ST. GEORGE, Utah, Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Text message marketing has quickly become one of the most efficient and effective forms of marketing for businesses worldwide. Recent SMS marketing statistics indicate that between 90-95% (depending on which report is consulted) of recipients will read the text message within 5 minutes of receiving it. There is no other means of marketing in which a business can reach such a large percentage of their customer base within five minutes. Text marketing, also known as SMS (short message service) marketing is 100% opt-in based, meaning every phone number has to give explicit permission prior to any company sending a text message. As part of the deal, opt-out instructions are clear and concise and should be included on every message: "Stop to cancel". These guidelines apply to any company using a short code. A recipient need only reply with the word stop to any mobile marketing message to be immediately removed from a list and stop all further text message communication from that specific company.
