If you're using SMS or email - or better yet, both - as marketing channels, you set up your message, send it out and analyse the results. But how do you improve that message for better results the next time you send out your SMS or email? The reality is that a large number of businesses don’t use SMS or email marketing to its full potential, and that's because they don’t always use the right techniques to improve the open or conversion rates of their marketing messages. Once you know how to get started with the conversion optimisation of your marketing campaigns, you will be able to significantly increase your conversion rate and start to utilise your marketing channels to their full potential.

You'd get every 'Tom, Dick and Harry' blowing up your phone, asking you every possible question under the sun about who you are, what's this about, what company are you with, how much does it cost, is this a job, etc...?It'd be a complete NIGHTMARE!    You and I both know it would be! Well, the SOLUTION is to put automated information between YOU and your PROSPECT. So lets do the same voice broadcast or ringless voice drop to 1,000 prospects on a Tuesday afternoon but this time around, you use your (NEW) sms mobile number as a "buffer" between YOU and the PROSPECT. In other words, they have to go through your phone marketing system BEFORE they can get a chance to talk to you.
A single SMS message has a maximum size of 1120 bits. This is important because there are two types of character encodings, GSM and Unicode. Latin-based languages like English are GSM based encoding, which are 7 bits per character. This is where text messages typically get their 160 character per SMS limit.[13] Long messages that exceed this limit are concatenated. They are split into smaller messages, which are recombined by the receiving phone.

The answer to this question is complicated. You can legally purchase phone numbers, since there is no law that forbids you to do this. When you are buying phone numbers, you are essentially purchasing data. However, it is what you do with those purchased phone numbers that determines if you stay on the legal side of the law or not. Read on to find out more about what you can or cannot do with purchased phone numbers.
The easiest and most efficient way of sending an SMS marketing campaign is through a bulk SMS service provider. Enterprise-grade SMS providers will usually allow new customers the option to sign-up for a free trial account before committing to their platform. Reputable companies also offer free spam compliance, real-time reporting, link tracking, SMS API,[19] multiple integration options, and a 100% delivery guarantee. Most providers can provide link shorteners and built-in analytics to help track the return on investment of each campaign.

Texting is the only mobile marketing medium that can reach both smartphone and regular mobile phone users. And, while the Internet is expanding globally, satellite telephone connections seem to be more universal and more reliable than Internet connections. Therefore, text messaging has the widest reach globally compared to any other mobile marketing channel.

The issue of trust is the great advantage that lies at the heart of SMS marketing. Because people are reluctant to give out their numbers, few businesses have those numbers, and so fewer marketing texts are sent compared with marketing emails. The result is that customers are unlikely to get bored with marketing texts the way they've become bored by marketing emails.
While many agencies spend thousands of dollars launching high-tech, multi-channel campaigns, they sometimes lose sight that less can be more -- and often, the perfect solution is resting right in the palm of your hands. SMS text messaging is a simple but powerful communications channel, reaching customers right where they are and consequently boasting a staggering 99% open rate. And MMS (multimedia messaging) enables sending pictures, video, GIFs and audio, thereby further enhancing messaging. SMS lead generation is equally effective. Think about it -- when was the last time you went anywhere without your cell phone, or failed to notice a text message that you had received? The level of engagement with SMS text messaging is unparalleled -- about 90% of text messages are opened and read within only three minutes of receipt. For these reasons and more, text messaging is quickly becoming the communications method of choice for both business and pleasure. If you aren’t recommending SMS messaging as a communications and lead generation strategy, or using it on behalf of your clients, now is the time to start!
