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 permissions 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: https://clck2.me/HRvz"
