The aftermath of Christmas not only brings with it a craze of cleaning up and goodbyes to relatives, but also the big thought of the New Year and what it’s going to bring with it.
Whether it be a new fitness regime, a better diet or to cut out vino! Despite being made with the hope to succeed, I am one of the many who is guilty of giving up halfway through January.
And of course, we can’t forget the next big thing to start 2019, the January sales. This helps drown the Christmas blues with the excitement of searching for the best deals from your favourite clothing line or some new tech you’ve been wanting to try out!
Whether you’re a personal trainer trying to help someone complete their goal, or a retail shop promoting your boxing day deals, SMS marketing could be the perfect solution …
As a fitness coach or personal trainer, you could help people fulfil their new year’s resolution. SMS can be used to send out reminders or confirmations for your arranged sessions, or motivational tips to encourage your clients to stick to their new fitness plan. You can also utilise SMS for when there is a change of location planned or to let your clients know about a new class. Bulk SMS messaging makes it super easy to send out an update to multiple people quickly and with mobiles never far from reach you can be more certain that they will receive it in time.
