In today’s modern world, everything is becoming virtual and, as a result, easier. SMS can therefore be defined as virtual communication. This is a popular form of sending messages to people without actually talking to them face to face.
This form of communication became possible with the invention of mobile phones. Nowadays, it is possible to send SMS not only from a mobile to a mobile, but also from an email address to a mobile phone number. This is known as email to SMS or sometimes internet SMS.
There are many websites that allow you to send online text messages to a mobile phone using any popular email client. All you need to do is register with at the site by creating an email-id and paying a minimal amount as fixed by the site. Once you are registered, you send text messages to any number of recipients, all at once.
This makes the whole process cheaper as well as quicker than using your mobile phone. Email to SMS can also be used as an efficient marketing strategy as you can personalise your messages and send them to prospective customers or even existing ones.
Many companies use this process for publicising their products. Many also offer various promotions through internet SMS. All this is done very efficiently as you can send bulk messages and at very low rates. Internet SMS is perfect for developing businesses and even developed ones to gain a strong hold in the market.
