The Goal of SMS Marketing is to build list and connection with your client as many as possible , so everytime you have special offer , new service / product , held an event , you have THE LIST that you can contact anytime to read your message .
Here is an example
Imagine you are a pizza owner , you display a VIP SMS CLUB on your website for your future customers and send out an email to your current customers about your NEW VIP CLUB.
They text a code such as ‘vipentry’ to a shortcode such as ‘54545’ and are automatically subscribed to your SMS list.
Now say you send out a text message to your list with a 10% off your next order special offer. Your customers will receive this message INSTANTLY to their cell phones! You can even put a 48 hour limit on the deal so you get lots of quick sales!
It works like this:
Say today you officially started a special, exclusive VIP discount club for your customers that costs $9.95 to enter the special club.
Your VIP Club JUST opened as soon as you opened this email.
Then, you decide to waive the $9.95 fee….
Every time someones grabs a meal from you guys, you and your staff say, “Would you like to join our VIP Discount Club for exclusive offers and free stuff? ”
The price was $9.95 to join the club but if you join today it’s free!”
Your customers jump on the opportunity to join…
So you say, “All you have to do to join the club is text “pizzadeals” to “54545”.
When they text in, their information is automatically saved in your list online.
So say you build 400 people on your list.
One day you send out a mass-text to your list of 400 people with one click of the mouse…
“Come in within 48 hours and show this text to get a free soda with an order of a LRG pizza!”
Customers get the text instantly.
Say only 100 people come in to get the deal and buy a $12 LARGE pizza.
100 X $12 = $1200 bucks in 2 days… that you wouldn’t have had.
