Swim UK operates the largest programme of Swimming Teaching (ASA), Lifeguard (RLSS) and leisure industry related courses in the UK.
They have recently launched an SMS program that keeps students up to date with all the latest developments, including new course availability and course reminders. Using Text Marketer’s web based SMS platform Message Box, they can quickly and easily set up groups containing different types of student, depending on the course they’re on or might be interested in.
Although a standard text message contains 160 characters, MessageBox allows you to send a text of up to 612 characters. More credits are used for long messages but often it’s better to send a longer message if it can’t sensibly be edited below 160.
** CONFIRMATION OF COURSE WITH SWIM UK ** We have you booked on Functional Skills English LEVEL 1 tomorrow 29th June at SWIM HOUSE Portslade , Gordon Mews, Unit 2 – BN41 1HU . Please be there for 9am sharp to start – your tutor is Curt. Any problems call us on 01273 434400 before 5pm today. Thanks SWIM UK
The message above for example uses 2 text credits but there is simply too much information to get across in just 160 characters.
Swim Uk’s SMS program is aimed at getting information to course participants in the quickest and most convenient way. While email is a free option, the open rates are so low that you can be confident that only the minority of people will read it. An SMS program ensures that over 98% of the messages sent will be read.
MessageBox accounts are free to set up and all customers receive free text credits for testing. It’s a simple pay as you go service and there are no set up or nasty hidden fees. When you buy text credits, they don’t expire, so you have as long as you like to use them.
Set up a free MessageBox account and get your company’s SMS program underway.
