Hi All, We've been using the Essential Visuals now for a few weeks, and wondered how everyone else was handling the subscription service. We initially thought that the only way to go was to give the users the option to subscribe to our mailing list, and even offered an incentive of a monthly prize draw for subscribers. While we were getting loads of people texting to the system, none were subscribing to the service. Last weekend we started a new database, and are informing users that they can opt out of receiving text messages from us in the future by texting STOP. Our first bulk message went out earlier today to everyone who hasn't unsubscribed, and so far there have been no problems. We'd be interested to see what everyone else's views on this are, and what levels of success you've had with the subscription service. Gareth.
