What is Mass Texting?
Mass texting, or also known as bulk SMS, bulk texting, or text blasting, allows individuals and businesses to send text messages to tens, hundreds or even thousands of customers, employees and supporters in a matter of minutes. Organizations across all different types of industries are using SMS messaging to seamlessly communicate with their target audiences.
Benefits of Adding Mass Texting to Your Digital Marketing Strategy
Mass texting is efficient, effective and affordable. Business mass texting services allow companies and organizations to send and receive texts right from their personal computers and mobile devices. With SendHub, you can quickly and easily send SMS messages, alerts or reminders to all of your subscribers in just a few clicks. From reaching out to hundreds of customers to over thousands, our mass texting platform is built to scale and help your business grow.
From industry giants to local nonprofits, all types of businesses and organizations are beginning to take advantage of mass texting on a daily basis. Mass texting has revolutionized digital marketing strategies and changed the way many companies communicate with their audiences. Here’s why.
Your content is catered to your audience.
Because recipients have to opt-in to your mass texting services, you can guarantee they’re interested in your content. In other words, you’ll be reaching out to existing loyal customers and potential customers, a group of people who you have already established strong relationships with.
Since SMS marketing is permission-based, you’ll have to be mindful to always abide by the compliance guidelines when mass texting. Otherwise, it can feel like an invasion of privacy and will give you and your business a bad reputation. Refer to SendHub’s blog on the Double Opt-in method and SMS compliance for more information.
You can ensure your message gets read.
When you send an email or leave a voicemail, there’s no way to tell when it will be opened. Or even worse, your email could end up in their spam folder and never get read at all. With a 98% open rate and about 90% read within the first 3 seconds of being delivered, mass texting is the most effective way to get your message across and engage with your target audience.
You can personalize your messages.
It’s important to be personable and authentic so that your message doesn’t sound spammy. When sending out bulk texts to such a large list of contacts, you should customize your messages to be engaging. From inserting the recipient’s name to the date of an upcoming appointment, you’ll be able to include details in your mass texting to make it feel extra personalized and appear as if each text was sent individually. In return, personalized messages will help increase response rates and foster healthier relationships with existing clientele.
You can easily track and manage messages.
SendHub’s inbox makes large-scale mass texting manageable. All of your outgoing and incoming messages are time stamped and archived for easy visibility and retrieval. You can track all of your conversations and have easy access to each thread. Additionally, SendHub offers analytics and reporting so that your company has the graphs, insights and usage analytics to measure the effectiveness of your mass texting marketing campaigns.
You can save time and money.
Mass texting is considerably less expensive than mailing and emailing. Not to mention how much time you’d be saving. If used right, mass texting can generate a lot of profit with very minimal costs.
SendHub has a range of custom plans to choose from and we’re happy to help you find the right one to fit your budget while meeting all of your communication needs. Check out our pricing page here for more information.
