Reach out to numerous people quickly and all at once

Since our football club was introduced to Textlocal, we haven't looked back. Running a football club is busy business and telling a vast number of people the same thing can be quite a task! With Textlocal I am able to draft a succinct email with the desired message and just send, it's that easy. The Textlocal website itself allows me to check our account details (credits remaining), top-up credit (a selection of amounts), update/copy parts of contact lists and check message delivery and you have an account handler to assist with any needs. A Brilliant service, what more can one ask for?!
