Make New Year simple, schedule it
Every year in the UK, in the half an hour before and after midnight on the 31st December literally millions of text messages are sent, so much so in a short space of time that the mobile operators can’t handle it. So your New Year texts don’t arrive for ages.
Most people will have some recollection of the trickle of texts that come through for the rest of the night that were sent in that timeframe. So what’s the answer – you schedule your New Year texts in advance before you go out partying.
If you schedule your personal messages in advance for the time you want using NetMessenger they are guaranteed to reach their destination within a couple of minutes.
Not only that, but of course it is cheaper and easier than trying to type on your phone while someone is trying to get you involved in singing Auld Lang Syne. And you won’t beep on your friends’ phones at 5.00 am when they are just getting off to sleep!

With all the evidence indicating that text messaging still has plenty of life left in it, here are 9 reasons why SMS Marketing still has lots to offer. Don't miss out on what SMS marketing can bring to your business.
If you are a car dealership learn how SMS marketing can help you generate more enquiries, turn more enquiries into sales and ultimately promote your brand and increase customer loyalty and repeat sales. Sounds to good to be true? Read this post and you might change your mind.
When handled correctly, SMS can be a dream partner for e-commerce and has a well-deserved place in your customer service suite. Once you have the all-important opt-in for SMS marketing compliance, you can begin to use SMS as a way to differentiate your e-commerce offer to make your customers' purchasing experience particularly pleasurable.
Starting an SMS marketing campaign can be a daunting task. Gathering explicit opt ins can take time, as you need to make an investment in advertising. So why not just get a jumpstart and buy a list of mobile numbers from an organisation that already has the opt ins? You could do that, but it’s probably harder than just getting people to opt in on their own. Here’s why.
Used across numerous sectors, SMS messaging can be particularly rewarding in the entertainment and hospitality industries. With a combined revenue of over £140 billion, the entertainment and hospitality industries are thriving and their worth is expected to increase substantially in the near future. However, with many Britons having less disposable income to play with, businesses will be vying for custom more than ever. In order to attract new consumers and retain existing customers, companies will need to develop, enhance and refine their marketing techniques. SMS is one such proven technique.
If you aren’t seeing a positive response from your SMS marketing then your list may be thinking of it as spam and just ignoring it like they do much of their email. So take your latest marketing messages and examine them again with these four questions in mind.
