Since the first edition of my book (The Mobile Marketing Handbook) came out in early 2009, people have been asking me how to start a business in mobile marketing. Last week I discovered a new idea to add to my answer about how to do it.
Most of the thousands of people I have helped to start and build their mobile marketing businesses have done it via the local business service model – by helping businesses use mobile marketing to bring more customers in the door. I love this business model and, as my core business, continue to train and teach this aspect of building a business.
It is not for everyone though. Some people are people attracted to mobile and the concept of doing something with it, but they don’t really want to start a service-based business.
Until now, I haven’t really had anything to suggest to those folks.
Now I do.
It is a mobile-focused business that can be started for less than $10 and is not about selling mobile services to businesses.
If that sounds intriguing to you, then please check out this website. I highly encourage you to watch the quick videos on the home page and be sure to see the App Questions section of the FAQ.
If you already have a local business mobile marketing company, this is something you can do completely separately in order to have something mobile you can offer to consumers. Plus, for certain types of businesses who might be your clients, this could make an excellent source of residual income for them and you.
Not that I am comparing myself to Moses, but I am taking on the responsibility of writing out the 10 Commandments of Mobile Marketing.
And while they are not being presented to you on a stone tablet, it would be wise to consider these as set in stone if you want to succeed in mobile marketing.
What is your biggest question about starting or growing your mobile marketing business?
I get dozens of emails and calls every week from people who are just getting started in a text messaging business or want to start doing mobile websites or mobile apps or QR Codes and are stalled at some point. They just need to get a certain piece of the puzzle figured out and then they can get moving forward again.
