    It depends on what "branch" of mobile marketing you're talking about, as in mobile banner ads and text message marketing.

    I personally think text message marketing currently has more potential to gain a larger following than mobile banner advertising. While both are very affordable, I think text message marketing is much more cost-effective as the traffic is very targeted (so long as it's opt-in, which it usually is) and more widely viewed, as mobile ads are usually limited to games and browsers, while text messaging is used by nearly everyone with a cell phone.

    I think in a few years when the vast majority of cell phone users use the Internet frequently on mobile devices, mobile ads will be more worthwhile (but also more expensive), whereas text message marketing is currently more practical.

    In fact, I'm starting up with iZigg next week or the week after to sell text message marketing products to local businesses. It requires a referral (sponsor), so if you're interested, let me know and I'll hook you up.

    Mobile marketing will be big but not for straight sales.... but for exposure..

    Smart mobile phones are everywhere and the numbers are growing rapidly...

    the only problem is that when people get the message or ad... they are hardly ever in the buying mode..... and if they are.... the method of payment is one where not a lot of people(comparatively speaking) are yet comfortable with...

    a lot of IM people have tried mobile marketing........ and most lose money.

    SMS marketing is already huge. You know those 'Text XXXX to see if you and your partner are soul mates!'. That shit makes bank.

    I'm starting an SMS ad network. Looking to get $0.09 per ad impression from advertisers. Do you think that will fly?

    It is a very different model and targeted, details will be available after our launch.

    Generally speaking, phone users are opt in, and advertisers will be able to target by demographic (age/gender), location, keywords, time of day and more. I am looking to get some interest on the advertiser side and want to get some feedback on the rates that you feel advertisers would be willing to pay.


    I know 9 cents per impression is much higher than industry standards, but mobile marketing is not a standard and is at a premium. It also offers much more than other mature methods of electronic advertising.


    Thanks for the input!

    I'd say it's the next trend for sure. I just posted a great download that has templates and outlines if you need 'em.

    Ping call is... (Was ?)

    I explain what is it :
    • Open for free a surcharged phone line.
    • Generate 5.000 phone numbers list from an interval (easily).
    • Ping call every numbers (rang and hung up) in one time with bulk call generator/center.
    • Now wait people call back your surcharged phone number...

    All this system is free because call pings comes from your internet connection.
    Many people do that in Europe, I don't know about other countries.

    It's easy but illegal, so don't do it.

    Mobile Marketing is definitely going to grow as more and more people purchase smartphones. But as someone already stated, it is years away.

    When you say "most lose money" - that is interesting. It is so tough to lose money selling mobile marketing services, unless you are talking about someone trying to set up their own platform. For the IM using a third party service, there is barely anything to lose.

    I have begun on a very small scale for test purposes and I am profitable by far.
