      Has anyone tried blurtooth marketing?

      same sort of thing, you could put a small video together for a local market go to an area where your customers are and send the video to everyone.

      Example: You have a site that aims at 18 - 30 age group. but a video together then go sit in a busy pub or club and send the vidoe to everyone in the building.

      I havent tried it, just one of the ideas i have yet to come to try.

          Several countries has laws against SMS advertising.
          So you may want to look that up.

            Apart from the legal aspects already mentioned, one of the problems is that many people pay to receive text messages, not just to send them.

            This week I'm launching a new service that has a strong SMS viral element. Many people will learn about it simply by using it. It's not advertising - just viral marketing as its best where a service promotes itself just by being used for what it was intended (the Hotmail model springs to mind).

            It should be fun and a little different - I'm looking forward to it.
