Connect is Local Text Marketers' two-way SMS / text message service designed for inbound customer service and outbound communication and support. It allows you and your business' or organization's team members to engage in quick and efficient two-way conversations with your customers and contacts via simple text messages without using your personal mobile devices.
No need to maintain multiple office cell phone subscriptions or share personal data with contacts... Connect allows you and your business or organization's team members to connect directly with contacts through a simple, easy to use cloud-based interface.
Because that's how many people prefer to be contacted. Text messages are convenient, non-intrusive and take only seconds to "digest."
And, for people without "landlines" or expensive "talk and data" packages on their cell phones, text messaging may be the only way for you to "connect" with them.
Text messaging is a comfortable, affordable and familiar technology that over 90% of your contacts and clients are using regularly.
Even if you happen to be the rare person who's comfortable with sharing your personal cell phone number with your contacts and clients, it's very likely your employees and other members of your organization are not.
CONNECT provides an affordable, scalable, and easily manageable way for ALL of your staff to connect with your audience via simple text messages, without having to use their own phones and surrender their personal private data.
It also means you don't have to have multiple cell phone subscriptions maintained soley for the purpose of business texting.
In addition, the CONNECT administrator can manage and monitor all your employee's text message communications from a single location.
Connect is ideally suited for anyone who wants to communicate via text message while protecting personal privacy...
CONNECT is an online service that sends text messages over the mobile carrier networks (i.e., Bell, Telus, Virgin, AT&T, etc.), much like you do when you send a text message with your cell phone.

Very. If there's one thing our early testers commented on over and over again, it was how simple and easy it is to use.

We recommend signing up for the free trial as your next step (there's no credit card required and no one will call and pester you. Here's where you can sign up!). Their's really no better way to learn more than to jump in and get your feet wet with the service.
Our entry level account allows for 6 users (one of whom will double as the account administrator), but can be upgraded to include as many users as you like.
Yes. By default, your users/agents can choose to either delete or archive conversations (you can choose not to allow them the option to delete conversations, if you like). Archived conversations are removed from the current discussion, but are always available for review in the Archives if/when you need.
We do not use inferior email to text services. All messages sent from Connect are sent via the mobile carrier networks using the SMPP protocol and arrive on your contacts' and clients' phones as simple text messages (they do not need to install any software to receive messages from our service).
P.S.: If you have further questions, by all means call us (at 877 403 2402) or send us a quick email. We'll be happy to address them for you!
The best way to demonstrate our confidence in our service is to let you try it out for yourself. Kick the tires a bit. And no... you won't need a credit card. No pesky sales reps will be calling. Just you, and 30 uninterrupted days to test the service.
And if ours isn't right for yours, well, that's totally OK. We just much rather have the chance to earn your business than to miss out on it altogether. And at the end of the day, there's only way to find out whether it's right for your business or not... and that's to try it out for yourself.
