Happy New Year and happy 2020!
The festivities may have drawn to a close but right now, we’re simply celebrating the fact that we’re still on the good side of January. The one where new year resolutions are still in place and we’re all feeling a little nostalgic.
So before we hit the January blues and the realisation that a daily 5am alarm, may not actually turn us into the next Bill Gates; we thought we’d share our top 10 performing blogs from 2019. Get those ideas flowing with some of our best content from the past year.
Let the countdown commence:
Every so often we have someone ask – “Isn’t SMS dead?” and the simple answer is no. Not at all. But to add a little more weight and prove it’s not just our bias, we dug into our platform data and pulled the stats.
Let’s be honest, you see pizza, you want pizza. This post is a great example of how our SMS landing pages can be used to boost sales in the food outlet industry.
A mobile solution needs to allow businesses to communicate with their customers, allow customers to connect with the business, quickly collect feedback and provide multiple ways to collect customer information. This blog details how SMS can assist with each of these 4 key areas.
There are 3 ways that businesses of all shapes and sizes can send SMS. You can send bulk messages using an online platform, easily have a conversation with your customers using Email2SMS, and hook up your CRM, website, or software, so you can send SMS messages automatically with an API. Each option will suit some businesses better than others and this blog provides a great overview of each, so you can make an informed decision.
Every campaign needs a strong and simple call to action for customers to follow to ensure it is a success. This post details the top four calls to action for SMS marketing messages.
This post started as a challenge to fit in as many ship related puns as possible and ended up, addressing the 4 main reasons why businesses stop using Text Marketer.

At Text Marketer, we’re proud to provide SMS solutions to hundreds of retailers and this piece highlights some really interesting stats and views on the importance of mobile, in the changing shopping landscape.
Missed appointments are a real issue for businesses and sometimes you can be a little too close to the problem. So this post is great for any individual that needs a more concrete idea of exactly what to send to their customers and clients, in a bid to keep missed appointments to a minimum.
Okay, confession time – this post was actually first and whilst we’re thrilled it’s helping you all, our ego couldn’t take the hit so we’ve placed it second… don’t tell anyone. Perfect for anyone wanting a step-by-step guide on how to extract a mobile number from a cell containing text in Excel, see what we did there.
We’re thrilled this post has received the most *wink* traffic! It’s a brief overview of tips and knowledge we’ve learnt over the years, compiled to ensure you make the most of your SMS campaigns.
