About Text Messaging

Anytime, Anywhere Customer Engagement!

Text messaging enables you to send important, time sensitive messages to your opted-in audience.  Your messages may contain announcements, alerts, news, driving directions, and even mobile coupons. You can use text messaging to run contests, confirm appointments, get customer feedback, run a rewards program, and so much more.

If you don't care when, or if, a customer reads your message...send an email.  If you want them to read it within seconds of you sending it...send a text message!

 
 

Texting Requirements

All text messaging campaigns require the following elements:

KEYWORD:  this is the word that end-users will “text in” to join your campaign. The keyword is what defines your campaign on a particular SHORT CODE.  Skoop! will assign a keyword to your campaign upon its creation.

SHORT CODE:  this the short phone number – typically 5 or 6 digits – that the KEYWORD is sent to. The short code is typically owned and managed by the mobile marketing company. Skoop!'s main short code is 75667.

Demo:  text CARWASH to 75667 to join the Joe's Car Wash mobile club


Text Messaging Campaign Types from Skoop!

Broadcasts
Build an opt-in subscriber list and then blast your messages to them on your schedule. Run a special one-day sale event on slow days, or sell your perishable inventory, or invite your best customers in for a preview of your new products!  The uses of a broadcast campaign are without limit.

Instant Coupons
Allow customers to easily "pull" your coupons on demand, simply by texting in a special keyword.  They redeem them by just showing the message at your business. Or, use Skoop!'s powerful Mobile Coupon Redemption Platform to redeem, track, amd measure your coupon program performance.
