Best SMS Campaigns for Small Town Mom and Pop Shops

Best SMS Campaigns for Small Town Mom and Pop Shops

small business owner

Typically, local business owners want help marketing their establishment. They know it’s necessary; but at the same time, they don’t want to fork over hundreds of dollars in exchange for a couple new sales. It’s just not worth it. A poor investment could put them under, and hinder business growth.

Keeping that in mind, we want to recommend SMS marketing. At just pennies per text, tons of local business owners nationwide find success with our platform. Here’s our top campaign recommendations.

1. Text Out Detailed Photos of Your Best Products

People respond best to marketing messages with visual cues. Send out a photo of a new product, location, or special. For example, let’s say you own a corner grocery store. You’re running a special on all deli meats, one day only. Send a pic of your best cuts and fire out that text. Don’t forget to include a promo code or at the bare minimum, some sort of call to action.

2. “Show This Text” Deals

This campaign is pretty common in the SMS marketing space. For a brick and mortar location, it increases incoming foot traffic; which ultimately encourages revenue. Whatever the deal, use “show this text” as your call to action.

3. Text to Win Contest to Celebrate Years in Business 

Thank your customers for their continued years of patronage. This promo works wonders for a mom and pop shop that’s been around for a while. Fire out an anniversary discount. Let’s say you’re celebrating ten years in business. During your anniversary month, run a text to win contest for a big grand prize, and reward all non winners with a small, instant win discount.
