Text service Textlocal promotes business of all sizes

JUNK mail has been made a thing of the past by a business operating from Chester Business Park.

Textlocal send out text messages to mobile phones up and down the country, on behalf of businesses ranging from Manchester United to Carden Park Hotel.

Managing director, Darren Daws, 40, of Arradon Court, Upton, joined forces with Alastair Shortland to form the business in 2006.

Last year, they opened only their second office nationally in Chester, to tap into the burgeoning interest from businesses in the North West.

Mr Daws moved to Chester after deciding to expand the business from its original site in Malvern.

He said: “We are committed to delivering exceptional customer service and strive to help all businesses achieve their marketing and communication goals.”

Textlocal now works with more than 40,000 UK businesses and locally they work with Chester Health and Fitness gym at Chester West Employment Park, Carden Park Hotel and Oliver & Co solicitors.

CES UK Ltd, Prodo, Belvoire Lettings, Crest Plus Operations and Spectrum Financial Services are among the others the company promotes.

Nationally, Textlocal send text messages for heavyweights such as Google, Manchester United, Myspace, Confused.com, Shell, Domino’s and Ladbrokes.

The bosses at Textlocal are keen to bring their service to businesses, clubs and individuals large and small and enable them to send text messages to groups of people within minutes.

They make it possible for any size of business to do this quickly, easily and cheaply with no set-up fees, monthly fees or commitment.
