SMS marketing has lots of advantages over other types of marketing and there are many ways it can be leveraged to provide great results.
One big advantage of SMS marketing is that it stands out. The simple fact of the matter is that the web is badly over-saturated with marketing messages. We are constantly bombarded by e-mails, by banner ads and by PPC which makes it that much harder for advertisers to stand out. With SMS marketing however you will stand out by reaching your audience on their mobile where they are far less used to receiving marketing messages.
Another huge advantage of SMS marketing is that it allows you to reach your audience at a specific time and even based on their location. Location-based SMS marketing goes as far as to allow businesses to message customers as they pass their stores which has a huge potential for generating sales.
With any SMS marketing though, you will be able to choose exactly when your audience see your messages – because we always have our mobiles on us. This ensures that you can approach your specific audience exactly when they’ll be most receptive to your message. No longer are you waiting for your audience to come to you – you are reaching them right in their pockets.
