TextNow is going to SXSW!

Written by kevin-c


TextNow is going to SXSW (and nearby neighborhoods of Austin, particularly Rainey & 6th streets) to share our offering with the business communities and people in Austin alike.

That’s South by Southwest, if you don’t know, “an annual conglomeration of parallel film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences organized jointly that take place in mid-March in Austin, Texas,” as Wikipedia somewhat dryly describes. What they don’t mention is that it’s a whole bunch of fun.

We’re going to be at the Brand Innovators series, where we’ll be sharing our story with brands and marketers about how they are able to reach our desirable audience through mission-based advertising that gives rather than takes, and in particular how our Gen Z audience looks to connect with brands that share their values (eco-friendly/sustainability; health & wellness, LGBTQI+, work-life balance, and more). While there, our Sr. Director of Industry Marketing & Partnerships, Stephanie Gains, will also be hosting a fireside chat on Monday March 14th.

Beyond that, though, our street team will be at Salvation Pizza Friday, Mar 11 to Sunday, Mar 13, spreading the word about TextNow. Salvation Pizza will even offer a discount if you came there because of us!

But even more exciting, we’re going to be giving away 1000 SIM cards for free in Austin, at the corner of Rainey & 6th, or thereabouts. One thousand free SIMs, each bundled with our free Nationwide Talk & Text. How’s that for some fun?

So keep your eyes on our social channels (Twitter, Instagram, TikTok) for info in where we are, and for other fun surprises!

We’ll see you there!
