SMS Campaign Examples – Texting 101

Are you looking for SMS business ideas to help you get started on your text marketing journey? We’ve got you covered. At EZ Texting we’ve help thousands of organizations get up and running with texting. We designed this “Texting 101” series to help you understand the basics of texting and get going with your initial text messaging sends. Here are of our most common SMS campaign examples, and how you can implement something similar:

1. SMS Keyword Campaign for List Growth

Sending SMS messages is a great way to promote your business. But before you start, you need a list of contacts who have given you permission to text them. The best way to get that permission is with a Keyword campaign to build your opted-in subscriber list. Using an online texting service like EZ Texting, you can reserve a Keyword such as “Subscribe” on a short code like 313131. Be sure to market your Keyword by putting it on store signage and on your website to make sure you get the sign ups you want.

2. SMS Promotion Campaign to Increase Sales

The next step is to send out a promotion campaign to your opted-in contacts! Think of an offer that will capture your audience’s interest – and has a clear action for them to take. To improve your chances of success, try dividing your contacts into groups based on their interests and create customized offers just for them. For example, if you have a list of vacation shoppers you could send them a text that spurs them to book, "Last minute deals available now at the EZ Beach resort! Book now:"
