Inbound SMS marketing is suitable for almost any business and is particularly good for getting interest from consumers.
Setting up an inbound SMS marketing campaign is very simple.
You need to select a key word you want to use and then check if it is available. Once you have your keyword secured you just need to start promoting it. If you have delivery vehicles add it to your signage, taking out some advertising would be simple enough, using social media would also work well to start your campaign.
You can generally hire the keyword a month at a time but if you manage to secure something great like “Drive” and you are a driving instructor you might want to think about locking out your competition.
Things to consider when choosing keywords
Be careful check for negative connotations and words. It might be funny but there are bound to be consequences. Think about what you might want to add as a sub-word in the future.
If you want to use SMS messaging for your salon or boutique picking a keyword like ‘HAIR’
Once you have your keyword set up and advertised, you need to start adding some automatic responses that are sent to people who opt in to receiving messages.
