Mobile Marketing Services
At times, technology surprises us in many ways. Initially, the companies incorporated the provision to make and receive calls using cell phones. Then they came up with short messaging services. These days, multimedia messaging has taken over the SMS based services. In the remaining sections, we will consider how mobile marketing can be effective.
These days literally anyone and everyone have access to one or more mobile phones. This prompted the marketing agencies to think about methods to exploit the common person. Mobile marketing services started with the relatively unknown note. However, whether you believe you not, you are still a part of this innovative paradigm (i.e. if you have a subscription to a mobile service provider).
According to the latest estimates, trillions of short messages are passing through the servers located at the messaging centers. The domain involves passing your messages to a specific group of people. As with all kinds of marketing procedures, the target audience will play an important role in the effectivity of this form of marketing. Let us state that we have access to the right kind of sources that will enable us to deliver brief and informative short messages to targets!
Just think about it; within a few moments of subscribing to our service, we will begin to convey your messages to thousands of people who hold a valid mobile subscription service. We deal with mobile marketing via SMS and mobile marketing via MMS. You can utilize the former service for those old-timers who are still holding on to their golden age phones (these gadgets will not support advanced messaging services like MMS).
In-game mobile marketing is yet another niche in which we specialize. The agenda is to display your advertisements while the owner of the cell phone is indulging in gaming sessions. Some of the mobile phones of this age have the computational capacity than an average desktop!
Shopping malls and other places of interest tend to utilize mobile marketing in ulterior manners. For instance, they will not rely on an external messaging server (maintained by a cellular service provider). It is possible to transmit messages through Bluetooth and infrared technologies. The latter requires the mobile phone receiver and the transmitter unit to be in LOS (line of sight). Hence, we have narrowed down to Bluetooth enabled mobile marketing only.
Location based mobile marketing paradigms are also gaining importance today. Why must we ignore the domain? After all, marketing is all about using all the available resources to the maximum possible extent. Although we deal with bulk messaging systems, we respect the privacy of the mobile phone owners. The messages will be sent only during the day-hours. There are numerous privacy concerns regarding mobile marketing. However, if you look closely, disadvantages exist for any other form of marketing procedure too. We need to weed out those factors and concentrate just on the vantages - so that it will turn out to be a win-win situation for the consumer as well as the service provider.
