Valuable uses of SMS in Epass Online

Getting the attention of sports consumers is becoming increasingly difficult. With all the email newsletters, ads on social media, banners, you name it, consumers are overwhelmed. It is becoming increasingly expensive and less effective to recruit new members through these marketing channels.

If you compare these marketing channels to SMS, SMS is way cheaper and you can be sure that that potential customer will actually read your message. In fact, SMS has an open rate of 98% versus email’s average open rate of 21%.

Payment reminders:

By using SMS automatically for payment reminders (with an iDeal link, for example) for outstanding invoices, organisations achieve on average 30% more payments

Bulk marketing campaigns:

Use SMS as a marketing channel to highlight promotions and offers. SMS has an open rate of 98% versus email’s average open rate of 21%.

Reviews, surveys and dashboards:

Automate surveys, group class reviews and other reports to gain insight into your customers.

Increase retention:

Monitor inactive members of your gym or studio and activate them with best-working SMS activation templates or send them useful or inspiring messages from time to time for customer retention.

Appointment reminders:

Research shows that appointment reminders via SMS can lead to 70% no-show reduction. Calculate yourself how much it costs if people don’t show up for a PT session or a physio appointment.
