TextByChoice® was established in 2011 with the intent of creating a better approach for businesses and organizations to
connect with their audiences. Traditional communication avenues are dated and have low Open/Read rates, yet,
they are expensive and relatively untargeted.
TextByChoice has developed a comprehensive, commercial Texting engine that bridges the gap by providing a 2-way,
instant communication mechanism. Our messaging platform uses SMS technology to create a direct connection with the
intended audience in real time while keeping costs under control. Some uses are listed below:
Organizations (Schools, religious & community based organizations, and trade organizations etc.)
can reach all stakeholders instantly in emergencies and for event reminders and quick announcements.
Medical offices can instantly send customized appointment and bill pay reminders.
Businesses can boost sales in slow times through instant promotions.
In short, TextByChoice modernizes and economizes communication for businesses and organizations.
Our core products are built on the foundation of text messaging for two main reasons:
Cell phones are regulated by the government. They cannot be spammed like email or web advertising. Thus, visibility is significantly higher.
98% Text messages are Read!
Compare this to 10% with Emails and 2% with regular mail and you will see how the other avenues often result in waster effort and capital.
Unlike traditional media, by using our Texting platform, you are only reaching out to targeted subscribers who are either
part of your organization (e.g. members/staff/parents/) or have shown an interest in your products/services and are potential buyers.
Thus, you are using your communication and marketing dollars highly effectively!
Let’s look at why Text Messaging is an effective marketing tool:
There are over 300 million cell phone users in the USA.
Over 75% of these subscribers use text messaging.
More than 2 trillion (2000 billion) messages were are sent last year in the US.
SMS is more popular on mobile phones than social networking or Internet usage
SMS works on any cellphone; no need for a data plan or even a smart phone.
73% of users say SMS is most vital feature on the cellphone.
By not using the Texting avenue, you are missing out on a tremendous communications and marketing opportunity!
