The New I phone 5 Has Already Broken All Records
If ever there was proof needed of how powerful mobile phones have become, along comes the new Apple I phone, the Apple iPhone 5. It was released on the Friday and sold out in most outlets by the Sunday and it is predicted that the sales of these phones, along with the accessories such as new cases etc, will actually help to boost the current weak American economy.
Let’s be honest most of us now own a mobile phone that has mobile web. Indeed , a survey carried out by Canalys confirmed that sales of smart phones actually outsold sales of personal computers for the first time ever thus showing our ever increasing need for having constant access to the Internet.
Mobile phones are even fast replacing many traditional items such as alarm clocks and games consuls. I know that I am becoming addicted to playing games on my I phone, especially ant smasher. It has helped to fill in, what would otherwise have been a boring few hours, waiting for various appointments such as the doctors or the dentists.
So what does this mean for ordinary people like us? Can these simple devices actually make money for us too?
You’ll be pleased to hear that the answer is YES…But how?
Well if you’re a local business owner you could make more money by promoting your goods or services to the masses who are carrying their mobiles with them every minute of the day. What a great marketing opportunity especially as your target audience actually open their texts there and then, unlike their e mails that just sit there waiting to be read.
As a local business owner you don’t merely have to promote your goods and services, you could also send out appointment reminders to avoid costly “no shows”. You could even sell last minute offers and sneak in some up sells at the same time…The possibilities are endless.
But what if you don’t own a business can you still make money from the mobile web phenomenon?
Again the answer is YES. What’s more, with mobile web usage increasing at such an alarming rate, mobile can offer you the opportunity of leaving your job and earning an income from home merely by promoting the power of mobile marketing to local business owners.
Sound a bit too tecchie?
Ok maybe you don’t know anything about mobile marketing but that doesn’t matter. You don’t need technical skills and almost anyone can make an incredible living with mobile.
Mobile marketing can be a perfect opportunity for anyone wanting to earn money from home: Stay at home mums, early retired, redundant, unemployed or anyone just wanting to escape the office once and for all.
So how do you get started?
Step 1. Carry Our Market Research
Visit a high street near you and find out how many businesses are actually marketing to their customers using mobile marketing. Chances are they will be few and far between as statistics show that currently only 1 in 10 retail services are using mobile marketing within their marketing plan.
This is alarming given that they could increase their sales and actually lower their marketing costs in the process. What savvy business owner would not pay for this service?
Step 2: Invest In Mobile Marketing Training
Most training packages for mobile marketing are relatively inexpensive (under £100) and many will also include a full money back guarantee. Don’t be out off by the “training” as most packages will consist of several DVD’s that will show you step by step how to get started.
Step 3: Market Your Services
There has never been a cheaper time to advertise your services than now. With the ever increasing popularity of the social media sites such as twitter, facebook and linked in, you can even promote your services whilst socialising and better still it’s FREE.
Another way to market your services for FREE is to call in personally to local business and show them a portfolio of your services and what you can offer them.
If you have a small marketing budget available you could have some business cards printed and distribute them locally or you could send letters to local business owners detailing what you have to offer them
There really has never been a better time to make money from the mobile phone revolution…It really is the new gold rush and those who get in on it now will reap the enormous benefits.
So whether you’re a local business owner wanting to create more sales or an individual wanting to make an incredible income working from home…mobile marketing has something to offer everyone wanting to make more money.
So strike while the iron is hot for as Simon Fuller so aptly said:
“You’ve got to get in there while it’s hot and get out before it’s cold”.
