In today’s world, texting is one of the most popular ways for people to communicate with each other. In fact, there are many who actually complain that they receive more text messages than they do phone calls from their closest friends. And while texting may not have been invented specifically for the purpose of avoiding phone calls, it has certainly provided quite the convenience in the world of communicating.
After all, texting allows people to send quick messages to more than person at the same time. Short, quick messages are efficient time-saving mechanisms that provide the same service as a short and quick phone call – except that they are shorter and quicker! We’re quite certain that we don’t necessarily need to champion the act of texting as it is a widely popular form of communicating with people all over the world.
MeloTel is proud to announce some very special news! Starting today, MeloTel customers can order “Incoming SMS” on their business telephone numbers. SMS (Short Message Service) is a text messaging service component of most mobile telephony systems and web services. Not unlike standard text messaging, an SMS service enables users to send messages through a variety of delivery options.
Those options include API POST/GET, Email, SIP or forwarding of the SMS to another SMS number. In the past, texting was a service that was pretty much reserved for cell phones alone. At least, this is what most people assumed. With cloud-based technology, it has made the seemingly impossible a reality! Never before has SMS been available through a business owner’s primary business phone number.
SMS is used primarily by businesses in order to quickly communicate with all of their prospects and customers at once. It helps to communicate through mass messages in a personal and non-intrusive manner. As a business owner, SMS can help you to become a much more effective communicator, enabling you to send time-sensitive alerts to your mobile subscribers instantly. This will drive more traffic to your business, helping you to generate higher conversion rates.
With SMS, you can send 1 or 100,000 messages with a single click! Simply segment your contacts into unlimited groups and begin to send mobile coupons, schedule reminders and market new products and services. Customers can even text you back and you will get the response in your email.
Here’s the best part of the new SMS service: It’s incredibly affordable! At only $3.00 per month and just $0.03 per incoming SMS message, the new SMS service is amazingly cost-effective. And, by the way, we are currently working on making the service MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) compatible. That means that, just like standard text messaging, you’ll eventually be able to use MeloTel’s new Incoming SMS service to send and receive content such as photos and videos.
For more information about our Incoming SMS service, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-888-MELOTEL or use the Live Chat feature on our website!
