Do you consider your personal mobile number private information? Are you taking any steps to keep it private? We all have times where we need to give people we don't neccessarily trust a way to contact us - ordering an item from a store, placing an online ad, filling a form for information, giving a contact to people you just met, etc. Once you give your personal number away, do you know where it goes? Haven't we all gotten tele-marketing calls and wondered how they obtained your number?
Our approach to addressing this problem is to give you a Text2.Me phone number that can be used in these cases. That number can be set up to forward incoming calls or texts to your personal number so you don't need an additional mobile phone. Text replies from your mobile device will appear to come from your Text2.Me service number. Since Text2.Me is a monthly service without any long term contract commitments, when you no longer need the number, just terminate the service. With the basic service starting at $10 per month, this is also a very cost effective alternative to purchasing new number from yoru mobile phone provider.
As a business owner, why would you want clients, customers and prospects sending your business text messages?
Easy - more and more people use text messaging that any other communications medium. Certainly the younger generation uses SMS text messaging far more than any other other way to communicate.
Take an example: as a restaraunt owner, why have your customers first SMS text each other to set up a date to go to your restaurant, and then jump to the telephone function and call you to make a reservation, and then jump back to text messaging to confirm with the party?
Just have your customer send you a text for the reservation. You make the reservation and send them the confirmation back. The customer never breaks out of their most heavily used communications medium.
Text2.me will give you a dedicated phone number to put onto your web site, and then your customers can reach you by SMS text with a single click. It can't be any easier to reach your customers.
