Starting a business can be one of the most challenging yet rewarding undertakings. There is so much to get done and so much competition in your area of business- so how do you set yourself apart from your competitors? How do you become the first choice on a consumer’s list for the product or service you provide? Text and voice message marketing is the way to go!
Statistics show that most people prefer to be contacted via text rather than email or telephone. The numbers also show that 98% of text messages will be read and in turn have a higher conversion rate into a sale or a lead. How amazing is that?
A top priority in starting a business is getting loyal customers. Text and voice messaging can help you to build that customer base. Statistics show that repeat customers are 67% more likely to spend than first-time customers. You can use SMS and voice messages to send promotions and deals to build a loyalty program.
Encourage customers to opt-in for SMS and offer extra benefits if they do. For example, “OPT-IN TO RECEIVE 25% OFF YOUR NEXT PURCHASE!” Statistically, 77% of consumers use their phones to search for an item online so having easy access to their promotions through the same device makes that purchase even easier.
