The following list of text messaging companies offer text messaging for businesses and also have reseller and/or private label programs for mobile marketing entrepreneurs who are looking for a vendor to power their SMS business. Listed below are several text message companies that I either personally use or have gone through an in depth tour of their platform.
Text messaging is a country specific service due to the way that messages are sent across cell phone carriers. Start first by choosing the country in which you will be using text messaging. If you don’t see your country listed, check back. More countries will be added to this list.
NOTE ABOUT AUDIO FILES / VENDOR INTERVIEWS:
The audios listed by several of the vendors are recordings of 30-minute interviews done with me, Kim Dushinski, as part of Vendor Week for my mobile marketing training classes. They are specifically designed to help mobile marketing entrepreneurs get matched up with the right reseller or private label program for them.
