Why is SMS message marketing important?

SMS marketing is an underutilized channel that has proven itself to be incredibly effective. Text messages provide instant and engaging content that is delivered to customers in mere moments.

The importance of SMS message marketing cannot be understated as it outperforms other channels such as emails or ads. It’s even more effective when combined with other channels commonly used in business communication.

6.

What numbers can I use for business text messaging?

A lot of different numbers can be used for business text messaging as it is completely up to the discretion of the company. They can use toll-free numbers, dedicated numbers, and even use the business name as a “number”.

Yes. Text messages have powerful deliverability where you can send a message to any part of the world reliably in mere seconds, including prospects who have no access to the internet at all.

MMS stands for ‘Multimedia Messaging Service’ while SMS is an abbreviation for ‘Short Message Service’.

While SMS can only carry up to 160 chars (in case of Sender, up to 306 chars) of text and links, an MMS is more media-rich allowing pictures, GIFs, and even video.

If the SMS vs MMS debate is raging in your mind, go with plain text SMS messages which are easier on the eyes apart from coming across as more trusted by subscribers.

You can use SMS notifications to alert your monthly SaaS users about the need to renew their subscriptions.

The possibilities are truly limitless.
