What’s a text marketing list if it’s not growing? A stagnant database of old numbers won’t bring you value. Keep it fresh and up to date with these three list growth techniques.
Post opt in details on Facebook, along with an appealing incentive.
In addition to text to join info, don’t forget to include the required compliance statement. This will include your expected monthly message frequency and a link to terms and conditions. It doesn’t have to take over the graphic. If it’s written in fine print on the very bottom, that will protect you from potential legal repercussions.
Run a 24 hour text to win contest.
Given the right incentive, a text to win contest can rapidly grow your list in a short amount of time. First and foremost, know what your customers want. If the grand prize isn’t appealing, and even irresistible, you won’t get the best return on your efforts. If you want to add an extra punch to your contest incentive, offer a small instant win deal in addition to the grand prize. Something like “Text GAMES to 31996 for $2 off your next meal, and be entered to win a $500 gift card. Winner announced 2/16.”
Send an email to your mailing list.
If you already have a list of targeted and qualified email subscribers, why not invite these VIPs to join your text list? However, don’t just duplicate your mailing list opt in incentive, as this makes joining your text list pointless. Instead, find a way to offer additional value that’s exclusive to text subscribers.
