This is Exactly Why Retail Stores Love Text Marketing

text marketing for retail stores

It’s all about the promo.

Text marketing draws attention to the offer. It’s not about having long, drawn out conversations with customers. With SMS, you’re encouraged to get right to the point. Send out the offer with a call to action and boom – you’re done. Don’t bother with fluffy communication, as that’s not what subscribers anticipate. The good news? People who opt in to your text marketing list are ready to get their shop on. They want deals.

You can still include a visual.

Our retail customers love the picture messaging feature. They use MMS to launch new product additions, special deals, or limited time offers. For example, let’s say you own an online scarf store. You want to run a holiday promo, featuring your red and green scarves. By all means, text out a photo of someone wearing your scarf around a cozy fire, and include a limited time promo.

Increase store traffic with one text.

Having a slow day? Fire out an SMS campaign, and give business a boost. Although text marketing is something you should be keeping up with regularly, you can use it to kickstart sales on a quiet day, at the very least. If you’re an online retailer, this also applies. Noticing that daily totals aren’t hitting their expected peak? Send out a text, and run a 3 hour flash sale. This will drive traffic to your site, and help you hit your daily sales goals.
