Hi Guys!

Im looking into creating a piece of software to help small businesses send out special offers my text messages to their customer base.

Do any of you have experience with mass communication software? Good experiences or bad? Or is there anything that you would want from one for it to be right for your business (price, ease of use, etc)?

Thanks for the help!

Who wants to get special offers by text message?

I certainly don't and I wouldn't have thought you do, either. For 99.9% of cases, not a good way of marketing IMHO...

Agreed!
It is extremely annoying getting text message spam.

The open rates of SMS messages is BY FAR higher than any other form of marketing. And if they "opt-in" to receive your messages it is just like email marketing in that way. So it can definitely be a great way to market as long as you are doing it in the right way... with permission, not spamming, and so on.
