Statistics show a staggering 8.6 trillion SMS and MMS messages sent yearly globally, out of the world population of just under 8 billion.
SMS, or Short Message Service, messages are typically simple text messages; MMS, or Multimedia Messaging Service, are texts with pictures, audio, contact info, or links. That’s really something, especially since the first-ever text was sent in 1992.
There are just too many opportunities and ways to create targeted on-demand and scheduled campaigns to not take full advantage of this heavily used technology. SMS and MMS can include both opt-in database creation and opt-out options that would allow for interested consumers to take note of special features and offers of interest.
As a tornado shelter provider, you can encourage customers and potential customers to opt-in for notices, announcements, requests for surveys, offers, support assistance, and so much more. Texting is a perfect way to communicate, two-way, to anyone or to groups with just a simple post and a push of a button. You can even schedule a text on a birthday, anniversary, or important date.
