Text My Deal provide an in-house marketing platform that allows merchants that deal with the public, to communicate with their customer base via SMS text messaging. Text My Deal is a complete end to end service, providing data capture at the front end back office features that allow you to send offers, deals and broadcast messages to one, some or all of your customers.
Text My Deal also incorporates a built in, digital, cardless loyalty scheme to encourage repeat business.
We have also integrated 'Keyword' short code texting as an additional method of data capture. This can be used to attract customers that have yet to use your service. The name of your company would be advertised as a keyword on your website and in social media. Customers are encouraged to text this keyword to a short code number, in return for an incentive, perhaps a discount off their first purchase, or a voucher code. Text my deal will automatically capture their mobile number and send them a bounce back message that includes your incentive.
Mobile numbers can also be directly uploaded onto the platform in different 'lists'. Each list can be selected to receive different messages.
I am a salesman with over 30 years experience. Originally trained by Rank Xerox, I have spent most of that time selling voice and data solutions both nationally and internationally. I started Text My Deal with my business partner in 2013. We came up with the concept, sourced investment, developed the software and launched at The Restaurant Show, Olympia in 2014.
I am married (37 years) and have three children, as well as three grandchildren. I enjoy cycling and have done several long distance rides for charity. The most recent, a London To Paris trip that took three days and 250 miles.
I am passionate about sport and have a season ticket at a London Premiership football club.
