How to send SMS links? How to use SMS links?

To use a SMS with a link you have to include a hyperlink that leads to a page. Try to shorten the link to avoid wasting characters.

It is recommended that it be placed at the beginning or at the end of the text, so as not to interject the information. Finally, include a link that is http: // for the user to see the preview of the link. That is, an image that catches your attention.

They have several uses:

  • Help to increase sales. If you hyperlink to your products, you can get good conversion rates.
  • Way to generate traffic. You usually click on those links quite frequently. This rate will depend on the interest of the content and the intelligence with which you have divided up your audience.

There are several examples of SMS with a link: call to action, attach maps or with links to a landing page on your website.

What is a SMS landing page?

It is a page specifically adapted for browsing from mobile phones. Think that when sending a SMS, users will access it from their mobile devices. Therefore, the landing page that receives them will have to be in perfect condition to navigate through it. And be visually attractive so that users do not leave it.

It is also worth noting the great effectiveness of this method. On one hand, everyone uses their mobile phone every day, and purchases and navigation from these devices do not stop increasing. And, finally, the SMS is a medium in which advertising has not yet been exploited, so the public is not immunized against it.

Having a mobile-optimized landing page is the best strategy to offer your users the best experience. In addition, optimizing this whole process will help you increase your conversions.

What you have to take into account if you send a link in your sms?

To achieve a more positive impact with your SMS messages, it is advisable to customize your domain.

When you send an SMS with a link, you have to try to generate maximum confidence in the recipients, make them see that it is your brand (which they trust) that sends the link.

To do this we recommend you to customize your domain so that the SMS recipients trust its content and do not believe that the link is fraudulent.

Also…

It is advisable to add a preview of the link.

If you are going to send the offer of a product (for example; a pair of sneakers, sunglasses, a cell phone, a tablet...) this may be of interest to you, because it allows you to show the product. 

On the other hand, if what you are going to send is a service and the preview is a stock image, we recommend you not to do it. 

Remember that the preview also has and can provide value, and that the SMS is still limited to 160 characters, so you should identify your needs.
