Text Message Marketing (or SMS Marketing) is a form of permission marketing that takes advantage of the ubiquity of mobile devices and the prevalence of texting as a form of communication. It has proven hugely successful in marketing and business, therefore why not implement it when alerting the public of safety issues and important public announcements and notifications. For example:-
- Weather – snow, black ice, roads closed due to flooding etc
- Road Accidents
- Electricity outages
- Reminder to vote
How expensive is it to dispatch a notification to every household in the country or even throughout a county? How much administration time is expended? How effective is postal communication?
