Android - marketing SMS

1. Mobile Marketing

Mobile devices are now the primary means of communication across many industries. This makes mobile marketing critical for businesses that want to reach consumers where they spend time, rather than pushing advertising at them.

2. Advertising

Advertising methods on smartphones include banner ads, native advertising, and push notifications, but text messaging stands apart from the crowd. Text messages deliver a message straight to users' phones without having to download apps, or interrupt their day. And, while some users may block unwanted texts on their phone, others appreciate getting a message from you.

3. Customer Service

Texting allows businesses to communicate directly with customers and respond to inquiries more efficiently. This could save them money down the road. Additionally, sending a link to a page in a web browser is much slower than a direct text message. As more consumers turn to smartphones, text messaging is likely to continue its rise.

The Android Marketplace was designed to allow users to download apps from Google Play. To date nearly 50,000 Android applications have been downloaded through the store. Applications can be purchased, installed, and used without having to access the Internet. There are currently more than 1.8 million applications in the marketplace. When searching for applications, you'll be presented with categories including games, books, news, productivity, entertainment, education, health, fitness, sports, tools, utilities, and others. If you click on any category, you'll be shown a list of applications categorized by popularity, price, rating, or a combination of those factors.
