09/03/2018 Tracking Animals with SMS

Oftentimes, we think of the conservation of the old as incongruous with the use of newer technology like mobile devices. This is far from the case; in fact, GPS technology is being combined with text messaging to track both wildlife and livestock, a useful tool to keep an eye on both the farm animals we depend on and the increasing number of endangered or threatened species.

One device conservationalists are using to keep tabs on wildlife is cellular GPS collars. Cellular collars are affixed to animals, which then use GPS to calculate the animal's coordinates. This information is relayed to researchers via SMS. The frequency of text message updates can be controlled by the researchers. When an animal wearing a collar moves out of cellular range, a beacon transmitter is automatically activated, using radio tracking to monitor the animal's location.

Good customer service is adaptable, responding to customers' needs as they develop and change.

07/22/2018 A quick guide to SMS marketing for small businesses

SMS messages are a bit like Tweets. It is hard to be ambiguous when composing an SMS message, as you don’t have space to wax lyrical or go off-topic. The nature of an SMS message means you have to stick to the point, which is helpful because customers don’t have time to read long messages.

In a time-poor society, people prefer pithy, to-the-point marketing messages. It takes a few seconds to read an SMS message and decide whether to respond to the message or ignore it. Because SMS messages are effective, click-through rates are much higher than email messages. This makes SMS marketing a good strategy for small businesses.
