New York, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
SimpleTexting, a New York City-based text message marketing platform that allows organizations and individuals to text their contacts, has announced a new Free-for-Life plan now available to the public. The Free-for-Life option provides free text message marketing for up to 100 messages per month, along with a single custom keyword.
The Free-for-Life pricing plan is the first of its kind in the text marketing industry; trial periods as short as seven days are commonplace among competitors, but never before has a platform offered a free plan without a time restriction. The new plan, which does not require a credit card, will enable businesses and local organizations to start sending text message campaigns at no cost while building a list of subscribers.
“Many small businesses see the appeal of text marketing—reaching your customers instantly and personally—but don’t want to pay while they’re still building up their contact list,” commented Gene Sigalov, Chief Operating Officer & Co-Founder of SimpleTexting. “Now there’s a way to text for free while collecting contacts, so they can see the power of text marketing without paying for it.”
The permission-based promotions requires contacts to give express consent before they can receive any text messages, a process normally done by texting a custom keyword to a shortcode (a 5- or 6-digit phone number, e.g. 555888). Free-for-Life users will be able to upgrade to paid accounts while retaining their contacts and campaigns, with Pay As You Go plans available for as little as $5 and monthly plans starting as low as $15 for 250 messages.
SimpleTexting enables companies and organizations to engage their customers, clients, and community via text messaging. Businesses increase revenue and customer loyalty by sending targeted text campaigns, including mobile coupons, text-to-win contests, appointment reminders, and more from our easy-to-use website. Providing superior support with industry-specific guides, one-on-one consultations, and the ability to develop custom features on-demand, SimpleTexting works closely with clients to ensure success.
