Why Do You Need Texting Options?
Today, I’ll show you two quick ways to integrate texting more easily into your life. It seems nerdy or teen-ager-y but I assure you it’s helpful because there are clients who prefer to communicate via text and we’re all conditioned to reach out to our clients in their chosen mode, right?
People Can Text YOU From YOUR Blog
I know, this week, we’re talking like we’re the Jetsons Family, but this is super easy. So you go to the RETech SMS Widget page, enter your phone number, email, and tell it what website the widget will be on and voila, an embed code is provided for you! Now all you have to do embed it in your sidebar and hooray, people can text your cell phone directly from your blog, talk about instant contact with consumers! PS: standard text messaging rates apply to your phone, so I’d pony up and just go unlimited (says the lady who already has unlimited text messaging).
Free Texting From Your iPhone
You may have a fancy iPhone, but you may not have chosen a good plan that allows you texting, so add the widget we just talked about and then go download iPhone app Yahoo oneConnect (which does tons of stuff but we’re focusing on the SMS possibilities today). Once downloaded, if you have your Yahoo address book full of phone numbers, you can text them with a quick click by using a wifi connection instead of your precious text messages.
Now You’re A Texting Diva or Don
Now, people can text you from your own website and if you’re an iPhone+Yahoo user, you can text without even dwindling down your potentially limited text messages. What texting options are you implementing in your practice? There are tons of them, so let us have it!
