And, best of all, SMS marketing has never been easier thanks to Textedly’s easy-to-use texting solutions platform.
Most commonly known as QR codes, static barcodes can be used both in-store and online. The customer simply scans the code at the time of purchase and the discount is automatically applied to their purchase. Many customers prefer static barcodes over other types of textable coupons and discounts because they’re simple to use.
Static promo codes simplify life for business owners. Simply create the offer, insert it into a message, and send it to one contact or to an entire group. It is the easiest way to send offers to customers who can then see the promo code by scanning the promo code during their in-store purchase, again using their smartphone device.
The QR code is one of the most common barcodes used in SMS marketing, although several others are easily generated to provide a discount to customers. With unique barcodes, you eliminate duplicate use and can provide customer-specific deals.
Similar to unique barcodes, unique promo codes offer a specific deal to a specific customer or group of customers. This code is typically usable both online and in-store.
Show This Text is an offer the customer must simply show to the cashier at checkout. These coupons are usually redeemable only in-store, but exceptions may apply.

SMS marketing is permission-based so you’ll need to collect subscribers before sending coupons. Sending SMS messages to a telephone number that hasn't opted-in to receive the messages could result in huge fines and other legal troubles. There are a couple of ways to do this. The easiest is to advertise your SMS marketing campaign online, social media, in your store, etc. A special freebie or special deal entices people to sign up. You can also use a web form to collect subscribers' names and telephone numbers.
Create user groups to easier target customers with coupons and offers. There are several ways/types of groups you can create, including gender, age, geographical region, etc. Separating your contacts into groups makes sending targeted coupons and offers much easier. It takes only a few minutes to create these groups using our specialized software.
Now it’s time to compile the template or the offer you’ll send out to customers. Be precise and detailed in the wording. Include any minimum quantities required to receive the discount or other specifications, as well as an expiry date. Detailed coupons receive the best response from customers.
