If you have a local business in Tyler you have likely tried telling people about it on places like Facebook. You may have even created a Facebook page and possibly a Google AdWords campaign and linked them back to your website.
Many local businesses don’t even have a website but they have still managed to set up a Facebook page because it is really easy to do.
For those of you who have managed to do some of these above basic online marketing tasks I have a great idea to improve upon what you are already doing. Try adding an SMS marketing campaign to this.
What you do is keep on doing what you’re doing but setup a text message campaign with an SMS provider and then promote this in the same places you are now and beyond.
An SMS campaign is simply a way for your customers to sign up to receive text messages to their cell phone from your business.
You can than text your customers 4 – 5 times a month to come in to receive a special deal or value without necessarily offering huge profit squeezing discounts.
Think about it, these people have opted-in to your cell phone messaging list because they love what you sell. Simply text them about what they love and attach some extra value to it.
What has been shown statistically is that 20% of the people you text will respond to your offer which ends up giving you the biggest ROI than any other form of advertising.
