Mark Beccue sizes up the market for mobile marketing in terms of the actual number of consumers you can reach with various mobile data applications. 

Based on Beccue's analysis, the addressable market of consumers for mobile marketing applications looks something like this: 

  • Text Messaging: 84.8 million subscribers

  • Mobile Internet (sans email): 34.6 million subscribers

  • MMS (primarily person to person picture messaging): 26.9 million subscribers

Bottom line: Marketers need to educate themselves about text applications and vendors out there that can help them tap into the 84.8 million and growing Americans predisposed to text messaging.
