Every business serving consumers uses a variety of ways to stay in touch such as Newspaper, email, magazines, flyers, mailings, the internet, word of mouth and more. We see these forms of staying in touch everyday. Have you noticed the volume of catalogs that shows up through the mail around the holiday seasons? These businesses are serving their customers.
Nurturing your customer base keeps you in touch with your target market and with the onset of new technology, businesses are racing to be the first to integrate mobile text marketing or SMS into their arsenal of communication methods to use with their customer base.
After looking at several SMS marketing packages, TextAlertz by 5LINX Enterprises Inc. is one that I recommend because of its easy of use, cost effectiveness, its 15 days trial period for the cost of only $1.00 and the Referral Program for account holders.
To market to your Customer base with SMS Mobile Marketing means you are meeting your customers or potential customers right where they are; on their mobile phones. You can count on a smart phone being as close as a purse, or clipped onto a belt than anyone carrying other forms of company generated advertising with them.
A business that depends on a customer base markets where they can reach them instantly. 90% of emails are never opened. 97% of text messages are read. 75% of Americans and Canadians use text messaging.
