SMS Text is a key new media tool and everyone from web masters to software developers, programmers and IT managers are realising it is something they must integrate if they want to deliver an up to date service for their clients.

Leading mobile marketing firm http://www.txtlocal.co.uk has launched a new reseller package aimed at the IT sector. The generous programme will give IT professionals 50% of all profits generated from any business they refer to Txtlocal’s online SMS service. The venture is expected to be a huge hit with IT professionals seeking SMS integration with client applications.
Txtlocal have already experienced a massive increase in the number of IT professionals signing up for the service on behalf of their clients and this trend is expected to continue as more businesses explore the benefits of text messaging for both marketing and customer service purposes.
One of the reasons for this rapid growth is due to the accessibility of low cost SMS solutions in the market. With the help of IT professionals and a basic knowledge of http coding businesses can very easily send automated appointment reminders, server alerts and online booking confirmations. Technically it’s easy to implement automated SMS messages and with no cost in setting up a service businesses can start sending messages quickly and easily for just a few pence a message.
Txtlocal IT Director Alastair Shortland believes the recent growth in business from the IT sector is also linked to the huge demand for new media technology. Shortland believes that businesses are looking for tactics that will give them a competitive edge in the market place and SMS is a classic new media tool. “SMS Text is a key new media tool and everyone from web masters to software developers, programmers and IT managers are realising it is something they must integrate if they want to deliver an up to date service for their clients.”
Txtlocal’s core target market is the SME sector including businesses such as hair and beauty salons, recruitment agencies, hotels, taxi firms, events companies and any other businesses needing to send automated messages.
With a robust referral program in place it is hoped more IT professionals will integrate SMS texting into their client’s applications and website, whilst earning themselves some extra revenue in the process.
Txtlocal MD Darren Daws claims that there is huge potential for IT professionals to earn extra income from the initiative “Resellers could effectively earn money every time their client sends a text” He continues “It’s a great way to earn extra revenue whilst delivering clients with a service that could effectively improve their customer service drastically.”
