Look carefully at Kinect.com. They offer an excellent texting feature that allows me (and any staff) to use text messages to instantly communicate with prospective (and also converted) clients and, perhaps most importantly, to easily allow clients to give a testimonial on Yelp and I think Google and facebook which is very valuable for service businesses. Kinect is too expensive so you will have an easy time competing with them and believe me, people will love your service even more!
Thanks for this idea, Sarkis!
