Text Enable Your Business Landline Phone

We recently text-enabled our long time landline phone here in the office and we learned something very interesting.

People are Texting Our Landline

We’ve already received several text messages from customers and prospects.  In most cases, they simply didn’t realize that it was a landline.  In some cases, they didn’t even think to call they line — they simply prefer to text.

Text to Landline is a great tool for lead generation and for customer service.  Watch this video for more information.



Canada issues reminder on new regulations regarding text message marketing

Effective July 1, 2014, all text messages in Canada delivered over Common Short Codes must adhere to the country’s anti-spam law (Canada’s Anti-Spam Law – CASL) with the main provision being, “the sender will need to obtain consent from the recipient before sending the message and will need to include information that identifies the sender and enables the recipient to withdraw consent.”

The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA) is recommending that all content providers and future Common Short Code users such as clients using shortcode 84444 be familiar with all regulations regarding text message marketing, and if assistance is required to contact the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) or seek independent legal advice.

More on the upcoming regulations can be found on the CWTA website.
