A great event begins and ends with one thing: successful promotion via Bulk SMS both before and during your event.
Whether it’s a concert, sports match, or play, an unusual event is made even more memorable when the house is packed and the excitement fills the air. The opposite of that can be said, too.
SMS marketing provides an effective way to build brand awareness, attract a more robust audience, and increase event attendance. Without breaking the bank.
In fact, we’ll show you just how easy and efficient SMS marketing can be. Read on for an in-depth guide on how to use SMS marketing before and during an event.
Use bulk SMS Messaging to Setup and Manage an Event
The best way to begin marketing your event using bulk SMS messaging? Start by reserving a keyword—a unique phrase that your customers can use to subscribe to the list. All it takes is a single text from them to opt-in, and they will begin receiving your updates, promotions, and more.
Offer a Discount
Gain subscribers by offering a discount for new sign-ups. Whether it’s a percentage off their next ticket purchase, vouchers, or coupons, offering a freebie is a great way to engage your audience and have them start subscribing.
Once you are gaining subscribers, you can take advantage of the different features that SMS marketing campaigns offer.
Promote Ticket Sales via text message
Let your customers know when tickets to your events are going on sale and if there are any special pre-sale events or discounts. If you have a large subscriber base, you can segment your audience to better serve their interests.
Provide Event Reminders via bulk SMS
As the event gets closer, you can send important reminders to attendees and countdown the weeks or days to generate excitement. Use text message scheduling to automate these texts, so you don’t have to sweat the details.
Send Day-Of Details
Did parking plans change? Is the event sold-out and you’re expecting a large crowd? Do you have last-minute details to add? Sending a text message is the quickest and most effective way to alert your attendees, so you can avoid a potential disaster.
Message Your Existing Contacts
