Does SMS Marketing Work for Every Brand?

In the ever-evolving landscape of marketing strategies, amidst the dominance of social media, SMS marketing quietly retains its prowess as a formidable tool for audience engagement. Yet, its impact remains contingent upon the brand’s nature and the preferences of its target demographic. So, does SMS marketing work for every brand?

Advantages of SMS Marketing

  • High Open Rates: SMS commands remarkable open rates, ensuring that messages land directly in the hands of a significant portion of the audience, thereby increasing the likelihood of engagement.
  • Instant Communication: The immediacy of SMS delivery makes it ideal for time-sensitive promotions or urgent alerts, ensuring that messages are received promptly.
  • Direct and Personalized: SMS facilitates personalized communication, fostering a stronger and more intimate connection with recipients compared to other mass marketing channels.

Considerations for Brand Suitability

While the advantages of SMS marketing are undeniable, its efficacy can hinge greatly on the brand’s essence and the inclinations of its target audience. Brands catering to younger demographics might witness higher levels of engagement compared to those targeting older audiences.

Best Practices for SMS Marketing

  • Permission-Based Approach: Obtaining consent before sending SMS is paramount. This proactive step ensures that recipients are willing participants, minimizing the risk of alienating them with unsolicited messages.
  • Conciseness and Relevance: Keeping SMS messages succinct and directly relevant to the recipient’s interests significantly enhances engagement levels, as recipients are more inclined to respond to content that resonates with them.
  • Timing and Frequency: Strategic timing of messages is crucial. Ensuring messages are sent at appropriate times and avoiding inundating recipients with excessive messages preserves the effectiveness of SMS campaigns.

A nuanced understanding of these dynamics is pivotal in harnessing the full potential of SMS marketing. By aligning strategies with these considerations, businesses can unlock the true power of this often-overlooked yet potent marketing avenue.

Have any questions?

We have answers.

Can you help me grow Instagram followers?

We partner with Socialboost to help build Instagram followers. Click the link below to enroll. Plans start at $59/mo.

What photos or videos do you use?

By default, we can use the photos you have on your website as well as utilizing the plethora of photos available to us within our royalty free library.

If you have photos or videos for us to use, depending on your subscription, we welcome you to upload them into a Google Drive folder and share that link with us!

Looking for custom videos?  Some of our plans include videos or you can add them to any plan starting at $98/mo!

How do you mimic my branding colors and style?

As mentioned above, depending on your plan, we can use whatever you’d like to provide us! If not, we’ll resort to using your website or our royalty free library.

That being said, we can come up with custom graphics that suit your branding style as an add-on to your posting subscription.

$98/month for 3 custom graphics each week
$148/month for 5 custom graphics each week

Note: The cost of custom graphics is on top of your monthly subscription cost

What is content review & approval?

Content review and approval is where your social media content creator sends you a weeks worth of posts, prior to their designated publication time the following week.

This way, you will have the chance to give us feedback on each post in case you’d like us to make a minor edit.

Note: One round of editing per post permitted, depending on your plan.

What are the results I can expect from your posting services?

The idea behind consistent posting onto your social media pages is to keep them active with content that promotes your business solutions, educates your audience to showcase your expertise and to also keep things lighthearted, it’s social media after all!

There’s nothing worse for a business than to earn someone looking into what you do, only for them to see a barren social media page. To them, it may appear that you are out of business or potentially a scam.

We are often asked about growing followers and generating sales or leads. These are great goals to have but please understand that those goals are better obtained through paid advertising campaigns.

For more information on paid advertising, please visit our paid advertising services.

Do you use a posting scheduler and how do you get access to my business pages?

We are fortunate to be partnered with to utilize their excellent scheduling platform.

By signing up for our content services, we will set you up with your own Cloud Campaign workspace depending on your plan.

During onboarding we request admin access to your social accounts using a secure platform. This allows us to manage the occasional disconnect when the platforms push out updates.

Furthermore, with your own workspace you are welcome to view and edit content at your leisure!

Why do my posts say “Posted by Cloud Campaign”

We use Cloud Campaign, which is a 3rd party app, to scale social media management and posting. When a post says “Posted by Cloud Campaign”, it is only the admins of your company page that can see this and not your followers.
