How Scheduled Text Messages Can Improve Your Business

Scheduled texts can be used to streamline many business processes, but their greatest application is without a
doubt in the reduction of no-shows. Let’s take a look at the main benefits of scheduled text messages:

Reduce the number of missed appointments

You can schedule texts to remind customers of upcoming appointments.

A way to save money and time

A missed appointment means three things: wasted opportunity, time and money. A simple reminder through SMS can greatly cut down on the number of lost opportunities.

One less thing to worry about

It takes a lot of effort to build a small business. There are a lot of things that you have to think about: equipment, budgeting, materials, employees, marketing, etc. Scheduled text reminders will take some of the weight off your shoulders by helping you better organise your schedule.

Reach out to customers at convenient times

Timing is everything when it comes to SMS marketing. Using TextMagic’s Reporting & Analytics tool, you can identify convenient times to contact your customers. Use this information to schedule texts and watch your open and conversion rates skyrocket.
