Sep 1, 2016 From: How-to



We all love well-tried and tested marketing strategies. If we know one of these strategies, we deploy it over and over until it stops yielding us benefits. So, take your approved text message campaigns and use them to make templates at your Intis Telecom account. Explore the following examples to learn how to do it.

When is creating templates helpful?

Imagine you’ve just finished promoting your mobile campaign and as a result you’ve gained new subscribers. An effective strategy here is to send your newcomers welcoming text messages, making the first move toward a lasting relationship. What’s more, creating a template for a welcoming text message saves time. Mail it out every time you get newbies among your mobile subscribers.

Let’s also consider the situation when you are the owner of online store and you’ve decided to inform your customers about the progress of their orders through texting. It’s a nice idea to create several text message templates that fit different order stages, such as order creation, order on hold, order completion, order cancellation, payment refund etc.

As you may understand, templates could be useful in many different occasions when you are going to send out repetitive text messages.
