Although there are many channels, the thing to remember is that consumers are using them. When it comes to delivering mobile coupons, it might be beneficial to speak to an expert. There are rules that govern how you initiate digital contact with a consumer. Whatever you do, do not spam prospective customers. The results will not be good.
