Text message marketing is a simple yet effective way to market, inform or alert your clientele.
Select a keyword that will work best for you and your customers. For Example: Gino’s Pizza might choose a keyword “pizza” or “ginos”. This is a word that is relevant to your business name or product. Choose your toll-free number.
Promote your number and keyword on your existing marketing campaigns (radio, print, newspaper), store front (at the cash register, table, etc), website, social media, etc. For Example: Your advertisement on Facebook, website, business card, or newspaper might say: Text “PIZZA” to 888-444-2332 to receive a Free Drink and get special offers!
When a person opts in by sending the keyword to the short code they will receive an auto response which you can customize – great for instant savings/coupons/etc. This adds them to your marketing list which you can text anytime.
Send your mobile marketing message out to your list of clients for special events, coupons/sales, or new products. This could be a reminder or any type of message you like.
Text messages have a more than thirty percent response rate making it the most effective way of marketing. Send out your marketing messages for daily, weekly or monthly events, specials, or reminders and watch your business grow.
