Uses of SMS in Lead Nurturing

The lead nurturing process seeks to catch the attention of potential clients, help them complete a purchase, and encourage them to buy again, achieving brand loyalty. SMS messages allow fulfilling all the goals in these steps.

  • In the first place, you can send promotions and deals to users. Catch their attention with discounts and coupons that have a time limit. In this way, they will have an urgency to complete the purchase.
  • You can also notify clients about new products and services that are launched to the market. It’s important to keep them posted about company news, especially when the news is about new options and selling opportunities.
  • Once they have selected their products, you can send an SMS confirming the purchase and, with the delivery address, if it was an online purchase. You can also try cross-selling, meaning offering a product that complements that one that has already been bought.
  • Regarding the home delivery service, you can send an SMS text on the day the products are supposed to arrive, as well as send a message that confirms the delivery. In this way, you’ll accompany the client throughout the whole process.
  • Finally, you can congratulate users for finishing their purchase, and invite them again to do business with your company. Another useful option is carrying out surveys to receive feedback about your strengths and things you should improve.
  • For regular clients, receiving invitations to company events is important. You’ll make them feel more important, give an added value, and foster loyalty to your brand.
