    Nope. That's a whole new level of communication and that's why people feel that SMS spam is really intrusive. People take SMS personally, because it's not random spam messages that they get in their email.

    I think it's a waste of time and an illegal one in many countries and states.

    I think SMS marketing is becoming more popular nowadays. It's becoming more effective than email marketing since most customers are on their phones 24/7. Many business owners use SMS software to reach their customers, either to promote their product/services or to know their feedbacks/complaints. For customers, it makes them feel good when the business owner takes time to check on them.

    To help you realize the full prospective of SMS promotion, we’ve detailed some of its advantages here.

    1. It’s time efficient

    Email promotion is amazing. It’s free, it’s effective, and it’s easy to do. But being seated and composing an e-mail needs time, and that’s one thing many of you don’t have. A written text is made up of only 140 figures, and most of us have plenty of your a chance to part a phrase together and deliver it out. If you don’t, it might the perfect for you to think about choosing an assistant!

    2. It’s affordable

    SMS promotion is not as expensive as you may think it is. With Appropriate, SMS information price around $0.095 – $0.15 each based on where you stay, and other devoted SMS promotion suppliers are within a identical cost variety.

    If you’re doubtful about SMS promotion, you could try it first with your VIP record. Delivering an SMS strategy to a record of 100 of your best clients will price you about $12. If 1 out of 100 clients requires you up on the sale, you will have protected your price. In this example, that will make for a transformation amount of 1%, although most SMS strategies have a transformation amount that’s nearer to 8%.

    3. Short information are to the point

    With SMS promotion, your concept is to the factor, rather than being hidden in a 600 term e-mail. Although there is a moment and place for both, SMS promotion is better designed for special provides, fast up-dates, and time-sensitive provides.

    4. Greater start rates

    It’s not unusual to have several unread information in your e-mail mailbox, but most people will study a written text in no time of its appearance. Research reveal that 98% of sms information will be started out, and most will be within the first 3 moments of being obtained. This is a extreme impact on e-mail marketing’s regular start amount of 19.91% in the elegance and personal care market.

    5. Greater transformation rates

    Conversion prices regular on 8.22% for SMS promotion, which is far more than e-mail with its 1.73% regular transformation amount. SMS marketing’s budget and high achievements amount makes it one of the more significant resources in your promotion tool kit.

    6. Product positioning

    All of your business’s actions improve your brand identification. By using SMS promotion, you’re placing yourself another step forward of the remaining. You’re informing your clients that you’re technical smart and up with the styles. You’re displaying them that you’re willing to try new and easier ways of interacting with them.

    I don't think it as an effective way of promoting your products/services/business. It's an old-fashioned marketing for me as nowadays, there a lot of internet marketing strategies to choose from.

    Any communication is good for business. Adding SMS to business communication then would be good. Having email, IM, SMS, social media, contact center would then be ideal as that would give people different options to contact.

    I personally do not like it but totally depends on who you are targeting, I was targeting dairy farmers for a campaigns and one of the most successful methods was SMS marketing because it was low tech, efficient and they literally live on their phones but not tech savvy.

    I do get slightly annoyed at unsolicited sms, but can't deny that they do effectively get your message to your intended recipient directly. So if done well, it should be good for promotional purposes for your business.

    SMS Marketing could be great if you have a physical store and only targeting a specific market. But that's the end of it.
