SimplyCast now has a short code for text message marketing campaigns! What is a short code? A short code is a short number that people can text a keyword to, in order to sign up for tips, enter a contest, donate money and so on.
Short codes are an immediate, engaging way to connect with your customers. A short code is the perfect addition to your next text message campaign, to make it easy for customers to interact.
So, you’re wondering, how could I use a short code for my business? Let’s look at some examples.
You here it all the time. Inbound marketing this, inbound marketing that. But what is it and why should you be using inbound marketing software for your organization?
Inbound marketing, simply put, is the process of providing valuable and shareable content to earn the interest of visitors and customers rather than buying it with paid marketing.
More and more businesses are moving towards this rather than using outdated sales techniques, which are often intrusive to potential customers.
Inbound marketing will establish your company or organization as an industry expert that has valuable information to share.
In last week’s post (Part 1), we revealed how SimplyCast got its name. But how did the all-in-one platform of marketing tools actually get made? Read on.
SimplyCast started out small. Really small. Our very first office was just 150 square feet. It was tight, but the team was just excited to have an office space of our very own. All the basics were there: desks, chairs, computers, phones, the usual suspects.
And so, with our limited resources, our developers began writing code like crazy. The beginning goal of SimplyCast was to own every single line of our code so that we could keep costs down for our customers. The point was to create a customer flow communication solution that would be affordable for small businesses and powerful enough for large businesses.
Everyone is busy. If you make your customer’s day easier, that customer will trust that you care about their needs. Remembering to book an oil change or a routine maintenance appointment can easily slip your mind and trying to remember the time and date of the automotive appointment is often a challenge as well.
Keep your customers up to date (and reduce the amount of customers who don’t show up to appointments) with automated reminders. You can schedule reminders for just about anything. Once you create a basic reminder message, an automated solution can send that message to each customer on the appropriate date. This way, you don’t have to manually call each customer for each reminder, but your customers still receive the information they want.
Automated messages are just one of many tools that help you build trust in your brand. If you choose a comprehensive automotive communication solution, you can reach out to more customers than you ever thought possible without increasing the amount of work that your staff must do. Keep your brand in the forefront with consistent messaging, help your customers remember their important appointments, and offer highly personalized customer service year round. Automated messages help you accomplish your customer service goals while saving time and effort.
