Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 16, 2011
CarpenterDev LLC, a provider of custom Java web apps for small to medium sized businesses in the North American market, announced today that it has released a new web service named HeyTextMe.
The new service is targeted towards small to medium sized businesses that want the benefit of providing their consumers a convenient method for accessing detailed product or service information by texting a message code to a phone number. During the past five years business text messaging has become a popular service for connecting offline consumers with online content. Sources such as CNET have identified the trend among consumers to prefer text messaging for communication over email and phone conversations. HeyTextMe was developed to address that trend.
Features of the service include tools to allow clients to create, edit and review what the company calls “HeyTags” – a trademarked icon that displays a message code and the phone number to be texted for the product or service information. Also included are tools for accessing metrics associated with tag performance, and integration with the popular BuildASign web site for creating signs, banners, and other display media, allowing clients to promote their HeyTags.
HeyTextMe should find broad acceptance among clients that want the convenience of text messaging without the high cost typically associated with such services. The service should find acceptance by clients such as real estate agents, insurance agents and local merchants that want to promote specials and drive offline traffic to their web sites.
The service involves the client placing HeyTags on promotional material, such as signs, that when texted by a consumer sends a web link to the client’s web site along with up to 110 characters of information, back to the consumer’s phone. Consumers with phone web browsers, and Internet access, can immediately browse to the client’s web site or transfer the web link to their PC when they return home.
Company President, Bob Carpenter, says, “We’re entering this growing industry to provide quality software services, at low prices, for client’s that, until now, have not had easy access to texting services.”
