i have been reading so much into SMS MARKETING and i can see this being the future on marketing for local businesses.
Im new to this so im really still learning but i would like to give this a test drive. Im in the UK (Northern Ireland) I have not came across this very often to be honest i have only seen DOMINO's using this.
Could someone recommend the best provider in the UK. I have read alot of threads saying LimeCellular but read this morning they are not even based in the States they have a virtual office their just. What are you thought of the different companies available in the UK.
I do not have a massive budget so i dont want to have to pump in loads of cash to start with. Like i said i only want to test drive the sms marketing and i think i will try it with maybe my inlaws garden centre but it might not be the best type of business to test drive this in.
I would also like to ask your opinions on the best way to run an sms campaign for local businesses. I was thinking each business having their own campaign running with there own offers OR for each area im offering this in have a list of people in that area then offer businesses to send SMS Offers to 1 list. So say i started a list for example LISBURN VIP the i approach local businesses in this area and offer them to promote to LISBURN VIP list and charge them per month 7 companies in the area all messaging to the list once a week on their designated day. IM JUST SPECULATING HERE LOOKING ADVICE.
What would your thought be on this.
