Using The Power of a Text Message To Build Business

Talking? It’s something everybody’s doing nowadays. Look around and just see how many cell phones you count. Cell phones are the new untapped business media that’s waiting to be tapped.

Just how do you tap into this market? Many bigger companies already do. They use software to text message their customers and clients. A lot of this is done on a national scale and most people view them as occasional service messages.

The big opportunity for text message marketing is local businesses. Statistics show 95% of local merchants have yet to get into using text messages as a business tool. How can it benefit your business?

  • Get your client list growing. If you are a home business, this one idea can get the word out about what you do really fast.
  • Product sales to get new business. Send out text messages on your newest product and offer incentives to your current customers to bring someone new to look at what you have.
  • Act as the guru. Offer your service as a text-messaging expert to other business owners and get a new revenue stream. They will be thrilled at the new business you bring and will pay a premium to you to manage it for them.
The potential power of text message advertising on a local scale is just coming into it’s own. Learn to harness it for your business. If you’ve been relying purely on the internet or regular advertising broaden your horizons. This may be the silver bullet you need to take your business to the next level.
