Text For Business: Enable My Landline Telephone Number

I remember the first time I received a text message from a client. It surprised me and then I realized how convenient it was for the client to text me if they were in a meeting or on a conference call and they couldn’t take my call. It surprised me even more to realize that my clients had been trying to text me for a while, but I wasn’t getting the messages because before February 2017, my business landline phone number was not text enabled.

We’re living and working in the age of convenience and speed. And usually speed equals convenience. Giving your customers, clients and business contacts the ease of confirming appointments, communicating quick messages, or sharing quick needed information is a convenience your contacts will appreciate.

Everyone has their mobile phone nearby or on their body. Did you know that 98% of people will answer a text message within 15 minutes? People can’t stand to leave a text message unread or unresponded to. And younger customers, clients and business contacts really don’t like to send and receive messages via email. They prefer text.
