Text Message Advertising: The Basics
If you own a cell phone or mobile device, you’re probably already aware of text message advertising. In fact, this promotional method has been used by Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, huge corporations….even politicians running for the highest office in the land. What kind of people create text messaging campaigns? Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are only two personalities who have used this type of promotion in the past.
Text message advertising is extremely simple. Using short message service (SMS), companies and individuals create a short, word-based message touting special products, sales, services, ideas or Web sites. This message gets sent to a wide audience of mobile users to help spread the word and create attention-getting buzz. Think of it as a television commercial for the mobile world.
