Competing with a number of Asian-based messaging services (like LINE, KakaoTalk, and WeChat), WhatsApp handles ten billion messages per day. According to the Financial Times, WhatsApp "has done to SMS on mobile phones what Skype did to international calling on landlines. The service is free for the first year then costs $0.99/Yr. Everyone knows that WhatsApp is a great tool for messaging friends however what you did not know is that WhatsApp can be used as campaign tool to generate marketing leads. The App is free and it can serve as a strong marketing channel with the potential of getting clients for your business more than anything else. Why Choose WhatsApp for your marketing Campaign? The App is almost free! You can send large number of messages with no limits. It's available for all smartphone platforms including iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Nokia, Blackberry, and Symbian. Everyone is using it because you don't have to go to a website to fill in details or confirm your identity to use it. It just needs your mobile number and you are done! WhatsApp - The Next Generation Marketing Tool? Using WhatsApp to promote businesses also has many advantages, because it has better features than traditional SMS/MMS services offer. WhatsApp supports many different message types, from simple text to pictures to audio files. Usually a MMS message would cost a fair bit of money to send, so the fact that these can be sent to as many customers and prospects as you like for free is great. You can also send GPS location of your stores! Product videos, Product images and audio messages (a short personal message from your CEO could be sent to multiple clients and prospects at one go!) this wonderful App supports just everything. You can start your own WhatsApp group and can invite your clients and prospects to join, or you could create an internal marketing group which will help you stay connected with your campaign peers 24/7. So WhatsApp as a campaign tool can perform everything a traditional e-mail or SMS campaign could do. To top it all Whatsapp is close to our hearts being a smartphone app, many people can't take their hands off their phone because of this App. Hence any message communicated through this medium has the most immediate and maximum outreach.

Many of you may not know this (a quick Google might help), but SMS actually stands for Short Message Service.

SMS is still a very popular and in my opinion, reliable way of communicating with someone. However, since smartphones are so popular these days and data on phones is going through the roof, services like WhatsApp and Ping have popped up. These services replace SMS, basically. Judging by the App Store description, that's what they aim to do as well. What WhatsApp and others like it do, is they allow you to send messages to someone over the internet, using your data connection. Of course, the recipient of your message has to have the application installed on their phone, as well. So, most of us, at least in my country, have unlimited data plans. Considering WhatsApp uses your phone's data connection to send messages, you can send unlimited messages! So, knowing this, will you ever send an SMS again? Most likely not. A lot of people have smartphones these days, so if you're in luck, and your friends have smartphones with WhatsApp or something similar installed, you'll be able to send messages - basically for free. I think you'll like that idea, won't you? Yeah, me to - don't get me wrong. But.... your carrier might not be as impressed. Carriers make a ' poo-ton ' of money from SMS. However, they get NOTHING when you sent a message to your friend using something like WhatsApp. You pay, in most cases anyway, a fixed amount of money for your data plan per month. So, basically..... You can send a million messages for the price of whatever you pay for your data plan. I think you get the picture... carriers are actually screwed out of some profit here. Should you care? Not really. It's there problem, right? It is. Can carriers do anything? Yes, and in countries like the United States and others, they have. What they do is, they limit the amount of data you can use per month. So, instead of unlimited, you may now use 2 GB of data and not a byte (or bit?) more. Of course, they don't limit data plans just because of this. There are many other reasons. However, the data cap is rather convenient for carriers to fight things like WhatsApp. Don't worry however, if the only thing you do is message your mom then you shouldn't worry. Messages are short, and text based, so they don't use a lot of data when being sent. Data caps are especially annoying when you're a big user of video services (YouTube, Netflix). Besides, I still use SMS if I really want someone to get something, because WhatsApp can be unreliable at times. I love WhatsApp, though. It's a terrific solution to communicate with friends and family. It saves a LOT of money in some cases. For example, if your friend lives abroad. Sending SMS to a foreign country can get pretty expensive. But, if your friend’s phone is connected to the internet, he will receive your message and it won't cost you a thing. There is a lot to be said for apps like WhatsApp, but game over for SMS? Not necessarily and not yet anyway.

FACETIME AND WHATSAPP - HOW TO COMMUNICATE FOR FREE WITH YOUR IPHONE The Apple iPhone 4S and up allows you to send and receive messages and carry out phone calls using a number of different formats. This is achieved via both the standard formats as well as those provided by apps downloaded from the AppStore. In this article I will look at some of the communication apps available, so you can take advantage of the benefits they bring. FaceTime The FaceTime app makes its first appearance on the iPhone 4S, working alongside the handset's built in front facing camera. You can only use the app if the person you are speaking to has a device with FaceTime (iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2 etc) and a front facing camera. If they have, then you can carry out video calls over a Wi-Fi network, so you can not only hear them but also see them in real time. This app is especially useful if you are contacting someone oversees, as you can avoid the notoriously high call charges associated with calling foreign number on a telephone. Because it is free, this app comes highly recommended. WhatsApp This is an app which allows you to send and receive SMS and MMS messages for free. Most iPhone 4S tariffs have an allowance of free messages included, but if you go over this allowance, an app like WhatsApp can be very useful. Because the app uses a 3G or Wi-Fi connection, messages incur no charges (although data charges may apply when using 3G in certain situations. To be sure, use Wi-Fi whenever possible). This app costs $0.69 from the AppStore and I think this is very good value as you can use it to send an unlimited number of text messages and media messages. You can only send messages using this app if your intended recipient also has WhatsApp installed on their phone. WhatsApp is also available for other operating systems like Android, so can also be used on phones like the Samsung Galaxy S2, for example. As you can see, there are more options for communication on the iPhone 4S than the standard phone and message features. If you use apps like those outlined above wisely, you can significantly reduce your monthly phone bill. These kinds of apps are great for those who have lower allowances on their tariff or who use a Pay As You Go plan. There are many more such apps on the AppStore which allow you to communicate for free using an iPhone 4S; be sure to check out my other articles for details on some of these Check out the best iPhone 4S deals and Samsung Galaxy S2 contracts at PhonesLimited.co.uk.

4. THE TOP 5 MOBILE APPS YOUR MOBILE OPERATOR DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT Ever got a shockingly expensive bill? Frustrated by the ever increasing telephone bill? It happens to all of us. Take this scenario, suitcases packed, holiday here I come.

Or remember this situation... your kids have gone crazy texting (SMS) and phoning with their friends on your mobile? In this section we will give you information to get you started with the following top 5 mobile apps: 1. WhatsApp - Free SMS 2. Yelo - Cheap Calls 3. Onavo - Reduce Mobile Data 4.

WeFi - Free Hotspots Top 5 Smartphone Apps If you have a smartphone you might be surprised that there are apps on the market that will allow you to make cheap calls, eliminate texting (SMS) cost, and allow you to have free mobile data access. The smartphone apps that will help you save money are sometimes the best-kept secrets around, so to help you make the best choice we provide out top 5 apps: 1. WhatsApp - Free SMS The first App that will save you money is called WhatsApp. WhatsApp allows you to never pay for your texting (SMS) anymore. This is a cross platform (iOS/Android/) allowing you to send instant messages to all of your contacts that also have WhatsApp. WhatsApp is used by more than 200 million users globally, WhatsApp is a paid app ($0.99 or less). Go to the Whatsapp website to download the app. 2. Yelo - Cheap Calls Roaming, international calls, long distance, phone cards? Your answer to reduce calling cost is Yeloworld.

data compression. As most operators are moving to a maximum data usage (mb) on the mobile data plan, whereby you have to pay for the extra usage, Onavo ensures you get the most out of your dataplan. Go to the Onavo website to download the app. 4. Fon - Free Mobile Data Fon is a must-have app that will allow you to stop paying for mobile data. Fon gives you free access to 7 million WiFi hotspots across the world. All you need to do is locate a Fon hotspot and you will have free internet. All it requires for you is to become a Fon member by buying a Fon router (Fonera). Fon has been signing deals with BT, MTS, Oi, SFT and other operators, so expect them to get coverage in all major countries in the next years. To download the app: www.fon.com. 5. WeFi - Free Hotspots The fifth and final app is called WeFi. This is an app that will again help you to get free data on your smartphone. This app has about 100 million Wi-Fi hotspots in their database. Go to the WeFi website to download the app. The above mobile apps will help you to reduce on your mobile cost, while getting the maximum out of it. A last tip is to always check on how to manually switch off mobile data or calling on your phone when you start your travel or how to switch back to your own operator when returning from travel. Smartphones nowadays are very smart, but somehow not smart enough to ask you whether you would like to switch off mobile data or calling when you are in roaming (not on a network of your operator). Or is this the killing feature for operators to enjoy enormous margins? Ever got a shock bill? Frustrated by the ever increasing telephone bill? It happens to all of us. If you have a smartphone you might be surprised that there are apps on the market that will allow you to make cheap calls, eliminate texting (SMS) cost, and allow you to have free mobile data access. All smartphone apps that will help you save money are sometimes the best-kept secrets around. Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Charles_River 5. BBM VS. WHATSAPP, WHICH ONE IS BETTER It has been long that everyone was eagerly awaited for the BBM. Now it is finally available for Android and iOS or iPhone users. Even though there are numerous messaging services available but it seems that BBM has a strong competition against WhatsApp. Then let us co 6 US Residents Only - Use Coupon Code MICR2014 to get an amazing $4 off our Pack of 10 Top Quality Microfiber Cloths each in its own clear plastic envelope and ready to use Microfiber Cloths 10 Pack for Lens and Screen Cleaning
BBM for privacy If you are aiming at something that is more private then BBM is the right choice for you. When you opt for this service, you will be using a unique PIN through which you can get in touch with your contacts. This means that unless a friend has accepted your request you will not be able to contact through BBM. If you see it different then it seems a hassle as when you use WhatsApp you are easily in touch with all on your phonebook. It is as simple as sending a message to another user. Contact grid BBM seems to have a better contact grid as compared to WhatsApp. Here you have a few chosen people to communicate with. However, with WhatsApp you will have all on your contact grid. The common factor with both the chat messengers seems to be adding your close friends and family. You can create a list on your BBM or create Favorites in your WhatsApp. Message Delivery There is a distinct way these two apps behave when it comes to message delivery notification or alerts regarding it. WhatsApp alerts you when a user is online and their last seen time. With BBM, you are not furnished such information but you will still know when another is available or busy according to their current status. For those who like online and last seen they can opt for WhatsApp, as the information is always accurate. BBM differs in its approach towards message delivery; you will get an R for read receipt and D for delivery status. WhatsApp gives you single tick for message sent and double for delivery. For WhatsApp users they will only know if their message was read according to last login time or last seen time of another user. BBM offers you with an option of PING just like poke on Facebook this feature helps you nudge another user. Emoticons The emoticon preference differs in both the messaging services but it boils down to your own personal choice. WhatsApp gives you smiley, animals, images and other emoticons to express yourself. While BBM has limited number of selective emoticons. 7 US Residents Only - Use Coupon Code MICR2014 to get an amazing $4 off our Pack of 10 Top Quality Microfiber Cloths each in its own clear plastic envelope and ready to use Microfiber Cloths 10 Pack for Lens and Screen Cleaning
This is probably more down to personal emoticon preference than anything else, but we have to say we prefer the options you get on WhatsApp compared to BBM. Chat Space The chat space provided by WhatsApp is much more in comparison to what is provided by BBM. The conversation bubbles in the chat are bigger. If you are using a BlackBerry handset then you can change the text size or else you will need to live up with it. The privilege of adding more conversation messages is given to BlackBerry users. Common factors After comparing the two together, there are a few features that are common in both the message services. Creating and updating chat status that serves as an alert message to other users about your current mood. You can create groups in both the chat services but there are more attachment options available with WhatsApp. You will be able to send images, video files, audio notes, and media files. However, with BBM you only have the option of audio, video and image files. Conclusion – BBM vs WhatsApp If you are using a BlackBerry handset then you have full functionality enabled in BBM. Things like video, voice and screen share are yet to be introduced in BBM chat for non-BlackBerry users. At present, this app is compatible with all platforms just as WhatsApp. BBM helps you communicate with iPhone and Android users. However, it seems that WhatsApp chat is also available to all the users including iPhone, Android and BlackBerry users. Both the apps are appropriate and work on cross-platform. It seems that in the end it all depends upon personal choice of a user which app they would like to choose.
