SMS Marketing is at the center of the Mobile Marketing strategy that we’re seeing gain more and more adepts. It might be that we hate using email but we love sending texts, that SMS Marketing has a better response from customers than email campaigns.
To take advantage of this and start sending messages that will drive more leads, we should always remember:
Let people know
Promote your number so that people can reach out to you. Include your number in your website, Facebook page and paid ads and encourage people to send you an SMS whenever they want (just be sure to respond right away!)
Include a CTA
Tell your prospects what to do with a clear call-to-action. Before you send your message, take a moment to think about what’s the ultimate goal for your communication and include a call-to-action that will guide your prospects towards that goal. Check here for more ideas.
By sending SMS you’re opting for an immediate way of communication, which means your prospects won’t have time for long readings. To illustrate the kind of attention that your leads will have for you, try to imagine yourself driving through a highway and then suddenly seeing an ad on a board. That’s the kind of short message that we’re trying to emulate here.
Your customers will pay attention only to what covers their special needs, so use segmentation to target those that could find value in your offer. To do this, try creating different lists of customers to send them the information they will value the most. Learn here how to do it on Octopush.
