Google, the Internet behemoth, just recently purchased a mobile marketing company for $750,000,000. This should clearly tell business owners both online and offline that mobile advertising should no longer be ignored.
Companies, charities, organizations and churches can now have access to the most thorough and cost-effective marketing tool to discreetly send out their marketing messages, real estate listings, lending interest rates or church notices to cell phones, smartphones, laptops and iPads.
Although many feel that mobile marketing using this newer concept of SMS text messaging may not be all that flashy, it definitely provides a direct, one-on-one way of communicating between the consumer and seller as well as members and their church.
What is really exciting about SMS text messages and mobile marketing is that it goes hand in hand so perfectly with Internet, print and video marketing. Not to mention the unequalled response rates Internet marketers and small business owners are experiencing.
One reason for the higher response rate is that consumers have to opt-in to receive the marketing or church related information that they are seeking. This is true permission based marketing which avoids spam and creates a newly formed direct communication channel.
But what is truly amazing is that business owners who utilize SMS marketing by sending text messages are getting a monetary return of 13 to 41 percent in profits.
Those profit surges may sound unbelievable but they are indeed real since close to 90 percent of all SMS text messages are read by the consumer usually within minutes of receiving the alert. Overall, close to 99 percent of texting will be read within a couple of hours.
Of course, the smart business owner will jump on this proven marketing tool that communicates directly with the end user or customer. There will be those who will not utilize this advertising media but will in the end lose profits to their competitor as the selling venue is changing thanks to technology.
The good news is that you do not have to have the budget of a million dollar corporation to utilize SMS text messages. This advertising platform is now affordable for America’s business owners both online and offline to try and use.
This low cost of utilizing SMS text messages (27 cents per day) is an incredible value for the small business owner considering the fact that approximately 52,000 text messages are sent every second of the day.
SMS marketing will definitely take your business whether offline or online to the next profit level. Some of these marketing platforms will do some of your advertising automatically via mobile websites and apps and others will actually build a database of texting clients for you.
Successful companies are already using this marketing service and have been for years. You’ve probably heard of some of these companies like Target, McDonalds, JC Penny, Coca-Cola and American Idol who helped started this communication craze. Companies like KWIKTEXT can help you get started and best of all, do so inexpensively.
