Grow Your Business with SMS Marketing

  • Increased Site Traffic
  • Increased Offer Redemption
  • Increased Brand Awareness
  • Increased Customer Engagement

What do these benefits have in common? Every single one increases revenue.

As mentioned, one of the keys for developing a successful text marketing campaign for your retail store, is leveraging every possible tool to build and grow your database of opted-in subscribers.  Some recommended ways to accomplish this:

  • Post a text club call to action close to the POS system.  In today’s world, everyone loves and expects immediate gratification.  Seeing a call to action graphic such as the one provided in the photo will spark immediate interest and most often, participation.
  • Send out an e-mail blast with instructions on how to join the text club.
  • Post a text to join graphic on your retail store’s social media pages.
  • Instruct staff to verbally promote your store’s text club.  They can’t join if they aren’t aware.

One often overlooked benefit of retail stores using text marketing is the ability to request store and product reviews.  With Text2VIP’s Polling Campaign you can send an SMS to your subscriber lists asking them to reply with their recent product or customer service experience or include a link for them to easily post on their own.

With most text message marketing retail campaigns would end there. However, one of the special features of the Text2VIP platform includes the ability to send and receive SMS and MMS on a one-off basis from consumers.  This two way conversation takes place like a normal SMS conversation, however, the messages you receive and send are all from a toll-free number, never revealing the business owners’ personal number.
