Text “DAMAGE” to 21000
United States – Lately, I have been exploring new ways to help Hurri-Dry Nationwide clients find us when disaster strikes with the shortest amount of time. Last week, we released our new mobile app, but this week we released yet another new feature which can find our company in an emergency and also easy to remember.
Now you can simply text “DAMAGE” to 21000.
After stay-at-home measures went into effect to prevent the spread of COVID-19, I participated in virtual networking events, both local to our headquarters and nationwide. In one of these virtual events, I met Gabe O’Neill, the owner/operator of Digital Accelerant LLC out of Atlanta.
O’Neill’s business is creating and hosting digital business cards which business owners, developers and sales staff can use to help people find their contact info easy without risking misplacing their business cards. O’Neill was marketing his own contact information as Text “Gabe” to 21000. After the virtual meeting, I knew I was interested.
About a year and a half ago, O’Neill and company moved from Canton, Ga. to Dallas, Ga. which forced him to start his business network all over again.
“Knowing how long it takes to connect with people and get them to trust you, I really wanted to speed that process up,” O’Neill said.
He decided to start giving away digital business cards, feeling it would be a faster means for people in his referral network to know him. Doing that helped his business blossom into a larger entity, which he hadn’t expected. He soon added audio and video to the cards and his network started to ask where he obtained such a marketing tool, so he refocused his business.
Eventually, I sought out O’Neill and asked about the concept of the digital business card and how it could help those of us in the emergency disaster restoration industry. After speaking to his other clients, and counseling with our ownership team, we decided to have O’Neill set us up with Text “DAMAGE” to 21000.
So like our mobile app, Texting “DAMAGE” to 21000 will text you back and quick message with a link, upon which a person can click can receive all the avenues to contact Hurri-Dry Nationwide, including icons to take the user to our website, call our office/emergency nationwide number, email our Customer Service desk, download our app and find our Facebook profile.
“There’s really no other system out there that compares to what we’re doing with our digital cards,” O’Neill said. “Every card we build it custom branded which makes a powerful impression on those who received it.”
All our information is available in your phone just by texting “DAMAGE” to 21000. It’s an easy task to perform now before there is a disaster to your property to ensure you have our information already stored in your phone if there IS one. No more digging around for a business card. No more Googling for us and trying to remember our website address. Just text “DAMAGE” to 21000 and everything is on your phone. Download our mobile app from there for even faster 24-hour emergency disaster response.
So let’s review. If you bookmark our website on our phone, there’s a button at the very top which says “Click for Emergency Dispatch.” If you download our mobile app to your phone, you just have to open the app and click “CALL NOW.” And NOW, you can text “DAMAGE” to 21000 and get all the above information as well.
What I appreciate highly about working with O’Neill is he is not strictly operating this service for the money. One of his biggest goals in life is to be valuable to other people, he said.
“Something I’ve created is actually bringing in revenue for other people,” O’Neill said. “That is very significant for me.” O’Neill can be reached by texting “GABE” to 21000.
The ways you can reach Hurri-Dry Nationwide during a disaster emergency is growing, and we will constantly look at new ways to make our services accessible with faster, easier ways to contact us and improve our response times.
