What is SMS Marketing?
SMS marketing services allow you to provide targeted, personalized messaging to your client base, wherever they are. As a business owner, you can use SMS messaging to build client lists (e.g. text to win), launch marketing campaigns, send appointment reminders and surveys, or even engage in two-way conversation. It’s quite simple. Just compose a short, digestible message to your clients. Send it immediately or schedule it for a date and time of your choosing. Studies have shown that 90% of SMS marketing messages are opened within 3 seconds, compelling your customers to take action.
SMS Marketing performs better than email
When it comes to personal marketing, nothing gets you closer than a text. A well-placed, non-intrusive message can be a powerful tool with customers who are on-the-go or rely on their mobile devices for connectivity. While email has historically been hailed as the most powerful digital marketing tool, there is something about that tiny buzz and expectant chime that can be quite compelling to customers. Research shows that SMS messaging overwhelms email in its effectiveness, boasting an open rate of 98% vs. 20% for email.
Supports other digital marketing efforts
SMS marketing services can also be integrated into your overarching digital marketing strategy and used to complement other marketing efforts. Since open rates are multiples higher than email, you can use SMS messaging to “nudge” customers to read your email campaigns. Reminders sent by SMS have been shown to increase email read rates by 20-30% (smartinsights).
