SMS Reminders, Notifications & Confirmations

Does your business require you to send appointment reminders, notifications, alerts or confirmations? Use Main Street Contact to effectively communicate with your customers professionally and instantly.

Consider the following examples of various templates which can be customised to include details relevant to your business and customers.

Appointment Reminders

A reminder adds value as it outlines what is expected of your customers, giving them personalised information and helping you reduce last minute cancellations and missed appointments. Key details to include are the appointment date and time, location (optional), your name and/or business name, and contact phone number.

Reminder: Your hair appointment with Carlo is tomorrow at 2 PM. Super Hair Salon, 905-444-9999.

Notifications and Alerts

Notifications and alerts are the most accessible use of SMS messaging because of the immediacy and direct nature of a text message. Arrival and order update notifications give the customer essential information such as the time of arrival or delivery address. Key details in an urgent and non-urgent text alert are also delivered effectively via SMS messaging making instant connections possible with large groups to communicate time-sensitive information.

A confirmation message summarises a recent interaction with your customer, giving them an indication that an action has been acknowledged, completed and processed. This establishes a further link with your customer, providing key details regarding the transaction, your company name or website link and an appreciation for their business.
