Text message marketing is all permission-based only. There are a couple of bigger companies that have been sued very heavily over unsolicited messaging. Jiffy Lube, Burger King, and Simon & Schuster to name a few (Simon & Schuster is a publishing company that texted people about a Stephen King novel they were releasing).

Just don't do it. It's annoying to receive unsolicited messages and it can lead to very hefty legal fines. I have a couple of articles I wrote on the subject if you wanna read them:
