“The best way to get something done is to begin”

The unknown author of the quote above makes a point that we can all recognise. Procrastination in putting a mobile marketing plan together is completely understandable. Inertia is a powerful force. To counter this, one of the strengths of mobile marketing is that you can get going quickly and efficiently and with next to no budget.

There will be no need for committees, conference calls or meetings in bland hotels halfway up the M5. You will be able to set up a free bulk SMS account and have your first SMS campaign out the door is something less than half an hour.

Mobile marketing isn’t mysterious or complicated, you just need to have an idea about what you like to communicate with your customers, prospects or staff . You only have 160 characters to get your point across, so you’ll not need to chew your pencil, agonising about the right creative.

Set up an account now, used promo code NIRVANA10 and your account will come preloaded with 100 free text credits, so your first SMS marketing campaign could cost you nothing. Using your bulk SMS account is very straightforward and intuitive. In terms of button pressing help you can either watch a video on the basics or if you prefer you can download full written documentation.

When you first log into your account, you’ll be taken to a screen called Quick Send. From here, you can send yourself a test message from just one screen. You simply copy and paste your numbers , write your message and press submit .

So now could be the time to get started. If you would like to chat through how mobile marketing could work for you, please feel free to call us on (0117) 205 0202.
