Mobile messaging for takeaways

How to increase orders with text messaging

Text messaging has really found its place in the fast food industry, proving it's a quick, targeted and powerful tool to generate repeat orders at takeaways and fast food outlets.

On the most basic level, targeted SMS messaging allows takeaway and fast food businesses to distribute their most up to date menus to eager customers, through the use of Textlocal's attachment functionality. Following from that, it's also extremely easy for businesses to design and distribute special offers and promotions through SMS messaging specific to business needs.

The high open rate of SMS messages allows businesses to be confident of high uptake, while the ease with which personalised promotional codes can be included within SMS messages makes these deals very easy for consumers to redeem.

In this way text communication can strengthen a takeaway's brand, by rewarding loyal customers and keeping the public at large informed of their services in an affordable and effective manner.

Best Service

Text Local has a big hand in the increase of sales in my business. As in terms of their speed, you cant challenge them. They are SuperFast in delivering message on your customers phones. I have been using them from nearly 2 years now and had never any sort of problem using their friendly website. There business managers always take your feedback seriously and try to resolve the problems as quickly as possible. As far as their MMS service is concerned I dont think any other company is even near to the quality of service they provide. All I can say is they have worked hard to be on top of this messaging business and they definately without a doubt deserve this position. Good Luck to them and trust them and they wont disappoint you. Cheers
