The Power of SMS
We can’t deny that text messaging is one of the most popular forms of communication.
So texting might be the best medium for businesses to engage potential customers and retain existing ones. One thing’s for sure, SMS is a must have for a successful overall mobile marketing effort as it acts as a campaign driver.
Advantages of SMS Marketing
SMS is a form of narrowcasting marketing, which means sending the message and sharing your content with a more selective but more meaningful audience. It is about building relationships with the relevant groups. It is important to ensure that you message is actually being read, not just received. As shown on the image, while only 12% of Facebook posts and 29% of tweets are read – Text Message open rates are between 98%-99% and almost all are read within the first five minutes.
The brevity and brief nature of a text message saves time and is convenient to both the marketer and the client. Emails can carry lengthy promotions. However, the fact is that some clients do not even read such lengthy promotions in the first place because they are long and boring. Unlike telephone calls, a text message can be read at the convenience of the client.
Marketing through text messaging carries a higher chance of conversion than in the other marketing channels. A recent market survey showed that SMS coupons are ten times more likely to be redeemed and shared than mail or newspaper coupons.
