UK-Disco Launches SMS Notification Service
21 August 2005
The Early Bird Catches The Worm!
- Receive instant notification of enquiries
- Mailbox full? Never miss another enquiry
- Paying advertiser? You have 1 FREE credit!
Have you ever followed-up an enquiry, only to find the client booked
a competitor because they responded quicker than you?
Most people will seek quotes from several companies at the same
time. Although price can influence a decision, so does the efficiency
and timely response to enquiries.
With the new UK-Disco SMS notification service, you'll be instantly
informed the moment a client places an enquiry through the web site,
allowing you to contact the customer within minutes of them sending
it. Never miss an enquiry and catch client while the event is on
their mind - THE BEST TIME TO SECURE THE BOOKING!
If your e-mail account has a tendency to go 'over quota', it's
possible you might miss out on an enquiry. An SMS reminder is the
perfect backup and will ensure you have all the information necessary.
What information does the SMS contain?
SMS sender is 'UK-Disco'.
The message contains the client's telephone number (if supplied),
otherwise their e-mail address, followed by their name. The remainder
of the 160 character limit contains as much of the client's enquiry
How do I start receiving SMS notifications?
Log in to your UK-Disco account - you'll see a new section in your
admin menu. Click 'Buy Credits' to set-up your account.
How much does this cost?
Depending on the number of credits you purchase, SMS notification
costs as little as 25p per message (+ VAT). The smallest credit
option costs just £3.50, giving you 10 SMS credits.
ALL paid advertisers have received 1 free credit as a trial. Simply
log-in to your account and switch on the service.
In my last e-mail, I told you about the change to the enquiry forms...
Clients who make enquiries to advertisers who've not chosen a membership
level have the OPTION to make their enquiry 'public' to paying subscribers.
The new SMS service also allows paying advertisers (Silver members
and above) to receive these 3rd party notifications straight away.
With this option enabled, you'll get to know about enquiries the
moment they're made.
