“Simply by sending a text message to a number she saw on a Las Vegas billboard in February, Miller gave Adidas and a marketing outfit, MOVO, all the information they needed to hawk basketball shoes to her over the phone. They knew Miller was in Vegas, since she responded to the billboard offering information about National Basketball Assn. All-Star game events nearby. Her phone number gave away her hometown, indicating an allegiance to the East Coast All-Star team. The payoff came when Adidas sent Miller a text message about the sale of 200 pairs of limited-edition All-Star basketball shoes. Tipped off, Miller lined up outside an Adidas store in Vegas with hundreds of others. "We got there really early with our big ol' cup of coffee," says Miller, "and of course the line was out the door." She bought two pair for her eldest boys.” (Sell-Phone Revolution, Business Week)
