Mogreet Releases Best Practices Guide for Successfully Navigating Text Marketing Rules and Regulations

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

Mogreet, the world's leading mobile messaging (SMS/MMS) marketing platform, today announced that it has published the 2013 Guide to Text Messaging Regulations & Best Practices. The document contains a set of guidelines to assist mobile marketers as they navigate the vast and intricate regulations currently governing the industry to keep the channel free from spam.

Included in Mogreet's guidelines for running a successful and legally compliant text marketing program are:

  • Building a mailing list with legally acquired, permission-based subscribers
  • Clearly communicating the content and frequency of texts to potential subscribers
  • Documenting and saving opt-ins and messaging permissions
  • Avoiding text distribution too early in the morning, too late in the evening, or during typical rush hour times

"Mobile marketing is highly regulated, with new rules coming out every month," said James Citron, CEO and co-founder of Mogreet. "To help reduce confusion, Mogreet put together this set of best practices featuring the common sense dos and don'ts to ensure mobile marketers are keeping in line with all regulations while protecting their reputation with their customers."

Accessible by 98 percent of U.S. cell phone owners and with a 95 percent open rate, text messages have become a key marketing tool for retailers, media outlets, entertainment properties and others. Several separate entities including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC (News - Alert)), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and CTIA-The Wireless Association regularly audit the industry to ensure that people's rights are protected.

"2013 is poised to be a huge year for text marketing," added Citron. "We are seeing new campaigns launching nearly every day, and we have even started seeing references to text marketing in television and movies. In order for this to continue to be a successful marketing tool, it is important that campaigns are always executed in compliance with the industry regulations."

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
