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.

About the new Do-Not-Disturb policy (SENDING MESSAGE TO DND NO)

About the new Do-Not-Disturb policy (SENDING MESSAGE TO DND NO) 150 150 ediarosms.com

Please be informed that the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has directed all Telecommunications Company (MTN, GLO, Airtel, Etisalat, etc.) to allow existing subscribers to opt-in to receive SMS on Telemarketing, including but not limited to Value Added Services, e.g. flight schedule, weather forecast etc. in conformity with Part 111, section 20 (2) of CCPR, while consent of new subscribers will be sought to opt-in at the beginning of the contract.

MTN NG has in response, implemented a Full Blocking mode for Do-Not-Disturb on some numbers without the consent of the subscribers on their network.

The implication of this is that, all bulk SMS that is sent to phone numbers that have been placed on Do-Not-Disturb by MTN NG will be rejected and you will still be charged, because the networks charge us for all submissions regardless of the status.

This is a general directive affecting unsolicited messages (Bulk SMS) only, phone to phone messages and bank alerts are not affected, and it has been in force since the 1st of July, 2016.

We therefore advise all stakeholders to inform their recipients whose numbers are on the DND list (as indicated by the rejected SMS shown in the delivery report) to contact their respective networks to have them removed from the DND list before their numbers can be allowed to receive Bulk SMS on them.

 

Corporate Route: Final Solution to Do-Not-Disturb (DND).
Since the implimentation of Do-Not-Disturb (DND), it has been accorded as laudable as it put a stop to the menace of unsolicited SMS in Nigeria, it has also created a lot headache for Nigerians especially business owners, religious organizations, associations and NGOs. Not left out are individuals that need to invite their family members and friends to events such as wedding ceremony, birthday parties and other social functions.

 

The Corporate Route

Its our pleasure to let you know that we have integrated a lasting solution to this problem that has been plaguing Bulk SMS in Nigeria since June 2016.

To cater to the need of individuals and corporate organizations that have express permission to contact phone numbers on DND by SMS, a provision has been made to deliver their messages via the Corporate Route. Corporate Route allows you send SMS to phone numbers on DND provided you have the expressed permission to do so. It is our pleasure to inform you that such Corporate Route has been integrated on our website ediarosms.com.

We have gone a step further to simplify the process of applying for sender name registration for standard, corporate and financial routes so you can easily do it from your dashboard. To learn about how to register Sender ID and delivery to DND numbers, click here.

 

What Does It Cost to Use the Corporate Route?

A message via the Corporate Route cost N3.00 to Nigeria phone numbers.

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.

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.

Sample Wedding SMS Invitation & Appreciation

Sample Wedding SMS Invitation & Appreciation 150 150 ediarosms.com

ediarosms.com now offers an exciting list of sample template wedding invitation messages and other related sample messages. Some of these messages can be found below.

In the sample messages, you will need to replace the placeholders (ie #….#) with the relevant information. For instance, #TIME# will be replaced with the time of the event (e.g 2:00pm)and #VENUE# with the venue of the event (4 Amilegbe Multi purpose Hall, Ilorin, Kwara State).

An issue that usually occur after an event is that couples and close family that invite people tend to forget to appreciate people that attended their event (usually due to stress of the wedding). To avoid this, you can use our Scheduled SMS feature – to set the date and time the appreciation letter will be sent to all the contacts invitation letter was sent to. This is usually scheduled to a day after the event.
