SMS AND MMS MARKETING
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I reached out to Alphagraphics after a poor experience with another local printing company. Dealing with Alphagraphics was a complete 180 - they were attentive, helpful and patiently worked with me to ensure that I was satisfied with the proof and the final product. Alphagraphics certainly exemplifies what a good business providing excellent customer service should be!
Love this company. I wasn't expecting this order to be delivered. It was a wonderful surprise to see it walk through the door. One less thing on my list for that day!
Great experience as always !
Great response to finding the lost graphic files and working with me to find colors for the new printers. Great print job.
Although we don't have the need to use Alphagraphics very often we are always greatly pleased with the work that we do get done. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.
GREAT SERVICE AND PRODUCT.
Excellent to work with. Very understanding and rolls with changes.
Sharla is WONDERFUL! She makes our reordering process next to nothing - call her and it's DONE!
April is fabulous!! She is always on top of all of our orders & even reminds me to approve our inventory sheets, when I should know to do it! If I have a question about any marketing piece I just shoot her an email and ask who do I need to ask for a PO. April rocks!
Highest quality service & product.
I continue to be more than satisfied with the help you provided in printing the directory for my Sunday School Class at Fort Worth United Methodist Church. Kari Daelke has especially been a big help with all my printing jobs over the years. And members of the class always look forward to receiving a new class directory every year. Thanks again.
Mehul was able to help me meet a VERY tight deadline and when i was not satisfied with the quality of a few prints (which were completely my fault--I submitted terrible images) he quickly jumped in and printed the substituted prints with better quality images I found for my project.
Shilpa is great to work with.

USE SMS AND MMS MARKETING TO CONNECT DIRECTLY TO YOUR AUDIENCE
Looking for a way to drastically increase customer engagement without breaking the bank? Consider adding short messaging service (SMS) and multimedia messaging service (MMS) to your mobile marketing strategy.
Wondering if SMS/MMS marketing is right for your business? Like all marketing mediums—SMS/MMS campaigns are most effective when you combine their strength (immediate, interactive communication with near perfect open rates) with other location-based efforts.
THESE MIGHT INCLUDE:
- Printed postcards, brochures and signage
- Email marketing
- Social media marketing
- Variable maps
5 SMS/MMS BEST PRACTICES
CREATE A CALL TO ACTION. Recipients should know within seconds what the offer is, and how to claim it.
GET TO THE POINT. Lead with your value proposition—SMS only gives you 160 characters. Use them wisely.
VIP CONTENT ONLY. Text subscribers should only get the best deals and discounts available.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING. Set a schedule - say one text a week - and stick with it. Don't send messages during sleeping hours.
SPREAD IT AROUND. Integrate your keywords and MMS short code into other marketing channels to increase engagement and sign ups.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SMS AND MMS?
SMS refers to text-only messages, which are commonly used when individuals send quick text messages to one another. MMS includes multimedia content, such as pictures, videos, and animations.
HOW WILL IT HELP MY BUSINESS?
SMS (commonly known as text messaging) is frequented by approximately 2.4 billion users around the world, or about 74% of all mobile phone subscribers. Leveraging this platform will allow you to instantly connect with a large volume of potential customers.
PUT SMS/MMS TO WORK FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Mobile messaging provides ample opportunities to communicate with your subscribers.
CONSIDER USING SMS AND MMS MARKETING FOR:
- Converting prospects with location-based incentives
- Raising awareness about important causes
- Delivering customer rewards for loyalty programs
- Appointment reminders
- Emergency notifications
- Customer service (order status updates, reservation confirmations, etc.)
- Special promotions
- Events and trade shows
- Company news and updates
This approach conveys a consistent, personalized message across multiple channels--dramatically increasing engagement, ROI, and building brand awareness. By encouraging people to sign up for text alerts, you can start an ongoing two-way conversation with prospects and customers. SMS/MMS campaigns are a great way to foster meaningful interactions that will create return business.
And the best part? They are extremely cost-effective. To learn more about what SMS/MMS can do for you and your mobile marketing efforts, work with the team at AlphaGraphics today!
SMS & MMS MARKETING IN DALLAS STEMMONS CORRIDOR, TX
With a mobile device in almost every pocket, mobile device advertising is a great way to connect with potential customers in a way that reaches a lot of people while still feeling personal. Short Messaging Service (SMS) and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) are especially effective at this. SMS and MMS are the services by which most text messages in the world are sent and received, and every mobile phone is capable of receiving SMS and MMS messages. An SMS message is a normal text message, while an MMS message is a multimedia file sent over text. With SMS and MMS marketing from AlphaGraphics in Dallas Stemmons Corridor, you get the intimacy of text messaging combined with the reach of a mass marketing campaign.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every SMS/MMS marketing campaign has the same essential components:
- An SMS/MMS short code is developed (essentially a very short phone number)
- The consumer opts in by sending a text
- The advertiser sends short SMS or MMS messages to market their business
- The consumer can opt out at any time
SMS/MMS advertising campaigns work best when they deliver a short amount of information that is highly actionable and timely. These campaigns are often used to promote discounts, sales, and deals. The best SMS/MMS campaigns make the receiver feel like they are truly a VIP receiving important information.
POTENTIAL SMS/MMS USES
SMS/MMS campaigns are great for a number of contexts. These include fundraising campaigns, appointment reminders, awareness campaigns, event-based promotions, limited-time promotions, and company news updates for special insiders.
