Text Marketing Information


Why is Text Marketing So Effective?

Almost every Adult consumer today carries a phone with then at all times!

Text Marketing alerts go directly to consumers phones via a Text.

Customers sign up to receive Text messages from Businesses that offer Text alerts.


The process is very simple, each business is assigned a Short Code which is 5 Digit number such as "71441" and a Keyword such as "PIZZA" (a Keyword can be any short word that is unique for that given business)

Once a customer sends a text (opt-in) to the shortcode number that contains the Keyword they become a subscriber to that businesses text alert campaign.  Once they are a subscriber they will receive Text alerts whenever the business decided to send a text message.

By creating a Text campaign business can easily let customers know of sales and specials they have with almost immediate delivery rate.
