Multi-channel marketing is a must have for every B2C business in 2022. Nothing is more annoying than having various marketing suppliers, different login details, multiple invoices to pay etc. Streamline marketing efforts and combine Email and SMS marketing under one easy-to-use multi-channel platform. Read more below to find out why email and SMS are still the most powerful forms of marketing and what we can do to support your business.
Why Email Marketing?
Did you know that email marketing has 4x more organic reach compared to social media posts as well as one of the highest ROIs? Emails are a great way to reach people and allow them to read your content on their own time.
This marketing format allows for full personalization since you have the space and freedom to customise your HTML email however you like. There isn’t a strict character limit so your message can be as long or as short as you wish. Customise further by adding images, links, attachments, files, videos, and more. So, you have the opportunity to make emails dynamic and engaging, attracting even more customers.
Why SMS Marketing?
SMS is another traditional marketing technique that hasn’t lost its charm even in the age of social media. The average open rate of an SMS is a staggering 98%, meaning you’re almost guaranteed the recipient will receive and read the message! SMS messages are fast and easy. With a small 160 character limit per SMS, you can get straight to the point and go on to tell your customers about a deal or offer.
SMS messages have another great benefit, they pop up on a phone screen immediately with your ‘Brand Name’. This means SMS messages allow you to offer time-sensitive deals that last a few hours since an SMS text will be read immediately compared to an email that is only read when a person opens the email. Include a short URL link within the SMS text message allows customers to effortlessly navigate to your online shop.
Even though email marketing is amazing for all the reasons described above, there is still a small chance that an email you send up may end up in the junk folder. This risk is non existent for SMS messages, so you can be assured that you aren’t wasting your efforts on a message that may not be read.
