4 Surprising Things Your Business Can Do with Text Messaging

By now, most people know that texting messaging exists and that it’s a great way to connect with friends. Businesses have started to use texting as well to remind customers about appointments and promote sales. But is that all that texting can do for businesses? The answer is no!

Bulk text messaging gives businesses a flexible platform that can be used in a variety of ways. Bottom line – it’s a fast and easy way to get your message read nearly every time. Here are four impactful things you can do with text messaging that you may not have thought of:

1. Coordinate Your Workforce

Sending bulk text messages is a great way to let your workforce know about daily shift schedules, weather alerts, or HR tasks they need to complete. It’s perfect for situations where you need your workers to receive message quickly.

2. Advertise an Event

Got a bake sale, concert, or volunteer opportunity? Texting is a quick and easy way to let thousands of contacts know in a matter of minutes. Sending notifications via text keeps your event top-of-mind and can help ensure that people show up.

3. Billing Alerts

Whether you’re dealing with customers or vendors, automatic billing alerts delivered via text can make it easier to ensure you’re in the black at the close of the month. Texting’s superior open rate can keep your message from getting lost in the mix.

4. Customer Service

Text customers when their package arrives or chat with them one-on-one via text-enabled landline. Many consumers prefer to communicate via text message. Offering this option will make you more responsive to your customers’ needs.

Texting is a great way to serve and engage customers and grow your business. Think about how you can save time, effort and money by using texting.
