Starting own SMS business! Need advice

by ClaDax
5 replies
Hello,

I'm not from the U.S.. Here, where I am from they charge approx. 150 USD per keyword with a 200 USD set up fee. Plus the sms sender pays 0.10 USD.

Being a reseller I can't earn much, so I am willing to invest and start my own SMS business.

What I would like to know from the experts here is what it takes to do the following:

1 People read "Join our VIP club now and get an instant coupon code."

Through my business:

2. People use their phone to join my program.
3. Create my offer online.
4. Press send.
5. People receive my offer.

Are there maybe some WP templates, plugins, PDFs to read about how to set this kind of business up.

PS: Maybe some of us can invest together and have it programmed by outsourcers? Then we use it as a template between us, and modify it as a WP theme... just a thought

(Main question again: What I would like to know from the experts here is what it takes to make steps 1 to 5 reality.)

Thanks for everyone who takes a bit of time to answer.

    Trying to help, but I don't understand you yet.

    You want to send these messages over the internet, without using the cellphone carrier network, because of the costs you show above. Is that the case?

    Hi,

    I am not from the States too.
    I am evaluating to use GPS Proximity Marketing as an option to SMS marketing.
    It will depend on costs to make me decide to use it or not.
    Make a search on Wikipedia to know more about GPS Proximity Marketing.
