This chapter presents the use of mobile multimedia for marketing purposes. Using V-Card, a service to create personalized multimedia messages, as an example, the advantages of sponsored messaging are illustrated.

Topics of discussion include related projects, as marketing campaigns utilizing SMS and MMS are becoming more popular, the technical infrastructure of the V-card system, and an outline of social and legal issues emerging from mobile marketing.
