Simply put, SMS (short message service) is text message marketing. Businesses of all kinds use text marketing to quickly, inexpensively, and effectively reach their customers with a short message to drive sales, sign ups, send out surveys, reminders, and more.


Globally people check their phones 80 times per day, meaning that your messages are very likely to go unnoticed. In addition, SMS marketing has an impressive open rate and a reported 32% of people respond to SMS offers. Text message marketing is an effective marketing tactic when used strategically.

Texted coupons are 10 times more likely to be redeemed than traditional coupons, and because text messages can be used for last-minute deals or specials, your chance of boosting sales increases.

It is very important to follow the laws regarding SMS marketing. You must have express permission from each member of your text messaging list in order to send them messages.

If there’s something in it for the would-be subscriber, your chances of an opt-in are greater, such as offering a discount code for new signups.
