TEXT MARKETING – THE NEW FRONTIER   – MOBILE MARKETING, NEW TEXT  MARKETING

You may have noticed, recently, the addition of   5 or 6 -digit  short code  plus   keywords ,   eg  SONICF  (as pictured here) in print advertising.   Get ready to see more and more of this,   just as it was when you first started seeing email addresses and URLs some 10-15 years ago. Text marketing is destined to become the new  email advertising, only even more successful than  email ever was. Why?                    Cell phones are the one thing that people are in contact with virtually 24 hours, ie you always have a captive audience and readership is currently averaging 97%! (Email is 1-7%)

HOW IT WORKS?  Simple.

1) The advertiser is assigned a  ˜short code  (usually five digits, e.g 12345 ) and a relevant keyword, e.g. ˜COUPON ‘

2)   LIST BUILDING:   We run a campaign for the advertiser in various media, inviting people interested in receiving FREE Coupons and relevant info to   ˜text message  said keyword to the  aforementioned  ˜short code 

3)   COUPON TEXTING: Once a sufficient ‘customer list has been  ˜captured  we begin a series ˜ campaign   of weekly (or any time frame) text messages. This includes sending a short text message, usually involving some discount offer or event and / or an actual coupon which the cell phone user simply uploads and shows the business clerk so as to receive the discount in question OR the text link can take  one to a website for   online ordering .
