How Brands Boost Competitiveness Through SMS Marketing
You might have read these claims already: that SMS marketing is on the rise again despite the availability of instant messaging platforms such as WhatsApp and LINE. That can help brands leverage their presence since text messages have a 98 percent open rate. Another advantage of text marketing, they say, is that it stands conveniently somewhere between the more intrusive phone calls and the more distant e-mails, helping brands engage in an intimate way with their audience, especially for the homebound people who have become more attached to their phones to conduct their activities remotely amid the COVID-19 pandemic. With all these advantages combined, text marketing can help businesses boost their competitiveness.
Yet, you might still find yourself skeptical, thinking that maybe all this buzz is nothing but a fad, seeking examples on how text marketing can specifically contribute to brands’ business performance. If this is the case for you, then stay tuned with this article right through the end, as we might have some case studies which can finally convince you about the efficacy of text marketing.
