The most important new trend in marketing and communications is also the most misunderstood. Internationally, the use of mobile marketing platforms is a standard and integral part of the marketing mix. It is rare to see an ad, billboard, television commercial or packaging in Europe and Asia that does not include a text messaging code.

Trends show that campaigns are moving from single, large prize awards to longer promotions with smaller, constant prizes. Consistency and persistency are key to drive consumer behavior and encourage text adoption.

As games for mobile phones become more sophisticated, revenues will increase â€" with many more contest-games on the horizon. Popular mobile games are predominantly of the simple, puzzle type. However, with technical advances in phone handsets and wireless networks, more sophisticated offerings are growing in number.
