A successful SMS campaign can be an amazing benefit to your business. However, achieving a successful one is easier said than done.
Are you maximising the potential of your SMS campaigns?
In the first instance, there is the infrastructure required to get an SMS campaign off the ground. A2P technology can be difficult to create, especially for businesses that have never worked with the software before.
And then there's the challenge of laws and regulations, both locally and internationally.
Every region has its own set of rules and regulations regarding the use of mass SMS… rules that differ greatly to the casual SMS messages people send daily. And complying with these laws is difficult from the start, and only become more difficult as your campaign grows.
Finally, there's security to consider.
The success and ubiquity of SMS is, in part, due to its simplicity. That same simplicity however can make SMS very vulnerable to attacks of fraud. This is especially true for businesses sending sensitive account information or one-time passwords over SMS.
So, in order to run a successful SMS campaign, there are a number of key factors to consider first:
Running a successful SMS campaign
For an SMS campaign to be successful, fast delivery is a must.
Delayed SMS messages can lead to unhappy, misinformed, and confused customers; especially when messages contain information like one-time passcodes and account updates.
It's also important for a campaign's delivery rate to be high, as consistently low delivery rates can result in unnecessary overheads.
Secure routing is another key component of successful SMS campaigns.
Because SMS is being used to send sensitive information more frequently, it's becoming increasingly common for hackers and fraudsters to try and intercept consumer SMS messages.
To prevent this from happening, it's important that your messages are sent using the most secure routes possible.
Finally, keeping costs as low as possible is essential.
While SMS campaigns doprovide your service with new opportunities and incentives for prospective customers, they can also become costly very fast. And this is especially true for fast-growing campaigns.
To ensure sustainability, always strive for low cost, streamlined campaign solutions.
