Understanding Planet Text: It is all about the numbers!

We at Mogreet frequently are asked why companies should add mobile text (SMS/MMS) messaging into their marketing mix.

Here are the 3 core reasons why you should be using mobile.

  1. Technology has evolved.  Previously, text marketing was difficult due to the limitations put in place by phone carriers.  Technology has evolved to the point where this is no longer an issue.
  2. 97% of Americans has a cell phone that receives MMS text messages.  Mobile messaging works on feature and smart phones alike.
  3. The Consumer is already texting.  Everyone knows what and how to text.  Unlike QR codes, apps or social-based engagement tools, there is very little education needed to drive consumers into a text marketing program
