SMS business texting services can improve sales

The benefits of SMS business texting services goes beyond just attracting attention. In fact, 50 percent of US customers make a direct purchase after they are sent an SMS text, coupon, or discount code (Findstack). It’s clear that text messaging is a valuable service for local businesses. 

SMS can improve customer engagement and interaction

SMS messages are read immediately, unlike email, enabling SMBs to improve customer engagement and see results quickly. Just let them know that 83 percent of millennials open text messages within 90 seconds of receiving them (OpenMarket).

Business texting also promotes interaction. SMS messaging is interactive and promotes person-to-person conversation, engaging customers to become more active.
