Online Advertising Trends In Cell Phone Text Marketing Point To Windfall For Local Businesses – And Smart Passive Income For You
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When it comes to online advertising, maybe it should be called the "Corporate" Wide Web.

Online advertising has been certainly been a boon for the companies that can afford to produce and pay for it. But in the tradition of “big business versus the little guy,” local businesses have pretty much been left behind.

In addition to being priced out of being placing banner or Flash-based ads online (not to mention being priced out of being able to create them), the vast majority of local businesses have also been unable to take advantage of the latest online advertising trend: reaching customers through their cell phones.

You’ve probably seen ads which feature black and white squares, and instructions to scan them into your cell phones to connect with mobile web sites. And you’ve probably seen ads and commercials instructing you to text a five-digit number to a code name to get a special deal or promotion.

When you consider that cell phone users outdistance Web surfers by five to one, or that ninety-seven percent of all text messages get read within an hour, it’s no wonder that mobile text marketing was an online advertising trend that big business embraced with so much enthusiasm. But once again, it’s the local businesses that end up on the short end of the stick.

The average cell phone text marketing campaign cost around $1000 US per month, not including the cost of creating a mobile Web page. And what’s even worse, so few local business owners lack the basic knowhow to even get themselves listed with the search engines, only one in four Web surfers in search of local business information find what they’re looking for.

But all of that is about to change -- and quite dramatically. The online advertising trends have finally tipped in favor of local businesses – and in your favor, too, if you you're willing to learn how to turn them into a smart passive income idea.

There is now a computer application that can allow you to approach local business owners struggling to find customers, and show them how they can become part of the cell phone text marketing phenomenon at a price they can afford. You’ll be able to show them that they, too, can invite customers to scan a cell phone barcode or text a 5-digit combination in order to take advantage of their products or services.

Everybody would win: the local businesses get the paying customer traffic they need, their customers get the products and services they’re looking for, and you can get either a one-time or monthly commission!
