The power of your Signpost Text Marketing Number
If you have a software subscription with Signpost, you already have a text marketing number ready in your account. This phone number is specifically designed for sending and receiving text messages from your web based inbox, the Messaging Hub.
To locate your text marketing number, head to your Signpost account on a web browser. Once you login, you'll see a phone number listed on the top of your Messaging Hub, under the Signpost logo.
Advertise your text marketing number to provide your leads and customers with their preferred method of communication. Did you know 89% of consumers say they prefer texting businesses? By promoting your text marketing number, you are giving them another option to connect with your business. When they do reach out to ask a question or coordinate service, you'll be able to reply to everyone automatically with the SMS Instant Response feature. From there, you will carry on the text conversation thread directly in the Messaging Hub!
As a reminder, if anyone calls your text marketing number, the line will connect through to your regular business line!
Promote your text marketing number in campaigns, print it in a flyer, or use it in your email signature. There are many options for opening up an additional communication channel with leads and customers. Here's an example of a way you can advertise your text marketing number online.
