A history of Textlocal and how we became the UK’s number one mobile messaging service

This is an update to our previous post Text service Textlocal promotes business of all sizes

Textlocal started out life as a small mobile messaging platform, with the aim of empowering SMEs around the country to boost their businesses through text messaging. As interest in SMS has grown, so has our platform, with innovation at the heart of the company’s ethos.

With competitors focussing on big businesses, at Textlocal we aim to inspire companies of all sizes to make text messaging a staple part of their communications. As an easy to use, inexpensive and highly effective marketing channel, mobile messaging is ideal for any sector, and we’ve been championing it since 2005.

Since then we’ve seen astronomic growth, due both to our market leading platform and our customer focused attitude. Every member of staff is trained to put the customer first, while being seasoned experts in creating successful mobile marketing campaigns – so even the smallest of businesses can benefit from expert advice.

Our second office, in Chester, opened in 2009, and as you can see from this 2010 article from the Chester Chronicle our company ethos and aims haven’t changed. Regardless of your budget or your send volume, our dedicated staff will work with you to make sure that SMS works for you. From big names such as Britvic, Boohoo, La Tasca and Greenpeace to independent traders and local chip shops we are here to help your business thrive.
