    personally i think any marketing content that lands into my inbox or sms folder is too spammy! especially if I didn't provide my contact. I think now that people are getting smarter you have to be a little indirect. social media and paid ads are a lot better. also reviews are a better way to spend your money. once you have a few customers - word of mouth incentives is the way to go!

    SMS marketing is a great way to get sued for violating the tcpa. I have a bunch of spam texts from guys like you guys who thought there was a shortcut and I'm suing them all now. Max damages is 3000 per call

    What do you do when receive SMS about a new taxi service or any other junk that stole your phone number? I don't read them, to be honest. CPM performs much better.

    SMS marketing is too intrusive. I said this in another post, but you'll end up turning off some of your leads.

    SMS marketing is a technique that uses permission-based text messaging to spread promotional messages.

    The goal of SMS marketing is to build a database of subscribers to increase customer loyalty. When implementing close range marketing tactics text messages are an ideal way of notifying people within your vicinity of any immediate offers, without having to use push-notification applications. More than informing your customers of upcoming deals, it can also be a great way to send reminders for upcoming events and engage your customers by polling their opinions.

    In fact for at least 60% of consumers, SMS marketing is preferred to other email marketing and push-notification services. Many delivery platforms allow for easy segmentation and management, so the most relevant text messages can be sent to those who are most likely to convert. It’s also preferable in that it tends to be less expensive when compared to other methods of distribution, making it a cost effective mobile solution.
    I am getting many sms in my phone with links so you might not face any problems.

    Now a days many people have whatsapp account or viber etc where you can send sms or message & good part is you can send them at a same time with any kind of links. SMS marketing is not the same as close range marketing.
