SMS Messaging in Mobile Marketing Strageties

If your business uses SMS messaging it is important to only use mobile numbers who have chosen to opt in to your marketing campaign. Currently, 95% of text messages are opened within five minutes of being received. If consumers are over run by spam or unwanted marketing messages, they will stop opening text messages as often.

Those consumers who have chosen to opt in to your SMS mobile marketing strategies are looking forward to receiving your texts and special offers. These are people who want to return to your place of business and are just waiting for a good reason to do so.

Text marketing to opt in consumers offers a very high return on investment for businesses. Texts cost no more to send out that sending an email. Texts are opened and read, on average, within five minutes of being received while emails can go days without being opened and are sometimes deleted without ever being opened. Adding SMS Marketing to your mobile marketing strategies will likely prove to be a wise investment.
