Ways to do Mobile Marketing

SMS marketing

SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging,text messages traditionally can’t exceed 160 characters. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. SMS marketing services typically run off a short code. Short codes are 5 or 6 digit numbers that have been assigned by all the mobile operators in a given country for the use of brand campaign and other consumer services.Mobile marketing via SMS has expanded rapidly in Europe and Asia as a new channel to reach the consumer.Having a list of SMS subscribers gives you a powerful access to your customers.

After all, if you own a restaurant, wouldn’t you want to have an ad pop up when someone searches for “restaurants near my house”? Mobile ad campaigns can be bought on a cost-per-click basis, a cost-per-thousand basis or a cost-per-acquisition basis.
