Business Text Messaging - Stop Throwing Your Advertising Dollars Away
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Considering using business text messsaging? Use it properly and you could easily double your business. In this article I will tell you why this advertising method is imperative to the future of your business growth and how you can access it.

Here are the facts:

97% of cell phone users will not leave home without their cell phones and 90% of those people have their cell phones within three feet of them all day long.

So, what if your business is having a slow day and you decide to send out a text message to a few hundred of your subscribers offering a great discount if they come in today? And what if your text message offer gets a whopping 97% open rate within minutes of you sending it?

Do you think that could have an impact on your business? Heck yeah! That's how business text messaging works.

The simple fact is that people love text messages. They like to open them. They are non-invasive compared to phone calls. They get instant results. If you send an email you may only get a 20% open rate and it could take hours or even days for people to open and read that message. The number of people texting just keeps growing and will continue to grow. So, the fact that businesses are now able to tap into this avenue of communication with their customers is a game changer.

How To Use Text Advertising Properly:

The most important thing to remember is that your opt-in subscribers have given you something very personal - their cell phone number. Now you have to give them something very special. Don't use text advertising to send out notice of some sale that everybody and anybody has access to. Your subscribers should receive special deals and you should mention in the text that they need to show the text to get the deal - giving you instant and accurate statistics on your marketing method.

Is It Expensive?

Compared to traditional methods of advertising and considering your return on investment, text messaging is head over heels more affordable. That means that small businesses have access to this powerful tool.

You have two options...

You can find a local Mobile Specialist (try to manage your campaign for you, provide you with marketing materials such as table tents or flyers, run analytics on your subscribers, and design and send all of your text communications.

Your other option is to do it yourself with a Text Message Service. This method could save you money and can be done quickly and easily once you learn the ropes. Some services even offer 30% off your first month just for trying it out. You can't really go wrong with that.

Don't look back. Get in there and start building your list and you will see results.
