  • Do you know anyone who deletes a text without reading it?
  • How long is it before you read a text message from one of your favourite outlets?
  • Customers must opt-in to receive your messages, therefore, they are and will be enthusiastic about your offers!  You can now reach your customers when the impact is greatest by analysing when they are most likely to purchase.
