westminster-council-sms-serviceWestminster Council is using text alerts to keep the public informed about a range of free and low cost events taking place throughout the year.

Subscribers to the SMS service receive regular text alerts to remind them about all the events aimed at young residents in the area.
“Find out what’s on during the school holidays for children and young people aged 0 – 19. With hundreds of FREE and low-cost events, activities and venues we hope you agree that Westminster is a great place to grow up.”

Text Marketer chosen as SMS service provider.

Text Marketer has been selected as the bulk SMS company to provide the technology to enable the sending of the SMS campaigns; their  Marketing Director, Richard Hawley said:
“We have been actively working with many more local councils in recent months and we are delighted to be adding Westminster to our selection of clients.”

SMS alerts for events are far more effective than any other communication channel. 98% of text messages that are sent are read, compared to open rates for e-mail of typically less than 20%. (source – Mobile Marketing Association)

Sending sms campaigns using Text Marketer’s web-based system is very quick and easy. Users do not need any specific technical skills and accounts are free to set up.
