    Hey what's up everyone. Hope it's all going smooth for you and your business.

    I've been in IM business for quite a while but I know so little about SMS marketing, thus I come here for some advises.

    So I got this sms gateway from a good buddy of mine that's able to send 3 million text messages on a daily basis.


    • It costs relatively cheap per message. (10-20% cheaper than the market gets to offer in average)
    • It can ONLY send SMS to US numbers.
    • We have no subscriber (opt-in).

    I was just wondering for the given senario, what would you do to monetize the gateway?

    Would you go resell the messages to other IMs or would you rather do affiliate offers yourself?

    What type of affiliate progams should SMS marketing go for? I was thinking about day loan, adult dating etc.

    Most importantly, where to get all the numbers for targeted customers?

    I don't think I would go that far tho. FTC would trace my a$$ down. But definately the other side of the box. Thanks man!
