Ranked 4th for Best Text Message Voting Service
84444 was ranked as the fourth best site for text message voting according the article. We are quite proud that we received a 10 out of 10 for service! The site was certainly impressed by the fact that there are real human beings behind the site. Live Text Chat is provided on both the US and Canadian sites. And, it’s not just one Live Chat, but two–you can speak with either technical support or sales!
The area where 84444 did not fare as well was with poll features, but we’re not sure that Top Ten Reviews totally understood our system. Top Ten Reviews stated that you can’t see your results in real time. That’s not really true. You can refresh the page at any time to see real time results. And, if you don’t want to refresh, the site does it automatically for you every 15 seconds.
Nevertheless, we are very pleased to have been named one of the Top Ten text message voting sites in the country. Thanks Top Ten Reviews!
It doesn’t matter if you have a great text message marketing site like 84444 if you don’t ever advertise it. If you can’t find the time to do the creative and signage for your business, don’t worry: we’ll do it for you.
K and J Pizza said they needed signage to promote their text message marketing program so we delivered it for them. We had already done their mobile website so, no problem.
That was easy!

What you Need to Do
The new TCPA laws that were passed by the FCC in 2012 will take effect on October 16, 2013. There are significant changes that will effect your text message marketing and 84444.com urges you to be knowledgeable about those changes to avoid any potential problems.
Please watch this attorney’s video for more information that will help to explain these laws.
The average email user receives 416 promotional emails per month, according to a new study published by Marketing Charts.
It makes you wonder why anybody would spend a significant amount of money on email, doesn’t it. At least when text message marketing has a 97% open rate (New York Times) within 15 minutes of receipt of the text message, even promotional ones!
Remember when people thought hitting a voice mailbox was annoying. “I’d never leave a message on one of those recorders!” Today, if you phone somebody and can’t leave a message, it is unbelievably annoying.
How much longer until everybody wants to receive your text message alerts? The trend of consumers wanting to receiving text message marketing from your brand or company is clearly on the rise.
Are you doing email marketing? We certainly understand why you would be. When done right, email is a very powerful promotional medium.
A question many of us have is: when is the best time to send my emails? It appears to be midnight, according to this study by Mailer Mailer.
If you do email marketing, I urge you to take a look at this study, especially the overall open rates for email marketing which came in at 10% according to the report. There’s also an interesting study on open rates by industry with manufacturing showing the highest rates (guess they don’t get too many).
The bottom line is that while email marketing is a very effective promotional medium, it’s open rates are miniscule compared to the 97% open rate for text message marketing.
