How much time do you spend designing flyers, emails, newspaper ads? It can be a long winding and torturous process and even when your marketing campaign goes live, are you even reaching your audience? SMS Marketing can both save you a lot of time but also reach your audience directly in seconds. Here are some ways SMS Marketing can save you time.
Time is too valuable to waste
More than a third (36 per cent) of marketers said that one of the biggest benefits of automating tasks was how it freed up time and focus for more exciting projects. Another survey found that 74 per cent said time saving was the biggest benefit.
Reach Customers Faster
SMS Marketing campaigns reach their audience in seconds. Should you wish to start a sale at lunchtime today, you can design, create and send you message to all your customers at 10:30 a.m. and they will receive the information instantly.
Research has shown that we check our mobiles at least 150 times per day. Research also shows that 90% of text messages are read within 3 minutes of receipt.
If you want to connect directly with your customers, it makes sense to send your marketing messages directly to your customer’s mobiles, which they will have on them at all times.
Furthermore, SMS Messages are designed to be short, concise messages so your customers, who are busy themselves will receive an offer which they can read in seconds. Compare this with long winding emails, Facebook/Twitter posts or newspaper ads which get lost in among all the other noise. Below are some examples that hit the mark.
“20% off all ladies shoes today at Greene’s. Promotion code is SUMMERSHOES“
“Get the BBQ on. First 100 Steaks at 50% off this morning at John’s Butchers. Use Promo code SUMMERSIZZLER”
