The new Telephone Consumer Protection Act guidelines going into effect on October 16th 2013 require written, auditable consent for every consumer in a mobile database whereas previously consent could be express, meaning a company had previously done business with an individual. For those marketers not already using written consent for their opt-in programs, the new guidelines will require a significant change in how they structure their programs. Any company who is sending SMS messages as part of their marketing initiative need to follow the below guidelines:
This question exists for many. First, NEVER EVER purchase a list of mobile numbers. (SMS/MMS) marketing is permission based, and ultimately you want a list of customers numbers who are genuinely interested in your product or service and are happy to receive your text message and are likely to buy your goods and service. Remember, you can turn customers off and possibly upset a lot of your potential customers when sending text messages on their mobile devices without their consent.
Although investment in mobile marketing strategies like advergaming is slightly more expensive than what is intended for a mobile app, a good strategy can make the brand derive a substantial revenue. Games that use advergaming make the users remember better the brand involved. This memorization increases virality of the content so that the users tend to recommend them to their friends and acquaintances, and share them via social networks.
In the competitive consumer-focused world of marketing and advertising, businesses rely on your marketing or ad agency’s creativity and experience to help them outshine their competition and attract new leads. Your agency must demonstrate consistent success and a thorough understanding of consumers across industries in order to win new bids and maintain and grow existing contracts. How will you do it?
We’re firm believers that the follow-up is one of the most important elements of the selling process. After you fire off an email looking for an approval or confirmation, a short follow-up by text could be the perfect nudge to get your prospect to take a look. Remember, since 90 percent of text messages are read within a few minutes, there’s a good chance your SMS follow-up will be seen right away and prompt your prospect to answer.
Similar to email, SMS has anti-spam laws which differ from country to country. As a general rule, it’s important to obtain the recipient’s permission before sending any text message, especially an SMS marketing type of message. Permission can be obtained in a myriad of ways, including allowing prospects or customers to: tick a permission checkbox on a website, filling in a form, or getting a verbal agreement.
Concatenated messages can only fit 153 characters instead of 160. For example, a 177 character message is sent as 2 messages. The first is sent with 153 characters and the second with 24 characters. The process of SMS concatenation can happen up to 4 times for most bulk SMS providers, which allows senders a maximum 612 character message per campaign.
Take a stab at running a challenge solely for portable clients, whereby agreeing to accept instant messages they can be entered to win a free item or administration. Or on the other hand by agreeing to accept your “inward circle” they can be qualified to take an interest in standard contests, for example, question and answer contests, voting in favor of their most loved item or benefit, or some other sort of challenge or rivalry you can concoct. Holding customary fun contests is an incredible method to keep your clients locked in
This kind of advertisement is not only interesting, but also brings some benefits to marketers.

In the article cited at the beginning of this post, the author boldly claims that “a major chunk of the population is already registered with the DND.” First, there is no clear statistical research backing up this assumption. Second, in the U.S., the Do Not Call registry protects consumers from just that — unwanted calls. It’s designed to prevent telemarketers from harassing consumers. This has absolutely nothing to do with text messaging. Now, if for some reason you do find yourself receiving unwanted text messages, you can file a complaint. But, knowing the permission-based nature of this marketing method, you may never confront this issue.
There are essentially three major trends in mobile gaming right now: interactive real-time 3D games, massive multi-player games and social networking games. This means a trend towards more complex and more sophisticated, richer game play. On the other side, there are the so-called casual games, i.e. games that are very simple and very easy to play. Most mobile games today are such casual games and this will probably stay so for quite a while to come.
Don’t forget to include your SMS marketing campaign as part of your overall marketing plan. Place a call to action on all of your marketing products, print and digital, inviting customers to join your SMS circle by texting a message or code to your phone number (in exchange for a discount, freebie, or other reward). This will help to broaden your customer base as well as increasing sales.
