Short Message Service (SMS) marketing is still a very effective way for brands to use an owned channel for reaching, connecting, and converting subscribers.
The term “used channel” is utilized because consumers must subscribe or opt in before you can legitimately send them marketing messages. But once a subscriber opts in, however, you can control how you use their data to reach them.
Why Use SMS Marketing?
SMS marketing creates a more personalized communication challenge through which brands can fully engage consumers. By reaching consumers via their SMS inboxes—via text messages—a more interactive and value-driven relationship emerges.
There are many reasons why SMS marketing is still so effective nowadays, but here are a few of the most compelling reasons:
Texts deliver a nearly 100% open rate—and 90% are opened within three minutes
Texts are usually reserved for friends and family, which makes them an effective communication channel for the vast majority of consumers
People use their text message services to keep in touch with their loved ones and maintain their relationships
If a brand can become part of a consumer’s inner circle, the sky’s the limit in terms of developing a productive, loyalty-driven relationship.
