KEY FEATURES OF THE SMS SYSTEM THAT COMES WITH YOUR APP & MOBILE WEBSITE

BROADCAST BY TEXT

ALERTING YOUR CUSTOMERS: Your App & Mobile Website includes an "Alert Page" that you can quickly update any time to alert your customers about a critical marketing offer that is of value to them. Through this Alert Page, you can post discount and promotional offers, sales invitations, special announcements, product launches, today's specials, and much more.

PLEASE NOTE: Having your App on their phone does not automatically subscribe someone to receive your alerts via SMS. Customers must subscribe accordingly in order to receive your updates via text message. See below to learn more about how our SMS subscription process works.

DESIGNED TO TICKLE: With our App & Mobile Website system, our bonus SMS service is primarily designed to "tickle" your customers, a term which means to "alert them to an important update". The expected result is that, in addition to reading your text message, they will continue to check your App or Mobile Website for any additional information. (Remember, you can update the contents of every page of your App & Mobile Website any time you want, as often as you want.)

Example: You're a restaurant using your app to promote your daily featured menu item. Today, you update your app with a photo of your famed Ossobuco along with a great write-up and a special comment from your chef. Next, you update your app's Alert Page - then send an SMS - to inform everyone to check your App or Mobile Website and find out more about tonight's special.

TOTAL COVERAGE: There is no better way to get people's attention than making sure your message is delivered to them multiple ways. By adding SMS to your App & Mobile Website your message is accessible to nearly 100% of all types of feature cellphones, making your critical information available even to those who still do not have a smartphone.

NO SANE REASON: With the onslaught of smartphones, there is no longer a strategic reason why you should continue doing mobile marketing using only SMS Text as your only platform. For the same amount of money you'd pay for an SMS advertising service elsewhere, we can provide you with your own iPhone App and Mobile Website, plus provide you with a built-in unlimited-use SMS service at no extra charge.

ORDERS FROM OUTSIDE THE USA: Our SMS system works only within the United States, while our iPhone Apps and Mobile Websites are accessible to all users globally. If you are ordering from outside the U.S., you will still have to pay the same rates even if you can't use the built-in SMS features of our system. Our pricing is based on the value of our App & Mobile Website, and the SMS service is just a bonus feature where applicable.

UNLIMITED SUBSCRIBERS, UNLIMITED MESSAGES

The bonus SMS service that comes with your iPhone App & Mobile Website will enable consumers to exercise the option of receiving your alert messages via SMS text message. Without having to open your App or visit your Mobile Website to check for updates, they can receive the very same information you post in the Alert Page of your App & Mobile Website.

There is NO LIMIT to the frequency with which you can update your Alert Page. You can update your Alert Page any time you want, as often as you want. And each time you do so, you should send a SMS Text broadcast to all your subscribers to let them know!

How Your SMS System Works

1.) It Starts With Choosing Your SMS "Keyword"
When you're ordering our service, you will be asked to choose a unique "Keyword" which you would like to use for consumers to identify your SMS campaign. This is not a "search engine keyword," it is more like an account name of sorts, but it is specifically assigned for your texting platform subscription process. (It does not necessarily have to be your account name.)

Your Keyword can be your brand, business name, or any word consumers can easily remember and associate with your business. 

(Example: If your business is Joe's Pizzeria, you may want to use "joes", or "pizza", or "joespizza", or "delivery", or "hungry".)

2.) Once Your Account Is Activated, Consumers Can Subscribe Via SMS
In order to receive your alert messages via SMS, consumers must first subscribe via SMS. They do this by sending a text message containing the words: "ticaap Keyword" to the short code number 368266.

Using our example above, consumers would text the words ticaap pizza to 368266 in order to subscribe.

3.) Consumers Follow The Simple Opt-in Process
After the consumer texts "ticaap Keyword" to 368266, our SMS engine will automatically send back an SMS reply requesting the consumer to verify their intent to subscribe to your keyword. After the consumer verifies accordingly, our SMS engine sends them a confirmation. At that point, the new subscriber can start receiving your alert messages via SMS.
