To get your mobile content in shape just in time for the beach follow these tips:

Work Out Strategies
For every weight-loss regimen out there is a content marketing strategy equivalent. When planning your strategy for getting your content into the perfect beach body shape, you need to consider what equipment is best for what you need. Would your app be best for Android, IOS or both? Do you want to share it with Apple and Google Play or stick with one? How many and which social sites will it be compatible to share with? How much do you really need to change to reach your goal? Most importantly, who is your target audience? You should wait until your audience is defined and your regimen is clear before creating an app or mobile site.  

Know What’s On The Menu
The market for mobile features is constantly being updated with the latest and greatest to date. From panoramic images to descriptive videos or slideshows, there is a wide variety of ways to transform your content from good to brilliant. With the latest Adobe Digital Publishing Suite APIs, you can now even create your own unique experience that reflects your brand with a custom storefront, library, and navigational elements like buttons.  In order for you to create the app or site you desire, you first need to read the menu and know what options you have.

It’s All In Moderation
The transition from familiarity to something entirely new can be frightening but, as they say, “out with old, in with the new.” The way you publish your content says who you are as a brand. For example, when Top Gear decided to produce a mobile app to encourage people to try a new car they knew simple text and images wouldn’t cut it. Their brand is renowned for one of the best auto brands in the world for reliability, class and excitement. Their audience wants to see 360 views of the car, videos of the updates and even a link to where their local dealer is.  With DPS’s integrated video and one-click options, your brand can now provide your audience with that interaction right from the convenience of their own home. Find what your audience wants and make your brand’s mobile content just that.

The Final Weigh In
After you’ve created your mobile content, placed it on the platform of choice and targeted your specific audience it’s time to track your success. As if weighing in after a typical workout regime, the data from your work will show whether you’ve reached your goal or not. From a start-up company trying to get your first few hundred customers to a major brand aiming to get your next million, the click-through rate along with the number of unique visitors and units sold will prove just how in shape you now are.

Whether it’s as extreme as a complete new site with every feature involved or as simple as using KPI’s to update your storefront, Adobe DPS is constantly creating new opportunities to help you reach that beach-ready content.
