textALERT examples from last month

Last month, a Mexican Restaurant in Auburn, KY ran a textALERT offering their subscribers a BOGO half off an entree offer. The campaign was able to drive in over 5% of their total subscribers in that time span. They texted 1197 subscribers at one time, driving in 60 extra people. See the message below.

Restaurant Marketing Ideas for March textALERT example

Another textALERT example sent last month was one from a Coffee Shop in Owensboro KY. They used a filter in the textALERT wizard sending the offer to only people who had previously visited in February, (140 subscribers), driving in 20 of that small amount, (14.29%) to redeem an offer of $1 Off a specialty latte. Very smart of them to save credits by segmenting their latest visiting customers & rewarding them while driving them back in for an offer of a specialty item.
