Press Release: “Text Friendly Boulder Business” Campaign

Posted by TextUs Team on Oct 21, 2012 8:09:22 AM
(Boulder, CO)- Boulder based TextUs.Biz has launched a new service that enables local businesses to use their existing business phone number/landline to send and receive text messages to and from their customers, from a computer. In an effort to make Boulder, CO the first “Text Friendly” business community on the planet, this service is currently available exclusively to Boulder based businesses. As an added bonus, TextUs.Biz is inviting up to one hundred Boulder businesses to use the service for FREE for three months, as part of its “Text Friendly Boulder Business” campaign.
This new first of its kind customer service tool encourages businesses and their customers to text message their inquiries and questions rather than make a phone call. “TextUs.Biz is what many customers and businesses have been waiting for,” says Ted Guggenheim, President of TextUs.Biz. “By using our two-way text message application, both businesses and customers can avoid leaving voicemails, being placed on hold, or missing calls.”TextUs.Biz is perfect for all types of local businesses including salons, hotels, restaurants, auto services, massage therapists, doctors, dentists, and retailers. TextUs.Biz is convenient for customers as it allows people to make inquiries in the method they most prefer: text messaging.

For local companies, becoming a “Text Friendly” business is simple and easy. Just visit TextUs.Biz/Boulder and request an invitation. Participating businesses in the “Text Friendly Boulder Business” launch will receive:

  • Three FREE months of the TextUs.Biz service (beginning Oct 2012)
  • Perpetual Charter Member pricing at $9.99 per month (beginning January 2013). Non-Charter pricing begins at $24.95/month. (Note: there is no obligation to enroll after FREE three-month trial period.)
  • Online or In-person Tutorial.
  • “Text Us – We’re Text Friendly” Removable Window Decals.
  • 100 “We’re a Text Friendly Boulder Business” Customer Cards.
  • Business logo placement on the Text Friendly Boulder website and display advertising.

Several local companies are already using TextUs.Biz’s texting service including The Side Door Salon, ABC Kids Climbing, West End Salon, and Swedish Motors. Says Connor Doyle, owner of West End Salon, “TextUs.Biz is the most impactful service we’ve used in a long time. Rather than make dozens of phone calls for daily appointment reminders, we simply text them.” He adds, “Most importantly, our customers have a way to reach us in a manner that is most convenient for them.”
