn’t like your promotion (like we haven’t all seen that happen before).
Heck, you can do the $7 Digital Business Card to try it out for only $7 — that’s like a trip to Starbucks on a weekday morning.
It won’t be that cheap forever.
