BEDFORD, Mass., June 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The popularity of mobile devices has created a tremendous opportunity for businesses to reach consumers in new ways. While apps may be the rage, mobile communications, especially text messages, are emerging as the preferred communications channel for many consumers. Free to End User (FTEU) text messaging is one of the most effective, but underutilized, technologies in mobile communications. It allows businesses to set up text programs which are entirely free of operator charges to the consumer. This powerful tool is the only way for a business to establish a truly free message service that unlocks new ways of communicating with its customer base. 

FTEU text messaging has proven its value by creating new business models, removing the cost barrier to consumer participation, and complying with legislation for marketing, collections and other processes. But while FTEU text messaging has been used for over a decade by mobile carriers and a small number of large corporations, the technology has remained virtually undiscovered, until now.

In this complimentary one-hour webinar, SoundBite Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:SDBT) and mBlox will share actionable tips for integrating FTEU text messaging into a proactive customer communications strategy. Attendees will learn:

  • Success stories about companies that have implemented FTEU text messaging campaigns
  • Why text messaging is an important and valuable element, and how it can be done cost-effectively for the company and its customers
  • How companies should integrate different components of the mobile ecosystem into their communications strategy across the full customer lifecycle
