Benefits of Bulk SMS Advertising

Benefits of Bulk SMS Advertising 150 150 ediarosms.com

We know that SMS is the latest and quickest way to market a business. Many still think that Bulk SMS services are meant for only certain types of businesses. A few people worry that using SMS marketing may seem intrusive and so they are sceptical about using SMS as a tool for marketing. But this is not true. ediarosms offers Bulk SMS marketing for all types of businesses. Listed below are the benefits of Bulk SMS messaging for your business.

 

Rapidity
We all know the speed at which SMS works. SMS messages are quickly sent, read more or less instantly (within 5 seconds on average) and quickly responded to. Once you send it into a bulk SMS gateway, text messages take seconds to be sent out. Bulk SMS works at a much higher pace compared to emails, which are now being considered
outdated for marketing. With this in mind, if you want your messages to be read by the highest number of people in your marketing database, choose SMS text marketing.

 

Shoot on target
Business owners and marketing managers used to send out marketing messages in the hope that they would land on their target audience. Those days are gone as now. It is essential for a company to make sure that their marketing messages are highly targeted as possible. Bulk SMS marketing is permission based i.e. those who receive your
messages will either already have a relationship with you or have previously agreed to receive marketing messages from you.

 

Low Cost and High ROI
For small to medium sized businesses the cost of outdoor advertising like Newspaper ads, TV commercials among others is very exhorbitant. On the other hand, Bulk SMS services have low set up and running costs. Campaigns can be launched and implemented for a tiny fraction of cost, yet you can contact 1000 targeted customers in a
matter of seconds.

 

Integration with marketing & advertising campaigns
One major benefits of Bulk text messaging is the potential it has when it is integrated into marketing campaigns. Social and traditional media are not always the most effective methods to reach your customers on time. Simply incorporate SMS with other marketing methods and reach your target audience on time ensuring that they know
what you are offering.

 

Straight to the point
An SMS message is not an essay. Keep it precise, short and meaningful. 1 SMS credit allows you 160 characters in a text (similar to twitter), so use it wisely. Extra characters over 160 cost the price of an extra credit. It will be much easier for the customer to read the message because it’s shorter than most emails.

 

Saves Money
Time is money, and SMS marketing saves huge amounts of time. By scheduling SMS components, you can organize your SMS marketing campaigns for later dates. This is a great way to manage your time efficiently.

Tips to create perfect SMS Marketing broadcast

Tips to create perfect SMS Marketing broadcast 150 150 ediarosms.com

The only thing in life is change, is either you change or go into extinction. The key is to keep trying new things until you achieve your objective: whether it is to improve customer conversion, increase sales, or engender greater stakeholder engagement – by creating the perfect broadcast. This is a custom guide to enable you get the most out of your mobile messaging campaign.

So how can you improve the quality of your broadcast? Over the years, we have studied the most successful campaigns from our customers and identified the key components of success, and summarised them into a best practice guide.

 

1. Don’t Use Text Language

Sending text that contain a message such as ‘BRB, TTYL, 4, GR8, DEALS!’ is unprofessional and sends the wrong image about your company. Always use proper language and grammar otherwise people might not be able to understand the message, and if they do they probably won’t take you seriously!

 

2. Have A Clear Call To Action

You need to be clear about what you want them to do, and how you want them to do it. For example if you want them to visit your website, simply put ‘Visit us online now www.ediarosms.com. Or if you want them to call you, ‘Call Now on 08095029999’ To make sure the recipient acts upon the text, you should also explain the benefits.

 

3. Make It Personal

Make use of our Dynamic messages which allow you to insert elect the field that you wish to be dynamic in your contact list (e.g. first name, customer account number, unique voucher code etc.), and your broadcast can then send customer-specific messages to each of your contacts. It means your campaign has a more personalised
approach, and is more relevant to your customer.

 

4. Let Your Customer Know Who You Are

This one seems obvious but we have seen many SMS messages sent without them actually clearly stating who they are. ediarosms.com enables the broadcaster to enter a maximum 11 alphanumeric characters in the Sender ID field, and this can be great way to develop brand identity in your campaigns. It can be a powerful marketing tool
to have the text message appearing to come from your company name. If you have multiple company names, product names and other distinguishable characteristics, update the sender ID field accordingly to let customers easily know who you are.

 

5. Message length

A text message is only 160 characters so you need to keep it simple, concise and clear. A text message is a lot more effective if you stick to the point, tell them the benefits/advantages and have a clear call to action.

 

6. Time It Right

Sending your text message at the right time is very important, you don’t need to be waking people up at night, or disturbing them first thing in the morning. From experience, the most effective time to send an SMS campaign is at lunchtime between 12 – 2pm, also late afternoon when people are coming to the end of their workday and 8am on saturday morning, depending on your objectives and target audience. These are just guidelines and can vary from business to business. With ediarosms scheduling feature you can choose a day and a time you want your sms to be sent out so it is convenient for you aswell.

 

7. Attention Grabber

With certain pieces of advertising you only have 3 seconds to grab audience attention. With a text message you will normally have their attention as soon as they hear their phone go off, but in order to keep their attention you need to make sure that your message contains an ‘Attention Grabber’ We have found
that starting your message with one or two capitalised words such as ‘TODAY ONLY’ or ‘BIG NEWS’ works really well.

 

8. Clean Up Your Database

Sending text messages to old or inactive numbers means you are wasting money. ediarosms state of the art platform will automatically exclude all duplicate numbers, and in addition, after a broadcast you will be notified the results of successful delivery and inactive numbers. This means you can exclude these numbers from future broadcasts, saving you money and increasing your delivery percentage.

 

9. Monitor Your Results

The first thing you will want to know after sending out your bulk SMS campaign is the delivery result, i.e. how many of the messages were successfully delivered, and how many bounced. Voodoo SMS provides our customers with several KPIs to measure the success of each sent message. Analysis of this invaluable real time information is
essential for designing future campaigns, and making them even more effective.

 

10. Allow People To Opt Out

The last thing you will want to do is annoy your customers so it is important to give them the option to opt out if they so wish. This will also reduce your costs and increase your response rate as you won’t be sending text messages to people that aren’t interested in them.

How Tertiary Institution Departmental Associations Can Use Bulk SMS

How Tertiary Institution Departmental Associations Can Use Bulk SMS 150 150 ediarosms.com

All departments in tertiary institutions have an association that governs or controls the general activities of the department. There is an executive body comprising of majorly the president, the vice-president, the General Secretary, the treasurer, the public relation officer (PRO), the financial secretary, director of sports, director of socials, among others.

All the Executives and the senate members have a responsibility in ensuring the department is ran smoothly and moved forward, and bulk SMS can help make the work less difficult. Here are some ways the association can use bulk SMS effectively.

 

 

EXCO’S MEETINGS : The department’s Public Relations Officer (PRO) has the responsibility of informing executive members of the association of upcoming executives meetings. Bulk SMS can be used to pass this across fast. Also, if there are assignments given to members of the department executives, reminders and follow-ups can be directed through the use of bulk SMS. Committees can also be organized through the use of this medium.

 

 

CONGRESS AWARENESS : Departmental associations usually hold a congress from time to time, where issues concerning the department are trashed out. The public relations officer (PRO) is in charge of creating awareness among students of the association for this congress. Conventionally, in most schools, cardboards are usually used to get the information across. Most times though many students who don’t see this are not aware of that.

With bulk SMS though, the congress time and date can be communicated with all students of the department and you can be certain everyone gets it. What more, it s cheap and very easy to get the phone numbers of the students through the course representative.

 

 

ELECTIONS ORGANISATION/CAMPAIGNS : The present executive of a departmental association administration can use bulk SMS effectively in planning and organizing elections for incoming administration. Aspirants can be communicated with vital information through SMS, and the entire students can also be informed of the election plans, including time and date of elections.

Even aspirants themselves can use bulk SMS for their political campaigns. Get across their manifesto through this means and turn up a large crowd for themselves on election days by just a click through bulk SMS.

 

 

ORGANISING TUTORIALS : Many tertiary institutions departmental associations have programs in place for tutoring the junior students. Tutorials are organized where these students are assisted in better understanding their courses.

Bulk SMS can be used in organizing this. Informing students of the programs for the tutorials and even sending some brief and relevant lessons via a text message.

 

 

EXAMINATION TIMETABLE: It is not uncommon to hear of students coming late for exams or even missing out on an examination all together. The reason for this most times been that most tertiary institutions post examination timetables on notice boards and can be altered or even torn before every students gets to see it.

In the interest of the students of the department, executives of departmental associations can intimate their students with the examination timetable program for each levels through bulk SMS. It can even be an avenue to include a success wish to them. The students will appreciate this.

 

 

EVENTS NOTIFICATION : All departments have annual events such as the orientation of new students and their welcome party, the general conferences of the national body of the association, and sometimes even launching some products of the departmental associations. Awareness for these events can be communicated with the entire students via bulk SMS. Fund raising for some of the events can also be organized through this means, by sending reminders to people who promises support.

 

 

DUES NOTIFICATION : Every departmental association pays dues either per semester or session towards the smooth running of the associations. Once the students resumes, they can be reminded of these dues and the time period the payment should be made. This ease up collection of such dues.

 

 

GENERAL NEWS AND INFORMATION : General information regarding the department and the students can equally be disseminate through the use of bulk SMS. Students wedding ceremonies, unfortunate losses, success messages and holiday greetings can equally be sent as a text message. It’s cheap and reaches everybody, making it very effective.

Every association, small or large, professional or voluntary, needs effective organization to reach her objectives. Bulk SMS has been proven to be efficient in this regard, and tertiary institutions departmental associations are not an exception.

IF you are planning on running for an executive position in a school departmental association, or currently belong to one, and needs an affordable and efficient bulk SMS platform, you can register a free one here.

 

To get started, open a bulk sms account, click here to open the account, and begin sending sms to your members.

How to Use Bulk SMS to Manage Your School

How to Use Bulk SMS to Manage Your School 150 150 ediarosms.com

The questions that’s usually at the mind of a School HeadMaster/HeadMistress, Principal, Provost, Rector or Vice Chancellor are similar. This are usually circled around how do they increase the students population every session, reduce the rate at which angry parents flocks to the school, always complaining of one thing or the other is becoming alarming and parents are taking their kids every day. You ask yourself “How do I manage this school? Aren’t we going down? Or maybe you just established your dream school and you need help on where to start to manage it effectively?

Well, look not too far away, the answer is right there in your pocket. Bulk SMS can transform your school in terms of management in wonderful ways you never expected.

Below are ways you can use bulk SMS to manage your school effectively:

1. ADVERTISEMENT:
If you are thinking of increasing the population of your school in no time, then advertisement should be an integral part of your management plans. Bulk SMS marketing has been found very effective for lots of firms, organizations and businesses in the area of growing them, and schools aren’t an exception.

 

 

2. EFFICIENT PARENTS-TEACHERS ASSOCIATION’S (PTA) MEETINGS:
Lots of schools have the PTA that provides an avenue for parents and teachers to come together and discuss pertinent issues about the school and the student’s welfare.
Bulk SMS effectiveness for this purpose will be in the area of increasing attendance to such associations meetings by making bulk SMS a mode of reminder, and also reduce cost of inviting the parents through letters as bulk SMS has been proven cheaper. Infact, as your school grows, which bulk SMS will undoubtedly do for you, you might start using short codes in the messages to confirm attendance of these parents.

 

 

3. INFORMING PARENTS OF THEIR KIDS’ ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE:
The innate desire for their children to succeed. That is their dreams. Schools are excellent opportunities to groom them to attain the top status in life. Every parent will be extremely happy to get information about the performance of their children in school. Intimating them with this information through bulk SMS is very effective.
Not only will it make their trust in you strong, it can also improve the students and very good for the image and status of your school.

 

 

4. FUNDRAISING:
As your school keeps growing, it becomes unavoidably important to carry out some major projects in the school so the growth can continue in the same exponential rate.
This is where source for funds comes in. While the conventional and much official use of letters to request for funds and fundraising ceremonies are quite effective, you can also use bulk SMS to remind the parents of this projects and get all the funds you need to bring it to fruition. You could even make them take the action through the SMS by using “call to actions”.

 

 

5. INFORMING PARENTS OF THEIR KIDS’ SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AND GENERAL BEHAVIOUR:
Nothing makes a parent angrier than spending so much on their kids only to realize they aren’t giving them value for what they spend. No parent will scream at you for giving him information that will help his son/daughter become a better person. On the contrary, they will feel more drawn to you and get the feeling their children are in good hands.

 

 

6. INTIMATING STUDENTS OF IMPORTANT ASSIGNMENTS, DEADLINES AND RUNNING TUTORIALS:
In some secondary schools, a sizeable number of the students have cell phones they use when at home with the supervision of their parents. Bulk SMS can also be an effective way to intimate them about important assignments, deadlines and projects that has to be done. This makes managing of these students more effective. Some educational school clubs like the debaters, quiz and press clubs equally use bulk SMS to organize the meetings and competitions. Even tutorials that boost student’s academic performance can be pushed through bulk SMS. I assure you the parents appreciate this.

 

 

7. LETTING PARENTS KNOW ABOUT LOWER GRADE PUPILS’ HOMEWORK:
Parents will know better that not all their young pupil or children remember when they have homework given to them from school, and who can really blame them, it’s that time in their developmental circle. So instead of simply marking ‘homework’ and writing the date inside the kids textbooks, any parent will appreciate it if they get a message from the school telling them about this homework their pupil or children has got.

 

 

8. INTIMATING PARENTS OF CASES OF EMERGENCIES:
Sometimes, unexpected events might make it expedient for the school to close earlier than usual. The parents deserve to know why their kids are returning home earlier than it should be. They can’t just rely on the not always truthful and not always satisfactory explanation coming from the child. They deserve to hear from you and you know it.

 

 

9. SENDING OF GOODWILL MESSAGES ON SPECIAL DAYS:
During special days like holidays and other important celebrations, you can send goodwill messages to your students’ parents. Some schools even send messages acknowledging the students’ birthdays to their parents, and that makes the parents feel their kids are loved. And what more? Special days like the Christmas and New Year celebrations comes usually come around when the students are on holidays. Do you know what a message to the parents during this time will do for you? It makes you remain in their mind for the upcoming session.

 

 

10. INFORM PARENTS ABOUT TUITION FEES, EXAMS DATES AND RESUMPTION DATES:

They might not tell you in most cases, but I tell you, parents always want to be informed about all the happenings in their children’s school. Such is their strong desire to see their kid do well. Tuition fees for new terms, dates of upcoming exams and even the next term or next session resumption dates can be communicated with parents via SMS. It’s cheaper and very effective.
The above mentioned points are very effective means of managing your school, but they are far from been the only ones.

How to Collect Customers Mobile Number for SMS Marketing

How to Collect Customers Mobile Number for SMS Marketing 150 150 ediarosms.com

Over the years, there has been many questions asked by Small Medium and Large Scale Business owners and Marketers, which is how I get the contacts of our existing and or new customers – so as to be able to contact them periodically.

There is no universal approach for collecting the customcontacts in your office or store easily, as a matter of fact your line of business is the main determining factor. To simplify this process, follow the simple step by step process below:

SMS has been growing in leaps and bounds over the years. The reason for this is simple, it’s cheap cost (when bought in bulk) and also easy to track the return on investment (ROI).

A very unique feature of SMS marketing is its direct and personal feature. Look at it this way: If you send your customers a marketing email, it’s probably just one of dozens they’ll receive that day. Chances are that only a few of them will open your email, meaning you’d need to send it to thousands of potential customers to make
the exercise worthwhile.

That’s not the case with SMS. Most people receive relatively few text messages from businesses (we’ll look at why in a moment), and it’s very hard to ignore a text when it arrives.Even you, anytime you receive an SMS, chances are that you will not wait until you open the message to know the content.

If you send 10,000 emails in a marketing campaign, only a few hundred will likely be read—even if you have a brilliant headline, great copy, and a must-have offer. But if you send SMS text to 10,000 people, you can be sure that nearly all your recipients will read your message. If your conversion rate for SMS marketing is close to your conversion rate for emails, that translates to 10 or 20 times as much business.

Is that stimulating your interest? Before you start collecting customers’ mobile numbers for SMS marketing, you need three essentials in place: a great offer, the right technology, and most important—your customers’ trust.

 

 

A Question of Trust
There’s a reason most people don’t get as many marketing texts as they get marketing emails. They see their phone numbers as more personal and more valuable than their email addresses, so they are more careful about whom they trust with their number compared with their email address.

The issue of trust is the great advantage that lies at the heart of SMS marketing. Because people are reluctant to give out their numbers, few businesses have those numbers, and so fewer marketing texts are sent compared with marketing emails. The result is that customers are unlikely to get bored with marketing texts the way they’ve become bored by marketing emails.

But trust is also the greatest obstacle that you, as a would-be SMS marketer, have to overcome. How do you persuade customers and potential customers to hand over their mobile numbers?

Obtaining those numbers comes down to your offering and your relationship with the customers you’re targeting. SMS marketing isn’t always great at converting absolutely new, cold customers who know nothing about your product, service or your brand (neither is email). But SMS is devastatingly effective when used on warm leads, or—in particular—when used to drive repeat business.

 

 

Let’s imagine some scenarios:

You run a restaurant.
Some of your customers travel several miles to visit you, and you’d like them to come more often. You collect their mobile numbers and send them the occasional text message—not too many, maybe one every week telling them about a special offer or your Dish of the Day.

You’re an independent financial adviser.
You use SMS to quickly notify customers when a great new product comes along.

 

You run a bike shop, selling new bikes, accessories, and spares.
You also offer servicing. You text your customers to tell them about new offers, or to tell them that their bike is ready to pick up, or to notify them when their order has come in.

Those scenarios are based on driving repeat business in situations where customers have a genuine, proven interest in your product or service. They are all, to use the technical term, examples of permission-based marketing.

 
Getting their Phone Numbers
But how do you persuade your customers to give you their mobile numbers, and let you use them on a continuing basis?

You’ll first need to establish trust. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have several options open to you. Broadly, methods of acquiring mobile numbers from your customers
fall into two major categories: indirect and direct.

 
Indirect acquisition
Indirect acquisition means asking for your customers numbers for purely practical reasons (e.g., letting them know their order has arrived, reminding them about service dates, confirming appointments). That tends to be very effective because customers generally find SMS notifications and reminders very useful. However, if you’re planning to use the numbers for further marketing activity, you must get your customers’ active permission. If you don’t, you’ll probably be breaking your country’s data-protection regulations. Infact in Nigeria, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) introduced Do Not Disturb (DND) to fight the repeat challenge experienced by customers from unsolicited Marketing SMS.

 
Direct acquisition
Direct acquisition means asking for your customers for their mobile phone numbers specifically for the purpose of telling them about products and offers via SMS. It’s a more upfront approach that tends to have a lower success rate than indirect acquisition, but it deals directly with the problem of permission.

 
Keeping the Numbers
Once you’ve gotten the mobile numbers, you need to make sure customers remain happy with your marketing. If a customer asks you to stop sending messages, in most countries the law requires that you do indeed stop.

So, to retain the right to use a customer’s number, you have to keep that customer happy. Don’t text too often (maybe one offer every week, unless you’re really sure of the customer’s loyalty), and make sure you’re sending genuinely good offers that are very likely to appeal to them.

Above all, make sure you’re sticking to those data protection rules—both in your country and your recipient’s country (if it’s different from yours).

Different legal systems offer different levels of protection for consumers regarding data security and marketing, but it’s best to do a bit of research before you start your campaign. If you understand the relevant laws, you shouldn’t find them too much of a burden—and they’ll help you deliver a legal, effective, customer-
friendly campaign.

 

How to collect customers details

 

 

Your Website
Technology plays a role in how you’ll actually deliver your messages. Obviously, you don’t want to be manually sending each text from your own phone it will be tasking, tiring and boring. That’s why ediarosms.com exists, we allow you to send sms directly from your website if you need. You can send and receive bulk SMS from your website you can also manage and build SMS contact lists and group them according to your preference.

You can create a form on your website. This method is effective because it saves time.

You can also take your website a step further by collecting the contact details, saving the details on it and within the site admin backend, sending sms text message to a single or group of people on your contact list and also schedule the message deliver for a specified time, day, week, month or year.

 

 

Order and Store Management Software
Many Stores and Supermarket has existing hardware device and bar code scanner for managing their orders. Concurrently, the system also has feature for loyalty reward, customer Name, phone number among others. Sadly this feature is usually under utilised by the store owners.

You can contact your IT Team to activate this feature and ensure the Name and Phone number details are received at the point of order, just as Domino Pizza usually does across their branches in Nigeria. Afterwards, you can integrate ediarosms.com gateway API into it to enable you send message directly to them from your system. If this will be cumbersome, you can simply download the contacts save on a periodic basis (daily, weekly or monthly), upload it directly to your account on ediarosms and communicate with them directly from there. Our integration team will be available to work with you to make this process seamless and successfull if needed.

 

 

Smart Phone
You can also receive the details and also collect the customer details on a mobile phone. Get an affordable mobile phone, make sure it’s smart phone (e.g Android, IOS or Blackberry) and save the details on it. Afterwards, syncronise the phone contacts with your PC or Email and extract them. Then login to your ediarosms.com account, upload the contacts to your contact list or group and begin sending messages to them.

 

 

Manual Paper Receipt
Generally, when Customers place an order, their name, address and phone number are usually entered on the receipt. Your sales staff can can manually type this detail in Microsoft Excel when they are less busy (using a PC, IPAD or other). The contacts will then be uploaded at close of work daily, weekly or whatever duration you deem
suitable for your business/industry.

You can also create an excel document on a pc and/or paper hardcover, where your accountant wll save or write the contacts after receiving payment from the customer

 

 

 

Paper Form
You can create a paper form making phone number and Name compulsory field for virtually anything (e.g survey,questionaire, membership form, loyalty reward form etc), share to your Customers to at office, store or exhibition, get a staff to type and save them. Afterwards, you can use it to send them an sms.

Practical Ways of Promoting a Restaurant with BULK SMS

Practical Ways of Promoting a Restaurant with BULK SMS 150 150 ediarosms.com

Food joints, Mama Put, Chinese eateries, Hotel Restaurants and other continental eateries are springing up everyday, this makes the industry competition very fierce. Those that can innovate succed, others die a natural death.

This led to a need for unique way of promoting your restaurant that will give you a diffrent result. Below are practical steps you can use ediarosms.com to promote your restaurant business:

 

 

#1. RESTAURANT: Fill up a slow day

Have Cool Marketing Group send your opt-in subscriber list a discount coupon or offer that expires in 4 to 8 hours. Let’s say Tuesday from 12pm to 1pm is one of your slowest days and times of the week. Offer a FREE drink to everyone who shows up at your eatery and shows their promotional text message to the waitress. For example, asuming you have 300 people on your “weekday” Bulk SMS subscriber list. Request we send out your FREE drink offer Tuesday morning around 11am, right when people are thinking of food and drink. You’ll probably get around a 10-15% response rate. Now you’ve turned your near- empty restaurant into one with some energy and about 30-40 people.

Nothing drives sales up than passionate crowd all aroud clamouring to be served in the restaurant. This assures customers you are good at what you do, foster word of mouth advert and becomes a converging point for meetings and discussions.

 

 
#2. RESTAURANTS: Stop wasting products

If you have 10 steaks in your walk-in that won’t make it another day, then offer them at a major discount (half off?) to the first 10 customers. Think about it, no more waste. When your chef needs to use an item up quickly, have a text message sent to your subscriber list and offer the first customers to respond a nice discount on those specific items. Putting a limit on the number of discounts (first 10 or first 20) available is a great way to drive the results you’re looking for. From your opt-in subscriber’s frame of mind, fear of loss or missing out is the biggest motivator of all. Many restaurant owners and managers would never think of this tactic but it is one of many creative Bulk SMS marketing ideas.

 

 
#3. RESTAURANTS: Let it rain

When rain is impending send out a Bulk SMS alert to your subscriber list offering them a deal that can’t be missed. Remember, fear of loss is a big motivator, especially when the offer is only valid for a few hours or one day. Your text message can say something like “Hi (customer’s name). It’s (your name) from (your restaurant) and I’ve got a sweet rainy day deal to pass on. Today ONLY WHILE ITS RAINING come in and get (your cool, valuable and exclusive offer). Just show this text msg.

Take advantage of strange or typical weather when you have access to unlimited Bulk SMS marketing ideas and message requests with ediarosms.com.

 

To get started with your bulk sms marketing, just like domino Pizza does at point of payment, collect your customer name and phone number and save it. Save the contact and upload into your account, if you don’t have an sms account, click here to setup an account and begin sending an SMS.
