“I tried Talkio because of how much time I was spending answering the phone. As a small business owner, it’s been hard to manage the constant interruption with the need to manage intake of new customers.” says Chris from 3D Central  

Business is no longer simply, business as usual. The way businesses were used to operating has changed over the last few months, and there are some things that will never go back to the way they were before. One of those things is the way they communicate with customers. Customers want simple, easy and instant support.

“We’re in an age where consumers wants instant responses and support, not long wait times. At the same time, businesses are looking for ways to offer quick customer support and sales service while also managing business operations.”, says Venkat Kolluri, CEO – Talkio, based on proven to be effective and useful SMS messaging technology, is designed to address this challenge, making it easy for customers to contact businesses when needed, and businesses to quickly respond back and manage all incoming requests, to help drive sales and grow business.

“We’re currently seeing a 9-1 ratio on people messaging us using Talkio compared to phone calls and live chat. ”  says Kevin from

Talkio is available to businesses with monthly plans starting at just $9.99. However, as businesses plan on reopening, to help support clients, Cidewalk is offering Talkio for absolutely FREE for the rest of 2020. To see a live demo and learn more about the service:
