There are so many ways in which you can market your business you may feel a bit overwhelmed with the choice. Text message marketing is being widely used by several companies to target individuals. Often the way it works is that the business creates a text message to send out to a database of their existing or potential customers. It may be that they are asking them to complete a questionnaire about the service they received, informing them of a new product or service that is soon to be launched or asking them to enter a competition for example.

Due to data protection laws, you should have the permission of the person to contact them via text message prior to sending anything out. This is usually obtained at the time you collect any data from them and should be detailed in your privacy policy on the website.

If the customers have opted in to receive messages from such companies, then text message marketing can work quite well as long as you get the balance right and do not send them out too frequently.

A text message can be away of directing someone to a more detailed description of a product or service or news article on your website. As most people have smart phones, you can include html links in the message.
