Turkcell, Vodafone and Avea our three partners in the latest Turkey campaign.

The third annual installement of our exceptionally successful ‘Sans Cept’ campaign in Turkey has just launched.

Running over six months, each 60-day interval will see participants share in a prize draw for iPhones, LCD TVs, BMW X-series cars, Vespa scooters and even an apartment to park it all in. Not winning the loot will always disappoint, but a bunch of Akazoo points for every player will make it up, a bit.

Boosting the campaign is not only the usual all-media advertising effort, but also a linked Facebook page that rewards a ‘like’ with a real chance to join the prize draws for free. Third is, remarkably, Turkey’s rank in the global league table of Facebook user numbers, so this could be big - stay tuned.

When launching a mobile marketing campaign, a company can go in a number of directions with its efforts.

When launching a mobile marketing campaign, a company can go in a number of directions with its efforts. Some firms may opt for a backseat approach, while others may choose to take a more hands-on initiative.

Often, however, the latter may appear to consumers as aggressive, particularly if interactive SMS messages aren't well-timed and interrupting daily routines. Therefore, a business must ensure its efforts are interactive and engaging, Diane Charton, managing director at Acceleration Media told Biz Community.

"People carry their mobile phones with them wherever they go and leave it on their bedside tables when they go to sleep at night," Charton told the source. "Marketers need to be careful that they don't alienate customers and prospects by sending them SMS messages at inconvenient times or by sending so many messages that they become annoying."

Many firms are still putting most of their efforts behind an interactive SMS strategy. While this is an effective channel for reaching consumers, marketers should also focus their attention on mobile applications. In June, consumers spent an average of 81 minutes per day interacting with apps, a Flurry report revealed.
