Take Control of Your Advertisements

leave a comment »

Text marketing is one of the many kinds of advertising methods you can use to market your business. One great advantage of text marketing over an ordinary advertising method is the amount of control it gives you to monitor and improve your advertisements.

Timing is important in advertising any kind of business. This is the reason television prime time rates are more expensive than any time of the day. If you want more people to see your television commercials, you need to put your commercials on a prime time slot. Coming up with a television commercial is very expensive but even if you spend a lot of money on your television commercial it still won’t guarantee perfect timing for your ad and a successful ad campaign.

Why is timing important? An advertisement is more powerful when presented during times people actually need a product or service. An example of a business that can benefit from perfect timing of advertisements is a restaurant. You can increase the number of customers coming in during dining hours by sending timely messages about your menu and different meal deals on specific times of the day.

If you have a breakfast special, sending a message in the morning when people are getting ready for work would make people think of coming to your restaurant for a quick breakfast meal instead of just bringing coffee to work.  A text message sent at the end of the day about your happy hour specials will convince clients have a few drinks in your restaurant before heading home.

Commercials and posters are great but they can easily be forgotten especially if they are not seen at specific times of the day when people should be thinking about your products or services like during meal times. Click here to learn more about text marketing

Mobile Campaign, a Great Advertising Method for Your Business

leave a comment »

Print ads and listings are the usual marketing mediums used by most businesses. These methods help in increasing the number of customers but they don’t reach the majority of your target consumer population due to their limitations. A mobile campaign is an efficient method to market your services. It is cost-effective and connects to a larger number of consumers.

Customers encounter many forms of ads like print ads, newspaper listings and emails. People often have no time to look at print ads because of their busy schedule. Also, because print ads are very common, people just tend to ignore these things every day. Using a mobile campaign to market your products has many advantages over conventional ways.

Most people have mobile phones with SMS capabilities. This means you can conveniently send your ads to your customers wherever they are. A mobile campaign is very effective because you can reach a larger number of consumers without being restricted to a certain area. With print ads, you are limited by the area you can distributed your ads or the number of printed materials you have. In a mobile campaign, you can also send limited time offers to customers immediately. With usual marketing schemes, your offer may expire because your ads can be easily ignored.

Using a mobile campaign can help in catching customer’s attention.  You have the option to customize your ads according to the target consumer group. This gives you flexibility and more options with your ads. Build a solid relationship with your customers by directly communicating with them. You can also receive customer feedback which can help in improving your company’s services.

A mobile campaign can increase your customers and save you money. It has lesser restrictions compared to traditional marketing and reaches a broader group of consumers. Click here if you want to learn more about mobile campaigns

Creating a Text Marketing Plan

leave a comment »

A mobile campaign is one of the greatest things you can spend money on for your business. Managing a business entails attention to details and practicality. You can’t afford to waste time and money on marketing strategies that are expensive and ineffective in advertising your business.

Text marketing is an affordable marketing method that works. A mobile campaign is very easy to set up. If you have a clear picture of what you want for your business, you won’t have a problem launching a mobile campaign. Here are some tips you can follow to create a great text marketing plan for your business:

Message. In text marketing, the simpler and straight forward your message is the better. Keep in mind that text messaging is convenient for people who are always on the go. Your busy clientele doesn’t have the luxury of time to read long messages.

Timing. The time you send text messages to your customers is very important, especially if you are running a business that has peak hours in a day. If you own a bar, you’d want to send a message about your happy hour or “prices half off on drinks” promo an hour to a couple of hours before people start leaving work. This way your customers have enough time to plan for their evening (if they haven’t already) or change their plans and go to your bar.

Appreciation. Don’t forget to let your customers know that you appreciate their frequent visits to your establishment. Earn customer loyalty by knowing how to thank your customers for choosing to do business with you.

Text marketing has a lot of potential in terms of boosting business sales and improving customer loyalty. Click here to learn more about Text Marketing

Restaurant Marketing Ideas

leave a comment »

Restaurant marketing isn’t easy because competition in the food business is very tight. If you own a restaurant, looking for an affordable yet effective marketing strategy is very important.

There are other ways to market your restaurant aside from having the usual TV or print ads. Text marketing costs less and is more effective in reaching your customers. Text marketing also allows you to communicate effectively with your consumer population.

Using text messaging can be a powerful tool in restaurant marketing. You can create an interactive marketing program that will allow all of your subscribers to participate. Through an open communication, priorities shift from your products to your customers resulting to a good number of loyal clients. You can send your customers discounts or inform them about your specialty of the day. This creates a strong connection between your business and your customers.

Text marketing also allows you to send text messages in a timely manner. Send a promo just before lunch to create the urgency to avail it. Most people will always go for the one that can save them money. With this method of restaurant marketing, your message is delivered directly and read by your customers immediately. If a customer is not ready to take your offer, they can forward it to their friends who might be interested. Since your program is an opt-in service, your customers are confident that the information they receive is not something they don’t need. Text marketing can certainly increase your profits by increasing your customers and reducing marketing costs.

Using text messaging for restaurant marketing is very effective in improving your business.

How to Use SMS Messaging for your Business

leave a comment »

SMS messaging is a powerful communication tool you can use for your business. Today, you can reach more people by advertising through mobile phones.

Mobile marketing is a great advertising strategy, especially if you are not willing to spend a lot of money for an advertising campaign. Let’s face it, with our economy’s situation today; you can’t risk the money you have for something that may not give you great results for your business.

How much do you use your mobile phone? An average phone user will have a few hours of phone calls a day and several text messages sent and received. Also, a busy and average mobile phone user will use a mobile phone to connect to the Internet a couple of times a day. A mobile phone is a necessity, especially to people who are always on the go. With this in mind, imagine sending out a few business advertisements to hundreds of subscribers in a day. How many of these subscribers do you think would consider taking your great promo or save your message so they can take a look at it later on? Now, imagine yourself distributing flyers on a very busy street. How many people do you think would take your flyer and read it? How many of your flyers would end up in the trash bin?

SMS messaging is an affordable and convenient tool you can use to make your business available to your target consumer group. A simple text message will be enough to catch your customer’s attention. She can even send your message to her other friends who might want to take advantage of your offer.  Sending a simple message about your great promo or a reminder of your upcoming anniversary sale is very effective in gaining customers.

leave a comment »

Mobile marketing is an effective campaign strategy you should use for your growing business. A mobile campaign has a lot to offer to your business. Not only is it affordable, it is also very easy to launch. Unlike other advertising methods which may take days or weeks to plan before you can launch the campaign, a mobile campaign is easy to plan.

Mobile marketing is for all types of businesses. It does not limit itself to big scale clients but also caters to small to medium sized companies. When looking for a marketing strategy, you have to find something that offers everything you need in an advertising campaign. With Mobile marketing, not only do you get great ad campaigns but you also have a great communication tool you can use to communicate with your clients. When building your business, it’s important to let your clients communicate with you, not only while they are in your establishment but also when they are not in your establishment. Having a good relationship with your clients is very important if you want your business to prosper. To have a good relationship, you need to have a 2-way communication, which is what you get from a mobile campaign.

With mobile marketing, you can easily send important business updates to your clients. If you are a restaurant owner, sending your daily specials to your subscribers will make clients come to your restaurant more than when you just post an attractive poster by your restaurant’s door.
