Still Not Sure about Text to Win? Your Questions Answered

In every post on this blog, we reiterate the value of text to win and SMS marketing. If you’re still not convinced, it may be because you still have unanswered questions.
Here are a few answers to some of those questions to help you decide.

Will Text to Win Work for Our Brand?

The truth is that some brands are not a good fit for SMS marketing. For example, if the majority of your target audience is made up of seniors over 65, it may be best to test the adoption or use of text messaging in your market.

On the other hand, if your brand targets Gen X, Gen Y (Millennials) or other tech-savvy groups, then SMS marketing will probably reach the majority of your audience. For these groups, text is a long-used technology, so it’s something worth looking into as you explore new ways to market your brand.

Unfortunately, there is still the perception that text to win campaigns are too difficult to set up and manage, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
