Mobile Marketing-A Must to Connect with Your Customers

If you are unsure about mobile marketing, or marketing to cell phones, and you have a small business, particularly a retail business or one that entails appointments, this is definitely something you should look into.  This is how it works. You place a sign in your store or on the bottom of your appointment card that says something like “Join our VIP Mobile List: Text “Joe’s Pizzeria” to “90210”. Once they do that, their cell phone number will be added to your list. Once you have a list you can use it to run instant promotions, like say it’s raining out and your pizza shop is empty. You can send a text to everyone who has opted-in with a coupon for a free soda with the purchase of a slice of pizza, good for lunch today only.  The text is instantly delivered to the cell phones of your most loyal customers who are probably trying to figure out what to do for lunch so they come in and your restaurant is filled on a rainy day.

For small business owners who have a service for which your customers schedule an appointment, you can send reminder texts to your customers so they don’t miss their appointments. You can also send a reminder to them that it’s been awhile since they’ve been in so give a call and make an appointment, and your phone number is right in the text so all they have to do is click on it and make the appointment.

If you are still unsure whether this will work for you, schedule an appointment with me and we can discuss the possibilities.
