However, in the face of increased competition, how can businesses effectively cut through the noise and truly stand out with SMS this Black Friday? In this article, we will delve into the ways in which mobile landing pages can augment SMS marketing, elevating engagement and conversion rates, ultimately making the Black Friday sales season even more convenient for businesses and consumers.

Why Utilise SMS this Black Friday?

While SMS may seem outdated in the era of modern messaging platforms like WhatsApp and Instagram, it continues to be a highly effective channel for reaching and engaging with customers. According to Shopify's global highlights from 2022, a remarkable 73% of Black Friday sales occurred through mobile devices. This statistic underscores the enduring relevance of SMS as a vital communication channel.

Contemporary consumers, particularly Gen Z shoppers, gravitate towards media-rich, visual messaging channels like WhatsApp, which enhance the overall shopping experience. The incorporation of visual elements has become an expectation. Therefore, how can brands replicate these immersive experiences and match the visual effects offered by platforms like WhatsApp via SMS?

Pages, a component of the Mobile Marketing Cloud, is a mobile landing page builder designed to help you derive genuine value from your marketing campaigns. With Pages, you can craft feature-rich, content-driven mobile landing pages explicitly crafted to engage and motivate customers to take action.
