A text reminder service for businesses
According to Text Anywhere, text messages have a 98% open rate. That means that 98 out 100 text messages that are received by each individual are opened. For businesses, this statistic is huge. Businesses are increasingly using text or sms reminder software.
Reminders are a great way to:
- Make sure your customers are not forgetting about their appointments, which can save you time and money.
- Show you care about your customer by sending a friendly reminder.
- Eventually, get positive-only online reviews (more information on that below).
Send automated text reminders
With Text Reminder App, you can schedule your text message reminders days, weeks, months, and even years ahead of when you want them sent. This way, you can fully automate your reminders. We can even connect to your third party software for even more in-depth automation.
Automated text reminders are a great way to set it and forget it.
For example, if you are a dentist, every time a patient comes in for a scheduled cleaning, ask them if they’d like a text, email, phone, or postcard reminder. Chances are, there are a growing number of people that would prefer a simple text. If they say they’d like a text, copy their phone number, drop it into a new scheduled text and forget it!
Easy to use and manage
Text message reminder services are incredibly easy to set up. There are plenty of great services available that make sending and scheduling text message appointment reminders to your customers a breeze. It’s easy as putting in a phone number, selecting your date and time, inputting your message, and scheduling.
After that, good software will allow you to manage messages scheduled in your queue and see a record of sent messages.
Market your business with reminder follow-ups
Warming your customer up to receiving text messages from you, by first sending text message reminders, is a great way to keep an open line of communication with them.
Once your customer gets used to receiving those scheduled text message reminders, they’ll be more inclined to receive marketing-related texts. Be careful with text messages, though. Even more so than email, you need to make sure that what is being sent is incredibly valuable to your customer.
One great way to market your business is by following up with your customer after their appointment with another text.
That text could ask for their feedback. Example:
“How was your experience today at [BUSINESS NAME]? reply back with “good”, “okay”, or “bad” and you’ll be entered to win a monthly $100 Amazon gift card drawing.”
With that reply, you can schedule an automatic follow-up.
If your customer replies to the text with “good,” ask them to leave a review on Google and send a link.
If they reply with “okay” or “bad,” also send them a link, but maybe have that link to a form on your website where the review won’t be public. That feedback will at least help you identify how you can improve the relationship with that particular customer or even improve overall experiences with your business.
