What is Text to Landline?

Text to landline is simply the enabling of text messaging on a landline phone number so that it can be used for 2-way messaging and mass texting. In addition to existing landlines, new local and toll free numbers can be secured for text messaging as well.

Setting up your landline to send and receive texts allows you to engage with people that may not want to pick up the phone to call, but still need to communicate with you. If your current number doesn't support text to landline, it's likely that you're missing the text messages that people are trying to send you.

How Landline Texting Works

Enabling a landline for texting is really simple. Phone numbers support 2 thingsā€¦ voice and text. All landlines are voice-enabled however most don't do anything with their ability to send or receive text messages. Because voice and text are 2 completely separate functions, they work independently from each other. This allows us to handle your business text messaging while the phone company handles the voice.

Getting your landline set up to send and receive text messages is a painless process that is handled entirely by us. It can take up to two weeks to have the number up and running. Simply follow the instructions outlined in your account and the rest is on us. Once set up, all of your text messages and two-way conversations can be managed by our easy-to-use dashboard. From there you'll be able to see who's texting you and respond back. You can even use our mobile app for managing your messages on the go.

Additionally, our text messaging interface just scratches the surface of what you'll have access to. SlickText is the industry leading SMS marketing service that offers the most powerful tools and automated text messaging features necessary to grow your business.

Why All Landlines Should Support Text Messaging

With text messaging becoming one of the most popular methods for communication today, it's kind of a no-brainer why your landline should definitely be text-enabled. Here are just a few reasons to make it even more clear.

Your Customers Want It

Statistics on text messaging show that 85% of customers prefer to receive text messages over a phone call or email when needing to be reached by a business. That number is huge and it makes sense. As the younger generation of millenials become a larger part of your customer base, they are not going to want to call you. They won't want you calling them. They'll want to handle things via SMS. Having a lack of text to landline support means you won't be ready to connect with your customers on their terms.
