Ready to take the bull by the horns and grow your SMS marketing list? Not so fast. Before charging forward to promote your list and send out your first campaign; ask yourself these 3 questions.
What’s the best way to promote my list?
Do your customers live on Facebook? Maybe in store flyers would do the trick. Before you can grow your list, you have to know how to reach your customers. If you can’t quite decide, here are some top list promotion techniques.
- Share text to join details on social media.
- Email your customers with the opt in incentive.
- Train employees on how to inform in store customers about your list.
- Insert a sign up widget on your website.
- Print text to join details on customer receipts.
What offers will my customers find the most appealing?
Use SMS to treat your customers like VIPs. Reward them with exclusive and high value offers. Don’t take advantage of their engagement by only sending out measly, low quality promotions. Track offer redemption, and eliminate any promotions that simply don’t get a great response. Use SMS to promote the “best of the best.” This will make subscribers happy; and on top of that, accelerate your list growth.
Have I fully reviewed the rules of SMS marketing compliance?
This is a non negotiable. If you’re going to text your customers, do it the right way. Remember, SMS marketing is a permission based method of communication. Customers must opt in to your list. In addition to compliance law, also take a peek at our best practices.
