SMS marketing isn’t just a great thing for for-profit companies. It can also be incredibly beneficial to sporting clubs, fitness and health clubs, community groups, and other such organisations.
Communication is the key to the success of your club and the satisfaction of your members. Modern life inundates us with messages – via direct mail, phone calls, emails, messaging apps, social media, television, radio, and the much –hated telemarketing. By far, people today prefer in most cases to receive messages via SMS.
Unlike email, which has average open rates of around 20% and which may directly land in the junk mail folder, SMS open rates are consistently in the vicinity of 98%. When you communicate via SMS, your message is not only delivered, it is opened and read quickly. Additionally, required responses via SMS are usually prompt too.
SMS is personal; only those who have opted into receiving communications will receive them. It requires no internet connection, so it is convenient and with the vast majority of mobile phones being enabled for SMS, what could be simpler?
When your club or organisation uses SMS text messaging for its communication with members, you are guaranteed of reaching your entire audience almost instantaneously after you send your message.
