    So, I'm planning on offering a bulk SMS service at rates less than half Twilio's prices, but I have a certain quota to meet to make profit (let's arbitrarily 500k messages/month), and I have a few questions that I hope the BHW community will help me answer:

    1. Should I just make a higher minimum, or set a lower minimum in hopes of making more sales?
    2. Will I have trouble making that minimum?
    3. Is there a large interest in bulk SMS services for BHW?

    What is the best way for a non-Jr. VIP to go about GETTING a service thread? Should I contact a Jr. VIP and offer a percentage of profits in exchange for representing my services, or just wait until I myself am a Jr. VIP (this will not be for a while)?

    I don't want this market to go untapped any longer than it has to, and I'd HATE to get muscled out by someone else with similar industry connections.


    Disclaimer: This is NOT a sales or pre-sales thread. Do not contact me about buying bulk SMS services until I have launched the sales thread (whenever that may be). I will open pre-sales when I am ready. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Haha, I already have the business schematics drawn up so I plan to do that quite well ;) The problem comes from implementing said blueprints.

    In a way, I suppose, yes; but who better to ask than A.) the demographic I plan to monetize, and B.) a demographic who specializes in monetization?
