    If you don't mind divulging, what types of services are you providing and how are you charging?

    I've got a client who I think would be interested in building an sms database. I was thinking of just having them use a shortcode on their next batch of mailers and put a sign in the window. We'll use the list to send deals and promos afte some time.

    ANything else creative people are doing with SMS?

    I use the sms wordpress plugin that comes with appointment reminders. Basically twilio integrated into wordpress.

    Monthly is how you want to go but limit the keywords etc.

    Always charge them based on the value it adds to their business. I run the sms system on my own servers.

    You have this same software on your server? I signed up for the free trial but it seems to be web based on their servers only.
