SMS Marketing list?

by WillDL 12 replies
Has anyone ever considered building an SMS list to market their IM products to? I haven't and don't know if it would work, but the thought intrigues me.

    I have and have seen many others use it successfully as well (as well as others who haven't used it the best way). Some people treat it the same as e-mail, which I don't believe is the best way to go about it.

    I find it best for announcing special deals / discounts, alerting them to the start or end of a deal, alerting them to new webinars, sending reminders to stuff they signed up for like webinars, etc..

    If you're trying to send a promo once or twice a day each and every day, that's something that might be better suited for e-mail (although I'm sure there are plenty of exceptions), but the above I've seen work great.

    I also run MobileAutoresponder.com which has options for online mobile lead generation as well as offline lead generation (all the others I've seen only do short codes and the like whereas we have those plus online lead capture forms for mobile numbers which makes a huge difference for online campaigns), so feel free to check it out.

      Thanks,

    The answer is yes. But you have to know that mobile is highly localized and if you are using stuff like short codes vs. long codes and advertise your optin pages online....

    Well, people outside of the USA will not be able to optin to your list.

    Long codes are better for a more international audience. Short codes are great for USA based promotions.....

    Hey Clifton,

    Should be working fine. Not sure if maybe you're typing it in wrong or if something else is up, as several free trial sign-ups happened just now fine and throughout the day.

    If you're still not sure, you can send an e-mail to support at support [at] mobileautoresponder.com or you can hit me up personally at briankoz [at] gmail.com and I'll get someone to check it out asap for you (e-mail them the code that you were using and what package you were trying to sign up for).

    Take care,

    Brian
