Default TEXT Bux

One of my entroopreneurial ventures was to create a Flyer that was placed on Pizza boxes and stuck to the top of the Delivery Box when delivered of handed out to customers. This Flyer had a space in the middle for a special deal on Pizzas and Ads of local biz were around the edges.....

Well...after noon today i stopped in at the pizza biz that I had use my Flyers and the owner was there and he told me that BOTH....Take-Out and Delivery were way UP this "Holy Week" I was watching one of his helpers stack the delivery boxes ...and remove a box...insert a pizza and hand it to a customer...who went out the door...and....while he was walking away...his phone rang ....he stopped....took the phone off his belt and started talking.

This scene caused me to think...what if there was a way to contact that customer...on his phone....with a special pizza deal. Would he answer the phone? Probably!....even if the message was a TEXT....offering a special deal IF he showed the Pizza clerk the message he received?

Now....I know that close to 100% of phones ARE answered and....if there was a special deal ....a high percentage would probably respond so....the question is.....HOW to collect those Phone Numbers?

Well...there's 2 ways I thought of...1) stick a Discount Coupon on the box with the words...."TEXT PIZZA TO 555-321-1234"...and 2) put a Sign near the cash register with...."SAVE 15% ON YOUR ORDER....TEXT PIZZA TO 555-321-1234.

So....I found a website that has the exact software I could set up to handle this.

So....if I could offer a Pizza biz (or ANY restaurant) that would like to have me collect Phone Numbers of customers....and TEXT them and give them a Reason to make another Purchase....would restaurant owners be willing to pay me to do this for them?

You Betcha, Red Ryder!

So....I'm off on another Entroopreneer Ride
