Speaker 1: How can SMS help my business grow? Here’s an example. Suzy is a marketing director for a museum. She uses CallFire to send her members text reminders so that they never miss a great exhibit. She even includes a link so smart-phone users can get all the exhibit details. Now that members know to visit the museum, Suzy’s got another marketing magic trick up her sleeve once they get there. She posts signs inviting visitors to text, “I love art,” to her CallFire phone number. Once they text in, they automatically receive a discount to the museum gift shop.

Suzy loves how easy CallFire makes sending and receiving texts, and her members love the timeliness and convenience of getting reminders, promotions, and discounts right in their pocket. CallFire works with both long codes and short codes and provides opt in and opt out support, all for just pennies per message. Developers can even use CallFire APIs to program SMS apps of their own.

CallFire's emergency SMS system provides your office with the ability to send group text message alerts instantly, which has increased in importance as emergencies have grown in frequency and scale. It's known that more mobile users pay attention to a text alert or high volume SMS notification than they do an email, which is why any disaster notification or emergency alert service must employ a group text messaging service for their emergency alert system. Plus, you can use CallFire's group text service for reasons other than emergency alerting, such as sending promotions, billing notifications, and general announcements to customers, employees, students, or the general public. Group text alerts enable you to run an effective emergency notification system, marketing campaign, or billing service with the click of a button.
