"SMS text marketing can help companies build customer trust and retention by sharing exclusive offers and important company updates. Unlike email, SMS text messaging ensures quick deliverability, higher open and conversion rates and platform flexibility through this highly personal marketing channel. Texts are a direct line of communication with a company's most loyal customer base. For company brands wanting to stay on the cutting edge of marketing to maintain and grow their customer base, text marketing is a necessity." Yahoo! Finance, May 13, 2021
