TextUs.Biz enables small businesses to use their existing business phone number to send and receive text messages with their customers, from a computer.
BOULDER, Colorado. (October 1, 2012) — TextUs.Biz, is launching a truly revolutionary new service that enables businesses to use their existing business phone number to send and receive text messages to and from their customers, from a computer. The launch begins October 1, 2012 with the “Text Friendly” Boulder Business initiative.
The “Text Friendly” Boulder Business campaign, which invites up to one hundred Boulder businesses to use TextUs.Biz for free for three months, encourages businesses and their customers to text message in their requests and inquiries rather than make a phone call. By doing so, TextUs.Biz is setting out to make Boulder the first “Text Friendly” business community on the planet.
In addition to offering the service to up to one hundred Boulder businesses for free, during the campaign, TextUs.Biz will donate $.05 to Boulder’s Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) for every text message sent and received by a participating Boulder Business between October 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012 – up to $7,500.
“TextUs.Biz is what many customers and businesses have been waiting for. By using our two-way text message application businesses and their customers can avoid leaving voicemails, being placed on hold or missing calls. Boulder is the perfect city to become the first “Text Friendly” Business Community on the planet, ” said Ted Guggenheim, President of TextUs.Biz. “And with the holidays fast approaching, we realized it was the perfect time to not only launch this revolutionary concept, but allow the community to help families in need at the same time, by providing a donation for each message.”
To become a “Text Friendly” business, simply visit TextUs.Biz/Boulder and request an invitation. Participating businesses in “Text Friendly” Boulder Business initiative will receive:
- Up to three free months of the TextUs.Biz service (Oct-Dec 2012)
- Perpetual Charter Member pricing at $9.99 per month (beginning January 1, 2012). Non-Charter pricing begins at $24.95/month.
- Online or In-person Tutorial
- “Text Us – We’re Text Friendly” Removable Window Decals
- 100 “We’re a Text Friendly Boulder Business” Customer Cards
- Business logo placement on the Text Friendly Boulder EFAA Fund Drive website and display advertising
TextUs.Biz is perfect for all types of businesses including salons, hotels, restaurants, auto services, massage therapists, doctors, dentists, small businesses and retailers. TextUs.Biz is convenient for customers as it allows them to manage their inquiries without having to make a call.
“TextUs.Biz is the most impactful service we’ve used in a long time. Rather than placing dozens of phone calls each morning for our daily appointment confirmations, we simply text them. If needed the customer can easily text back. We can adjust appointment times, in real-time, to address changing schedules and most importantly our customers have a way to reach us in a manner that is convenient for them.” – Connor Doyle, West End Salon
“The Four Seasons is about providing innovative and unparalleled customer service. TextUs.Biz helps us provide the premium level of service and convenience that our guests expect without being intrusive. We are now able to make ourselves available whenever and however our guests wish to communicate, phone, email or text.” – Jason Vargas of Four Seasons Hotel, Denver.
