textALERT examples from last month

Last month, a mexican restaurant ran a Cinco de Mayo textALERT offering their subscribers 10% off their entire purchase for the weekend of May 5. The campaign was able to drive in just below 3% of their total subscribers. They used Cinco de Mayo for a marketing opportunity that fits their company and their subscribers perfectly. See the message below.

Restaurant Marketing Ideas for June textALERT example

Another textALERT example sent last month was one from a Smoothie King in Oklahoma City. They texted 320 subscribers at one time, driving in 21 people in one day, (6.56%) to redeem an offer of one free 32oz Juice or Smoothie with the purchase of one for what they call “Wacky Wednesdays”. When a simple textALERT can drive in that percentage of your customer base in one day, it is powerful indeed!
