Bad Weather Alerts
Sitting here looking out of the window at a thoroughly miserable day reminds me that FASTSMS is useful for warning people of adverse weather.
We have literally hundreds of schools using the service for bad weather alerts, texting parents to say “Don’t send your kids in today, we’re snow bound” or “Come and fetch your offspring before we are snowed in”.
We’ve also got flood warning alert systems notifying vulnerable homes via text directly from electronic water level sensors; Search & Rescue teams summoned to help find people lost on moor and mountain and Police and Emergency Services coordinating their reaction to major incidents by text.
Services such as St John’s Ambulance coordinate their volunteers at events as diverse as Notting Hill Carnival and major sporting events. The list of uses in endless.
Did you know that some of the cheap SMS providers around can experience delays of up to 6 hours in the receipt of their texts? That a significant percentage don’t arrive at all? How does that stack up against someone lost on Exmoor or injured in a riot or simply stuck at school? All FASTSMS messages are sent via premium UK routes so always arrive within seconds. And when we talk of “cheap” SMS solutions you are probably only going to save 1p or less per text compared with our high quality system.
If you think you could benefit from this call us on 0800 954 5305 or email email@example.com for expert advice and a free trial if you need it.

If there’s one thing most of us can agree on, it’s that our economic future is uncertain. The world economy reacted to the Brexit vote with unstable and falling stock markets. And no one knows exactly what the Leave vote means for the UK. But there are other uncertainties too. How can SMS help your business in these uncertain times, not just now but in the future.
So what was the first ever smartphone available? Here we discuss whether it was the Simon from IBM back in 1992 or maybe the Ericsson GS88, or the Nokia 9000 communicator a year earlier. Whichever it's hard to imagine a world without smartphones yet almost as difficult to accept they've been around for 20 - 25 years.
When it comes to SMS marketing, a large number of small to medium sized businesses often consider it to be a tactic that is only used by large corporations. It can however, when used correctly, transform your marketing efforts.
The digital age has seen a rise in demand for business coaches to aid you in every aspect of your entrepreneurial efforts. From money mindset to technological solutions, earning passive income and attracting high-paying clients, these days there's a coach for everything. But running a coaching business isn't as simple as the hype would suggest. SMS marketing is the perfect way of supercharging your promotion of your coaching business, here's how.
SMS marketing is not quite like most other marketing. You have such a limited space to get your point across, just 160 characters, more or less. It’s not unlike having to create a print advert for a small space, but somehow it can seem more intimidating. That’s why sometimes it seems like marketers forget one basic rule about writing offers: Always lead with the offer! Sounds simple, right?
