Supply Content and Generate Revenue via Premium Rate
Astrology and Tarot Lines
Premium rate lines are commonly used for entertainment services with the revenue share being used to generate a profit for both the content provider and the business supplying the entertainment service. With appropriately targeted advertising new age interests such as Astrology and Tarot Readings can generate considerable incomes for the providers.
SMS and Phone Competitions
On-pack competitions and Phone-in competitions can be used to create product awareness, to involve customers in a company's products and services, and to additionally generate sufficient revenue to cover the cost of the promotion, or a profit, dependant on the premium rate tariffs used.
Mobile Phone Content
The mobile phone entertainment market has taken advantage of premium rate billing to generate an income from downloadable content such as ringtones, logos, wallpapers, games, videos. Entertainment services such as prank calls have also found a place in the mobile content providers' offerings.
Technical Support Lines
Software and hardware providers can meet the cost of providing technical support by use of a phone line with a higher tariff than the national rate. The additional cost to the caller essentially charges them for using technical support. An 0871 number is largely seen as an acceptable levy for the service provided.
Information and Fun Lines
Sports results, sports betting tips, gardening advice, health and medication information, TV soap updates and celebrity news are just a few of the applications using premium rate to create a profitable business.
