Why Some People Are Still Scared of SMS Marketing

SMS marketing

We’re all about being 100% authentic. In this blog post, we want to open up about reasons why people don’t give SMS marketing a try. While reading, we hope to to address your fears, and dispel any possible myths.

1. You’re afraid of seeming invasive.

SMS is ultra personal. You don’t give your phone number out to everyone. In fact, texting is a pretty personal form of communication. How do you avoid destroying your subscriber’s trust? Make sure all the offers you send out are high value and exclusive.

2. You don’t see how it’s different from every other marketing method.

Social media, email … blah, blah, blah. With all these easy to use solutions, some may wonder, “Why SMS?” We totally get it. If you’re a business owner or marketing manager, your options are endless. Which ones do you choose? Well, here’s the long and short of it. SMS is a complete no brainer. Over 90% of all text messages are opened and read within five minutes or less. No other marketing methods boost that kind of reach or open rate.

3. You assume it’s way out of your budget.

We get it. MOST marketing methods nowadays cost an arm and a leg. Heck, there’s software out there that charges double digits just to “organize” your life. What does this organization look like? Oh … you know … just allowing you to type your daily appointments in little boxes and get meeting reminders.
