NMD, the technology firm behind the eMerge™ interactive marketing suite, announced this week the launch of SMS text messaging within the EasyEmerge.com interface. This new functionality complements the already existing email marketing and social media services available within the software, offering users a comprehensive set of interactive marketing services all within one affordable interface.
“With over 1 trillion text message sent per year, eMerge™ offers our more savvy marketers the ability to reach customers immediately,” states eMerge™ VP of Sales and Marketing, Natalie Guess. “Team eMerge™ is working to educate our users on effectively using email, social AND text marketing to maximize exposure and engage their customers. The best part is that it’s never been easier or more affordable to run a comprehensive interactive campaign than with EasyEmerge.com.”
SMS, which stands for short message service, allows users to send and receive text messages through their eMerge™ account. This feature offers a great opportunity for appointment reminders, RSVPing for events, opting in for special offers and providing immediate updates. The service is affordable too. Users must have an active eMerge™ account in order to get started. After a $25 setup charge that includes a telephone number license and 100 FREE credits, users pay $10/month for their telephone number license and pre-purchase SMS credits on an as-needed basis ranging between six cents to four cents per message based on quantity purchased.
Although users cannot select their telephone number, they can select their desired area code within the continental US. The service is currently limited to the continental US only and users must agree to follow the eMerge™ ’spam free’ acceptable use policy in order to use the service. “It’s exciting to be a part of our customer’s business success,” shares Natalie Guess. “This new functionality is just another way that we can help our customers succeed in their marketing endeavors.”
Also launched this week within eMerge is expanded social media management. Users may view and respond to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn posts all within the eMerge™ Desktop Report Monitor that sits on their computer’s task bar. This easy to use report monitor not only allows users to view their latest posts and pending comments / tweets but also to quickly respond and get back to work without having to log into their various social media accounts.
“No other interactive software features this level of functionality,” says CEO, Bondilyn Jolly. “Our goal with developing the desktop monitor was to provide our users a quick and convenient way to manage their latest interactive pushes without the tedious, time-consuming need to log in and out of their different social media channels. The desktop monitor also allows eMerge™ users the ability to view the results of their latest email runs and will shortly encompass SMS / text reports as well. Our goal is to help our users overcome their marketing challenges and succeed at the highest communication level they can.”
