Become a consultant to local businesses
Mobile marketing is great news for every business you know. Mobile marketing can act like a salesperson whispering into the ear of a potential customer at a fraction of the cost. Most local businesses are looking for ways to reduce their marketing costs and to attract consistent business. Therefore why not page through your phone directories, Google maps and newspapers to obtain names of local businesses that you can offer your services to. Just think of all the local businesses that you could help including dentists and doctors to reduce those costly broken appointments, restaurants to text last minute offers to fill empty tables or even advise car sales how to lure people from the forecourt into their showrooms via Bluetooth.
