Although email marketing is our first love, SMS is another great way to communicate with people. Nearly everyone has a mobile phone these days and messages can be delivered in an instant, so it’s a great communication tool if you have a short message to convey. Some people will say SMS can be intrusive and we agree that it’s not suitable for all types of messages. It’s great for a 50% discount on a pizza, but it could also be very useful as a reminder to an event, or to even drive people to your website.
