Cell Phone & SMS Database
What types of technology will eventually become mainstays can be very hard to predict. Few imagined, for example, that the invention of the automobile would subsequently result in roadways being built in every country, crossing from one coast to the other, just to accommodate motor vehicles. In the same way, with the advent of affordable personal computers, very few predicted that shrinking those computers down to handheld size, and calling them “smartphones” would cause them to become the most ubiquitous high tech devices on the planet, with one giving a thought to upgrading them every three to four years, when cars regularly take a decade or so before they are replaced.
The cellular phone, or smartphone, has become a standard or even more common a sight in the general public than even cars. You don’t need a license to own and operate a cellular phone, and the usefulness of the device, when paired with its communication and computational abilities, makes it too convenient not to bring along. This portability, combined with communication, means the majority of Americans own one. If you’d like to reach them through this device, Wall Street Lead Machine can help.
How Wall Street Lead Machine Got Its Start
Wall Street Lead Machine is a proudly American owned and operated business. The company owes its beginnings to the dreams of one disabled veteran. After completing his duties in the military to protect the country, he decided it was time to develop its economy, by helping the businesses to grow. This ambition began in the hometown of New York, NY, assisting enterprises to there to reach the customers and clientele across different interests and demographics. Thanks to a commitment to quality results, the business grew and now plays host to staff with a combined total experience of over 50 years in the marketing industry.
Wall Street Lead Machine entered the business world before it had embraced the digital world. Direct mail and telemarketing were still some of the dominant forms of marketing at that time, as well as traditional media like print, radio, and television advertising. From direct mail, Wall Street Lead Machine took home some of the fundamental techniques that would play a key role in database management and analytics, concepts that would become increasingly important as the world transitioned to digital.
Today, Wall Street Lead Machine has broadened both the scope of its services as well as the scale. It is now the entire continental United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, that the company serves. The entirety of North America is also available for lists and leads, including both Mexico and Canada. There are even international services available with countries like France, across the Atlantic, as possible international sources of lists and leads. And all of them have significant reliance on cellular numbers and SMS communication in the 21st century.
The New Way To Communicate
With the rise of the cellular phone, new ways to communicate came along with it. Of course, most people expected that with a portable telephone that people could fit in a pocket, phone calls would be one of the primary uses for this technology. To the surprise of many, however, text messages, formally known as the Short Messaging System, or SMS, for short, rose to prominence.
SMS is, for all intents and purposes, email directed to a specific phone number, rather than an email address. It is ideal for short text messages, and quickly grew to become a popular method of cellular communication because it was “asynchronous.” In other words, just like email, the message could be preserved, referred to, and responded to any time, unlike a telephone call which required an immediate response else went into voice mail.
SMS became a common form of communication eventually became a useful tool for marketing and promotion as well. The reasons for this are numerous, including:
- Over 90% of text messages sent are read
- 80% of the general public keeps their phones accessible at all times
- In a survey, 39% of respondents (76 million) indicated a preference for SMS
- The younger demographic of 18-29 years use SMS more than phone calls
This rapid growth in the popularity of SMS communication presents new opportunities for marketing and promotion. However, to take advantage of its potential, businesses need access to the phone numbers themselves.
