If you use SMS or email - or better yet, both - as marketing channels, you set up your message, send it out and analyse the results. But how do you improve that message for better results the next time you send out your SMS/email? A lot of businesses don’t use SMS/email marketing to its full potential, as they don’t always use the right techniques to improve the open- or conversion rates of their marketing messages. Once you know how to get started with the conversion optimisation of your SMS/email marketing campaigns, you will be able to significantly increase your conversion rate and to utilise your marketing channels to their full potential.
SMS is something we all know. It has been part of our lives for decades. Therefore, SMS might come across as old, but it has found a renewed purpose. It might potentially change the way we text forever. Let’s see how we get to SMS 2.0.
Business messaging in 2020 will be quite different from what you’re used to. Different, both from a business and a consumer perspective. Questions raised on both ends are “Will you notice?” and “Will it matter?”. In both cases the answer is: “Yes, it will!” And this is how.
From the very beginning of business, marketers have reached out to their community to create demand for their products and services. The larger the group of people you can reach in one placement, the more value you can get from a certain channel. The reach of marketing channels has been expanding over time; starting with newspaper ads and local radio reaching a region to new ad networks such as Facebook and Google reaching half the globe. And not only the reach is expanding, the insights into the audience, as measured in actual data about the individuals, is growing. Using this information, you can create very specific segmentations that will allow marketers to target those profiles that are highly relevant and receptive to your information.
You live in the age of unlimited possibilities when it comes to customer contact. With the digitalization of the world you are able to build up a very detailed profile of your customer and get to ‘know’ your consumer very well. It’s like how the local grocery shop owner used to know his customer in person, but now on massive scale. And that’s a very good thing I think. It closes the gap between traditional quality oriented shops and online price fighters. You can add more value to the consumers by understanding their needs, and consumers are willing to pay more for better fitting services and products.
