Launch a Mobile Marketing Campaign and Save a Puppy
CHICAGO, April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Homeless puppies everywhere depend on the kindness of strangers, and Cellit, a leading provider of text message marketing systems for retailers, restaurants and other businesses has a plan to help. The company today announced that for each small business that signs up for its new Cellit Spark mobile messaging platform, a $150 donation will be made to The Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago, a non-profit providing compassionate care for any animal in need. The donation will provide enough funds to feed and shelter a dog for a week.
Cellit Spark is the latest addition to the Cellit service line, custom-tailored for cost-conscience businesses looking to start engaging their customers via the mobile channel. With a focus on simplicity and value, the service offers many great features including robust campaign targeting using Cellit’s rules-based engine, couponing with point of sale (POS) integration, and real time reporting. With low monthly fees and no long-term contracts, Cellit is opening up mobile marketing to businesses with any sized budget.
“As Bruce Springsteen noted, ‘You can’t start a fire without a spark’,” said David Wachs, President of Cellit. “Major companies are forging ahead with robust mobile marketing capabilities, but until now, a platform as robust as Cellit’s has been out of many companies’ reach. We hope the Cellit Spark program creates that fire, enabling all companies–not just Fortune 500s–the opportunity to engage with their customers via the mobile channel in meaningful ways.”
The “Save a Puppy!” campaign starts April 4th, and runs through the end of the month. Results from the effort will be provided on the Cellit Spark web site.
“Cellit has been fortunate to be on the leading edge of a growing industry, text message marketing, and is flourishing,” continued Wachs. “With the launch of Cellit Spark, we’re hoping to give back and support a worthwhile cause in a very tangible way. We hope that the launch of the ‘Save a Puppy!’ campaign will encourage small businesses to give mobile marketing a try, and save some lives in the process. As Cellit Spark starts at $49 per month, by signing up, customers will be giving up to three times of their monthly charge to a worthwhile cause! We hope people smile at the marketing surrounding our ‘Save a Puppy!’ campaign but see that we’re serious in our commitment to The Anti-Cruelty Society.”
