Why use SMS Marketing?
Our mobile phone goes pretty much everywhere with us and remains the best and fastest way to get in touch. The beauty of SMS marketing is that it’s so fast, and is read more often than any other marketing, including email.
Any kind of business can benefit from SMS Marketing, to create special offers, get feedback from customers or ensure people make appointments. On our blog, we’ll be sharing all sorts of tips on the different ways you can use SMS, and best practice to achieve your goals.
SMS marketing can help you launch a new product, grow your business, engage people in your events or get instant feedback on how well you’re doing. The key is to get the right content sent at the right time.
When developing an SMS campaign it’s important to remember who you are! Your campaign should reflect your business personality and sit well with your other marketing. You need to be able to manage the extra customers or have time to work through the feedback and respond to it.
For example, if you’re a web developer, then you almost certainly have Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. You can tie your SMS marketing to your social media to increase engagement and gain new subscribers.
An independent grocery store may not have a strong online presence. In this case, SMS is perfect for sending out discount offers or reminders of the latest bargains in store. You can also set-up a loyalty scheme to keep customers coming back.
A web developer is used to dealing with tweets and posts, so the SMS campaign fits neatly and is easily managed. For the store, their campaigns require almost no maintenance so no extra work, which suits a smaller staff team.
