Internet SMS is a rather new phenomenon but its effectiveness has made it very popular in a short space of time. Discussed below are some of the major benefits of using internet SMS which also justify its increasing use.
Internet SMS allows direct interaction
Internet SMS is delivered to the desired persons mobile. Studies show that more than 90% of people who have a mobile phone read an SMS the moment it has been delivered. Thus, unlike any other media, internet SMS allows instant and direct interaction between the sender and the receiver of the internet SMS without causing any disturbance.
Sending Internet SMS is easy and fast
Internet SMS is highly used by commercial organisations for delivering a message to a large number of people at once. Sending internet SMS is very easy and takes little time as the message is required to be written just once.
After the message is written it is sent to the company providing the service of delivering the internet SMS along with the numbers where the message is to be delivered. The rest is taken care of by the service provider. It takes only a few minutes time to write and send internet SMS to a large number of people.
Internet SMS is cost effective and can be used for multiple purposes
Since internet SMS is sent using the web it is much cheaper than sending a mobile SMS. Internet SMS is thus used for promotional and marketing purposes by commercial institutions and also for staying in touch with the staff.
