SMS For Marketing And Promotions
Fast, personal communications with your customers – direct to their mobile handsets!
- Need to promote your next event, new product or next clearance sale?

Mobile Marketing Plus For Your Business
Utilising directSMS’ Mobile Marketing Plus platform gives you an easy to use collection of tools designed to make reaching your customers and prospects a whole lot easier.
Your competitors are all using SMS Marketing to sell more of their products and services. Contact us and you too can see how to utilise SMS messaging to better engage with customers.
There are many ways you can utilise SMS messaging for your company’s marketing:
Personalise Your Bulk SMS Messages
SMS is a very personal medium. Some studies have shown that SMS has an open rate of close to 99%. No one deletes an SMS before first reading it.
You can utilise the true power of SMS by ensuring each one of your messages is personalised with your customer’s details. After all, personalised messages have greater “cut through” with readers.
Just because the platform at directSMS will allow you to send bulk SMS messages quickly, does not mean you have to send the same message to everyone. Utilise some of our personalisation technology to ensure each message sent is read fully to get the biggest ROI possible.
2-Way Messaging For Greater Engagement
You can utilise our 2-way SMS technology to engage your customers instead of simply bombarding them with broadcast messages. Our platform is clever enough to correlate each of your customers’ replies with your original message. Great for confirming attendance, competitions or other applications where you want to open a dialogue between you and your customers.
Keyword Based SMS Marketing
Utilise our SMS keyword functionality to build your opt-in lists and better segment your customers or leads.
Printed coupons are a very effective method of attracting new business. Having said that, the process of organising, printing and distributing these coupons can be very costly and time consuming.
By using SMS coupons, you can dramatically cut down the setup costs and lead up times.
You can send mobile coupons directly to your customers’ phones within minutes of their inception. And with the high open rate of SMS (pegged as high as 99% in some studies), the majority of your messages will be read rather than being regarded as ‘junk mail’.
Studies have shown that mobile coupons encourage the customer to be spontaneous. Applications for the retail and hospitality industry are only limited by your imagination.
SPAM Act Compliance
You can use our 2-way or Inbound SMS facilities to track marketing campaign opt-in and opt-out, ensuring you are always in compliance with Australia’s Anti-Spam laws.
