Hi Instructor,

I have been a white label client with Lime Cellular for seven months and I can't say enough good things about them.

They have all the usual features you’d want in an SMS marketing platform, including scheduling of messages, text2win, polls, questionnaires, WAP coupons with built in tracking of views and redeems, a WAP ad builder, multiple lists, etc. I spent several months researching providers and decided upon Lime for several reasons.

First, I've been able to deal directly with the owner of the company, and he has been very responsive and usually replies to emails within a few hours, even on the weekend. They also have regular webinars for clients about how to use the platform and new features.

Second, unlike others, Lime isn't competing with their White Label partners. They are strictly a developer and own the short code, but they don't go sell the service on a retail level. They want to work with marketers like us, not compete against us.

Third, they are continually developing the platform. The developers log on their website always has one or two updates every week, and they are always adding new features.

From the admin panel, you can log into each of your client's accounts to manage them. You also have the option of giving them login access to manage their own accounts. It is a very easy system either way you want to do it. The integration with my website is seamless so if you decide to give your customers access, they will never know it is Lime’s software and not yours.

I think Lime Cellular is the best white label SMS marketing platform.

Lime Cellular does work in Canada. Here is their list of supported Canadian carriers:

Aliant Mobility
MTS Mobility
SaskTel Mobility
Vidéotron
Mobilicity
Bell Mobility
NorthernTel Mobility
Télébec Mobilité
Virgin Mobile Canada
Fido
Rogers Wireless
TELUS Mobility
WIND Mobile

I think Lime Cellular is the best white label SMS marketing platform.

Thanks, T J, that info is helpful as I'm again in the market. I have seen mobileStorm often, but did not know that they have a reseller program. I may look into that. I also have spoken with AvidMobile, but am confused as to why they need to charge me a monthly fee to be a reseller. Do you happen to know if Lime Cellular charges? I'm not high on the idea of buying texts and reselling them. A reseller that sells under that company's name, IMO, should not have to purchase it and resell it. Even if you brand the product as your own, I think having a buy rate established by the company is enough - after all, I am bringing them the new customer, why should I be charged to do it? Just my two cents.

Two other questions - do they do QR codes and mobile websites?

I am signed up with one that I would completely NOT recommend, so if anyone needs to know one to stay away from, let me know, as I don't want to publicly call them out.

Jason,

Every company charges you a monthly fee, it is simply a matter of how they access it. They could have an upfront fee you pay from the beginning, or charge you per keyword. Each mobile marketing provider is paying the fee to own a short code (or long code) and these are not cheap to possess and are also tedious to maintain (making sure all of your resellers are compliant, stay in good standing with carriers, etc.)

Obviously the more clients you place on to a short code, the quicker your availabity of keywords diminishes, resulting in you having to license new codes and absorb more cost. Also depending on the size of the company, they are continually paying to advance the capabilities there platform has as to keep up with the ever changing technology advancements, and expand support so they can continue to satisfy your needs. For example a company like ours has both marketing and technology support both, which means our company has to pay an abundance of support agents to be there for our partners, helping to ensure their success.
It is a hard decision to make and a life changing one to say the least, hopefully this helped you out a little bit.

I don't have the details on them yet. I've spoken to reps at them and scheduled demos for this week. I know there are a few with a free start-up solution, but most have a start-up cost. Best thing to do is sign up for a demo with these providers and talk to the reps. You'll get better first hand info that way. I can tell you that there are several users of Avid and Limecellular here in the WF.

As for websites, again, some do and some don't.

With QR Codes, a few of them do provide generators. I've been looking into QR Generators with advanced features and I'll come back here with my results this week.

Hi James,
It's nice to see someone from these companies is staying in touch with the conversations here on the WF. I honestly thought a few more reps would show up to this thread.

TJ,

I was aware of the forum for a long time, but never really made too much time for it. I was pressured in to it by a few of our partners who actively post on here, ha ha.

A lot of companies offer a ton of different features. If you look at 10 different providers you are going to find 10 different things you really like that the other providers may not offer.

Obviously this holds true for pricing structures as well. When you speak to rep's ask them to show you a performa so you can evaluate long term pricing of not only that given company, but the competition. When you take in to consideration messaging prices, keywords fee's, etc, you will get a better understanding of what company will be the best fit for you. As I stated before this is a decision for the long term and you are choosing a company you want to grow and expand with.

I wanted to throw the company "Trumpia" into this mix, just because I didn't see them elsewhere in this thread. It has been a while since I seriously considered a SMS sideline, but when I was looking, Trumpia was the one that stood out to me. I also often get emails from them on special deals if I were to sign up for their white label program, so maybe a thing to do would be to get them your email, and then just see what kind of deals they might pitch you.

Lime sounds pretty awesome too, though, I must admit!

I chose Trumpia white label platform because it does not have a monthly fee. I just purchase credits and I use as much as I need. However, AvidMobile has much more education on mobile marketing and they teach you how to sell the service to offline businesses.

I am looking into Trumpia right now. I've signed up for a free 30 day trial so you can see how their platform works. The offer an all-in-one marketing solution. Their reps are pretty helpful and they have offered me monthly pricing. There's a $500 set up and $299/mo. If you want to add their email platform, that's an additional $125-$150/mo. I was given the option also to purchase credits in bulk, starting with 100,000 credits for $2200.

Looking at others as well.

I was told Trumpia is the best one and it seems like every site I find that is selling their mobile marketing solution for small businesses is using Trumpia.

From what I understand they are referring to the viral sharing component. Basically you can setup campaigns where someone gets the initial message, then the offer to share their unique code with X more people and get either a bigger discount, freebie, etc. If it was 5 more people, once 5 more people text in with the code and subscribe, the first person gets whatever they were offered. At that point the 5 people who were referred each get a message with a unique code offering them their own reward if they get 5 more people to text in with their code, wash, rinse repeat.

For the record, I own it but I can't vouch for reliability or anything as I haven't really pushed it very hard to be able to tell. It is owned by Dave Iago here on the forums.

Edit, it is twilio based, using long codes.

I'm thinking about offering a SMS service to my clients. Which platform would be better?

At that point the 5 people who were referred each get a message with a unique code offering them their own reward if they get 5 more people to text in with their code, wash, rinse repeat.

For the record, I own it but I can't vouch for reliability or anything as I haven't really pushed it very hard to be able to tell. It is owned by Dave Iago here on the forums.

Edit, it is twilio based, using long codes.
Just received an email from an Avid Mobile Rep.

he stated Avid's Loyalty Program can do what DanielM nicely described.

I wonder what to do????

Someone dredged up my old thread. Very timely since I'm on the verge of FINALLY making a decision.

Does the loyalty program cost more? What's the total upfront and monthly going to be?

Is anyone finding a threshold on message rates? At what point (price per message) do clients balk at the opportunity that sms marketing offers?

Thank you for starting this thread Instructor. I have tried a couple of companies as well and all seem to fall a little short somewhere (customer service support and user friendliness) ....Really wish I would have came here first! So the toss-up seems to between Trumpia, Avid and Lime Cellular....has anyone tried AnchorMobile.net yet? They seem to have the most user friendly mobile-website builder just a hefty start-up fee leaves me still debating which one will be best, with the focus being a good white labeled back office that integrates well on my personal website and not a pre-made template and good customer service. Anymore suggestions or feedback on AnchorMobile would be so appreciated!

Very objective question, probably best thing to do is sign up for a free trial and work the sales / support team at each respective white label provider and see who you feel the most comfortable and confident with. Currently Trumpia differentiates ourselves in the marketplace by being an all-in-one provider with a focus on not only SMS mobile marketing, but also email marketing and social media.

All the best,

Trumpia also differentiates themselves by sitting on this forum and constantly tooting their own horn. All the other SMS providers don't need to do it because others are talking about and recommending them.

But not Trumpia... they need to sit here and constantly do it, and have been for the last year. :rolleyes:

It gets a bit boring after a while Trumpia.

Obviously the more clients you place on to a short code, the quicker your availabity of keywords diminishes, resulting in you having to license new codes and absorb more cost. Also depending on the size of the company, they are continually paying to advance the capabilities there platform has as to keep up with the ever changing technology advancements, and expand support so they can continue to satisfy your needs. For example a company like ours has both marketing and technology support both, which means our company has to pay an abundance of support agents to be there for our partners, helping to ensure their success.
It is a hard decision to make and a life changing one to say the least, hopefully this helped you out a little bit.
I'd just like to give a quick testimonial to James and Avid Mobile. Many comments from competing companies to Avid use the same canned response, "ABC Company doesn't compete with you". Yes Avid sells their own product to end users but guess what, the also share challenges and responses to the challenges. They use their own ad builder and site builder. They know the difficulties and benefits of it from the reseller viewpoint. Esentially they are one of us. They are in the trenches with us. When I signed up for a demo with them it was short...couple days I think. James Hutson was my SM/AM and he traded eamils with me over the weekend and late into the night getting me started. At first I was put off by the short trial period but I realized it was excellent marketing: show your best, give them a taste of it and wrap it up and ask for the sale. Do we want to extend the sales cycle out forever or ask for the sale while the prospect is excited? I too have been able to correxpond via email with Rob Clifton, CEO of AvidMobile and he is very responsive and seems to like taking action. Full Disclosure: Lime has called me up or emailed me a couple times from when I was looking at them before and they have some sexy stuff and I am tempted to consider, but the bottom line is they dont have a marketing background, they have higher prices. They have a sleek sexy interface but I can do exactly the same with Avid. Avid has stepped up to do all the IP stuff and Patent rights to protect us from some legal issue that may or may not arise, I like that they are leading the fight rather than taking the wait and see.

For me, AvidMobile is the total package. They do what it takes to keep me as a customer and treat me as a VALUED customer. I dont have anything negative to say about the other providers but I can tell you AvidMobile is a great partner for me. I have a meeting with a potential client Monday @ Lunch. YEAH!

How are you delivering these messages? Is is true SMS/Carrier Grade Messaging? The lack of having the ability to opt out at will is slightly alarming.

Right, the inability to opt out is just asking for a SPAM lawsuit...

After building a SMS business using white label and managing it, found that I could turn all the work over to a company called "Yep Text" and end up making about same money without all the headaches.

Certainly not for everyone but found a lot less stressful for me.

Hi mjcannon,
Try Twilio. It works for me. I might be wrong but I think you can use it in Ireland.
Hope it helps.
