Tatango Offers Group SMS Text Messaging (invites)
Recently launched Tatango provides a one-to-many SMS text messaging service. Tatango reminds me of another startup, Chatterous. With the growing popularity of Twitter and its inability to target groups, services like Tatango and Chatterous could become acquisition targets. Tatango is perfect for getting help from your friends when you are out and about. It could also work well for work teams to make sure everyone is up-to-date on project and meeting status.
Here’s how it works. You setup your friends mobile phone numbers in Tatango, Then you create a message to send. Tatango then sends out the message via SMS to all members of your group.
Assuming they can handle the volume, Tatango could offer their service to companies wanting to provide SMS text alerts on product news and advertising. This method could be more effective than email marketing.
If you’d like an invite, we were able to grab some – just register here. Below is an overview of Tatango from founder Derek Johnson.
