Mass text messaging tool

The popularity of text messages

Text messages are currently the fastest and one of the cheapest forms of communication. As a result, they are very popular, and the best proof for that is more than 51.9 billion (Poland's Office of Electronic Communications data) text messages sent in Poland in 2014.

Text message advertising

Text messages are an effective advertising tool. According to GFK MRI, as many as 57% of people are willing to call back the received SMS advertisement. The Nielsen Agency confirms in its research that 71% of people who received an SMS advertisement on their mobile phone are looking for further information about the advertised product.

The popularity of SMS, MMS and USSD technologies is also a result of the possibility to use them in the activities of almost every company. SMS and MMS drive the majority of messaging communications. Customer service is one of those areas where we can find the most examples:

  • banking and financial services - authorization of transactions, balance check, account access authentication
  • tourism - confirmation of reservations, information and reminders about travel details
  • logistics and transport - organisation of deliveries, shipment tracking
  • e-commerce - order confirmation, order status information
  • local administration – service for residents (information about the status of the case, a possibility of receiving documents)
  • crisis management – information about the threat
  • health – confirmation and reminder of visits, information on the collection of results

SMS and MMS are also used on a large scale in entertainment and promotion.  Advertising, marketing and PR agencies are eager to include this type of communication in their campaign plans.  The most typical actions carried out with the use of SMS and MMS are the following:

  • competitions and lotteries
  • information about promotions
  • loyalty programmes: discount coupons and codes
  • marketing events – information, registration, communication
  • mass events as an element of the interaction
  • sales support – direct marketing
  • building customer relationships - personalised messages
  • surveys
