Text Request, the online texting service for businesses, surpassed a significant milestone this summer when it topped $1 million in annual recurring revenue (ARR). The milestone is of heightened significance to company leadership, as it was achieved without any outside investment dollars.
“The Text Request journey to $1 million ARR has been an exciting one,” says Text Request CEO Brian Elrod. “We’ve been able to take a ‘light bulb’ idea and, with our incredible team, turn it into a service that empowers businesses to engage with their audiences through a measurably efficient, cost-effective channel. And I couldn’t be prouder of the fact that we’ve bootstrapped our way to this point.”
Text Request is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product. Customers sign up to text using their current business numbers, and get an online dashboard to manage texts professionally, which they can login to from any device. Features include a shared dashboard for multiple users, message templates, keywords, group messaging, permanent records of messages, picture messaging, and more.
The Text Request client roster, nearly 1,000 strong, is comprised of partner businesses of all sizes from a wide array of industries.
Well-known clients include Harley-Davidson, Ticketmaster, Nissan, and State Farm, among many other marquee brands.
“As fun as it is to hit a benchmark, we’re really using the occasion to prepare for the future,” says Elrod. “We’ve proven our service provides valuable returns for our clients. Now we’re taking what we’ve learned and building on those experiences to deliver even more wins for our current clients and the ones we’ll have the chance to work with in years to come.”
