Text Marketing Templates

Introduction

When you decide to give text marketing a try, it can be hard to know what to say in your first few bulk texts. The aim is to get people to act on what you say, so you need to word it carefully. To help you out, we've listed our four top tips for writing a marketing text and provided loads of examples to get you on the right track.

Our four top tips

When writing a marketing text bear in mind that not only is it about what you say, it's also about the way you say it. For your text marketing to be successful always follow these four rules:

1. Aim to be short and sweet.

2. Create a sense of urgency.

3. Tell people how you'd like them to take action.

4. Always use a link shortener (like bit.ly) when adding any links in your texts. If not they'll take up too many characters, plus a shortened link always looks neater.

If you need more help take a look at this article: How To Write The Perfect Sms Offer.

Example bulk texts:

We've split our sample texts into four categories to make it easier for you to identify the text template you're looking for. Once you've found the one you're after simply edit it to suit your business, needs and offering.

1. Marketing texts

2. Promotional / Sales Texts

3. Date / Time Reminders

4. Notifications / text alerts

1. Marketing texts

These are all about increasing awareness. After you've done the hard work of collecting customer details and getting them to opt in, you can use bulk text to show them other ways to find out more about your business and gather extra information for other forms of marketing (like email newsletters).
