Mobile Messaging for service-based businesses
Send appointment reminders to your customers and ensure repeat business with SMS marketing
Whatever business you are in (hairdressing, car services, beauty, taxi etc.), you will lose productivity time and revenue when people don't turn up for their appointment or service slot. Sending a text reminder is the most cost effective, easiest and quickest way to ensure that missed appointments are kept to a minimum.
123-txt allows you to send text reminders to one or more person at once, from the comfort of your email inbox if you wish. Or, we can integrate SMS with your electronic calendar and have these reminders sent automatically.
Once you have a customer's text number and agreement to receive messages, you can market to them, with special offers, what's new and event information. A text discount code will ensure repeat business and prompt more sales, at a minimal cost to the business - no need to write a letter or pay for a flyer and no postage costs.
Useful SMS Tips For Marketing Your Services
- Add a simple SMS subscribe opt-in form to your website, give an incentive to subscribe - 10% off the next purchase, or similar
- Mention texting and include short codes on your social media channels, run text-in competitions
- If already have customer email addressess, email and ask them to opt-in to receive SMS
- Include a keyword and a short code on all your printed advertising material, (eg "Text 'offers' to 60777")
- Every business wants their customers to come back again ... so send a follow-up SMS asking if they were satisfied with the service they received. Include a discount ‘voucher’ which they can use next time.
- Offer an option to receive regular vouchers by SMS - Gives you extra, regular opportunities to market new services.
- Run customer surveys via SMS - Quick and easy to respond. Again, offer incentives.
