Text messaging – We all do it, multiple times a day, every day. There’s a reason text messaging is the number one form of mobile communication in the world. It’s fast, it’s easy, everyone does it. In fact, over 26 billion texts are sent each day in America alone. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Texts have a 99% open rate
Skip the letter, send a text. A text message can’t get lost in a stack of mail or sent to a Spam folder. With 99% of your payment reminder texts getting read, what does that mean for the overall redemption rate in your shop? Some of our users have seen on-time payments increase up to 40% after implementing text in their business.
On average, text messages are read within 5 seconds of being received
There’s a built-in sense of urgency with text messaging. We all know the gnawing feeling of leaving a text unread, whether we want to see it or not. Using text to send payments reminders and to promote sales and offers is an automatic “in” to your customer base.
90% of consumers would prefer text communication over a phone call
Sending a text can have the same, if not more, impact than a phone call. There are no notes to make, nothing to forget, it’s there in your phone. Not to mention, sending a text is 10 times faster than making a phone call.
