Did you know that SMS is the channel where you reach the customer the fastest? Yes, that is correct. By including SMS in your communication, you can get more customers, increase conversions, and encourage more purchases!
Customized communication flows
Now it’s easier than ever to get started with SMS in your marketing. With SMS in Journey Builder, you can build intelligent communication flows with uniquely customized content for the recipient. You can easily tailor your customer journeys and deliver accurate messages through a user-friendly interface and built-in logic in the platform.
This is how SMS works in Journey Builder.
When you have to communicate via SMS, it is essential to personalize your messages because you reach the recipient directly on the mobile phone. The more accurate and personal you are in your message, the greater the chance the recipient will open the text message and act on it.
Some examples of sets connected to your Journey are:
- Win back SMS – Here, for example, you can include discount codes for customers who have previously made a purchase and a personal message to make them want to shop again.
- Cart Abandonment – Here, you can send a reminder that the customer has left items in their cart but still needs to complete the purchase. You can advantageously send a discount code here as well.
- Happy Birthday – Why not send a cheerful greeting on the customer’s birthday with a small gift in the form of a bonus check or similar?
Remember! These SMS are sent automatically depending on the triggers you set up for your Journey. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. Right?
