Marketing is a huge and very important part of running your company or business. It allows you to spread the word about your company. It allows you to generate sales and in doing so generate profits by getting your messages across to the public.

However, you may well be interested in a specific portion of the public only. You are not interested in every person out there because not every person is going to be interested in your products or services.

You want to flag the attention of only those who are interested in your business and what you can offer. So how do you go about targeting that specific portion of the market without spending huge amounts of money in the process?

You want to save money and increase customer awareness of your brand. SMS marketing could be your key. SMS marketing is extremely specific and precise. You will only send your advertisements to those who are keen on knowing what your business is up to.

This is a very important aspect of SMS marketing.  It means that you are only paying for what you are getting, namely exposure to the right target market. By targeting a very specific market directly you are increasing your chances of a great return on your investment through sales.

The best way to gain a SMS marketing list is to allow and offer your client base the option to ‘opt in’. It is also a good idea to offer freebies such as coupons or entries into competitions. Freebies, no matter how small, are an incentive to encourage interested potential customers to opt in to receive texts from your business.
