Anyone use text messaging marketing?

by RWilt 6 replies
Just curious as to if anyone uses text messaging marketing or use it to contact your list.

If you have used it what is a good program to send bulk messages? I know you can just email a sms msg to a phone but I'm looking for a pc based program.

Thanks

    I don't use it but one of those who get really annoyed by those who use this method.. I receive sms spam like 1-15 every month.. WTF.. I don't know if it is effective.. But I hate it.. I hate getting spam in my cell phone..

      I dont think text message marketing would be very successful . Most people would simply delete the messages and get very irritated.

      I know Id hate it.

    One of the best ways to alienate people... be very careful.

      Two things (apart from those already mentioned) make this a mine field:

      1. Many people have to pay to RECEIVE texts, not just to send them.

      2. In some countries, SMS is regulated and are happy when they're dishing out HUGE fines when the rules get broken.

      Cheers,

      Neil
