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.

Hotels constantly strive to improve customer experiences, but sometimes things go awry. Many problems could be fixed if the customer complains while at the hotel rather than later when they return home. By having a 'textline' you can give guests the opportunity to share their views directly with management without a direct confrontation.
One of the many benefits of SMS messaging is that it's personal. It can feel like a one on one communication or even conversation. But it's also one of the best ways to reach 10, 100, or even 100,000 people all at once. So even "one to many" communication feels like "one to one" to the receiver.
Is SMS marketing like social media? While there are similarities and both can be considered mobile marketing, the short answer is no. However when using a multi-channel marketing strategy it's important to know when to use a text message and when to use a social media channel.
