Free Text Messaging Business Model

Most services that offer genuine free SMS use it as a marketing ploy to attract visitors to their website. Once on their site and enjoying their free SMS service, they hope you will try some of their non-free services. This may include music, games, and ringtone download. Free text services also make money through advertising.

To reduce cost of your SMS, free text messaging services buy cheaper bulk SMS from different network providers upfront, enabling you to send SMS free as part of their bulk account with the service providers. Therefore, although you get it free, the free SMS provider pays for it but at a cheaper rate because they buy the SMS in bulk.
