I have been so captivated about this new and exciting marketing trend that I set up this blog to gather ideas, comments and input from experts, professionals as well as ordinary citizens. My goal is to get this site as the central, focus point on pertinent news, information and developing trends about the text message or short code marketing industry.
Remember the internet about 10 to 15years ago? What did the ‘experts’ say then?
Where are they now? And by the way, who has not heard of Bill Gates?
Now let me make a very bold statement!
I believe that the mobile text marketing industry is going to be the next biggest thing since the internet! Businesses which learn, use and capitalize on this trend will thrive and grow; those which do not will simply die! Individuals who understand and take advantage of this trend by exposing and marketing the product to businesses (small, medium and large) will generate substantial fortune!
And businesses who OFFER these services have the potential of creating unimaginable wealth to its investors and owners (remember Microsoft and Google).
Now, don’t take my word for it, listen to the following quotes:
o Mobile marketing is changing the advertising and marketing landscape the same way that the internet did a decade ago’. Source: Unknown.
o ‘There will be more than 350 billion text messages sent in the US alone this year’. Source: Mobile Marketing Association
o Short code text message advertising is the most powerful advertising medium ever invented’ Source: New York Times.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will discuss the following:
o What is mobile/sms/ text marketing? How does it work?
o What does “short code” mean? Why is it so important?
o Hint: Remember the domain name on the internet? The short code is the equivalent on your mobile device! I’ll show you how to get one inexpensively!
o If you are a small business owner (restaurant, bar, car wash, grocery store, car dealership, real estate) how do you get a leg up in your neighborhood?
o If you are an individual who wants to take advantage of this trend. How and where do you start?
o And much more!!
Stay tuned and let me hear from you.
