Remember that although we’re looking back on 2007, it’s not too late to use the information below to grow your business in 2008!


To ring in the New Year we announced 100% market penetration in Spain and Portugal. Get some great marketing tips for these territories here.


The Payforit scheme had a massive impact on the mobile web this year. As long ago as February we had everything in place to offer you and your customers Payforit compliance.


In March we brought your our live traffic ticker, which you can see at http://www.bango.com/live


We were proud to anounce our new web service APIs for subscriptions and in application billing. Read more about the control these tools offer you.


May saw the launch of our Bango Forums. The forums have gone from strength to strength since, and are an excellent resource for you to chat with your peers on the mobile web.


We teamed up with Google to offer you some free Google AdWords vouchers.


We added Sprint billing in the US, adding an extra 50 million potential customers for your service.


Following up on the success of the Bango Forums, August saw the launch of a range of support tools. As part of our comitment to enabling you to best manage your business we launched the Bango Service Blog. We also launched the Bango.net consumer support web site and end user forums to help support your customers.


September saw the launch of Payforit in the UK, we identified a new trend with mobile sales crossing borders and we were thrilled to collect the award for Best Billing Provider at the Mobile Entertainment Awards.


If you’re running a subscription service then we gave you some great tips in October, as well as the ability to subscribe to our blog so the latest news, releases and tips are sent straight to your inbox.


November saw some real fireworks with our drive to open up the mobile web. We launched our ilovemobileweb.com campaign to raise the profile of our industry. We also announced the Bango Button, our free, quick and easy way to get content from a PC web site to a mobile device.


I’m sure you’ll agree that 2007 has seen massive strides in opening up the mobile web and we are excellently placed to take this momentum into 2008.

Here’s to a successful 2008 for all our customers!
