SMS Marketing

SMS Marketing

SMS stands for Short Message Service and is the most widely used type of text messaging. With a SMS, you can send a message of up to 160 characters to another device. Longer messages can be split up into several parts. Most cell phones support this type of text messaging, and sending a SMS is usually very cheap.

Consider this. Almost 100 percent of New Zealanders have cell phones, and 73 percent say it’s their most-used form of technology.

Most used! More than computers. More than television. More than a stereo. That’s pretty remarkable for such a new technology. In fact, New Zealanders and Australians have adopted cell phones faster than any other household appliance.

2 things that are never ignored: A text message and a baby crying!

Why is SMS marketing so useful for a business?

All your customers carry a mobile phone and consumers have an amazingly high level of engagement when it comes to messages sent to their phones. How amazing? 97% of all text messages are opened by recipients, and almost all of them, 95–98 % are read within minutes.

That’s better than any other medium. Compare this to emails. Figures released by Mailchimp (one of the largest email marketing companies in the world) show that email open rates peak at about 30% and average rates are below 20%.

There are many ways to use an SMS campaign, from sales messages, to reminders to mobile coupons. The limit is usually just your imagination.

Example: Text the keyword FINDME to 8808 (texts cost 50c)
