How to use mobile marketing to reach your audience/customers?
Mobile phones are everywhere today and people almost always have their cell phones with them. Has anyone used mobile marketing to reach your customers? What do you think should be the factors to consider when using mobile marketing? What will work and what will not work — especially from the perspective of the small business owner? Is it something that business owners need to try NOW or should small businesses let the big boys try it out first?
I would recommend you hold off. Its still very expensive and the volume is not there. Targeting is not where is should be yet. And contrary to what you hear – many large advertisers are not using mobile. People are still scared and don’t know how to effectively use it. There is one cheap efficient way to use mobile – Google Mobile. You can have a sponsored link in appear on mobile phones if you have an adwords account. Its pretty cheap and you pay per click.

Poll: How effective has mobile marketing been for you?
Mobile marketing is the process of using an application to set up campaigns based on demographics of customers. Sending out promotional, viral and competition text messages to the appropriate people.
Mobile marketing is set to be the next big thing- it is more effective than any other type of marketing because it is so personal, ie if you receive a text message, you are bound to read it, even if just out of curiosity. However, it is only effective (and legal) if you have opted in to receive these messages (otherwise it is spam). This system is currently being tried out in shopping centers- imagine walking past a store and receiving a text message informing you of a special offer. Marketing doesn’t get any better than that!
