London, UK (PRWEB UK) 24 April 2012
SMS gateway and marketing company Text Marketer have made the changes to allow for sending and receiving via MailChimp so that customers can firstly, send text messages from their MailChimp account and secondly, allow their own clients to join their account lists via text messages.
MailChimp users can now integrate their lists using the plugin from Text Marketer and instantly send an SMS to their contacts. In addition, their customers can join mailing lists using short code via a free keyword supplied by Text Marketer.
Ideal for business looking to market their company with offers and discounts, SMS marketing is a cost effective marketing channel for many companies around the globe; and this development will make it even easier for those to send bulk messages. For users of MailChimp, this is welcomed news.
Text Marketer strives to provide innovative ways in which users can take advantage of sending bulk text messages. This means the development of software, programmes and coding, just to make things that little bit easier for users. The integration of SMS sending and receiving via MailChimp is another example of their efforts.
Users who want to integrate their profiles can create a Text Marketer account and use the promotional code CHIMP to receive 100 SMS credits to get started. Connecting MailChimp and Text Marketer is done using an API key and the process only takes a few minutes to complete.
Richard Hawley, Marketing Director at Text Marketer, spoke about these developments; “We value our customers first and foremost, and we want them to be able to easily send text messages to their customers. As a result of this, we have to adapt to changing technological habits, and so by introducing this plugin, we are allowing users of MailChimp to also benefit from text message marketing.”
“Sending text messages as part of your businesses marketing campaigns are an excellent way to generate interest and brand awareness for your company and we don’t want anyone to feel excluded from this unique and effective marketing tool. Furthermore, our text message credits are very cheap to purchase, so we hope that more people will come to us when they decide to begin using text marketing services.”
