Text messaging has become the easiest way to interact with people. From the business perspective, it’s an easy way to communicate with your customers. Television networks, radio stations and even religious organizations have been maximizing the 4-numbered, easy to remember text access codes to interact with their viewers, listeners and members.
With this in mind, I have been thinking of using the same service to an organization I’m part of for easy communication to members and potential recipients of our services. On the other hand, there isn’t really an out-of-the-box, cheap solution available. Txtjock.com was introduced to me by a friend of mine who works in a radio station. Unfortunately, txtjock must have been designed to work for high-volume, always online organizations like TV and radio stations.
Just recently, we came across a newly launched service by the guys at FingerApps — Txtmokko.com. It’s a free service for organizations, even for individuals. You or your organization get a unique key word where your clients or members can text with their message using a network access number. You then receive the message through the web or email and reply to the message for free. There’s a bunch of possible usage for this service that any organization can maximize. We recently implemented this. So far, so cool! 😉
