This is not a newbie venture guys, sorry I'm just gonna lay it out in general terms, nothing step by step, because it's really about your own creative. Making money with SMS texting is pretty much the same as having an email list, what's the difference? You are garunteed to make money when you send or recieve each text message. American idol makes Millions of dollars from their text voting alone. A dollar per text vote. Just to see their favorite person win the competition. Guess how much it costs them to make that voting possible. One cent per text, or less. What makes this possible? Google "SMS gateway(s)" and "sms sending". All you gotta do now, is be the next american idol, ya right. So what else do people wanna pay for? Stocks, jokes, match making, sports scores. These are the top ones, but what else? this is where you gotta use your knowledge. SMS is huge.
