Bulk SMS has taken the ‘small to medium’ business world by storm! It is a tried, tested and proven marketing method that supersedes all others! With read response rates at 98% within 5 minutes of receipt, this highly effective marketing tool is guaranteed, sure-fire success! Why does this marketing medium continue to work for so many SMEs? One of the major key factors is ‘instant brand recognition’. Utilising bulk SMS with sender names ensures your target audience instantly recognises you and your brand. Have you received text messages, alerts and notifications from businesses and retailers displaying their number only? This tends to look unprofessional and can be annoying and frustrating for your customers, and could lead to your promotion, special deal, notification or alert being ignored!
Sendmode’s multi-award winning bulk SMS service provides for usage of up to 11 alphabetic characters as a sender name (Sender ID). Use your Sender ID as your business name or your campaign name and create as many as preferred within your Sendmode account. This is particularly effective if you have multiple sub-divisions within your business group and you need to send messages out to numerous different groups, with different Sender ID’s.
Using bulk SMS with sender names ensures direct, targeted marketing which yields guaranteed sale conversions. Think about it, your customer has opted-in to receive your marketing campaigns; they are more likely to read your instantly recognisable messages, compared to a message received from an unknown number.
Note: When using bulk SMS with sender names, the sender’s number is overridden, therefore the recipient cannot send a reply text. However, SMS messages will often contain a keyword and a shortcode for you to respond to i.e. “Text SAMBO to 51234”. However, it is feasible to use your mobile number as your Sender ID which allows customers to respond directly to your handset or back into your mobile account.
Ensure professionalism and instant brand recognition with Sendmode’s multi-award winning bulk SMS service. Contact Trevor on 0203 411 4464 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to setup your bulk SMS with sender names.
