Is SMS Part of Your Black Friday Strategy?

Hey, e-commerce warriors! It’s that time of year again – Black Friday is just around the corner. The big question is: Is SMS (that’s good old text messaging) part of your Black Friday battle plan? If you’re not already using this powerful tool in your strategy, it’s time to give it some serious thought.

Why SMS on Black Friday?

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of adding SMS to your Black Friday playbook, let’s talk about why it’s a game-changer. Black Friday is all about quick decisions, limited-time offers, and the rush of scoring deals. And guess what? Text messages are lightning fast and direct.

Start Early: Plan Your SMS Strategy

Black Friday waits for no one, and neither should your SMS game plan. The key to success is starting early. Waiting until the last minute could mean missed opportunities.

Segmentation for a Personal Touch

Just like with your email marketing, segmentation is your secret sauce with SMS. Not everyone on your list is the same. Segment your audience based on their preferences and buying behavior. This way, you can send targeted SMS offers that are more likely to hit the mark.

Craft Snappy SMS Messages

SMS is all about brevity. You’ve got to make every character count. Craft snappy, attention-grabbing messages that highlight your best Black Friday deals. Consider using emojis to add a touch of fun and excitement.

Countdown to Black Friday with SMS Teasers

Remember the power of anticipation? Send out SMS teasers in the days leading up to Black Friday. Let your customers know what’s in store for them – exclusive deals, flash sales, or early access. Building that sense of excitement can boost engagement and sales.

Optimise for Mobile (Duh!)

We all know that everyone’s glued to their smartphones. So, your SMS messages better look good on those tiny screens. Keep your messages short, sweet, and easy to read on mobile devices.

Test and Test Some More

Before you hit “send,” test your SMS messages. Make sure the links work, and the messages display properly on various devices. No one likes a broken link on Black Friday!

Timing is Everything

Texting in the middle of the night? Not cool. Timing is crucial with SMS. Send messages when your audience is most likely to be awake and ready to shop. It’s all about finding that sweet spot.

The Aftermath: Post-Black Friday SMS Follow-Up

Don’t drop the ball after Black Friday. Send follow-up SMS messages to thank your customers for their purchases, offer special deals for Cyber Monday, or share any remaining promotions. Keep the excitement alive.
