Yesterday we announced that we are rolling out a new SMS text messaging service. About an hour after publishing that post we received an email with some interesting figures in it. Whilst we’re still trying to verify the source of these statistics, it certainly highlights the value of SMS and matches out findings in our trial campaigns.

98% of text messages are read; compared to just 12% on facebook and 20% of email.
