Product Overview - Download Product Brochure

The future in SMS relationship marketing. Learn about your audience and relate to them. Conduct a poll, send a multiple choice question or a question requiring a free form response. Our automated response feature rewards and encourages participation. Get feedback and/or award prizes. All data is logged and can be downloaded for analysis. You can use up to four custom fields of data. This is cutting edge software made user friendly and easy. The most difficult aspect of textit Interact is knowing what question to ask. We have had plenty of experience helping out with all forms of textit Interact questions - if you want to give it a blast and you're not really sure how to go about it, call 1300 TEXTIT (839848) or flick us an email. We are always happy to help.

It works like this: Plan your question and choose your audience. There is a setup wizard that walks you through the activity. 5 easy steps, and the relevant instructions are on each page. As well as your question, every reply receives an automatic response that you choose. If you are asking a free form question - one which requires a word or number answer (eg. Who won the 2008 AFL Grand Final?) - there is a feature that allows you to approve four correct answers (eg. Hawthorn, Hawks, The Hawks, HFC - they're all correct) and you can have 2 different replies (eg. 1. You are correct, it was Hawthorn... and your brand / marketing message goes here! And 2. Nice try but no cigar, it was Hawthorn. Better luck next time and your brand / marketing message goes here!) By conducting mutually beneficial SMS relationships you will reward your audience and attract new participants.

Many large Advertising and Brand Building businesses already recognise the effectiveness of interactive SMS relationships. Mobilise your database and participate in this proven marketing and communications medium. textit Interact makes conducting SMS relationships with your audience easy.

Textit Interact also includes the textit automatic OptOut feature. All textit Interact lists and responses are recorded in a data management system. You can download your data as a spreadsheet and analyse your head off! You can even include additional data in your list for greater refinement - don't know what I'm talking about?

Automatic OptOut. When sending bulk marketing text messages with textit Interact , you must, by law provide an Opt Out function. All textit products include access to our Automatic Opt Out software. When a recipient replies STOP (not case sensitive), they are dynamically added to your account's Opt Out list. Subsequent messages sent to that number will not be delivered unless/until the number is manually removed from your Opt Out list.

Our technology. We have developed our software specifically for business use. Our charter is that our products are user friendly, intuitive, business focused and facilitate improved workflow. We use SMPP for a faster, more reliable SMS carriage. We use SMPP because it's the bees' knees.

Message Schedule. With textit Interact you can choose the hour/date your message is sent. You don't have to be sitting at your computer to send your message - consider your audience and act appropriately.

Bulk Threshold Validation Code. If you are sending bulk messages with textit Interact, you can have a bulk validation set. This means that for peace of mind, you can request that campaign sends over a nominated number of recipients require the addition of a code (like a password) to be scheduled or sent. The code comes as a text message to a nominated mobile handset. The text with validation code is automatically and immediately fired as the message is being set up. The easy to use setup wizard will ask for the validation code before the message can be sent or scheduled. It's automatic, immediate and easy.

  Why SMS?
"Australia has one of the highest uptake of text messaging in the world, however few companies have established the ability for consumers to communicate with them via SMS. This is despite a recent Frost and Sullivan report indicating that 85% of Australians under 35 quoted SMS as their preferred communication channel."
So said Philip Jones, Executive Director, Data/IP and Enterprise Services, Telstra Product Management.
