So far just this week I’ve received three text ads on my mobile phone from companies marketing products such as personal refinance, movie downloads and business incorporation.
It’s quickly becoming ever so clear to me that mobile phone marketing is here to stay and offers much opportunity to thriving businesses all over.
I mean think about….a large portion of the world now owns a mobile phone. I think the real number is somewhere around 4 and a half billion people walking around with that little computer right by their side, in their pocket or in their purse.
The business world is becoming increasingly aware of this notion as well.
Most customers have their home computers turned on for only about an hour per day, however, they have their cell phones on all day long.
It’s a viable way to keep your name and offers in front of potential clients in an ongoing manor.
Serious Internet Marketers have been toying around with the notion of earning money with mobile phone marketing for the last few years but the problem has always been that nobody really knew how to tackle and harness it.
Until now that is…..
