Mobile Marketing Campaign: Direct Response
If you are looking to promote a direct call to action from your advertising or want to receive messages as soon as they are sent, rather than through daily reporting as many other solutions offer then a Direct Response campaign is just for you.
Its as simple as it sounds – you advertise a 5 digit number, with a keyword (or not) and people see it, do what it says and you get your result! To help illustrate this please see two classic examples below…
Call Back Example: A finance company wants customers to request a call from an advisor to discuss loans. In their advertising they state “Text LOAN to 80010 and one of our trained advisors will call you straight back”.
Real-time Feedback Example: A radio station advertises a 5 digit number for listeners to text their views to. The received texts are immediately forwarded to an email address, delivering instantaneous feedback.
There really are a load of applications for this kind of campaign, and you can have yours up and running from as little as £25 a month. Read about shortcodes here.

Good copywriting is something marketers understand. But it's easy to forget the basic principles when running SMS marketing campaigns. You only have 160 characters after all (or 453 characters if you're using fastsms). While there are many elements to successful copywriting, there's one element that is often either overlooked or over-used. What is it? Urgency.
Using SMS marketing is one highly effective way to maintain relationships with mobile users, but there's an incredibly fine line between engaging with someone and annoying them to such an extent that they swiftly delete your marketing messages and never want to hear from you again. Here's 6 things to keep in mind to make sure you don't annoy your subscribers.
Although SMS services are usually associated with retail marketing campaigns, you can also use these communication tools across many other industries. SMS text messaging can be used to provide a perfect veterinary patient/clinic communication tool, and because of this it is becoming increasingly popular within the specialist animal care sector.
