    I have read that their are 3 times more people using cell phones than using their personal computers. Is mobile marketing the hot, new way to market affiliate products? There is a new method of affiliate marketing for mobile phones using banner ads with CPA offers and pay per call offers. Has anyone try this mobile marketing method?

    This is something that has to be done with certain types of products offers.

    It is probably good for opt in leads, but purchases don't appear to be great at the moment.

    Don't know much about this but it's definitely trending up.

    Even the new Google keyword tool has a section for mobile search results.

    To your success,

    Mobile advertising will be a great tool for some products and niches..
    I would not suggest trying to sell someone on your network marketing opportunity.
    If you are selling products mobile advertising would probably work out well.

    I'm afraid this isn't really popular yet in the U.S. because the technology is still pretty new here but overseas where people are more accepting of this technology sales are increasing.

    We are just now getting the ability to pay for things with our phones while they've had that capability for years in parts of Asia and Europe. I'm sure as soon as the technology is available nationwide in the U.S. and people become more comfortable with it then it'll become a new trend.

    I check three mobile affiliate networks and on each network you can advertise in Europe. On these networks they are paying higher in Europe countries. That is the great thing about mobile marketing you can run campaigns in any country.

    I think you it will be a niche segment of the new age of marketing, but I do not see how it can currently compete head to head with the advantages of interfacing on a PC or Lap Top.

    If you use an android based phone, you will see how it can be effective for reaching the more tech oriented market. But i have noticed that the ads are hard to read. maybe in a few years it will surpass pc/laptop targeted ads. I think the tend of teenagers using a phone more than a pc will relate to marketing when those teenagers go into the biz world.

    I feel mobil marketing is an intrusion. I hate when I get a text message on my cell phone that I didn't opt in for or request. I will never purchase anything from someone that sends it over my phone. So for me, I would never go that route to spend money advertising that way. Sorry guys, just my 2 cents

    It's only a matter of time before Mobile Marketing becomes as mainstream as "traditional" online marketing. In many ways the technological infrastructure in the US can be considered to be in its infancy.

    When that has matured a bit and the consumer becomes more comfortable with the convenience and security of its commercial applications, the marketing potential will be explosive.

    I believe this is the right time to position yourself in front of the mobile marketing wave, and get ready for the inevitable tsunami that is sure to follow.

    Target mobile users with mobile APPS, that's what they're buying.
    Giving away mobile apps for shopping is another profitable niche.
    All my kids use their Droids more than their PCs.
    Word of mouth spreads fast on cell phones!
    Mobile + Apps + Viral = BIG Money

    Has anyone used a new mobile application known as the "SlingItApp?" I'm trying to find something (not too expensive) that would allow me to get started with mobile marketing.
