Micro and commercial mobile news operations

Hi everyone, It's great to join this community! I am looking forward to getting to know you more.I am a (new) new media consultant and I believe Frontline SMS will be ideal during the pilot stage of a media operation that wants to explore mobile news. The company I started did just that and progressed from the pilot stage to deals with telcos in 2007. I can say it is definitely an exciting path (reaching 180,000 subscribers took Jasmine Newswires in Sri Lanka from new media entity to player on…See More

Profile Information

Why are you interested in FrontlineSMS? How did you hear about it? (To help us filter out spammers, we need as MUCH detail as possible, else we may not be able to approve your request. If you'd rather not share this information openly please email before joining)
I work as a consultant for mobile new media and conflict sensitive reporting. The company I started in 2006, Jasmine Newswires, first used delivery systems similar to Frontline SMS during our pilot phase to reach a few hundred news subscribers. And then we tied up with telcos to reach the mass public. We reached 180,000 news subscribers during our peak in 2009-2010, with databases and subscriptions managed by the telcos. I am interested in whether Frontline SMS is geared to work with subscriptions (set periods when a number is active and then automatically deactivated, maybe renewal reminders sent, batch editing of groups to make them active or inactive) so that small new media companies can commercialize their services during their pilot phase to make themselves self sustaining, until they tie up with telcos.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
