Today, most people prefer texts to phone calls or emails. If you are not actively building a database of mobile phone numbers that you can use to reach out to your customers and drive them back to your businesses, you are not just missing out on the best digital marketing option available, you are likely leaving money on the table.
At WebStores Ltd we are so confident about this helping your business, we are going to set you up with a bulk texting solution for 30 days at no cost to you. This includes a special text-only phone number, a KEYWORD, access to our texting software, and even a printed sign to get you started. While we give you a sign like the above to get started, we recommend that you put your offer everywhere: business cards, print ads, on your website, social media posts, menus – anywhere that a customer might see it. Once you have built up your list of opt-in phone numbers, you can continue this program for only $97 per month.
Here’s how it works:
As you can see, the numbers you collect are going to be added into a database that you can then use to send out bulk text messages whenever you want. In fact, you can even send out an RVM (Ringless Voice Mail) to leave a message directly in your customer’s inbox! You will be given a username and password into our software so that you can manage your offers yourself. We recommend one of the following types of offers to attract people onto your list:
Percentage off today’s purchase
This can be a great way to incentivize people as they are checking out. Who wouldn’t want to text “VIP” to your number in order to save off their current purchase. They can just show the cashier the text and get an instant savings.
Enter a drawing to win a big ticket item
This might be something as simple as a dinner for 2, and iPad, an annual pass to a nearby attraction, lottery tickets, or a trip. Of course everyone wins in the sense that you are going to give them special deals going forward, but customers love the chance to win something big, even the odds of the drawing are slim.
Leave us a review to get a free gift
A great way to grow your online reviews! Send the customer to the review site of your choice and reward them for providing you feedback. Don’t bribe them with a 5-star review (that’s against the terms of service for most sites), but incentivize them for taking the time to give you feedback.
Once a customer opts-in to your list to claim the offer, WebStores can optionally send them to a special form to collect more information about them, such as their name, email and birthday. This information can be added to your database so you can send them personalized offers on their birthday, while greeting them by name.
Whenever someone signs up for your list, you will get a notification, either by email or as a text on your personal cell phone.
You set up the auto-responder with whatever message you want based on the KEYWORD the customer enters. You can even set up a campaign that automatically sends messages at different times.
This truly is one of the best ways to drive repeat business. Get started today. Text “VIP” to 303-529-8804 or fill out the form below.
