Auto Dealers Generate Text Message Leads with Coded Hang-Tags from

Car Dealers nationwide are discovering an untapped lead source right on their lot; shopper’s smart phones.

Auto Dealers Generate Text Message Leads with Coded Hang-Tags from
Bangor, ME, April 14, 2014 --( After hours shoppers and those who don’t want to get out of their vehicles now have a new tool. Introducing - a unique hang-tag lead system that integrates smart phone texting technology with a dealership’s website.

“When a shopper wants more information they simply text the stock number on the hang-tag,” said John McKinnon, co-founder of “Within seconds of sending the text, the shopper receives an automatic text reply containing information about that specific vehicle.” McKinnon continues, “The dealership is then sent a TextUps lead into their CRM containing the shopper’s mobile phone number and a link to the vehicle they expressed an interest in.”

Text Ups delivers results according to John Elston, Internet Manager for Allen Mello Dodge in Nashua, NH, “I’m watching the football game on Saturday and get a Text Up on my phone... A young lady is on the lot, it’s raining and she sends a Text Up on a used Jeep Liberty... I call her back immediately and feature-benefit from my couch. I tell her to go into the office and speak with Steve, who closes the sale. I highly recommend Text Ups!”

According to James Fletcher, Customer Service for Text Ups, text leads are where emailed leads were fifteen years ago, “We are on the leading edge," says Fletcher, “Text Ups couldn’t be easier to use, the dealership just needs to hang the tags and wait for the leads to roll in. We professionally print and ship everything. We don’t use QR codes. Most importantly, you get the shopper’s mobile phone number. This is what sets Text Ups apart from other lead providers.”

Dan Dyer, Text Ups rep. for Dallas, TX explains the service to area dealerships this way, “In this day and age it just makes good sense to text vehicle information to your shopper’s mobile phone.”

Text Ups is currently in twenty-two states and is looking for Licensees to represent the service in several US markets. To see a demo, grab your smart phone, text CAR123 to 96300, and open the URL. Dealers can order a free demo-kit at
