Squashing the Text Marketing Myths
We’ve done our research on why businesses have said “No” to text marketing and we came across a few misunderstandings. As it is our job to educate, let’s clear the air surrounding these reasons.
- No one wants to receive text messages from a business.
We get it. Text messaging is personal. Think about who you text…friends, family, babysitters, etc… Many people are very cautious about who they give their cell phone number to so it’s important to keep your subscriber’s trust by offering content with value and exclusivity. According to Digital Marketing Magazine, about 75% of people want to receive offers sent via text message.
- I can do the same with social media.
Social media is a great tool and we use it too! However, getting your message out to all of your followers can be a hard and daunting task. Roughly 3% of your Facebook followers see your post and to get more eyes on your message, you have to pay for it! Over 90% of all text messages are opened within the first five minutes of receipt. No other marketing method can deliver those kind of numbers.
- I can’t afford to add this to my marketing budget.
Marketing in general can be costly. Add up all the different programs you pay extra for and the last thing you want to do is add more money to the mix.
