Text Messaging for Sales

SMS For Sales Teams

Salesmen know that following up with potential customers can be hard work. Playing phone tag is unproductive and emails go unread for a variety of reasons. Luckily, there is a great solution: texting!

sms marketing is the perfect lead nurturing tool as it allows you to keep up with leads and gather more information quickly, and with an integrated and automated solution you can keep your sales team focused on what they do best: closing deals.

    Have One-on-One Conversations

    Besides being a quick way to contact someone wanting specific pricing or help, Sales texting can reach people anywhere. In the past, people had to sit by the phone, especially as a deal was in the final stages of closing. Texting for sales makes it easy to multitask or schedule a demo. You can also answer any quick questions they have faster than email with a simple two-way or landline text message.

    Follow Up With Leads

    Following up with contacts can be tricky, but you also don’t want to seem too pushy. With texting having a read rate of 98%, you can be sure that your messages regarding new products or services and appointment reminders will be seen, and in turn your response rates will soar with follow up text software for sales. SMS messages are a perfect way to keep up with contacts that may not have been ready for your services.

    For example, if a potential lead doesn’t have the budget this quarter, but is interested in your services later on, you can send periodic reminders via text messaging. Once they are ready to discuss your product or service, you can follow up effectively since you have an established relationship and know that you are always available if they have further questions about your service.

    Schedule Appointments

    Mistakes happen. Clients forget appointments. You sometimes forget appointments that were not entered in your calendar correctly. A great way to minimize the frequency of these mistakes is to send a couple texts confirming details of a meeting. With automated reminders you can send contacts reminders so they are never late and your reps never miss another sales meeting again.

    Upsell More Effectively

    Text messaging for sales is the perfect method for upselling to existing customers as it puts less pressure than a phone call. Text customers the occasional offer about new products or give them discounted rates on a more expensive plan. The best way to upsell is to make sure your current customers are satisfied.

    Periodically and informally check in to make sure they are satisfied with your product or service and follow up quickly if they have any complaints. Keeping the line of communication open with your current customers is essential to the upsell, as they expect personalized outreach and offers relevant to them and their sector.

    Use SMS Messaging For Follow Up

    You may not necessarily want to approach a prospect with a text first, but sending an SMS sales message or a series of texts after you’ve already made contact can be a good way to remind them of who you are and what you have to offer. Without pushing them hard, your texts can reinforce what you have already discussed. If you previously gave your prospect something to read, such as paperwork, emails or links, you can easily send them a text to check if they have any questions. And you aren’t just limited to texting, you can still email your clients.

    One study showed that leads who received text messages during the sales process converted 40 percent more than leads that didn’t receive texts. You also can put together a simple scheduling campaign of texting for a specific client or offer. You can set a workflow with different details and a timeline designed to make sure your clients have everything they need to understand your products and services.
