If you are reading this, you probably already know that MyxerTones offers a free service that enables anyone to create, share and even sell their own ringtones and wallpapers and deliver them to any phone… What you may not know is that we also have a lot of people getting very creative as to how they can use the Myxer platform and mobile content to market and promote themselves, their companies and their causes… and not only with music ringtones. We are constantly finding out about new and different ways Myxer is being used. We have discovered authors using ringtones to promote book releases, and everyone from State Fairs to Charities, and College Alumni Associations using ringtones and mobile wallpapers to promote their brands and events. Even popular marketing blogs like John Jantsch’s DUCT TAPE MARKETING have championed the concept of “ringtone branding” and using the power and proliferation of mobile phones to get your brand and marketing message in the hands (and pockets) of the mobile masses. Here are a few examples of clever and non-traditional ringtones we have found within the MyxerTones catalog:
- Popular Podcaster and Sci-Fi/Horror Author Scott Sigler used a ringtone to promote the publication of his book ANCESTOR.
- Ringtones are being used to promote the San Diego County Fair.
- The State of Illinois Department of Commerce is using a ringtone to promote the State.
These are just a few examples of folks using Myxer to “ring outside the box.” If you create or come across other cool, creative, unusual or off the wall uses of MyxerTones, let us know!
