Take a look at your messages before you send them in just the same way you would preview an email.
Send personalised text messages
Personalise your text messages to increase your open rate. For example, instead of saying just ‘Hello’ why not use your contacts name instead, like ‘Hello Peter’.
Virtual numbers are a great way to capture contact details when there is no internet access. For example setup a competition that asks people to SMS their email and first name to 0400 000 000. The system will add these contacts to your database just like a webform.
Purchase credits in system
Pre-purchase credits to send SMS when you need to.
Potential contacts can even subscribe to your database or update their details via a text message. How clever is that?
Choose how you collect responses
When you think about using SMS marketing, do you visualise all the replies going to your personal mobile? If you do, you should know this; when your clients contact you via SMS (i.e. updating their details), you can choose to collect their responses via your mobile phone number or directly into your database.
Quick send SMS
It doesn’t matter if your contacts details are not already in your database. For times when you need to send a quick SMS (like sending a message to staff) you can type in your message, their mobile number and hit send.
