At the intersection of productivity and efficiency is a growing trend – converting time-sensitive alerts and loyalty updates to text rather than email in order to reach a text-savvy audience who prefers to receive real-time text updates.
In a tech-dependent era in which cell phones are usually no more than an arm’s length away, a promotional text or company-wide alert via text is no more unusual or intrusive than the countless stream of news alerts, direct messages, and notifications that light up our devices. In fact, text alerts are the preferred mode of communication for many consumers and business leaders.
Studies show that text marketing is unparalleled in its effectiveness and that many consumers prefer text engagement over other modes of communication. Whether you are considering supplementing your current outreach efforts with instantaneous, automated marketing campaigns or revamping your marketing efforts completely, we are here to help.

Consumers are accustomed to sending and receiving texts all day long. If you want to make sure your communication does not go unnoticed, connect with your audience in a way that is familiar and comfortable to them.
