How to Build Your Contacts List with GC text
You’ve taken the leap and decided you’re ready to kick things up a notch by building a text marketing list. Your next step forward is learning exactly how to get started – that’s where we come in! Text message marketing is kind of our thing (if you haven’t noticed already) and we’ve found the secret sauce to get your list growing in no time.
Opt-in text message marketing is the most cost-effective way to market your business to large groups of people simultaneously, (i.e. to reach the masses). However, the key here is that in order to reach that larger audience, you have to build opt-in lists first. People have to want to join your club. When people make the choice to join your marketing list, they’re filled with expectations. They’ve given you their permission to contact them and want to hear from you! This means that you don’t have to feel stressed when you hit the send button on your texts. You’re able to send confidently and know that you’re building your brand relationships rather than worrying if you’re annoying them. It’s a two-way street going in the right direction for everyone involved.
One of the main reasons text marketing is topping e-mail these days is because people keep their wireless numbers much longer than they do email addresses. And, because they typically stick to one mobile number, you don’t have a bunch of unresponsive or fake contacts that you constantly have to weed through and delete off your list. It truly is the best way to reach your audience and make sure they’re picking up what you’re putting down.
We know that you’re busy and have plenty of other things calling your name on your work plate, so that’s why we know you’ll love using text as a marketing tool for your business. You won’t find yourself or members of your team sitting in front of the computer for hours trying to write pages of content. Text messages take less time to produce, and cost just pennies to send, and you’re pretty much guaranteed that your message will get read (hello, 98% open rate!), so you don’t have to worry about wasted time, money, or efforts spent along the way.
