Almost everyone has a mobile these days. Whether connected to the internet or not, you have a ready mobile audience your business can leverage. Our Tier 1 connectivity, flexible and seamless integration, and superb support gives you the capability to boost business growth.
Let us just go ahead to show you 8 ways you can grow your business with our SMS API gateway.
Texting is very easy and cheap. One secret to getting paying customers is building a sales funnel that directs your leads to the buying path. With Hollatag’s SMS API gateway, you can capture leads easily with SMS. A lot of people still respond to SMS prompts as opposed to email and other channels. There is a reason why SMS has a high delivery rate, so here is where to start.
For instance if you run a bookstore, you could push an advert asking people to text “Win” to a short code for a chance to win latest titles. We integrate the shortcode to an application that captures their phone numbers and you have a lead capturing mechanism in place.
While there are ways to build forms over the internet and collect information, the ease of SMS and wide reach makes it a very easy platform for collecting information. Especially if your target audience do not spend much time on the internet. You may find it easier on them to integrate the SMS API with your system so that the information collected by SMS is automatically stored in the right database and ready for use. You can easily collect information like names, email addresses, phone numbers and so on.
Like has been mentioned earlier, SMS open rates are great, and almost everyone has a mobile phone that receives texts. What better channel exists to push your products and services or your brand generally? Hollatags can help you push thousands of promotional messages via SMS, reducing expenses on other channels of advertising. We can also provide you with the interface so that you can push these messages yourself. Flexibility and adaptability is the keyword with Hollatags.
Achieving excellent customer experience is paramount for any business, and customer support is a big part of customer experience. It is not in all situations that your customers can make calls or access the internet when they need to reach out for your support. We can help you build the platform for customers to communicate directly with your customer support.
Do you have a service that people access online? Ensuring users’ security when accessing the service should be a big priority for you, password protection may not be enough on its own, especially if sensitive information is at stake. Hollatags can help implement two-factor authentication using SMS.
Contests, opinion polls, and surveys can be done quite well via SMS and can even be used to generate revenue. Look at the model being used by the reality shows in Nigeria for instance, where viewers at home support their favorites by voting.
You can ask your audience to respond to surveys and polls easily too and get real-time analytics from a dashboard we develop just for that purpose. Life becomes easy for you and your customer.
Customers can send you reviews and give feedback on their experience with your product quite easily with SMS. A system that allows you analyze and measure customer satisfaction from a simple and intuitive dashboard.
If you run a business like banks that have to alert your customer or employees from time to time, then our SMS API gateway is for you. We can help you automate the process, such that everyone gets their alerts in real-time.
Now all of these are ideas that can be tweaked to fit your specific needs, so do not hesitate to call us up, let us discuss the numerous possibilities that SMS can bring to your business.
