Frost & Sullivan 2010 & Epsilon 2009 reports found that compared to email marketing, which has an average open rate of 22%, however, 98% open rate of SMS messages is a deal clincher, any day.
There is no match for SMS Marketing when it comes to their Open Rate. Some hard-core Email-Marketing advocates may say Email is free, even then the 99% Open Rate promises more value.
Free does not mean effective!
The sky-high Open Rates make SMSs not only effective but cost effective too, as there are costs attached to Email marketing. The Rate of Investment (ROI) of Bulk SMS campaign according to different sources is between 30-45%. I mentioned the 30-45% range due to the fact that different studies take different parameters to arrive at the ROI. However, it goes without saying that a ROI between 30-45% is healthy.

SMS Marketing helps a marketer to target the most important aspect of the Marketing cycle – the customer. The messages designed carefully for the customers are delivered specifically to the mobile device the targeted customer owns. Above all, the customer is independent of the Internet to open and read the message carefully designed for them.
SMS open rates are nearly 5 times that of email.
The average person takes 90 seconds to reply to an SMS message — but 90 minutes to respond to an email.
For every marketing manager, media planner, communication specialist, the above statistics are virtually impossible to ignore. Ignorance cannot be a bliss in this case.

Save the best for the last.
When I opened an account with Kotak bank. I did share my phone number to get balance alerts, transaction alerts and OTPs for transactions and other banking services.
Similarly, when we shop for our favorite brands at Shoppers Stop, Marks & Spencer, Pantaloons, Reliance Trends, and the likes, we do share our phone numbers to receive alerts on off-season sale announcements or new collection announcements. These brands do pamper us with special discounts on our Birthdays and Anniversary. They also connect with us on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and various other occasions.
I have agreed to get match alerts from my favorite club – Manchester United. I love to hear everything about it. My eyes light up whenever a notification or an alert comes in.
All this is a classic case of Opt-in SMS Marketing.
To me this is the best aspect of SMS Marketing.
This is purely because a customer agrees to hearing from a company or a brand. Opt-in means that a customer looks forward to hearing from the company of his liking or choice. The brand will have her undivided attention and she will be all ears to their nudges and persuasion.
As any learned marketer knows, much of the marketing budget is spent in drawing the attention of the consumers in the utterly noisy market. But with SMS, she has agreed to give you her precious time and attention to listen to you, intently.
