Holiday SMS Messages for Businesses

Seasons Greetings! The holiday season is here. As a business, it's important to know what type of text messages to send your customers regarding upcoming promotions, etc. Lucky for you, CCAI is here to help!

SMS marketing is one of the most efficient and direct forms of promotion since it can be used to reach clients no matter where they are. Numerous businesses brag about extremely high open and response rates (above 95% and 40% to 50% respectively) as well as click-through rates (often between 15% and 40%).

Today we’ll dive into some surefire ways that you can connect with your customers this holiday season using SMS.

 

Spread the Holiday Spirit

Take full advantage of the season to get in touch with your customers and share holiday cheer by sending them SMS messages. A holiday-themed text message or multimedia message service (MMS) can make a huge impact on a customer’s mood. Express your gratitude to the consumer for being such a loyal patron, and assure them that your firm values their business. You may even send them a funny MMS wishing them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Set up an Opt-In Campaign

An opt-in keyword can be advertised alongside your phone number using a premium text messaging service. If you can get customers to sign up for your deals voluntarily, you can boost your sales and your contact list. You’re not limited to a single keyword when crafting your campaign; instead, utilize a wide variety of terms to highlight your various seasonal sales, limited-time offers, and individual locations. Using a combination of keywords is an even better strategy for maintaining client interest; for instance, you might announce a “keyword of the week” that would grant subscribers access to exclusive discounts. 

Send Exclusive Offers

It is essential to provide discounts to clients during the Christmas season. Customers whose phone numbers you have access to can benefit from exclusive holiday promotions, and you can strengthen your relationship with them in the process.

Text messages have a far greater open rate than emails, therefore they can be used as a marketing tool in some situations. Customers who opt up to receive promotional text messages from your company will almost certainly be exposed to whatever offer is currently being promoted.

One popular practice among companies that employ SMS marketing is to get a customer’s phone number at signup, then send the customer a discount code for their next purchase via text message. Consider the following as an example of a suitable message:

“Hello!  We appreciate your recent purchase this holiday season. Please accept this coupon for 15% off your next order as our way of saying thanks. To save 15% off your order, enter promo code 15OFFNEXT at checkout. Once again, we appreciate it, and we hope to continue working with you.”
