Mobile Solutions

Tribune Direct can help you build an opt-in mobile database that is tied to your current customer information.  It’s fine to have a mobile database, but value does it hold without knowing who those numbers actually belong to in your customer list?  Are they current customers?  Do they live close to your store?  Tribune Direct can tell you.  Using cutting-edge mobile technology, we personalize the individual SMS/MMS message to each recipient for a more relevant mobile experience.  Our solution is cross-platform, so it will work seamlessly on all major providers and operating systems (Android, iOS, Windows, Blackberry).

Opportunities Include:

  • Mobile coupons personalized to the individual.
  • SMS reminders and trigger-based programs.
  • MMS messages to deliver highly-personal video / audio messages to the recipient.
  • Mobile data matched to the individual address.
