Here are a few best practices to avoid being recognized as a spam texter when texting your customers:
- Decrease the sending speed (see tutorial below)
- Limit messages to 160 characters or less
- Increase engagement by asking for reply
- Do not send links. Instead, in your initial text, ask for the customer to reply if they’d like a link to the catalog or website
- Avoid Images/Video Attachments
VERY IMPORTANT: View this video to change the send rate so that all of your texts reach your customers.
Tip: You can copy these scripts to a word doc and customize them so they are more “you”, then you can reuse them each month after updating products and catalog links 🙂 Find the Catalog Shortlinks Here.
