How to Run a Successful SMS Campaign?
Here is a detailed guide on how to increase customer engagement and run a successful SMS campaign for your brand:
1. Notify your customer of upcoming or running sale
Sales and discount events ensue an optimum opportunity to run an SMS campaign to engage better.
2. Holiday or Upcoming Festive Promo Alert
Everybody enjoys a good and relaxing holiday, and to ruin the fun of such a day will prove disengagement with the customer.
3. Use of an image to add versatility to SMS
Images shed new light on the boring text format, and it helps to upscale customer engagement.
4. Prioritize Returning Customers
New customers are crucial for the growth of any company but initiating registration of a new customer requires more capital than retaining and catering to a returning customer.
By adhering to the above methods of creating an SMS campaign, brands can utilize the strength of SMS text messaging to initiate better lead generation, customer interaction, and better reach in time-sensitive scenarios.
