Why do you need Mobile SMS Alerts?
Close to 90% of SMS messages are viewed and read within the first half hour of being received. Implementing SMS Alerts into your marketing strategy, therefore, ensures that your school’s information reaches prospective students quickly and directly. This can give your Web marketing and recruiting untold flexibility and versatility.
Furthermore, every phone number that interacts with your school is stored in a database, which can be monitored in real time via an on-line reporting dashboard. This database can give you a better sense of your target audience, giving future marketing campaigns and keyword research a solid foundation.
