3 UK kicks off mobile viral marketing effort

August 8, 2005 at 1:41 by Martina Comments

In the UK 3G operator 3 has partnered with viral content provider Kontraband to start serving viral ads to mobile phones. New Media Age (sub. req.) reports the funny content will be available using video shortcodes (so it won’t be 100% viral), but at least it’s a first in the viral direction.
Anyway I will be curious to know the pricing model. On the Internet, what is viral, it’s free. But when it comes to mobile phones the word “free” almost has no meaning, carriers dominate the scene and want to make money anytime, anywhere, which isn’t something good neither for marketers nor end-users.
