Text message advertising is one of the fastest growing marketing mediums worldwide. 86% of the United States owns a mobile phone, and 98% of all cell phones are automatically set up for texting. What does this mean to you? It means that a huge amount of people are available so that you can build your client list!
On average text messages are read within 15 minutes and responded to within the hour. This means that by getting someone’s mobile number, you can instantly send them promotional texts that will almost certainly be read. No other form of marketing can say that!
More people now have a mobile phone that an Internet-connected PC in the U.S. and globally. Infact, 60% of cell phone users admit to always having their cell phone on them, no matter what.
People have to be at your location to see a posted advertisement. People have to be online to see a web page, video, or ad. But once they text your number only once, you can reach them anytime anywhere!
