SMS, Text - call it whatever you want, it can pack a powerful punch when it comes to marketing your business. With an average open rate of 98% (that’s right) and a 12% YoY growth rate in terms of new subscribers, it’s no wonder 96% of marketers swear by SMS marketing.
So, you just grab your phone and start typing… right? Not so fast - the best SMS marketing is just as nuanced as its email counterpart and requires the right know-how and experience to yield stellar results. Keep reading to discover how CodeCrew’s expert SMS marketing services can skyrocket your ROI.
With so many SMS marketing platforms out there, you’d be forgiven for not knowing where to start. Luckily, we’ve simplified the process by highlighting the three main players for you:
Klaviyo Easy to use with a simple text editor. With Klaviyo SMS marketing, you can add images, emojis, and coupons with MMS while tracking each SMS or MMS’s performance.
Attentive Slightly more expensive than Klaviyo, but you get built-in compliance checks and a lot more add-ons. Attentive SMS marketing is more suited for established companies with a larger marketing budget.
Twilio The gold standard in text-based marketing with Whatsapp integrated. The interface is aimed towards tech-savvy users, so Twilio SMS marketing is definitely not suited for first-timers or novices.
Choosing the right ESP (Email Service Provider) for your specific business is vital, as no two are exactly the same. This is also true when it comes to choosing an SMS service provider.
