Top Benefits of Using Bulk SMS Marketing
 
  1. Cost: We all know not all channels are created equal when it comes to the digital world. For instance, display ads need lots of time and one has to pay for every person who sees the ad even if they don’t click. SMS Marketing is much more affordable compared to other forms of digital channels. However, sometimes you might have to pay extra in case of a large contact list.
  2. Personalization: Customers these days like customization and a personal touch to wherever service they are taking. Around 63% of people get annoyed by the manner brands still depend on the primitive strategy of sending generic emails repeatedly. SMS marketing helps companies give personalized messages to their customers. Also, tools like audience segmentation separate your customers based on the content like click. As a result, it will be easier for companies to categorize their entire audience for ideal customer preference.
  3. Targeted: It is considered illegal if you are sending bulk SMS to customers without their permission. Here's the good part as persons on your subscriber lists decide on their own to join your list, hence the probability is high that they will interact with your messages.
