There has been a lot of buzz in recent years about mobile transactions and affiliate marketing, but I haven’t really seen much of it in practice.
But today there was an interesting article in Adotas, “Shop Online On Your Sprint Phone“:
Today, Sprint Nextel Corp has launched a mobile portal designed to allow shoppers to buy 7 million products from 30 online retailers. Some of these retailers include Wal-Mart, shoes.com and bluefly.com.
Exciting stuff, and certainly a big opportunity for affiliates that can move quick and establish a mobile presence with a unique value proposition.
But the question I have – is this all trackable by the affiliate networks?
I sure hope so, but I’m not clued into the nuances of mobile browsers and whether they act the same as regular Web browsers.
