Twilio sms in the UK is now live! I've been using Twilio sms since last November, and in December of last year I worked with 2 JV partners to launch some Twilio SMS software which is very easy for businesses to use.
This is great news for small businesses who want to use sms lead generation & other sms marketing strategies, but up to now the costs have been prohibitive: Twilio is charging 4cents per message, and you can rent a number for just $1/month.
Twilio has been called a disruptive technology by many, and although it's not the only kid on the block (its competitors include Tropo, Nexmo, Trumpia and a host of others), it's one of the few companies who I believe have enough zeal, investor backing, and vision to push forward sms & IVR-based telephony services for Small to medium sized companies.
Twilio is no small fry though, and its infrastructure is designed to be robust enough to meet the demands of the Big Boys.
Although the main front-end focus of the company is sms and voice communication, Twilio offers a very comprehensive call distribution with an Interactive Voice Response capability – so that any business can get access to these services.
So what does that mean for your business?
You now have access to cost-effective sms customer followup and sms marketing tools in your hands at a very affordible price point.
If you want to know how this works in practice, watch this video below which gives you an example of the sort of thing you can do with Twilio and sms lead generation (this is just the tip of the iceberg with what's possible with Twilio):
Lastly, as I mentioned at the beginning of the article, I have been working some excellent people to bring to market a very cost-effective sms platform for local businesses here in the UK. The video below was produced a while ago, and the web-based sms software we are now using has developed since it was made:
