Intro to SMS Marketing

The way businesses and organizations communicate with their customers & members is evolving!

Marketing communications have shifted to the online domain, where information is freely available, and even accessible in the palm of your hand with the introduction of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Interactive websites, social networks, and e-mail have completely taken over this online domain, bringing information to consumers like never before.

However, text messaging still remains the most powerful communication tool for mobile devices. Unlimited text messaging plans come standard from most carriers, while internet data rates continue to go through the roof in Canada!

When sending a text message isn’t enough, MMS has emerged in recent years to send mutimedia such as photos, videos, ringtones, and voice clips over the same network.

Today’s cellphones are usually capable of receiving MMS messages, but older phones may not.
