Trumpia lets us communicate with people in the way they prefer and that gives us a huge advantage
Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
Surf Ride, a leading surf adventure and retail outlet, is better engaging customers, reinforcing its brands and boosting sales by using the Trumpia Multi-Channel Marketing and Messaging platform to conduct an orchestrated, cross-channel promotion across SMS text and Facebook as well as radio and other traditional advertising media.
A small, family-owned retailer in Southern California with a 30-year plus legacy, Surf Ride offers merchandise for skating, surfing and other water sports as well as camps and lessons for surf enthusiasts of all ages.
Trumpia is the leading solution provider for Multi-Channel Marketing and Messaging, offering mobile text, email, voice broadcast, IM and social media in a single, unified web-based platform.
The Trumpia Facebook widget, an icon on Surf Ride’s Facebook page, leads consumers to a sign-up page, collects people’s contact information and then automatically updates the company’s Trumpia database.
From its Facebook fan page, Surf Ride also links to its YouTube videos and Instagram photos. In addition, The Surf Ride Facebook fan page with nearly 2000 Likes features a sign-up widget for its newsletter, encouraging people to opt-in to receive discounts and mobile deals. Surf Ride also advertises its mobile keyword and short code on the radio, encouraging more people to opt-in by texting SURFRIDE to 69302.
With nearly 700 mobile sign-ups, Surf Ride continuously grows its Trumpia database. The retailer uses the information it collects to send out monthly campaigns. In August, Surf Ride sent out more than 2000 SMS text messages to its mobile database.
“As a family owned and operated business, we’re always looking to the latest technology to help us deliver the utmost in convenience, information and service to our customers and the greater community of surf enthusiasts,” said Taylor Masoner, marketing manager for Surf Ride. “The Trumpia platform allows us to serve our loyal patrons as a valuable information resource which offers surf education, equipment and insight and, at the same time, grow our customer base automatically in a fast and cost-effective way. Trumpia lets us communicate with people in the way they prefer and that gives us a huge advantage.”
“Surf Ride’s use of Trumpia is an excellent example of how multi-channel marketing, which uses SMS marketing at its core, can supercharge the marketing efforts of small businesses – allowing them to enjoy the same results and ROI as larger corporations,” said Ken Rhie, CEO and co-founder of Trumpia. “Retailers like Surf Ride who are now jumping on the mobile and multi-channel marketing channel bandwagon will be well-poised to capture more sales from an increasingly global and on-the-go economy. We are looking forward to continuing to help Surf Ride and retailers of all sizes conduct orchestrated campaigns that better engage customers, using the communication mode of their choice.”
Starting as a seedling in the 1970’s, Surf Ride has grown from the ground up, sprouting first in Oceanside and branching out to a second location in Solana Beach. With both store fronts rooted along the Pacific Coast Highway, Surf Ride is committed to providing our customers with as many product choices as possible. Our hard work has paid off and has led to recognition from Transworld Business as Hardgoods Retailer of the Year. From land to the sea, our vision is to get everyone as stoked on riding the elements as we are. To keep up with the rise of the Internet world, our team has developed an online shop, providing product to your doorstep with the click of a button.
