How to send better Independence Day sale offers with Textlocal

Independence day is almost here! It's easy to go overboard and send 'something' to your customers, even if it's not relevant or not of value to them. You need to ensure they're not overwhelmed with too many SMS. At Textlocal, we believe in sending SMS judiciously to your opted-in customers. So, if you really do have something to say to your opted-in users - e.g. if you want to introduce Independence Day-specific products or services - we’ve got some tips for you:

  • Give a personal touch to your SMS: Easily personalize your messages with name and other personal info using merge fields.
  • Draw attention with regional language texts: Use Textlocal transliteration tool to easily compose SMS in 20+ regional languages and appeal to more people.
  • Delight your customers with special offers: Create & send unique vouchers, discount coupons and more in your SMS campaigns and get better responses.
  • Attach files in your SMS campaigns: Convey more within 160 characters with Textlocal attachments. Easily insert images, videos, brochures or any other file and let your customers access rich media content on their smartphones.
  • Track interactions and reach out to customers directly: Textlocal enables you to easily track clicks on the shortlinks in your SMS along with the mobile number, time and date of the click etc. Call those who showed interest directly and close the sale.
  • Grow your database: Include long/short codes and missed call numbers in your marketing collateral (website, brochures, outdoor ads, in-store etc) and let users opt-in/subscribe to your offers. It's a great opportunity to build your database and turn casual visitors into loyal customers.
