Ready to try text message marketing, but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you signed up for a free trial, and feel bogged down by the basics. Let’s keep it simple. First things first, clear your mind. Get rid of everything you think you know. Read through this list. If you’re guilty of these mistakes, it’s time to press the reset button.
Here’s 3 signs that prove you’re definitely overcomplicating text message marketing.
1. It takes you longer than 30 minutes to draft up a campaign.
We always want you to put effort into your text message marketing campaigns. Never just fire out an off the cuff message with no forethought. But, at the same time, it shouldn’t take you two hours to draft one up. Always schedule out your campaigns a couple weeks in advance. That way, you have time to sit down and brainstorm some great ideas. In the long run, this will definitely increase your productivity and success rate.
2. Your list promotion techniques are scattered and ineffective.
You plaster signs all over the store. You promote your text message marketing list on Facebook. You even encourage in store patrons to sign up via word of mouth. But for each method, there’s no tracking or plan involved. You don’t know how to measure which is the most effective, if any at all. You just take a shot in the dark with list promotion, which makes the entire process way more complicated than it has to be.
3. You’ve spent hours on the phone with our support team, but have yet to launch a campaign.
We love text message marketing. With that said, we want to make sure all our educational resources aren’t going to waste. We’re more than happy to offer one on one personal trainings, but make sure you put that session to use. Use your knowledge to fire out an awesome first campaign. Don’t put it off, today is just as good a day as any.
