For People On the Verge of Quitting Text Marketing

text message marketing troubleshooting

You’ve tried text marketing. In your opinion, you’ve given it an A+ effort. It just isn’t working out, and you’re ready to pull the plug. Before giving up, let us offer a few suggestions.

Problem: My list isn’t growing.

If you don’t have people on your list, there’s no one to market to. Try different promotional outlets. Let’s say you’ve just been pushing your list via email. Give in store flyers or social media a try.

Now, have you maxed out all your outlets? In this case, your opt in offer is the issue. Sit down with your team, and brainstorm new incentives. You want new sign ups to receive a hefty reward for joining your list. Remember, people like immediate gratification, so an instant reward might do the trick. For example, “Want $3 off tonight’s dinner? Text YUM to 31996 to claim this deal and join our mobile VIP club.

Problem: My offers aren’t getting redeemed.

You fire out a 20% promo code to 100 subscribers. Out of this group, only 2 redeem your offer. That’s not something to write home about. This could be one of two issues. Either your offers just aren’t wowing subscribers, or you aren’t sending them at the right time.

For example, let’s say you own a pancake house, but you’re firing out breakfast promos at 930AM on weekdays. Most likely, people are at work, and aren’t thinking about buying a stack of hotcakes. Instead, try sending this offer at 9AM on a Saturday. Then watch as redemption soars.

Problem: I don’t understand how it works.

This is an easy solution. Head over to the Text Marketing Learning Center, and comb through our helpful resources. If you still aren’t quite grasping the concept, give us a buzz. We’ll happily walk you through it.
