Jamestown, NY (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Text marketing is a fairly new marketing tool that allows businesses and organizations to communicate promos, coupons, reminders and more to their customers via targeted, opt-in text messages. This new stream is quickly becoming a staple in the marketing mix of companies around the world as it’s average ROI can be much greater than others like email and print.
What makes text marketing so effective is that 98% of text messages are read within the first 10 minutes. You’re also only sending texts to people that have opted in to hear what your particular business has to say. The combination of those two components has positioned it to be one of the most powerful marketing tools for 2013.
Slick Text’s new “text 2 win contests” allow businesses to engage their customers by allowing them to text a particular keyword to 31996 for a chance to win. The interface for running contests with Slick Text is very straightforward and surprisingly simple. There are a handful of questions to answer, click a “save” button and it’s all set. Anyone can then text in for a chance to win. When the contest is over, random winners will automatically be selected and awarded their prize.
