If I had a dollar for every customer that says they hate getting text ads so they don’t want their customers’ texts for a campaign …
It really doesn’t matter what you like. And believe me, ONLY those that think there will be an incentive to give you their cell phone numbers will do it. And provided you do it legally, there is NO reason to worry about breaking spam laws.
Text is awesome. Literally, 95% of your customers will see the text in the first 5 minutes you send it. Compared to any other known ad platform … well, it is a no brainer.
Your “deal” loving customers will love to get your texts if they are focused on their needs … namely, they like you and you have a deal for them. AND, you will have an amazing up-sell platform.
We do text databases super inexpensive because we wrote our own SMS program.
