Texting with your Business Landline

You have a business. Your business has a phone number. The phone number exists from day one. Your customers know this phone number.

But there is a problem. Your customers can’t send you a text. Maybe, they texted you the business landline. But you can’t receive them. Your customers may have been waiting for you to text back. The text messages go to a black hole.

We have a solution: WikiPro business texting. We can text enable your existing business land line so you and your customers can have a two way texting.

Typically SMS short code is used for business texting. What is a Short Code? An SMS short code is a 5-6 digit phone number that is used by businesses to opt-in consumers to their SMS programs, and then used to send text message coupons, offers, promotions, and etc. to those customers that had previously opted-in.

But SMS short code is expensive and costs tens of thousands dollars per year. Also, businesses have to advertise to let customers know about the SMS short code. So SMS short code is only viable for big businesses.

For small to medium business, to text enable the business landline is the way to go. Check out Wikipro’s affordable pricing. For as little as $35 per month, you can have your business landline sending and receiving text messages (SMS) or picture messages (MMS).

Why texting? Texting is the preferred way of communication for customers. Research shows that SMS open rates are as high as 98%, comparing that to just 20% of all emails.  And, on average, it takes 90 seconds for someone to respond to a text and 90 minutes to respond to an email.

It is easy to send a text message once your business landline is text enabled. Businesses can log into a web browser or Mobile App to send texts to customers any where, any time.

Note you still keep your landline with your current provider, there is no change in your voice bill. You are still the owner of the business landline and WikiPro just adds the capacity for you to send/receive text messages with the landline number.
