Direct. Immediate. Concise.

Over the past few decades, marketing has evolved from the simple act of notifying prospective customers about a particular product or service to a much more sophisticated and complex act of interaction with potential customers via various channels.

SMS marketing is an important strategy in today’s marketing industry as the vast majority of people all over the world own a mobile phone of some kind. According to Statista estimations, almost 92% of the population owns a mobile phone in 2022. Having in mind that Short Message Service is available to any user of a mobile network, it is not surprising that marketers recognize and utilize the full potential of SMS marketing to send campaigns, promotions, news, and updates to customers who opted in.

In today’s fast-paced world, companies struggle to target customers on the move, so SMS as a channel is becoming more and more prevalent in the marketing world. SMS marketing is direct and immediate, with a limitation of 160 characters per message, forcing marketers to be concise and clear. Additionally, it is a great tool for getting customer feedback, thus helping companies stay connected to their target audience.
