Having a txtUs© mobile number for your business allows people to reply to the messages that you send them. Customers can also text you directly.
All incoming texts are sent to you via email as well as being stored in your account. So that you can keep track of what’s been sent and received, the full thread of the conversation is stored.

We offer 2 main types of keywords. Value keywords start with a number (e.g 2book) and cost just £5 a month. Standard keywords are any word that you wish and cost £25.00 per month
What is Incoming SMS Marketing?
This is simply a term used to describe using a text reply number - either a Shortcode (e.g. 88802) or Long Code (a normal 07xxx xxxxxx number) - to receive text messages from customers or enquirers. Case studies have demonstrated that having a text response option on advertising substantially increases overall response rates.
Short Code SMS
For all direct response advertising campaigns there is a strong argument for including an incoming SMS response option. This is increasingly becoming more mainstream as companies realise that they can generate more response and subsequent sales from their advertising by using this simple tool. If you include an SMS response option on your advertising you can expect uplift in response of around 15%.
Virtual Reply Number
if you have just sent someone a text then it makes perfect sense for them to be able to reply it. Most people are unlikely to immediately pick up the phone or go online. So having an incoming SMS reply number is the most logical way of asking people to respond.
