What kinds of texts should you send?
You know your business better than we do. But in regards to sales & promotions, you will want to send messages that entice customers to buy your product by including images or a call-to-action. If you are sending out promos, let them know if there is something specific they have to do to retrieve the promotion like showing a text or include a promo code they can use on your site. Whichever option you use to upsell your product in the promotion, make sure you identify yourself at the beginning of the text with a company name so that customers will know right away that the message is from you was intended for them based on your services.
Another good practice is to provide deals during times when you know your clients are at home or around the holidays. Holidays and seasons are great themes to work around because clients will expect to receive some kind of offer around these times.
How many texts should you send?
If you are concerned about bombarding your contacts with too many text messages, it is best to let your contacts know how many times you will be contacting them per month on your ad or website where contacts would subscribe. This is the best practice recommended by the CTIA to avoid legal complaints.
Depending on your business, you may want to send messages once or twice a week, or even once for each month. You will want to base this on how often your client purchases from you on average or if it is something they may need for a certain period of time.
