Secret Communication ( marketing ) Weapon

Posted by Carl E. Reid Friday, April 2, 2010

You probably know this already, but I thought I would share it anyway :-)

If you don't have an email address for a person or they don't check email that often, you can still send email to their cell phone (comes to each person as a text message on their phone).  Many people in the "mature crowd" have a cell phone, but don't use email at all.  Now you can reach out to them more often via email.

Keep in mind people have a limited amount of characters they can receive in each text message. So keep email messages short to about 200 characters. That's enough to send a brief reminder about upcoming events, meetings or emergency alerts to multiple cell phones as part of email sends.

As long as you know the person's cell phone provider, you can use the formats below, employing your regular email system.

T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net

Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com

Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com

Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com

Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com


Alltel: phonenumber@message.alltel.com
 

AT&T: phonenumber@mms.att.net
 

SunCom: phonenumber@tms.suncom.com
 

VoiceStream: phonenumber@voicestream.net
 

Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com (text only)
             
phonenumber@vzwpix.com (pictures and videos)
