Taco Bell Will you Marry me via text message?

Taco Bell one of my favorite restaurant brands of all time! Now if only we could take them to another level, mobile via restaurant text message marketing. While driving home this past week I stopped into Taco Bell in Frisco and had lunch. I was handed a paper coupon for Taco Sunday.

What a perfect application for Text message marketing! If instead of handing us a paper coupon they asked us to text TACO to a short code, we’d then have this coupon on our phone for that Sunday offer. Taco Bells in Denver are working with the Colorado Rockies, Denver Nuggets and the Broncos and they are using mobile to remind us of their special when the teams score a certain amount of points.

So Taco Bell – Will you marry me via text message marketing and we can enjoy our Sunday Funday’s with Tacos?
