    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.

    Newbie question but thinking of reaching the offline mobile marketing niche as a sideline hobby.

    It seems lime cellular is the winner but Does limecellular only cater to US market or can it work in Canada as well?

    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.

      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.

      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!

      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!
