Some brief facts about this newly launched smartwatch by Apple:
Now when you know about this wearable device by Apple, let us further deal in detail how Apple Watch will change the way you market your product or service.
The wearable technology, in addition to improving the customer experience and making business more efficient, will also create new business opportunities. Smart pieces of wearable technology let the marketers collect information on the buying habits and locations of the customer. This, in turn, opens up new opportunities for marketing, including insights into user interaction and collection of customer data.
This means that enterprises need to develop apps as per new wearable gadgets that lead to more downloading and ultimately more usage.
The marketers also have the option to advertise their retail store by displaying “Apple Pay is accepted here.” While checking out from their smartwatch, when the customers will read this, they will enter your shop rather than your competitor that does not offer such facilities.
In regards to customers, every time Apple Pay will be used, one time payment number and a unique security code will be generated. No card information will be actually transmitted.
The need of the hour is that marketers should create personalized content which is adjustable on small screen devices like Apple Watch. Simple pictures and short updates are more engaging than long articles and videos. The main aim of marketing through social media on wearable devices is to get more engagement with the help of crisp content.
This functionality is available in phones, it will be much more effective when the customers will be able to receive feedback on their wrists. When this feedback will feel just like a normal tap, it will capture much more attention of the Apple Watch wearers. Marketers will be able to notify the customers about the new products, best deals or discounts as they pass by.
This is a big opportunity for marketers. Imagine a person looking for a restaurant, and as he passes by your restaurant, he gets a notification of 25% discount at your restaurant, which will expire in the next 30 minutes. Viola! That person will step into your restaurant to avail the discount and you have won yourself a new customer.
With the advent of Apple Watch, marketers and developers are getting a lot of opportunities. While Apple Watch app developers will have to create new apps for smartwatch users, marketers need to come up with customized content, optimized strategies and new deals that they can offer to Apple Watch users. New social media platforms should be designed for the Apple Watch and Smartwatch users. This will give both small and big enterprises another platform to direct their ads. These tactics will be more effective because the watch is more personal to the owner than any other device.
