StockGuru.com Announces Profile Coverage of Smart SMS Corp.
DALLAS, Sept. 5, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- John Pentony, Publisher of StockGuru.com, announced today that the web site has initiated Profile Coverage of Smart SMS Corporation (Pink Sheets:STMC). SmartSMS(tm) is a state of the art mobile marketing agency that specializes in creating and managing mobile marketing applications in over 17 countries worldwide. SmartSMS(tm) maintains a catalog of over 250 mobile applications, ranging from text chat services to multi-media applications, such as the delivery of ringtones, pictures, and screensavers. SmartSMS(tm) differs from the others by being the first to develop unique marketing concepts that incorporate the latest innovations in mobile technology that create blockbuster campaigns. With SMS still accounting for approximately 90% of European operators' non-voice revenues, operators have been aggressively working to step up the value of SMS through premium SMS -- content-based SMS that requires mobile-phone users to pay a premium tariff for special value-added services or content. The hype surrounding premium SMS is at an all-time high. Currently, the bulk of premium rate SMS activity is largely confined to GSM operators in Europe. SMART started this revolution in early 2000, and strives to continue the trend here, in the United States. Mobile operators in many regions of the world are now heavily pushing their SMS services to third-party content providers as a way to offer content to mobile customers. For example, well-known consumer brands such as Sony, Nike and Pepsi and media outlets have now integrated SMS into their marketing strategies.
