Worcester, UK (PRWEB) February 6, 2006
TxtLocal Ltd (http://www.txtlocal.com) has extended its SMS text messaging service to provide a free customer mobile number collection system to all businesses, services and community groups. A simple number/keyword combination can be printed anywhere to enable the rapid collection of opt-in mobile phone numbers from customers who wish to receive special offers and news on their mobile phones.
”Text message marketing has already proven to be a highly effective communication and promotional tool for many businesses worldwide," said TxtLocal Managing Director, Al Shortland. "TxtLocal Ltd now uniquely offers all businesses the ability to quickly and inexpensively harness the power of SMS messaging in their day-to-day operations. Our free system makes the collection of opt-in customer mobile numbers a breeze."
The impact of this service on the way businesses communicate with customers is already proving immensely successful. Any business will now be able to send an instant, low cost promotion directly into the hands of their best customers.
Jim Taylor, a nightclub manager in Essex says: "We use TxtLocal to send text messages directly to 3000 customers. We target the promotion for 4pm on Friday and say "Show this message on the door to get £2 off the entrance fee". Most weeks we get a 40% response. Far cheaper, more effective and immediate than sending letters, and it brings a community feel to our club."
Chris Penkoks, a Chinese takeaway owner in Leeds says: "We publish our number and keyword on our menus and slip a piece of paper into all orders saying "To hear about special offers text WOK to 07786200350". In the first week we got 80 customer numbers and we get about the same each week. We now send about 400 message offers each week like "Show this message to get 20% discount on Wednesday" and we have a queue of people stretching down the street!"
