Gearing Up for the Coming Wave of Cell Phone Shoppers
By Joe Dysart

While businesses have long eyed the cell phone as a new revenue stream, recent market developments indicate the technology is finally beginning to deliver on its promise. By 2013, more than two billion consumers worldwide are expected to have made a purchase using their mobile, according to market research firm Juniper ( http://www.juniperresearch.com ). Plus, more than 20% of all businesses worldwide are already offering customers some way to make purchases or order services via cell phone, according to Juniper.

Businesses already engaging in text-message marketing, for example, regularly text-message established customers with news of private sales, special offers, coupons, and one-time clearance events. Others goose sales by alerting customers about coming price hikes.

And some are even using text messaging to enhance the service side of their business, such as alerting customers that a product that they’ve ordered has arrived, or forwarding along product delivery information from carriers like FedEx, UPS, or USPS. Still other businesses are mixing text-messaging advertising with more traditional forms in print, radio, TV, and Web. Such ads often feature a text message code that customers and potential customers can send to a business for more information about a product or service, or to initiate a purchase.

In each case, these businesses are building these text-messaging lists the same way they built their email marketing lists in the past —offering an incentive in e...
