Include text messaging in your automation strategy to grow your business.
Your SMS subscribers tend to be more loyal and engaged because they selectively choose which brands to receive text messages from. This makes text messaging a great way to communicate with your customers – and it doesn’t hurt that text messages are typically read within 5 minutes of being sent!
You are more likely to receive immediate action when sending a text message, so add it to your automation strategy and combine it with other channels to reach your customers.
