What is bulk SMS marketing?

Bulk SMS marketing is a mode of digital communication where businesses communicate with their contact database through Short Message Service (SMS). Messages of up to 160 characters can be sent to large volumes of people from all different geographic locations in a matter of seconds via an SMS gateway. With more phones in the world than people, bulk SMS marketing has become one of the most effective ways for businesses to reach their desired audience.

Why should you use SMS direct marketing?

Many businesses find that SMS direct marketing is an effective way to communicate with their customers. In today’s society, people have a very strong attachment to their phones. Our whole lives have become dependent on these pocket-sized supercomputers. We use them to communicate with our friends and family, we receive important work communications and we receive social validation via likes and comments. Each time our mobile devices vibrate or chime, we reach for it as fast as we can. As a result, SMS marketing messages have an extremely high open rate, reaching percentages as high as 98%.

SMS marketing allows marketers, sales professionals and customer service agents to immediately reach their customers in a direct and personalised way. SMS marketing is a cost effective way to generate brand awareness and to facilitate customer engagement, particularly with its two-way conversation capabilities.
