These messages are full of helpful, urgent information that easily appears right on the screen of Eureka residents’ phones. Currently, their messages go out to over 1,100 residents and the list is getting bigger and bigger. CloseBy® Text Marketing is entirely voluntary, so you know that your messages are only going out to those who want them. Text Marketing is a powerful tool for businesses communicating with customers and internal communication to employees, or it can be used to send out important messages members of your organization or city — just like Eureka, Illinois.


Eureka’s City Administrator, Melissa Brown, said, “We have been using CloseBy® Text Marketing for OVER four years and I cannot say enough POSITIVE things about the text program they offer! CloseBy® Text Marketing has given us the BEST form of communication to reach all of our residents in a QUICK and TIMELY manner! I personally LOVE that I can access the online system for message sending from my desktop, laptop or even my cell phone! It is amazing that I can send a message from the office, my house or while I am on the go! Everything about the program is EASY and EFFECTIVE!

Our residents LOVE that we have the text marketing program for the City of Eureka because it keeps them in the know of emergency situations and information! We have OVER 1,100 residents on our text program and that number is constantly growing! When new residents call in or stop in for information on water bills etc. we ALWAYS tell them about the text program! This is the BEST tool a City/Town/Village can have to connect with their residents and small business owners!”
