Discovering Profits recently announced their partnership with Wicoup, the SMS texting platform that is a subsidiary of Tecoup. Tecoup has been recognized as the text message provider for Nascar, Ford Motor Company and other national brands. This new program will soon be available to small and medium sized businesses and will give them the ability to utilize SMS (text messages) marketing to communicate instantly to their patrons.
Brad Stoller, the managing member of Discovering Profits, states that this new program will allow his customers to have a tremendous business advantage and will set themselves up to attract holiday customers instantly. Stoller adds, "A retail store that wants to promote a holiday special, such as “buy 1 get one 50% off” can now simply send a text to all of its subscribers at 1:00 pm announcing a special for “tonight only”. The clients will see the text almost immediately, and can stop by after work to purchase their desired products.”
One method that Stoller is recommending to his clients is to utilize other advertising campaigns to build subscribers now. “Businesses need to plan ahead now by building their customer base immediately. They can simply do this by simply addiing a text number and keyword to their newspaper advertisement. By typing that information into their cell phones, customers immediately receive the latest coupon or even directions to the advertiser’s location as needed. They can also promote to current customers who stop by their store.” Customers can opt out at any time, but they must enter the keyword in order to receive the businesses coupons and specials. Stoller comments, “It is the ultimate in permission based marketing.”
According to numerous sources, mobile text marketing for business is about to explode. According to Wicoup, 97% of all text messages are opened – most within 15 minutes. With the low cost and high open rates, it is easy to see why business owners are flocking to this new advertising medium.
"I'm very excited in that we can truly offer our customers an incredible method to get their message out. I'm also very thrilled that the cost to our customers is incredibly low - they can't even obtain a newspaper add for the power of instant messaging and instant results", states Stoller.
