How can your business use SMS attachments?

Instead of simply telling your customers about a promotion, why not show it? Visual files will ensure that customers remember your company. Restaurants can send menus and offers via text. Events companies can send calendars, surveys and agendas.

Text attachments don’t cost a penny. The only thing you will be paying for is the SMS. Redtie allows you to attach PDFs, images and Word documents upto 100 Mb file size.

Menus:

Don’t wait for customers to pick up one of your menus, attach it to a text message and send it out to your opt-in database.

PDF Brochures:

Direct Mail is typically expensive and produces low response rates. Attaching a PDF brochure to a text message carries no additional costs and delivers a far greater chance of your brochure being read.

Photo Attachments:

Attach a JPEG to your text message to easily transmit pictures in the most cost effective way.

Communicating with customers through text message is personal and convenient.

Open rates and click through rates on branded text messages are showing that customers respond to this style of communication, and it provides you with a valuable way to form connections with customers that can be difficult to forge as an online business.

When you add text messages to your eCommerce marketing strategy, you have an easy way to stay in touch, foster customer loyalty, and let shoppers know about what you have going on that might be of interest to them.
