One of the first and still most common forms of mobile marketing is SMS text messaging. SMS marketing
SMS marketing (cont.) SMS marketing is the communication between brand, marketer and customer using a cellphone’s short message service (SMS). One can also think of SMS marketing as a portable billboard, magazine, TV or radio: the message is carried around with the customer, it’s personal, location sensitive, potentially invasive and deliberate.
SMS marketing (cont.) MMS (multimedia message service) marketing is the next level of SMS marketing. Most modern phones and all smartphones have color screens and can accept images, video and audio clips in their wireless messages. This enables marketers to send color messages to customers. SMS messages have a maximum of 160 characters, whereas MMS messages allow the transmission of 300KB of data.
