Mobile Deep Linking Examples Among the Internet Retailer 500
Deep linking to mobile apps from marketing channels typically associated with web browsers is still a nascent concept. Currently about half of the Internet Retailer 500 have an app for iOS or Android yet most omnichannel marketing efforts lead smartphone and tablet users to a mobile website without consideration for the app which may be installed on the user’s device. This leads to lost engagement and revenue especially among loyal app users.
Mobile deep linking can mean linking from one mobile app to another but typically it means linking to an app from a Web browser. The URLgenius platform supports deep linking from any browser-based marketing tactic to any app on iOS or Android. URLgenius makes it incredibly easy to create and scale deep links to tens of millions of product pages. Every marketing channel can now easily help drive app downloads and engagement.

Mobile app shoppers are known to spend more time and more money compared to mobile website users. So why do retailers continuously send traffic from multi-channel campaigns to mobile websites while not even checking for the app first?
The simple reason is that the technology needed to detect and link to a mobile app simply didn’t exist. Now with URLgenius, any link for any marketing channel can be updated so it can detect and open a mobile app or a mobile website. You can even setup the link to let your consumers choose between app and web.
URLgenius links can be used in any marketing channel including display advertising, search marketing, email, and social marketing or even as a TV call-to-action. There are no SDKs or APIs to install, making it easy to do a proof of concept at no charge.
