Why is SMS/Text Message the best alternative to Email?

We all are overwhelmed with the number of emails that we send and receive these days. A person’s inbox is flooded with all kinds of emails viz., work, personal and ads.

This makes it difficult for marketers and agencies of any kind to reach out aloud with their marketing content. Their email marketing messages get buried with other emails leading to poor opening rate. (The average person receives 121 emails per day.) What’s crazy is that over 50% of all this email traffic is spam.

Brands are seeking out alternatives to email marketing and no doubt text messaging takes the top spot with its better delivery and opening rate..
