Announcing our brand new Campaign Builder!

In today's fast-paced world, relying solely on email marketing isn't enough. To stay ahead of the competition and improve customer relations, businesses need a comprehensive customer engagement strategy. And one of the best ways to do that is by combining SMS and email marketing.

 

What are the differences between SMS and email marketing?

SMS marketing, also known as text messaging, is a powerful tool that allows you to send short and concise messages to your customers. It's all about being clever and getting your point across in just 160 characters. SMS marketing has some great benefits, like high open rates and timely delivery. Think of your SMS subscribers as your VIPs – they want the inside scoop!

 

On the other hand, email marketing is all about sending marketing messages directly to your customers' inboxes and keeping them engaged in a broader way. Whether it's sales announcements, newsletters, or abandoned cart reminders, email marketing has proven to be a valuable tool.

 

But here's the thing: when you combine SMS and email marketing, magic happens. You get a scalable, timely, and powerful marketing strategy that delivers the right messages to your customers at the right times.

 

What are the benefits of combining SMS and email marketing?

 

While SMS and email marketing have their own unique benefits, combining them into one strategy can yield even greater results. By using both channels, you can:

 

  • Leverage customer data from one channel to enhance the success of the other.
  • Reach more customers and improve engagement by using multiple channels to promote the same message.
  • Stagger your messages and use each channel strategically to create a seamless and effective customer engagement experience.

 

How do you start using SMS and email marketing together?

 

When running a marketing campaign, think strategically about how you can use both SMS and email marketing together to drive customer engagement. Remember to alternate sending messages on each channel and let your content shine. 

 

 

For example, you can start with an email drip campaign to provide information and build excitement about an upcoming event, and then supplement it with SMS messages closer to the big day to remind customers and create hype. By alternating between the two channels, you create a cohesive message that engages your customers and builds excitement.

 

 

Another example of how to combine SMS and email marketing is to offer timely information via text message while also sending monthly newsletters via email. For instance, a bakery owner might want to share updates about exciting new flavors with SMS subscribers immediately and save broader news about their business for distribution to their email list.
