The Benefits of Mobile (Text) Marketing

Mobile marketing is a fabulous marketing vehicle for any size business and any locality… local establishment or global brand.  Small business owners should relish the opportunity and embrace mobile marketing for many reasons; here are a just few.

  • In 2004, 10 billion text messages were sent… compare this to 80 billion in 2008 and 100+ billion in 2010. Text messaging is here to stay.
  • Mobile messages are read within 4 minutes compared to 48 hours for an average email
  • Reach mobile users any time of day or night. Potential and current customers don’t always have their computers with them, but they do have their phones.  Take full advantage of this as long as your customers voluntarily opt in to receive text messages… and always provide an opt out mechanism
  • Mobile marketing is extremely low-cost when compare to any other marketing vehicle. Cost can be as low as 5 cents a message. Utilize a shared short code and save even more!   Ask us about our new shared mobile marketing platform.  We offer a Web-based tool which enables any business to implement a mobile campaign.

  • Mobile messaging is a 2-way communication channel that will build customer loyalty and yields a high level of engagement.
  • Campaigns can be real-time or pre-scheduled
  • Companies have see conversion rates as high as 25%….
