MOBILE ADVERTISING WITH SELLPHONE MARKETING: A Presentation of Capabilities
What exactly IS Mobile Advertising? Short Message Service (SMS) is the most widely used messaging vehicle for mobile marketing. Also known as "texting," SMS supports text messages of about 160 characters in length, depending on the handset and network. Worldwide, there are twice as many SMS users as there are email users. SMS supports common short codes (CSCs), which are abbreviated phone numbers - usually five or six digits - to which cell phone users can send text messages, and key words that define what happens next.

Why Mobile? 3/4/08, PR Newswire -- Twenty-three percent (58 million) of all U.S. mobile subscribers say they have been exposed to advertising on their phones in the past 30 days, according to a new report out today from The Nielsen Company. Half (51% or 28 million) of all data users who recall seeing mobile advertising in the previous 30 days say they responded to a mobile ad in some way. June ‘07, Direct Marketing Association -- 24% of mobile phone users have responded to a mobile marketing offer, according to a new survey by the Direct Marketing Association. Text message promotions were the most successful: 70% cited text messages as the avenue in which they responded to mobile marketing efforts. Of consumers who responded to mobile offers, 19% were between the ages of 15 and 17, 7% between 18 and 20, and 19% between 21 and 30. (That leaves 55% of respondents over the age of 30!) The survey also finds: 21% of mobile marketing responders participated in three or more offers per month; consumers who have never been married are the most likely of all marital status groups to respond to mobile marketing appeals; and those making more than $60,000 per year were more likely to respond to mobile offers than other consumers.
