Keep your agency ahead of the curve with SMS

One of the most important aspects of running a marketing company is creating meaningful dialogue with customers. This means responding to customers quickly, sending relevant messages, and reaching people at the right time. This is all possible with SMS for marketing agencies.

Good communication requires promptness, back-and-forth conversations, and a clear message. While emails and phone calls are common in the business world, they have limitations. 

On the other hand, SMS is a powerful way to engage with your customers. Research shows that 90 percent of SMS messages are opened within the first three minutes. Plus, 45 percent of SMS marketing messages get a reply.

By using Textline for your SMS needs, you can stay connected to clients. Send them relevant updates, see prior text conversations, or set out-of-office messages when you aren't available. Plus, view data and insights about customer communication from Textline's dashboard.

SMS use cases for marketing agencies

SMS agency communication: Nurture leads

Marketing agencies use SMS communication to nurture leads and grow relationships with potential clients. With texting, agencies can quickly touch base with prospects who’ve gone cold or send important information to clients to help them make a decision. SMS messages appear directly on mobile phone home screens, allowing them to be seen. If prospects are not responding to emails, an SMS message may be a better way to reach them. 

Plus, up to 50 percent of customers prefer text conversations with businesses than any other method. That’s because text messages are convenient, facilitate natural one-on-one conversations, and don’t require expensive hardware.

SMS messages also can be personalized. With Textline you can easily send your clients images, file attachments, emojis, and GIFs. Potential customers and existing clients enjoy the personal touch of SMS. Overall, SMS can help your team facilitate back-and-forth communication to build genuine relationships. 

Promote events and webinars

Use texting to promote upcoming events like webinars. Marketing agencies often have jam-packed calendars throughout the year. Inviting event attendees via SMS message is one way to stand out and target specific customers. Sending event invites via SMS makes it easy for attendees to RSVP and add the event to their phone’s calendar. Use bulk SMS features to invite many contacts at once or send individual invites.

You can also use SMS to send event reminders or communicate key information like login instructions for a webinar or dress code for an in-person event. After the event, use SMS agency messaging to follow up with your audience with a survey to collect feedback or follow up with warm leads.

Send surveys to get useful feedback

Easily collect feedback or ask for client reviews with Textline’s SMS agency solution. You can send a bulk survey to clients to understand how satisfied they were with your service. Or, you could use texting to request reviews from clients. 

Text surveys are a great way to get valuable insights from your customers. With high engagement rates and high response rates, text messaging allows you to get feedback quickly to improve operations. 

Plus, Textline allows you to automate these surveys. For example, after a customer marketing campaign ends, marketing agencies could automatically send a customer feedback survey. From there, the agency can use those insights to improve their service and create better customer outcomes. 

Distribute valuable content and use cases

Over 70 percent of customers say they consume three to five pieces of a business’ content before making a purchase online. SMS helps marketing agencies distribute this content to boost website views and promote their services. 

Use a bulk SMS message to share relevant blog posts, case studies, videos, viral tweets,  infographics, or newsletters. This will help your customers learn more about your marketing agency and decide if you’re the best fit. 

Overall, drive engagement and improve metrics by sharing content via SMS.
