Texting For Marketing Departments

While email is a proven way to reach your customers, it's effectiveness is limited. That's why more and more marketers are turning to text messaging for marketing departments in order to reach the widest possible audience. Trumpia's texting solution includes powerful targeting and automation tools that go further than common mass texting services, helping marketing teams to promote products and services and streamline their campaigns with automation.

How Text Messaging for Marketing Departments Works

  • Advertisement for a keyword to be texted to a short code to receive promotions

    Promote Products and Services Better

    SMS has an unmatched read rate of 98%, making it the most effective way to promote your agency and the brands you represent. That means texting can increase in-store traffic and revenue with mobile coupons. Trumpia's coupons can be tracked, and you can have automated reminders sent the day before they expire. This also lets you make new product announcements to all of your customers or just the ones who expressed interest in the product with our exclusive Smart Targeting.

  • SMS text conversation about event inquiry and event reminder

    Use SMS Marketing to Increase Brand Loyalty

    By having customers opt-in to your marketing campaigns, you form a bond with them that can last for years. So it's important that you don't abuse that trust, and that you only send them messages that are relevant to their favorite aspects of your brand. Getting them to opt-in can be tricky, but luckily there are always some incentives you can offer. Whether it's a mobile coupon or a full on mobile loyalty program, speaking to your customers wallets can be a great way to get them to opt in to receive your sales alerts.

    Other benefits can include letting customers know about upcoming schedule changes like new store openings or new promotions. Texts should also include details about sales that are coming up soon, new products, and popular items that are back in stock.

    Run Better Surveys

    Besides getting info about customers and their shopping habits like what they actually buy, a survey can get you more information that you can then use to better target your customers. You can let people know about the survey by sending a text, and then provide a link for them to visit.

    The survey should be mobile-friendly, since that's how most people will be ultimately taking it. If you have a service like Trumpia, our system can directly ask them the questions, and record their responses so you can better target them in the future.

    The survey should not be too long because you want your customers to actually complete it, but there's also nothing stopping you from incentivizing them. Sending a customer a coupon after they complete the survey will make them feel appreciated, and increase the likelihood of filling out surveys and visiting your stores in the future.

    Use Email Marketing with SMS

    It can seem counterintuitive to marketers to use something like email marketing when they themselves rarely ever open one of those emails. But no matter how strange it sounds, one thing is for sure: email marketing still gets results. The reason is simple: the stats show that email isn't just effective, but that it has the potential for a large ROI.

    Over 95% of business professionals use email, making it the most effective channel for business-to-business marketing. So why does this matter for email marketing? Over 85% of US adults use their email daily, meaning a well crafted marketing email can have an enormous audience. Since emails are so effective and require such a small investment, their ROI cannot be denied.

    Attract New Customers with SMS Marketing

    Text keywords are great ways to get more interested customers. All your customers need to do is text a word into your business phone number to sign up to receive your offers. They are then added to a contact list automatically, so you can send them messages about new products, sales events, and more. You can even ask customers questions once they sign up. For instance, when a new customer texts in your keyword, you can ask, "What is your favorite clothing brand?" Their answer will be captured, and when you have a sale on that brand you can send all interested customers information about the sale and a coupon to further entice them to come to your store.

    Use Texting to For Customer Service And Sales

    You don't have to pay for multiple numbers if you want to have a dedicated customer service line. You can enable (also called landline texting) your existing business phone number in order to reach the 60% of customers who would rather text than call for customer service. This has the added bonus of being far more efficient, as it allows your staff to handle multiple customer service matters at the same time instead of being stuck on long phone calls with just one customer. This also lets sales teams interact with leads and close more deals.

What Clients Are Saying About SMS For Marketing Departments

    "Trumpia's Auto Campaigns are far more efficient, especially since there is currently only one team member here who's in charge of the platform. It also makes the time in which we re-market to the individual instant, rather than waiting a full day to re-market in a bulk send."
