For small business owners, we are hard pressed to find another method of marketing that’s as immediately effective (and as cost effective!) as text message (SMS) marketing! If you’re not sure where to start, but you know you just want to “get more people in the gym” or you want to “stay in touch with your current clients or members” this is the right place.
What’s something within arms distance of you right now? Probably your keys and your phone, right? Text message marketing is done by all the “big boys” and now it’s available (for an incredibly reasonably fee) to you. For the gym owners and fitness professionals especially, this form of marketing is incredibly effective. You can text fitness tips to your clients, collect a list of all your group ex students, send out schedule changes to your members, and so much more. Remember also that this is NOT spamming! People opt-in to your SMS list, just like they have to opt-in to an email list. They WANT to hear from you!
What is Text Message (SMS) Marketing?
Have you ever seen a sign in a business that said something like, “Text cc55 to 71441 to opt-in for special VIP only offers!” (Or something to that effect?) You know where American Idol (and other shows) ask the audience to “text XXX to vote for YYY person!” That’s SMS marketing, and it’s done by all the large brands (in all industries) and now you can do it too to not only reach your existing customers, but to build a list of new ones as well.
Why Do You Need Text Message Marketing?
Most business owners get confused about all this “marketing stuff.” They don’t know where to start. . .and that’s understandable. What they DO know is that they want more customers, plain and simple. SEO, social media, Local Buzz, and other services–while also very important–take a bit of education to understand. However, everyone knows what a text message is. Business owners “get it” right out of the gate for the most part, and customers absolutely respond. Plain and simple. Like email, they must opt-in, and unlike mailed coupons for example, SMS coupons are 8 times more likely to be redeemed than coupons sent through email and 90% of these messages are opened up within just 3 minutes!
You need text message marketing to keep in touch with your clients, keep them motivated, send them tips during the day, keep in touch with current members, reward your new ones, and much more. There are a lot of verticals that work well with text message marketing, but the fitness and wellness space is easily one of the best for this particular form of marketing!
