SMS Marketing Tools

Text clubs & mobile registration

A text club is a group of people who have opted-in (registered) to receive text messages from a specific sender. There are many ways someone can become a member of your text club, with the two most popular being texting a keyword to a specific short code and/or signing up on a website. It is a good idea to brand the club as a VIP group with the specific advantages of being able to receive product discounts, win prizes, and get access to the latest information before anyone else. Members of the text club can receive news alerts, invitations to contests, coupons, product information, sales updates, and more.

  • Encourage customer loyalty
  • Grow mobile database
  • Increase sales
  • Gather valuable customer information

Mobile voting

Text voting, also known as mobile polling, allows organizations to conduct a poll by sending text messages to customers or mobile users who have opted-in to receive them. The types of polls that can be run vary from single A versus B questions to multi-choice, multi-question versions where the customer could even rank their choices. Text voting is one of the best means of capturing valuable data about your customers!

  • Improve campaign targeting
  • Increase sales
  • Build customer database
  • Create excitement through interactivity

SMS reminders

SMS reminders are a great way for businesses that depend on appointments or reservations to minimize cancellations, no shows, and other wasted opportunities. Because missed appointments mean lost revenue, SMS reminders are becoming a must for many types of businesses including restaurants, hotels, health care providers, automotive repair, and more. They are low cost and simple, with any company being able to sign up and start sending to reminders to customers in minutes.

  • Reduces cost of reminders
  • Protects and increase revenues
  • Generates up-sell opportunities

SMS trivia

SMS trivia is exactly what you think it is, trivia questions sent via text. Mobile recipients respond to specific short codes to participate in the trivia game. The games can be one on one, or more complex with multiple participants and successive rounds of play, leading to a winner or champion who would be awarded a prize. This can be an exciting and fun way for customers to engage with your brand and learn something about your products or services in the process.

  • Increase sales
  • Educate customers about your products or services
  • Build your customer database
  • Foster customer loyalty

Mobile coupons

Coupons are used by millions of consumers to save money on their purchases every day. Mobile coupons are simpler and more powerful than printed coupons because they can be sent to consumers that have opted-in to receive discounts from a particular seller. Since the coupons arrive in the form of text messages, the service is more convenient for the consumer as well.

  • Creates customer loyalty
  • Increases sales
  • Reduces cost of coupon advertising
  • Builds your mobile database
  • Coupons can be forwarded to friends

Text contests

Text contests are a very popular mobile marketing solution because for the relatively low cost of a text message, consumers have the opportunity to win prizes. Contests, like text to win and sweepstakes, are fun and interactive. They create excitement while engaging customers and potential customers. Best of all, they are an excellent means to build your mobile marketing database.

  • Award prizes
  • Give gift cards
  • Product giveaways
  • Win discounts

Mobile surveys

Mobile surveys allow organizations to ask their customers questions by sending text messages to those that have opted-in to receive them. The types of surveys that can be run vary from single questions to multi-question surveys where the customer could even rank their choices. Text surveys, like mobile voting, are one of the best means of capturing valuable data about your customers!
