WHAT IS SMS MARKETING?
SMS stands for short message server, otherwise known as text messages. SMS Marketing, also known as Text Message Marketing, is a marketing method that allows businesses to use text message to send messages like specials, coupons, promotions, alerts, and so forth directly to their audiences’ mobile devices. These permission-based text messages are highly targeted, and are usually opted-in by mobile device users that want to receive text messages from businesses.
WHY SMS MARKETING?
Flyers, newsletters, and print ads—traditional marketing just isn’t as effective as it used to be. In today’s digital times, businesses are adopting technologies that reach places their audience can’t live without—their mobile devices or smartphones. With SMS Marketing, you can catch your audience’s attention through the most immediate channel—a place they constantly check an average of 150 times throughout the day—their mobile devices.
SMS Messages are instant, allowing you to reach your audience instantly, and literally put your message into your subscribers’ pockets or purses only seconds after you send your text. The average time it takes for all mobile carriers or SMS services to send and receive a message is less than 7 seconds. But more importantly, the average time that it takes for an individual to open your text message after they’ve received it on their mobile device is only 4 minutes. Compare this to 48 hours for email messages.
SMS is a highly effective form of marketing compared to other forms of marketing. Email marketing produces 22% read messages. Twitter produces 29% read tweets. Facebook produces 12% read posts. With SMS Marketing, 91% of US residents have their cell phones within reach 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, and they open and read 98% of all text messages received. Additionally, the average time it takes for all mobile users to read your text message is only 4 minutes. With statistics like these, you’re guaranteed to effectively communicate your business’ message directly to the mobile devices of all subscribers almost instantly.
COUPONS AT WORK
Studies have shown that 80% of Americans would like to receive SMS Coupons such as special offers and promotions through text message from their favorite businesses. Additionally, SMS Coupons are 10 times more likely to be redeemed and shared than mail or newspaper coupons. In fact, 32% of these SMS Coupons are actually shared with at least 1 friend. With SMS Marketing, the statistics—and results—speak for themselves.
