SMS and Viber messaging is a great way to reach customers on their mobile devices, and particularly effective for Valentine's Day and here is why:
- It's quick, easy, and less expensive to send out messages
- People typically read messages faster than emails, so your message will have a higher chance of being seen and responded to.
- Viber and SMS messaging ensure your message reaches your customers directly on their mobile devices and through the apps they use for personal communication. This helps connect with your audience on an intimate level which can build a strong bond between you and your customers.
- On Viber, you can add design elements such as images, videos and emojis to improve the look and feel of your campaigns. This will help them stand out from the competition and make them more engaged.
Need some creative campaign ideas?
Offer special discounts or promotions to your customers on Valentine's Day. This can be a great way to incentivize customers to make a purchase, and it also shows that you're thinking of them on this special day.
Send your customers a personalized message that includes their name and a romantic quote or message. This will help to make the message feel more personal and memorable.
Quizzes and games
Create a fun quiz or game that your customers can play through SMS or Viber. This can be a great way to engage your customers and get them thinking about your brand on Valentine's Day.
What about some quick and easy tips?
Keep it simple: SMS and Viber messages should be short and to the point, so make sure your copy is concise and easy to read.
Be creative: Use playful language and interesting visuals to make your message stand out from the crowd.
Be timely: Timing is everything when it comes to Viber and SMS messaging, so make sure your messages are sent at the right time for maximum impact. -– don't bombard recipients with too many messages at once in order not to overwhelm them! Instead, choose a few key dates during the month leading up to Valentine's Day and focus all your energy there instead!
Use a call to action: Encourage your customers to act by including a clear call to action in your SMS and Viber messages.
