Like I’ve said many times previous, mobile marketing using SMS is almost like email marketing in the mid-90s. Every morning, I receive a Yahoo Weather update (not sure why I do this still as I have an iPhone and “weather” app is built in) and on the bottom of each update is an ad. Here are a few of them:
- *Follow Perf Go Green-Reply PGOG
- *Lets-go-Camping@Best Buy! http://4info.net/x/7so1
- *Free Wifi @ Courtyard by Marriot
I have no idea what Perf Go Green is, I don’t want to go camping at Best Buy, and I’m not staying at a Courtyard by Marriot anytime soon.
As you can see, the “sms marketing” space is a bit crowded… screenshot taken this morning on Google.
Just wait until the Nigerian Spammer starts using SMS marketing.
