So how does free text apply to a business that is hungry to make more contacts and increase their product sales? Well, each person that logs in to a free texting service is given a phone number of sorts. It's not really a phone number that they could transfer to a cell phone or land line but a phone number nonetheless. This phone number is the number that sets up their account. It is also the number that receives reply texts from whomever is being texted from a computer. These phone numbers can be accessed through the same Common Short Code Administration that regular text messages advertisements are sent through.
There are over 5 million free text users. This would add an increase to the number of texting users that you could send messages, ads, or coupons to. The cost would be so small that any return on investment would make this advertising tactic well worth your company's time and effort.
