One of the difficult parts of having a text alert system is how to get more subscribers!

Sometimes it might feel like no matter how hard you try you can’t get people to sign up for your texts.

We are here to help! Here are 8 tips.

get more subscribers

Tips to get more subscribers

  1. Publish your keyword (and the phone number to text it to!) and/or sign-up page for people to subscribe on social media posts.
  2. Put your keyword/sign-up page on your website/Facebook pages (on your cover photo, in your “Information/Details” section, etc. . . ).
  3. Display your keyword/sign-up page in prominent places at any physical locations/storefronts.
  4. Include your keyword/sign-up page in presentations and promotions.
  5. Insert your keyword/sign-up page in marketing emails or mailings.
  6. Mention your keyword/sign-up page at the beginning, middle and end of all live sales you do. Something simple like “OK, for anybody new, make sure you text <KEYWORD> to <PHONE NUMBER> or go to <SIGN-UP PAGE URL> in order to stay up to date with all the latest info.”
  7. Incentivize people to subscribe by offering a special deal or discount (i.e. “Sign up for text alerts to receive 20% off your next order!”).
    • From your Settings you can opt in to a $250 Amazon gift card giveaway so that your subscribers will be entered into a drawing for a gift card. You can then use this as an incentive to try to get people to subscribe (i.e. you could say something like, “My text alert provider is running a promotion! Text [keyword] to [text-in number] to subscribe to my text alerts and you will be entered into a drawing for a $250 Amazon gift card!”).
  8. If you are with LuLaRoe you can use our invitation feature to invite your Bless contacts to subscribe.

One LuLaRoe retailer mentioned that continual promotion to your page and group will help. Specifically she mentioned that she uses Loyalty Rewards to get people to subscribe and tells them that the text system will be the only method that information will be communicated. Her subscriber list quadrupled gradually over two-and-a-half weeks!

So don’t give up! Keep trying and watch your subscriber list grow. 🙂

This can be a great tool to help make messaging planning easier for you.

3. Subscribing by texting in a keyword

With a text alert system one way people can subscribe is by texting in a word associated with your account.

This allows people to easily subscribe to your alerts by simply sending a text from their phone!

Direct sales retailers such as Paparazzi and LuLaRoe send out texts when they’re going live to help drive sales at those vital times.

Sending out a text before going live can hugely increase the number of people who show up to live sales (and, by extension, the number of people who purchase!).

A small business can send out texts reminding people of upcoming sales and deals.

Running a Black Friday sale on electronics? Having a special fundraiser for purchases made on a particular day? Doing any BOGO deals? Send a text!

3. Churches use mass SMS to inform congregants about weather cancellations

When snow comes down in droves or the weathermen forecast a huge storm- to cancel church or not to cancel church?

A simple text message can save a lot of frustration and hassle when scrambling to let people know about a service or event cancellation due to weather!

4. Non-profit organizations use mass SMS to update members

Other types of non-profits besides churches (such as YMCAs) also use texting to let members know about various updates!

Sending a text can keep people updated on classes, reminders, and cancellations so that they get the most out of services offered by a non-profit.

5. Local government entities use mass SMS to communicate with citizens

Local government entities send out messages pertaining to matters important to their citizens. For example: bus route updates, office closures, and local updates.

A walkthrough of how to do that can be found here, but simply put there are just a couple of steps.

send mass texts

Step 1 of how to send mass texts by texting in

You first need to set up your phone number as an administrator under your Manage Administrators page.

This will let the system know to detect your phone number when you text in, and will connect your phone number with your Mobile Text Alerts account.

Step 2 of how to send mass texts by texting in

Next, all you need to do is send a text from your phone number to 229-299-8227 with the format GroupName Message (in which “GroupName” would be replaced with the name of the group you are wanting to send your message to and “Message” would be replaced with the message you want to send to them).

You can replace GroupName with the word All if you want to send your message to all subscribers instead of a particular group (note that you can only send to all subscribers if your administrator profile is listed as Super Administrator).

Send a message template by texting in

Not only can you type out a message to send by texting in, you can also send out a pre-set message by texting in a keyword. You can find instructions for doing this at https://mobile-text-alerts.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011325774-Message-Templates under section V!

It’s that time of year again: Snow falls, streets get slick and events get canceled. Should you use text alerts for weather cancellations?

Text alerts can be a great tool to help get the word out that offices are closed or an event is canceled due to weather.

(You can even use a Message Template feature to have a weather cancellation message prepared beforehand!)

Here are some cases in which you can use text alerts for weather cancellations.

text alerts for weather cancellations

 

1. Use text alerts for weather cancellations in your church

Church services can be tricky.

If you’re a pastor or church administrator, you may need to make a quick decision about whether or not a service or event will be canceled at your church due to weather.

A quick and effective way to get the word out is by sending text alerts.

2. Use text alerts for weather cancellations in your office

Are you a business owner or office administrator?

You can use text alerts to let employees know not to come in to work, or that the work day will start later than usual.

This can save a lot of hassle of employees plowing their way into work unnecessarily.

3. Use text alerts for weather cancellations for your customers/clients

As a business owner or administrator you can also use text alerts to communicate to customers.

Imagine a doctor’s office is closed for the day due to bad weather. A client misses the memo in their email and shows up anyway only to find that they need to call to reschedule.

Let particular customers or clients know about these kinds of cancellations so that they’ll be less frustrated!

4. Use text alerts for weather cancellations for particular events

Perhaps you run an annual event, such as a fair or a festival.

These kinds of events can rely heavily on good weather to remain up and running.

Text alerts can let your patrons know if any events are canceled due to the weather!

Looking for a way to get started with LuLaRoe texting?

Or perhaps you’ve used texting for your LuLaRoe business and are looking for ways to improve?

Many LuLaRoe retailers have benefitted from using text alerts for their business to increase sales and reach their customers!

Here are some tips for how to get the most out of your texts.

lularoe texting

1. Use LuLaRoe Texting for Live Sales

The number one reason our LuLaRoe customers use text alerts is for live sales. Often people will send out a text every time they go live.

This can do a lot to help increase viewership for your live sales and ultimately make more sales!

2. Keep Messages Concise

Texting is generally better if the messages are short and sweet! SMS as a tool can only have up to 160 characters, and although you can have more characters if you send your message as an MMS (multimedia message) this can get pricey.

It’s best to include as much info as you can in as short a message as you can!

3. Be Enticing and Personal

Balancing with the last point, you still want to make your messages seem appealing and personal, not robotic.

Convey a voice consistent with your LuLaRoe brand and find a good balance between not being overly flowery and remaining appealing.

4. Experiment with Timing

You can experiment and find out what kind of timing works best for you to send out messages.

Do you want to send your message 30 minutes before your live sale? Five minutes before? Right when the sale starts so you can link directly to the video?

You can try different approaches and see what works best for you!

5. Try Including an Exclusive Deal

If you want a loyal text subscriber base you could try including an exclusive discount for your text subscribers once in a while.

Everyone loves to get deals and discounts, and this could help increase loyalty for your subscriber base so they’ll keep wanting to receive your messages!

 

LuLaRoe texting is an effective way to connect with your customers, increase customer loyalty, and improve sales!
