If you are planning a big SMS campaign think carefully about exactly what time you send your SMS. SMS arrive almost instantly and are read quickly but you need to consider timing very carefully. Remember that your customers may be making plans ahead of time and sending your SMS too late will mean they have made other arrangements.

Consider these scenarios:

  1. Takeaway / restaurant - send your campaign around 4pm on Friday, before your customers have made plans

  2. Taxi company - send your marketing messages on Saturday afternoon to remind customers to book their cabs early

  3. Wedding Fair on Sunday - send your messages Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday to maximise visitor numbers

  4. Travel companies - send your campaigns every Friday to make sure your company is the first they call when they book

Timing is everything - too early and you will be ignored, too late and they will have already made their choice. Monitor your response rates and feel free to call us for advice.
