Mobile Marketing via MMS
Brands are delivering promotional content such as mobile music to mobile games to drive consumer engagement. This mobile content is delivered via MMS (Multimedia Message Service). Brands are also leveraging consumer generated content. A good example of this is Motorola ongoing campaigns at House of Blues venues where the brand allows the consumer to send their mobile photos to the LED board in real-time as well as blog their images online.
Mobile Marketing via Bluetooth
The rise of Bluetooth started around 2003 and a few companies in Europe have started establishing successful businesses. Most of these businesses offer “Hotspot-Systems” which consist of some kind of content-management system with a Bluetooth distribution function. This technology has the advantages that it is permission-based, has higher transfer speeds and is also a radio-based technology and can therefore not be billed (i.e. is free of charge).
Mobile Marketing via Infrared
Infrared is the oldest and most limited form of Mobile Marketing. Some European companies have experimented with “shopping window marketing” via free Infrared waves in the late 90s. However, Infrared has a very limited range (~ approx. 10cm – 1meter) and could never really establish itself as a leading Mobile Marketing technology.
User Controlled Media
Mobile marketing differs from most other forms of marketing communication in that it is often user (consumer) initiated, called Mobile Originated (or MO) message, and requires the express consent of the consumer to receive future communications. A call delivered from a server (business) to a user (consumer) is similarly called a Mobile Terminated (or MT) message. This infrastructure points to a trend set by mobile marketing of consumer controlled marketing communications.
