Shower in Cash – Mr. Krabs Style Posted on October 3, 2017October 16, 2019 by SureCritic Text messages have a 98% open rate. Which only means positive trends for your business. According to Velocify, a cloud computing company, sales prospects who are sent text messages convert at a rate 40% higher than any other form of communication. Providing you with the easy equation: texting + marketing = Mr. Krabs. The simplicity of text messages makes it easy for a customer to act on the information you’re putting in front of them. No ads to distract them or lead them elsewhere. It’s a one-to-one dialogue that is personal to the customer and makes them feel special and not another cog in the machine. Your message is clear about what they need to do and how to do it. As long as you have the correct number there is no worry that the customer will not receive the text. Technology has your back with this one. They will receive the text and it will be in their “primary” box. No spam filters to work around and no more paying for ads when your customers are almost literally in the palm of your hand. Reach out to them, ask for a review and watch as the foot traffic leads right to your door. I think you can guess how the rest plays out. Take that extra cash and take the ol’ ball and chain out to a nice dinner!
