I don’t think anyone can take anything away from Rudolph, he does an amazing and unbelievable job of delivering presents worldwide, in an amount of time that seems impossible whether you’re carrying an overweight bearded man behind you or not – But is Rudolph the only one who is delivering effectively this Christmas?

The good old postal service does get a good testing at this time of year. With the millions of Christmas cards and parcels being sent and delivered daily they certainly will be racking up the miles again.

However, this can be problematic for retailers and customers as one of the biggest festive worries is always, ‘will it arrive in time?’

So many retailers are sending out SMS campaigns notifying their customers of their last order dates to guarantee their delivery before Christmas.

SMS delivery

Great customer service is now more important than ever in crowded markets. Great customer service can help turn one customer into a loyal one, and letting them know their parcel or order is out for delivery with a simple text, will give them peace of mind and keep them happy and like to return for more.

However, probably the most impressive thing that SMS can deliver to you this Christmas is… Sales

In all the Christmas madness, marketing ads can get lost, not be seen or forgotten, but a timely text message will never be ignored.

Sending your customers a Christmas mobile marketing campaign is the perfect way to grab some festive sales. We know it worked for Black Friday, 1 out of 4 shoppers came through SMS marketing.

So don’t waste any more time, start lining up your Christmas mobile marketing messages right now, and make sure that your marketing is delivering as effectively as Rudolph always does.
