Did you know that 97% of people will open a text and read it IMMEDIATELY after receiving it? That’s why mobile marketing services like TextAlertz are the best way to reach your customers. However, there are certain things to take into consideration before sending out a message. Here are some of the most important things to consider before sending a message out:
TIME ZONE: Just because it’s 12 PM where you are doesn’t mean it’s 12 PM where your customers are! ALWAYS take time zones into consideration when you’re sending a message out. You wouldn’t want to receive a message at 7 AM when you’re still sleeping, would you? Neither do your customers. Keeping your customers informed is important, but not annoying them is even more important!
PAY ATTENTION TO OPT-OUTS: You’ve noticed you haven’t been getting a response – after a closer look, you notice your list of recipients has decreased. The most important thing you can do if this happens is to look at your past messages. What’s working? What isn’t working? Take a look at the number of opt-outs after each message. Always make sure you’re adapting to what people want. If something doesn’t work, get rid of it. If something is working, improve it!
MONITOR MESSAGES THAT ARE SENT OUT: Just because you’ve sent the message out doesn’t mean that your customers received it. Always make sure your texts are being sent out and immediately respond to any technical issues that may occur. You wouldn’t want your customers to miss a special offer because of something simple as a technical issue, would you?
