As the country welcomes a new year, we’re welcoming a new brand name; TextAnywhere.
To help you understand what these brand changes will look like and how they’ll impact your business, we’ve put together a short video. This should hopefully help you to visualise the changes to get a better understanding of the journey ahead.
As illustrated above, everything that made Green Text great is remaining: products, platform, communication channels and our focus on looking after our planet.
I have questions, can I talk to someone about these changes?
Yes definitely. We are running an online Q&A session on Tuesday 28th January 2020 at 10:30am. This is an opportunity to hear directly from us about the changes happening, what this means for your business and of course, an opportunity for you to ask questions.…
As you might be aware, Green Text started life as the little brother of our main SMS company; TextAnywhere. With a focus on being greener, we were proud to be able to offer our services to the UK business market, while also supporting the environment.
However, as time progressed, it no longer seemed to make sense to have just one green brand. So, we have decided to merge the two brands and ensure that our entire company is working towards a better world for future generations. Over the coming weeks you’ll begin to see our umbrella brand name, TextAnywhere, appear more on our communications and platform.

After a month, however, it’s common for there to be a huge drop out rate and customers stop returning. On average 1/6 of our day is spent on our mobile phone, with the average person taking 90 seconds to respond to a text message – making SMS the perfect solution for this. There are various ways in which communicating with your customers via text message can benefit your business.
