LONDON, August 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Incentivated, a leading mobile marketing and technology specialist, is sending picture messages (MMS) on behalf of Brakes Group to promote their M&J Seafood products. The campaign showcases the "catch of the day" as soon as it lands in port each morning. This is a UK first for a food wholesaler.
The MMS includes a "click to call" action that allows recipients to call their nearest M&J Seafood branch and place an order for the freshest fish. The MMS showcases the types of fish landed that morning, as well as providing information about the catch's provenance.
All M&J Seafood B2B advertising materials; posters, flyers, social media sites, websites, banner ads etc - will include an SMS call to action to opt-in to receive free updates for fresh fish.
Eroll Chimanga, Brakes Group's eCommerce Manager: "We are really pleased to be able to deliver a UK-first for a wholesaler with this service using Incentivated. We recognise that 'mobile' is increasingly important for business as well as retail customers."
Jonathan Bass, Managing Director, Incentivated: "By bringing together the effectiveness of a click-to-call mechanism with a B2B MMS message, many restaurant owners now have a greater choice of the freshest fish which means they can make timely purchasing decisions. The DMA/IAB messaging research from late last year applies as much to the wholesale market as the retail one; recipients notice picture message advertising."
