NEW MANAGED SMS SERVICE LAUNCHED FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
August 14 2015
Partnership marketing specialist, Howse Jackson Marketing, is launching the UK’s very first fully-managed text service.
The service allows small businesses to broadcast text messages in volume at a time and date set by them. Unlike most rival services the text campaigns are fully-managed in-house by Howse Jackson Marketing, allowing SME’s to outsource their text messaging campaigns and get back to what they do best – running their own businesses.
The service works as follows: Companies submit their text wording (160 characters or less) and specify the time and date for when they’d like their text campaigns broadcast. They also set the volume of customers they’d like the texts sent to.
Howse Jackson Marketing subsequently send a test SMS message to a mobile number to ensure the messaging and all links are correct. The main text broadcast follows at the appointed time and date.
Nick Howse, managing director of Howse Jackson Marketing, says: “Text messages are one of the most powerful forms of advertising and perfect for rewarding loyal customers, generating footfall and encouraging repeat business.”
Howse continues, “SME’s have enough on their plates without having to learn to navigate and master sophisticated text messaging platforms. We do it all for them and take any stress away!”
For companies without an existing database of mobile numbers, Howse Jackson Marketing is also able to create and manage an ICO compliant, opted-in mobile database for SME’s.
