Boost Holiday Sales with SMS Mobile Marketing

If your retail business or restaurant hasn’t begun to use mobile marketing yet, you might as well plan on giving away extra holiday income to your competitors who do use mobile marketing.

“Put your message where the eyes are.”

Thanks to the popularity of today’s smart phones, marketing experts are predicting that more holiday shopping than ever will take place on the mobile phone.

Newspapers and television advertising is expensive and is getting harder and harder to get a good Return on Investment. Email campaigns just aren’t effective anymore with an open-rate of marketing emails between 10-20% on average. Text messages on the other hand are opened 97% of the time and 83% within the first hour!

This means that if you’re not using SMS mobile marketing to promote your advertising messages that you’re not getting your marketing messages in front of your audience as often as you think.

So how can your company harness the power of text message advertising in time for the holiday rush?

Sign-up for Mobile Media services and start your mobile campaign in September to build more brand awareness during these important months and to generate more sales in December.
Offer incentives and discounts for the consumers who opt-in to your text messages. Most people this holiday season will be on the lookout for  great deals – and if your texts deliver on your promise, your holiday opt-in rates will skyrocket
Promote your SMS Mobile program on your social media sites, in your location with signs and banners, on your website, on YouTube and get the word out now.

Think about this: If you’re a retail store- how powerful would it be to send out text message incentives to your customers to tell them about extra discounts and perks they get when they’re out holiday shopping?

If you’re a restaurant who sells gift certificates, why not promote them via SMS text marketing and give your loyal customers extra incentives to buy gift certificates at a discount, or ask them to drop by after a long day of holiday shopping to have a free drink?

The marketing possibilities are endless. You can get text messaging services for your retail shop or restaurant for as little as .95 a month for an unlimited number of subscribers and to send up to 2,000 text messages each month.
