SMS for Marketing Campaigns and Team Communications
Text messaging is a superior marketing tool when compared with traditional advertising and marketing methods such as postal campaigns, telemarketing phone calls, and emailing. Consumers often respond more favourably to a text message, with the expectation that it will be personal to them in nature and as such warrants opening and responding.
Effective SMS Marketing solutions allow businesses to conduct promotional marketing activities via an SMS messaging service. These messages or alerts, if cleverly composed, individually personalised, and appropriately timed, may make a huge difference to the success of a marketing campaign.
Want 98% Open Rates for Your Marketing Messages?
When it comes to getting your message to your entire database, you can't go past text message marketing. SMS is great for cutting through the noise and delivering your message straight to your client's pocket. Not only do 98% of text messages get read, 90% of text messages are opened within minutes of delivery.
In comparison, email open rates average between 20-30% and engagement levels are also lower than SMS. So if you need to reach the maximum audience in the shortest time, consider text message marketing.
