Mobile Marketing, Text Message Marketing, Mobile Clubs, Mobile Customer Loyalty programs

are incredibly effective in today’s instant pleasure world. In this day and age of tight budgets and slim margins merchants need a forward thinking and affordable way to engage their current clients and encourage return visits while attracting new repeat customers. Many merchants have embraced marketing tools such as email, direct mail, Internet advertising and even social media marketing to promote their businesses, which I think is great. The challenge comes with the time and money invested into these programs and the potentially low response rates that are achieved with them. This is where a Text Message Marketing program can come into play as an efficient and effective customer retention and marketing tool. Mobile Marketing is an affordable and effective option that some of the countries largest radio station networks, non-profit organizations, and restaurant chains utilize. Now your business, no matter the size, can compete on the same level!

Text Message Marketing programs are NOT spam or “cold messaging.”

They are Opt-In customer loyalty programs that your clients ask to join. For instance you can encourage them to “Text ‘ABCXYZ’ to ’12345′ to be a part of your extreme savings club” and Whalla they will now receive your notifications that they can Opt-Out of any time they wish. Did you know that 98% of text messages are read regardless of content and that if not over used will appreciate you thinking of them.

For instance:
-Imagine trying to figure out where to go for dinner when a timely mobile marketing message arrives on your phone offering you a free appetizer, drink, or other promotion to one of your favorite restaurants….

-While you are last-minute shopping during the holidays with no idea what to buy and a handy list of gift ideas appears on your phone…

-Maybe your Spring allergies are just kicking in and you get a text from your favorite health and wellness store offering 20% off on natural allergy medications…Well you get the idea.

that your business can easily and effectively use to attract new business while retaining your current, loyal client base and increasing sales.
