Mobile marketing: What’s in it for the consumer?

Small businesses ranging from restaurants to retailers and local entertainment centers are now using text message marketing. Business owners have clear benefits for using this type of program, but what are the benefits for consumers, the ones receiving the text messages?

How consumers benefit from mobile marketing messages:

  1. It’s an easy way to get money-saving offers from favorite stores.
  2. Offers are always accessible. No coupon carrying needed.
  3. Get VIP treatment as a mobile subscriber or loyal customer.
  4. It’s easier to gain and redeem points for loyalty programs.
  5. Get instant notice of upcoming deals.
  6. Get special deals not available elsewhere.
