How Text Messaging Can Save You Money

Aug 29, 2008
Sending text messages through a cell phone is an inexpensive alternative to placing a phone call on the same cell phone. There are benefits to using text messages for different segments of society. The only limitation is that the message must be shortened to 160 characters or less for each message that is sent. This necessity to keep messages short is why the use of abbreviated words is becoming more prevalent now.

The home user of text messages will find greater convenience in communicating with family and friends. Parents of school children appreciate the ability to get in touch with their children instantly. Young children can learn to use a cell phone for text messaging purposes easily. The same goes for people with elderly parents; they can check on their loved ones easily and quickly. In an emergency situation, a text has the power to
save a life.

People, who may have found it difficult to use a cell phone for a phone call, find it easy to send text messages. Deaf people are able to communicate effectively with others through the use of text messages. With this inexpensive tool of communication, deaf people are able to communicate effectively with more people, including emergency services.

Businesses are finding that they can create an effective marketing campaign with the use of text messages. Customers may subscribe to a company's text message services to learn about new products and services. Some companies will send a text message that serves as a coupon, which can be redeemed by showing the text message to a store representative.

Businesses are finding that text messages are a very convenient way to contact their customers with cell phones for various reasons. A business may keep in touch with their customers to let them know when their order is ready or an appointment time is available. Businesses also find that text messages are an effective way for customers to communicate back with the company.

Not only are businesses using text to contact their customers, they are using text messages to contact their company's workers. Work colleagues no longer have to stop everything that they are doing when they send text messages to fellow workers, no matter when either party is located. When an office equips all its workers with a cell phone for text messages, it is easy to communicate with workers and colleagues easily without much
further expense.

A company of any size can benefit from adding text messages to their communication toolbox. There are different text message services that make it easy to communicate with large groups of people. It is effortless to send out text messages automatically, according to a clock or calendar schedule. Senders can monitor the delivery of their sent text messages. There are also interpretation services for text messaging.

For all the functionality that text gives to a home or company, it does not take much set up to be able to send text messages. One cell phone or computer can reach another specific cell phone by dialing the right cell phone number. Messages may be received by another cell phone or computer with Internet access. Text messaging is a revolutionary way of communication that erases the expense and time associated with making a cell phone call.
