Abstract


The only constant thing in the world of business is CHANGE, and digital media is one of these changes that has taken over the other conventional forms of connecting people. A well-planned and tactM way of digital media advertising is certainly more effective when it comes to its survival and growth. With the business going global m every aspect, advertising is not Hmited to just one country. It is , therefore, highly recommended to adopt a better plan of advertising that proves to be more economical, hence, yield better results. A closer look around us makes mobile phones one of the most widely used digital communicators which enables us to advertise for the product using text through its shortmessaging service better known as SMS. SMS has been one of the most effective ways of digital advertising for the past ten years. With jobs to carloans, housing to travelling, almost every area of our lives is influenced by the digital media and SMS has been successful in delivering the idea of its sender But with the increased usage of internet, we notice that over a period of time. SMS has lost its existence in the market due to the cons that come along its pros. For instance, one might get a car's promotional offers when he is absolutely not in need of a car, one might be busy in a important meeting when the mobile signals the sudden a arrival of a SMS, which turns upto be a garments advertisement, and so on.
