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.
