When business is slow, you might have merchandise to move, a special event to publicize, or a new product or service you need to promote, an opt-in text marketing campaign can be a very effective digital marketing tool.
Here are some tips for doing it well:
1. Make it short, specific, and very targeted. “Strapless red slippers 50% off at Dorothy’s Shoe Store. Today only. Open late: 7:00 pm.”
2. Be sure to send text messages only to an opt-in list. Besides keeping you compliant, this also helps guarantee that your texting will get results, since you’re only texting people who are interested.
3. Make it easy. There are a number of programs available that take your message and send it out to your whole list.
