Proximity Blue marketing is launching Bluetooth marketing zones in New York/NewJersey-area malls where Bluetooth-wearing customers are instructed to download messages and ***ers from businesses. A small to mid-sized business can now have their ad sent out at these high traffic locations and drive traffic to their own location, says Alex Teplish of Proximity Blue. Floor decals, banners and signage let consumers know about the downloads, and the messages are limited to one every half hour. Once people leave the zone, they no longer receive the prompt. The plan is to expand to malls throughout the country.

Welcome, Proximity blue. This is a very interesting service, and I hope you will stick around awhile to continue the conversation.

Hello,
I guess this idea is really good way for email and sms marketing
but there is just a small drawback that using bluetooth at such a massive scale can make the mobile more vulnerable to virus attack.

using bluetooth at such a massive scale can make the mobile more vulnerable to virus attack.

How?

I don't think there's any quantifiable value in that statement at all.

As for BlueTooth marketing, I can highly recommend the folks over at Merlin Wireless, I've got one of their boxes on my kitchen windowsill with a 10db gain antenna (not shown below) facing the street below.

I'm on Market Street, take a guess at how busy it gets...... Loads of foot traffic goes by so it's great to get a message into folks hands for free.

Sena seem to be the leader in BlueTooth hardware.

So, who can answer this: Who was BlueTooth and what did he do that ended up giving his name to a digital protocol?

Actually it is quite a nice story which deserves to be more widely known - shows the power of beer and the trademark minefield - see

Hello,
Proximity marketing is a relatively new medium used to promote establishments via advertising and marketing businesses by sending content to consumers' mobile phones. The technology is thru Bluetooth and almost all phones have it these days.


Thanks

To be honest... I hate that sort of marketing, but if you have to make money like that. I wish you the best
