- Make use of the Image, Video aand Audio functions in Zigatext Extensible SMS
People want to see what you have to offer. Using plain texts is good but if you really want to catch your customer’s attention you have to literally put the image of your products in their head by using Pictures, Videos, and even audio.
Let’s take 2 restaurants as an example. Restaurant “A” sends a normal SMS to potential customers, listing the type of dishes they have for sale. While Restaurant “B” sends an SMS to potential customers too but didn’t just stop at listing the dishes but also included a short video clip of the meals and even how people enjoy eating them.
Now, this is not rocket science but we both know that Restaurant “B” will have an increase in their customer base which will, in turn, result in an increase in sales and ultimately more profit while Restaurant “A” might end up getting few or no responses at all.
- Take advantage of every event and holiday
You may think this is insignificant but it’s very important. People are prone to spend more, try out new products and patronize new businesses during special events and holidays. Think about what is going on in recent events that you can tie into. How can you use these events to generate more awareness for your brand, and work to bring them into your stores? So if you want more customers, be event-oriented.
- Capture SMS Newsletter subscribers from your websites
You can integrate Zigatext app into your website and capture phone numbers and names from your website visitors and automatically subscribe them to a particular newsletter list for future follow-ups and messages.
