Enhancing customer service via text message is a form of SMS marketing. As SMS text messaging is so widely used throughout the world, and has by far the highest open and response rate of any remote communication method, it makes sense to utilise it to its fullest potential. It is immediate, unobtrusive, and incredibly interactive. Statistics show that the vast majority of text messages are opened within half a minute of delivery, and almost everyone has at least a basic mobile phone which can send and receive text messages. This high open rate is critical in the time-sensitive industry of travel and hospitality.
Benefits of Text Messaging for Hotels and the Travel Industry
The travel industry makes great use of SMS to promote hot destinations and discounts or send time-sensitive alerts. While hotels use SMS for booking confirmations and reminders and to market offers.
Incredible return-on-investment (ROI)
SMS for hotels and travel is one of the most cost efficient methods of engaging with customers and prospects. Whether for marketing purposes, with time senstitive offers, or for transactional confirmations and reminders no other channel will give you open rates as high as 98%. Your messages get delivered and get consumed and this will positively affect sales and customer satisfaction.
