  • Well Denise your question is a bit, mmm, "broad" but I'll try to give you my idea on the subject, hoping this will make things a bit clearer for you.

    As somebody pointed out before, "mobile marketing" basically refers to all those activities that will help a business get more exposure/traffic/visitors/money and which involves the usage of a mobile device, be it a featurephone, a smartphone or a tablet.

    This being said, I see four main activities in mobile marketing:
    1. SMS marketing
    2. QR Code marketing
    3. Mobile website optimization
    4. Mobile SEO/SEM/Adv

    Let's see each one of them individually:

    SMS marketing
    Similar to email marketing, basically what you do is help a business collect mobile phone numbers of people that might be interested in what they are offering and then you help them create an appropriate message ("Special offer, 20% off if you show up today at our store in XYZ") and deliver it to those people.

    QR Code marketing
    The QR Code is that little square image that looks like a maze and that can be scanned by smartphones (with the appropriate app, so far) and can then start a phone call, start the sending of a message or open a website (or app) URL. What you do here is think about the right strategy, create the appropriate QR codes and find the best places to distribute them (local newspapers? leaflets? billboards? business card?)

    Mobile website optimization
    Given my background and current job I think this is the most important element of the "mobile marketing mix". Having a mobile optimized website (which doesn't only mean having a shrunken version of your desktop website!) is essential for any mobile marketing initiative, and I think is vital for any small, medium, big and huge business. So basically what you do here is help your customer build a mobile optimized website, telling them the best structure, the most effective solutions and them finding the right technology to actually implement it and maintain it.

    Mobile SEO/SEM/Adv
    Once you have built your mobile website, you need to optimize it for search engines (after all, it is a "regular" website, only optimized for mobile devices) and/or use advertisement such as AdWords or display ads to bring users and visitors. This activity, while being obviously specifically targeted to mobile users, is nonetheless similar to "regular" SEO and advertisement.

    So, in the end, from my point of view mobile marketing is a mix of all this - obviously you can specialize in any of the above activities but being able to offer the right mix is crucial to building a successfuly mobile marketing business.

    What do you guys think?

    Mobile marketing is marketing on or with a mobile device, such as a cell phone. Mobile marketing can also be defined as “the use of the mobile medium as a means of marketing communication”,the “distribution of any kind of promotional or advertising messages to customer through wireless networks”. More specific definition is the following: “using interactive wireless media to provide customers with time and location sensitive, personalized information that promotes goods, services and ideas, thereby generating value for all stakeholders".
    Mobile marketing is commonly known as wireless marketing, although viewing advertising on a computer connected to a home local area network is not considered to be mobile marketing.
