Quick Texting Hacks That Have a Dramatic Impact on List Engagement

SMS marketing tips

These quick tips will increase subscriber engagement and encourage offer redemption. Sometimes, one little tweak can greatly enhance list participation. Beyond our basic tips, these texting hacks will help you make the most of your SMS marketing efforts.

1. Include brand/business name in all outbound campaigns.

As text messaging grows in popularity, you can’t assume that subscribers are only engaging with your list. For example, let’s say you own a hot dog stand. One of your subscribers might also opt in to a local pizza joint; especially if they’re a late night foodie. For this reason, include your brand or business name in all text campaign. Instead of “Stop in to get $5 off,” try “Stop in at Joe’s Shack to get $5 off.”

2. Simplify auto reply offer redemption with our dynamic expiration date feature.

Don’t overcomplicate offer redemption. If you want all new subscribers to have 7 days to redeem the auto reply offer, simply put “Expires on {EXP7}” in your message. This way, you don’t have to stress about tracking redemption.

3. Switch on all “set it and forget it” features.

Birthday rewards? Flick them on, set the parameters, and then let this feature run itself. Same thing goes with email capture. Whenever possible, take advantage of our “switch on, hands off” functionality. We don’t want you using a marketing tool that requires daily monitoring. As a small business owner, that eats time out of your busy schedule. We’ve built a platform with ease of use in mind. We want to make text marketing as simple and easy as possible. You don’t have to be an expert to experience success with SMS.
