SMS marketing campaigns are the perfect way for businesses to have instant direct communication with their customers. There are several aspects to ensuring your campaigns are effective, ranging from the content of your messages, the recipients and the time you choose to send out your text.
Communicating and reconnecting with customers is an essential part of bouncing back from the COVID-19 lockdown for businesses. For a long period of time marketing came to a halt, businesses were closed and the communication was lost between industry and consumer.
The FireText SMS Platform is packed with awesome features, that we are continuously developing in order to ensure your business can get the most out of your SMS campaigns. As a company, we believe personalisation is the key to a successful campaign as it ensures you’re engaging with your customers and standing out from competitors.
