- Over 95% of SMS messages are opened as compared to 10-20% open rate for email.

Your mobile keyword could be PIZZA / JOHNNY / SHACK (upper or lower case does not matter).
When a customer texts the mobile keyword PIZZA to a 5-digit short code number (which in the case of GalaxyText is 77223), they receive an automatic text message (you specify the content) AND they get added to a list that you specify. This allows you to create different offers for different lists. For example, if a customer texts PIZZA to 77223, the customer will immediately receive an automated text response (that you can setup and change at anytime) with information about general physical therapy and get added to one list.
Another customer texts JOHNNY to 77223, the customer will immediately receive an automated text response (that you can setup and change at anytime) with information about your restaurant or whats on your menu. This allows you to create segmented lists and send personalized, relevant messages to your audience. You can setup a different automated response with each mobile keyword.
Any GalaxyText user can immediately create a mobile keyword as long as it’s not already taken by another user (much like owning an internet website name). For this reason, you want to secure your mobile keywords as quickly as possible, before your competitor does. Please note that the keywords are not case-sensitive. After texting the keyword you’ll receive an automated response right back! Unlike traditional email subscriptions, mobile keyword subscriptions are controlled by the end users, your patients. People can subscribe and unsubscribe any time they want. The new emerging mobile culture makes mobile marketing (with keywords) an exciting new frontier with possibilities that exceed regular mail, email marketing and other traditional marketing channels resulting in an over 90% open rate (email averages are only 15-20%) and over 25% response rate.
