Knoxville Recreation Center Gets the Word Out With CloseBy® Text Marketing

Knoxville Recreation Center in Knoxville, IA signed on with CloseBy® Text Marketing all the way back in June of 2013! Knoxville Recreation Center offers the Knoxville community state of the art fitness equipment, pool access, and a variety of activities and recreational sports for children. For 8 years, they’ve used our text marketing solutions to send announcements, reminders, and last-minute updates about the rec center to parents and community members.

CloseBy® Text Marketing puts business owners in control of communication and at the top of customers’ minds. Most smartphone users check their phones 150 times every day and read their texts within 3 minutes! With CloseBy®, you’re able to send different messages and promotions to separate lists so you can be sure you’re targeting your message to those who’d most benefit from receiving it. Knoxville Recreation Center uses their text lists to send relevant messages out to parents about sign-up deadlines, closures, time changes, and more for all of their programs.

Olivia Crawford, the Swim Team Director at Knoxville Recreation Center, said this about CloseBy® Text Marketing:

“Our Recreation facility has been using CloseBy® Text Marketing for 8 years and we could not be happier! This year there were some enhancements with our program and we were able to add additional lists to our text club! Our Swim Team now has their own list and the Swim Director is OVER THE MOON with the program! She loves that she can pre-schedule messages through the online system or she can send out spur of the moment messages from her cell phone! Prior to the Swim Team having the text club, they only had communication via a Phone Tree, Facebook, and Email … a lot of parents missed information. The text program is a pure asset to our Recreation Center and Swim Team and we are not sure what we would do without it!”
