Worcester, September 21, 2005 — Leading SMS marketing company ( today announced a landmark new “pocket marketing” service for all UK businesses – large or small. Any businesses, local service or community group can obtain a totally free mobile number and keyword to publish on their stationary to enable rapid collection of opt-in customers eager to hear about news and promotions.

TxtLocal enables businesses to send text messages to their customers at a fraction of the cost of other marketing methods. “We offer a unique, highly effective and ultra low cost customer contact solution – the majority of our users report a 40% response to promotions and a 200% increase in sales.

TxtLocal offers any UK business, large and small, the ability to quickly and inexpensively harness the power of SMS marketing in their day-to-day operations. Our new offer of a free mobile number and keyword will make the collection of opt-in customer mobile numbers a breeze.”
