Sending Text SMS Coupons
Sending coupons by text pulls 10 times more response than coupons delivered in the mail or newspapers. It's easier, less expensive, and more effective than any other medium -- that's why text coupons are growing faster than any other segment of the marketing/advertising industry.
If you want to get your coupons to produce results, there is no more effective way than texting. Text coupons are now considered the gold standard in the marketing world and have become a game-changer regarding how retail and restaurant business is conducted. One mobile marketing agency called text coupons the "the new disruptor" because it has emerged on the scene faster than any other new medium over the past 90 years. Text couponing will grow 30% over the next two years and by 2013, advertisers will be spending over $10 Billion a year on text or "mobile marketing."
No need to purchase hardware or software -- the text coupon system is already in place and ready to use. Just send your text messages from your secured web portal.
Don't worry about spending thousands of dollars on fancy SMS (short message service) texting equipment or software. Everything you need is ready to go and online. You can upload your opt-in mobile phone numbers, or our system can collect them automatically with online forms on your website. Or you can compile your list by having contacts text a keyword that you advertise through your regular marketing channels. Whatever combination you choose, you can achieve results without investing in any hardware or expensive software.
Everyone has a cell phone and can receive your text coupons instantly.
Some businesses send coupons via email. That's fine, but customers and prospects won't get it until they sit in front of computer, if they even check their email at all. And they may not have a printer to print it out either.
Texting is different because people "wear" their mobile phones which are always within reach. Let's face it, there are three times more mobile cell phones in the United States than there are televisions. Nearly 80% of the entire population, including children, have cell phones and nearly 100% of those people can receive text messages and coupons. Many people have more than one mobile device. Unlike email, newspapers or magazines, 95% of the people who receive text messages actually read them.
Some examples of text coupons that work:
"Grab a friend and have lunch today at Curly's. Show this message to your waiter and get 2 drinks for price of 1."
"Happy Hour at Granny's today. Women drink free from 4-5pm. Show this coupon."
"Secret sale today from 3-6pm. Show this text to get 30% off all clothing at Lew's."
"The weekend is almost here. Get 25% discount on all accessories at Woolmores on Saturday."
"25% off haircut and color at Janice's on Thurs. and Fri. Call 716-555-1212 for appt. now."
"Making way for new season. Buy one blouse, get one free at Lamperts today and tomorrow."
