Auto-Responder: What is it?
Auto-responder is a feature in NetMessenger that allows you to set up automated responses to either all incoming messages, or specific messages that contain a certain keyword.
There are numerous applications for this, from something as simple as an ‘out-of-office’ type response to all incoming messages to numerous campaigns set to respond to particular phrases.
A great example of this is some Estate Agents publish a code on their for sale sign-age or ads in the property pages. People can then text in this code (for example ‘house123’) to the agent’s Virtual Mobile Number or Shortcode. The prospect who sent in the code then gets an automated response containing details such as number of bedrooms, asking price etc.
It could also be as simple as a confirmation message, like many takeaways use “Thank you for your order, it will be with you in XX mins”.
We also have nightclubs and events specialists using it to issue free or discounted entry, guests text in and get the discount code as a response.

Most car dealerships and garages already have almost everything in place to start an effective SMS marketing campaign. When customers go into a car garage to have a service or a MOT done, they almost always give the dealership their mobile phone number. The reason for this is simple: if a customer is bringing their car in to get checked and they don't want to wait around for any work to be carried out, they'll simply head into town or run a few errands, until the garage gives them a call on their mobile to let them know the work has been done. That means most garages will have a healthy amount of mobile numbers already in their database, but quite often a garage will overlook the potential that their database of contacts presents.

If you’re tuned into the self-help industry at all, you know who Wayne Dyer was. He spent decades writing transformational books to help people improve their lives and find happiness. He died summer 2015 at his home in Maui at the age of 75. It’s probably an understatement to say he inspired millions of people. So when I came across an article about a publisher using SMS messaging to let people know about a new book discussing his legacy I wasn’t too surprised. Not at first anyway.
