Target Local Customers with TXTio.com Mobile Text Marketing
My good friend Eugene Belenky, has let me know that he is launching a new service to help small business market to local customers. It is called TXTio.com. Another good friend, Andrew Shotland commented on TXTio a little while back and I too was able to try it out some. Overall it looks to be a really useful tool for small businesses.
I asked Eugene for some highlights of the new service.
