PERSISTING NETWORK

DIGITAL FREELANCING

Although SMS marketing has grown steadily along with messaging service yet the relationship between consumers and sellers has seen drastic changes recently. An ordinary person opens his message within five minutes of delivery, but the same person reads his email ninety minutes after its reception. These statistics say a lot about the consumer behavior of digital generation.

Around the world, after the arrival of Corona Virus, the ‘work from home’ business is rapidly growing on websites like Fiverr, Upwork, Facebook and Freelancer. Jobless people around the world prefer working freely more than time bound jobs. However, some freelancers are utilizing one of the oldest marketing strategies as well i.e., SMS marketing.

SMS MARKETING

SMS marketing is considered great for boosting engagement with customers, generating more sales and more revenue, and reaching wide range of audience in minimum time and cost.

Nowadays,  all kinds of services are marketed through SMS messages. From paint and cleaning services to teaching and tutoring services, text messages from all businesses and companies arrive in our inbox continuously.

Freelancers are not behind in this race of revenue and popularity.  By fully utilizing the potential of SMS marketing, they send text messages to vast target audience, introducing themselves and their skills. When customers understand what they are being offered and in what cost, they are sure to get interested and contact you right away.

Without the interruption of emails, websites or agents in SMS marketing, customers find this way of association much simpler and more personal. Another plus point of SMS marketing is that the customers, freelancers text, might share the messages with their acquaintances, friends, or family, which will promote freelancer’s business even more.

Offers that are sent via SMS seem more exclusive to the customers than offers that are sent through email. SMS are also much faster and more efficient in conveying the freelancer’s message than emails, another reason SMS marketing is given more importance than email marketing.

UTILIZING

The period in which freelancers should use SMS marketing more than ever is when their business is still young. When a freelancer sells a product, but he does not have a store or when he sells a skill, but he is not part of any company or organization, that is when SMS marketing comes in the picture. By using cost effective and quick messaging service, a freelancer can easily find hundreds of customers who are ready to give money for his skills.

The proximity of mobile phones and brief format of messages are key to the success of SMS marketing. Both the facts that mobile phones are always at arm’s length and messages are easy to read because they consume very little time and are briefly written as compared to emails, have kept SMS marketing alive and thriving, even now in the age of social media and internet.

 

With the certainty of reaching 100% customers, SMS marketing helps freelancers engage with customers no matter where they are, what they are doing, or what time of the day it is.
