The Best SMS Tips to Avoid Annoying Customers
Here are five SMS tips to keep your customers happy, converting, and recommending your services.
1. Never Alarm Clock Text
There's nothing more annoying than being woken up by an advertisement via SMS.
Unlike email, it's not so easy to disconnect from phones and SMS. People like to remain accessible this way for any number of reasons. A text received too early or too late is scary.
That sense of fear will soon turn to annoyance when they read your advertisement.
Don't send an SMS before 9 am or after 7 pm. Schedule them according to each customer's time zone.
And if you know their time zones, then you can know what makes them tick.
2. Text What Makes Them Tick
Not every SMS you send applies to each customer you want to contact or convert. That's why you need to know who you're about to text.
Categorise clients into certain groups based on their purchase history, reviews, geographical location, diet, and more.
It's never been easy to find all of this out. A great place to start is on your social media pages. Their social media comments tell you what they like so track them.
And pay attention to the length of social media comments, too.
3. Text It Short and Sweet
Your messages shouldn't go over 160 characters. The same attention span rules apply to texts as they do to online materials.
Large blocks of text don't work well in either format.
People will scroll to the end of the message just to see how much they need to read.
Then they won't read it.
4. Text Meaningful Messages
Texts must convey a way for the customer to feel valued.
Your SMS should
- focus on making a lasting connection instead of pushing for a sale
- offer the possibility of an experience rather than a way to spend money
- mention any ways your company gets involved in making the community better.
This brings us to our fifth tip.
