High School News Via SMS Mobile
Deal Text (http://dealtext.net) is offering schools all over the U.S.A. the ability to communicate with students, parents and faculty via SMS text messages.
According to Russell Checchin, owner of Deal Text: "I think texting information about school closings; teacher meetings and conferences; as well as sports and fund raising events is a fantastic way for schools to reach students, teachers and parents and keep them informed about school functions.”
He went on to say: "school closings is a big concern for parents, and they have to listen to the radio, watch TV or go online to find out if their child’s school is closed due to weather. I think parents would jump at the opportunity to get school news via text message. I remember when I was in school, we would get announcements about sporting events over the P.A. system to encourage students to come support their team, this can now be done via text message, and at a time set by the administrator, an example would be 2 hrs before the game to remind everyone just before the game starts.”
Deal Text is a text marketing company located near Duluth, MN. and offers schools a web interface where they can write their message and send it out to all, or selected subscribers with one click of a mouse.
With tight school budgets in mind, they have SMS plans as low as $39 a month for 1 keyword and up to 100 subscribers, to learn more about Deal Text visit their website for other SMS plans and options.
