Refusing to follow Text Marketing Best Practices

It’s no secret. When trying a new marketing method, there’s generally a set of best practices you must follow in order to be successful. And, lucky for you, we make our best practice education readily available. In fact, while going through your one on one training session, you probably got a verbal brief as well. Now, do we expect you to become an SMS marketing pro overnight? Absolutely not. At the same time, we hope that you embrace our endless amount of learning tools, and check out our top SMS marketing best practices. Now, let’s just say you skim through these guidelines, or maybe you don’t even look at all. If you neglect to familiarize yourself with these techniques, here’s what could happen.

Your SMS marketing list will not grow.

Even if it does, it will be made up of unqualified subscribers. These opt ins might have a half interest in your product or service, if you’re lucky. Word of your poor practice habits will spread, and future customers will have no interest in signing up for your SMS marketing list.

Subscribers will get annoyed.

You want subscribers to look forward to, and take action on your SMS marketing campaigns. If you fail to follow best practices, they simply won’t. They might not even read your messages, and definitely won’t redeem any offers. The long term effect? Your business just won’t grow.

Your churn rate will drastically increase.

Who wants to be part of an SMS marketing list that doesn’t follow best practices? Chances are, no one. When people catch wind of your apathetic methods, they’ll quickly unsubscribe. Once this happens, good luck getting them back. You only have one chance at making a good first impression, so don’t ruin it.
