Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
iQ media, the media intelligence platform technology leader, today announced an industry first: free SMS text alerts whenever designated terms are mentioned on TV.
“We are proud to be the first company to offer SMS text alerts on TV coverage as it airs,” said John Derham, CEO of iQ media. “With the rise of texting as a predominant method to communicate important information, public relations and marketing professionals need this kind of service. Email is cumbersome, and the important fact of being on a television program can go unnoticed. SMS text alerts are much more likely to be seen.”
iQ media’s Mobile Alert Service actively scans all US broadcast TV as it airs. When the desired keyword is mentioned on air, the service will send an SMS text to the user’s cell phone. In general, these texts will arrive within the hour of the on-air mention, providing extremely fast notifications that enable a quick response if needed.
The iQ media Mobile Alert Service is a free service to anyone who registers at http://info.iqmediacorp.com/text-alert-offer-pr/. This base service provides up to 10 alerts per month. Customers can purchase upgraded plans from iQ media, which offer additional features such as instant play back of the on-air mention right on the user’s phone.
The iQ media Mobile Alert Service is immediately available. Users can register for the service at http://info.iqmediacorp.com/text-alert-offer-pr/.
