My 70-year-old mother started texting before I did. This probably sounds strange given that I am the tech geek in the family and “Web” is my middle name, but I just really was not all that hyped about the trend. I think it was because I am always being pinged by someone or something (email, phone, kids, doorbell, etc). Did I really need “instant” messages tapping me on the shoulder all day? Not really, but I caved.

Truth be told, I love it! Texting (aka SMS) allows me to quickly and easily get informed about what matters to me, from a person or company that matters to me. Plus, I carry my Blackberry everywhere I go, so I never skip a beat on what is happening in the world I care about.

As it turns out, I am just like 90 percent of the U.S. population who have welcomed SMS messaging into their lives by opting in to receive messages morning, noon and night. The reach achieved in mobile messaging is amazing, which presents a serious opportunity for you to grow your customer base and increase sales.
