Text Message Mobile Marketing
If you don’t have or want social media accounts for connecting with your visitors/customers, then maybe Text Message Mobile Marketing is for you.
You can use text messages in your business to send alerts about upcoming events, announce a sale or simply provide a snippet of valuable wisdom to your target market.
For small businesses, the best part of this simple mobile marketing technique is that you can do it at no cost! The account is free to establish for your business and the texts are free to send to your list, NO limit. [Your customer may have to pay to receive it, but this is clearly stated before they opt-in.]
A couple of other great features…you can schedule messages in advance, and you can send a text message alert from your mobile device or via the web. So no matter where you are, you can get a message to your customers in a timely manner.
If you are in the food business, I think this would be an ideal way to get people in during a slow day. Just shoot out a message and offer a deal on drink or food for that day only and you’ll drum up some instant business!
