Brace yourself for a “Why didn’t I think of that?” moment.
TextaGrams, a small business marketing startup, might just be your new secret weapon.
Despite what the name implies, it’s not a new platform for sending text messages to grandmas — Textagrams creates expertly designed, opt-in “visual text messages” for businesses to send to their customers, announcing sales, reminders, special events, and more.
The company argues that text marketing is more effective than email marketing — and they have a point. According to the TextaGrams site, “texting is the most frequently used and most popular form of smartphone communication.”
When you consider how much more quickly — and consistently — you open a text message than an email, the statistics aren’t all that surprising: text message open rates are near 100%, and on average texts tend to get opened less than five minutes after receipt.
