Grow Your Business With Mobile Marketing
What if there was a way to communicate a marketing message with your customers that had a 97% read rate?
You can! With text message marketing (also known as SMS marketing), you can send your customers the exact message you want, when you want. And since 97% of text messages are read (83% within 1 hour), almost every single customer who joined your SMS list will read it.
SMS marketing is an extremely cost-effective, high-response-rate vehicle, which can help to acquire and retain consumers, sell and promote products, drive loyalty, and reinforce branding efforts.
Because of this, SMS marketing is much more effective than traditional advertising like radio ads, TV ads, newspaper ads, and even email marketing.
