Massively improve your business SMS with SMS Web Pages

SMS has been around for many years now, in fact the first SMS was sent way back in 1992 by Neil Papworth, who sent ‘Merry Christmas’ to the Director of Vodafone Richard Jarvis.

Since then the mobile phone has grown and grown in its importance, and is now it has become our best friend and never leaves our side. On average people check their mobile phone 150 times per day, spending around 177 minutes using them, with more than 90% of all smartphone users saying they have their phones within arms reach 24 hours a day, seven days a week (Source: Morgan Stanley).

The mobile phone has changed a lot since it sent that first text message, from the huge, bulky mobile phones, to the introduction of the small, sleek and stylish smartphone. The smartphone has enabled us to, surf the internet, shop, watch movies, listen to music, anything and nearly everything can now be conducted through our mobile phone – and if it can’t, then it’s not worth doing.

However the main communication method has not changed, the trusty and powerful SMS text message. There has been some little bits of extra functionality added over the years, ability to send longer texts, send images, emojis and links etc. But now we have a new amazing feature to add, introducing SMS Web Pages.
