Before you take out a loan with a bank or purchase a new television, what do you do?

I think it’s safe to say that most of you will do some element of research or ‘shop around’ before acting. As consumers, we like to know that we’re getting the best deal. Google’s research on ‘micro-moments’ also reiterates these same consumer habits, with reports stating that 82% of smartphone users turn to their phone before making a purchase.

That’s why, whether you’re considering sending your first SMS online, or just browsing the internet for a better deal from business text messaging providers, it might be wise to consider these 6 points before you commit…

Just recently, Andy Griffin, a user of ours left this stellar piece of feedback about the support he received:

“Simple, quick, effective. Connected with Seb on LinkedIn, he took the time out the ring me and talk me through Textlocal. I thought I’d give it a try for our company. It’s great to be perfectly honest. Seb walked me through the website and made things clear and easy. I purchased 500 credits and have been sending texts out weekly. Can’t complain.”

And if that wasn’t enough support, you can also access exclusive daily #SMSTips via Twitter, relevant content on our blog page and systematic guides on our Knowledge Base.
