Compliance Is Essential

Due to TCPA regulations, businesses cannot upload lists of customer numbers and send messages. Businesses are liable $500 per unsolicited text message sent. There are two ways your customers can subscribe to receive TCPA compliant messages:

1 – By texting a keyword through the MobileCause system

Example: Text EXCEL to 51555

2 – By entering a mobile number into a MobileCause online form

Online forms can be displayed on tablets, smartphones and PCs in the workplace, in the field, at conferences, and on your website. After entering their mobile number, customers will receive an immediate text message in which they must reply “YES” to subscribe.

MobileCause ensures that you are 100% TCPA compliant when sending text messages. The MobileCause system automatically manages your opt-in and opt-out subscribers in real time.


Consider Your Customer Demographic

Millennials (born 1980-1995, 27.4% of US population) prefer text, are generally annoyed by voice calls, are active on social media and read email infrequently.

GenXers (born 1965-1979, 26.6% of US population) prefer text and voice calls, typically stay up to date with email and social media.

Boomers (born 1950-1964, 26.4% of US population) prefer voice calls, are late adopters of text, most use email, and some use social media.

Mobile marketing technology enables businesses to engage customers while saving time. A healthy mix of texts, email and social media posts will ensure you effectively engage customers across demographics.


Messages Must Be Entertaining Or Essential Or They Will Be Ignored

Don’t treat texts like emails! Mobile phones are our most personal device. Three ways to engage customers with mobile marketing:

1—Send links to videos
“Learn how to build or repair a fence on a budget. Watch DIY video with Phil! http://youtu.be/ebfr12”

2—Send links to promotions
“Schedule a one week bathroom remodel this month and receive $1000 cashback.”

3—Send calls to action with time sensitive appeals
“The next customer to schedule a free in-home consultation for a kitchen remodel will receive a hardware upgrade at no cost.”
