Mobile Advertising practices such as Bulk SMS service provide ultimate convenience to customers to access the brand information only when they are convenient or free. The message doesn’t disappear from the inbox of the customers until and unless he or she wants to do away with it. However, if the customer finds the message relevant or informative, he or she will keep it back in his or her inbox for future reference.
