They’ve caught on due to their mass appeal, and it’s time for you, the business owner, to embrace these tactics. Remember, with text marketing, you get out what you put in. Take advantage of our huge feature list. This is the best way to not only grow your list; but keep subscribers engaged as well.

Podcast hosts, YouTubers, and other digital influencers using text to download to connect with their audience.

Ditch the clunky email delivery tactics. Instead, send important downloads and information right to their phone. Text a link to a pdf, a video, infographic, etc. Furthermore, if you switch on email capture and integration, you can grow your mailing list while engaging with your audience via text. It’s a win win.

Big box retailers using mobile coupons to encourage better customer interaction with offers.

Mobile coupons allows subscribers to interact with the offer. They can click for directions to your brick and mortar, upvote or downvote the offer, and so much more. In addition, we offer countdown ticker functionality. This creates a better sense of urgency, as subscribers can see how long they have until the redemption period expires. Finally, you can include an image at the top of the coupon, which draws the customer in to redeem.

Business owners are embracing the “hands off” functionality of drip marketing campaigns.

Who wants to spend hours every day tinkering with marketing campaigns? Sure, text marketing is effective, and definitely worth the time. But, you should be focusing the majority of your attention on the day to day business activities. Let our drip marketing feature do the work for you. Schedule automated messages for 1 day, 7 days, 30 days out, etc.
