Start by building a proper database. You should not however, add phone numbers to the database without authorization of the owner. You want to be sure the people receiving your messages did actually sign up for them. Gaining permission can easily be done by either a web form that they can fill out, or by agreeing to it via a simple code based text system.
Do not randomly message your clients. Respect your customers’ attention by always giving them useful content when you send out messages. There have been mobile marketing campaigns that failed because customers began getting random texts from a business. Customers can get all the funny, cute messages they want from their friends; what they expect from marketers is useful information.
Mobile content should be easy to read and to the point for the success of your campaign. Make your message known in a manner that will be taken in by your customer quickly.

Customer bases rarely change but it is important to remember that mobile customers are much more fickle due to outside influences. Always stay current with the newest technology out there or your business may suffer. Customers are always looking for the next best thing.
Set the times that your MMS text messages are sent to your customers for normal business hours. Customers will be unlikely to buy your product, even if they like it, if you have bothered them at odd hours of the day.
