Mobile phone penetration in the US is at a staggering 81.4% with more than 300 million mobile phone users making the United States the third largest mobile phone market in the world. The market continues to grow steadily and offers endless opportunities for marketers and businesses to deliver their messages straight into the hands of their audience.
And now, you can send more text messages to the US for less since we’ve just dropped our USA message pricing to the lowest price ever at only $0.008 per message! We’ve also removed any minimum spend limits or tiered pricing so everybody pays the same low price no matter how many messages you send.
With an open rate of 98% and with up to 90% of people receiving text marketing messages, reading them within three seconds, it’s a no-brainer why text marketing is so successful.
Here are just a few ways you can use text message marketing to grow your business and tap into the huge US market:
Competitions: Using a short code for your promotional messages to the US allows you to invite customers to enter a competition by replying to your messages with their details. This is a great way to build up your customer database and identify new leads.
Appointment reminders and confirmations: Time is money. And, when a customer forgets an appointment or fails to cancel their bookings, your business suffers. Sending out automated reminders is a great way to ensure appointments aren’t forgotten.
Customer Relationship Management: Personalized customer interactions are essential in building closer relationships with your client base. Integrating text messaging with your existing CRM program is super easy and automating workflows using text messages saves significant costs while improving the overall customer experience.
Lead generation: Text messaging is a very popular method to encourage potential customers to send a message to your short code to get a quote or more information about your products.
Improved customer support services: Great customer service has become a significant competitive edge in a crowded market. The uniquely personal and instantaneous nature of text messaging enables customers to receive exactly the help or support they are looking for – no matter where they are.
There are so many more great ways that businesses are using text messaging to grow their businesses and with our new low pricing there’s no better time to send out your marketing campaigns than now.
