Quick, Easy and Effective SMS Texting for Businesses, Community Groups and Clubs

Milton Keynes, UK, 25th February 2009 Summary Geodesa communications has launched an online SMS Texting service that clubs, groups, businesses and charities can use to communicate with a group of people instantly. GeoTEXT makes it very easy to send news, promotions or alerts to any number of club members or customers mobiles in seconds. http://www.geotext.co.uk Main body SMS is one of the most effective ways of instantly communicating with people. GeoTEXT is quick and easy to set up, taking about 2 minutes from subscribing to sending the first SMS. Set up is free and users only pay for the SMS they send, buying messages by the “bundle”. The system can manage unlimited groups of mobile numbers, import numbers and details from Excel, mail merge details into messages and schedule delivery up to a year in advance using the online interface.

Ed Neal, managing director of Geodesa limited which distributes GeoTEXT, says “If you have not already started using SMS text messaging GeoTEXT makes it easy for the small club, business or multinational to start using SMS as a means of effectively communicating with their members or customers. A GeoTEXT SMS goes straight into the pocket of the recipient within seconds – who do you know that does not instinctively check there mobile when bleeps telling them a new message has arrived?” In these times of recession and credit crunch there may have never been such a low cost, high impact way of instantly delivering your message to customers. Ed’s not talking about SMS Spamming, but delivering your message to people who have opted in to receive messages from you. Such a warm market can lead to very high conversion rates of up to 50% making it very cost effective. Text credits start at £8 for a bundle of 100 credits with larger volumes costing 3.9 pence per message. Volumes over 100000 are available. This is very cheap considering the cost, time and effort involved when sending out a mail shot, which typically only get a limited response. Remember that most email newsletters go into a SPAM folder or never get read. Ed goes on to say “The uses are unlimited and varied. Our current GeoTEXT customers use it for sending staff details about last minute changes of meeting venue or time, businesses sending a discounts and promotions to customers at their restaurant, sailing clubs telling members of races and events, schools telling parents that school is closed due to snow or for event management companies making sure people are in the right place at the right time. What I love is the immediacy of SMS. From someone having an initial idea, they can have it in the pockets of thousands within minutes.” GeoTEXT provides a free keyword and number to help the user grow a list of opt-in customers who are keen to receive messages and offers. Five digit short codes instead of a mobile number are also available. http://www.geotext.co.uk
