Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) November 17, 2011

What's better than a QR code?

ShopText Inc., a leader in mobile marketing and loyalty solutions, today announced the launch of ScanTxt, a web-based mobile marketing solution which combines QR codes and text messaging keywords. ScanTxt is self service and easy to use. In minutes, businesses of any size can create an integrated QR code and text message call to action to place in any offline ad. The codes can connect prospects and customers to any selected digital content, including websites, facebook, LinkedIN, blogs, YouTube and Vimeo videos, slideshare and apps.

ScanTxt is FREE for the first 30 days or 15 text messages. Monthly pricing plans range from $9.99 to $999.99 per month based on text message volume with no limit on QR code scans. ScanTxt provides real-time reporting of scans, texts and clicks by day, time of day and carrier from a single dashboard.

ScanTxt codes can be updated any time. Consumers can engage with online content the moment they see a ScanTxt enabled ad by using their QR code reader to scan the code or simply by texting a keyword to 467467. ScanTxt leverages ShopText’s partnership with Helferich Patent Licensing, LLC (HPL). ShopText is the only HPL authorized mobile marketing platform approved to offer “text to shortcode programs” on behalf of third parties.

“98% of all mobile phones in the U.S. are able to send text messages and 70% of the U.S. population is texting. QR codes are rapidly gaining popularity, but just 6.2% of U.S. mobile users scanned a QR Code in June, according to ComScore,” said Steve Roberts, CEO of ShopText, Inc. “Clients asked us to provide both QR and sms calls to actions for their mobile marketing programs. We have seen significantly higher response rates with a QR+SMS combination and decided to launch ScanTxt. The automated mobile marketing service maximizes mobile response and makes it easy for offline consumers to connect with online content using either a QR code or a text message.”

ScanTxt is offering a 25% discount on the first three months of any paid plan signed-up by December 15, 2011 with promocode SAVE25.
