So you’ve purchased a new text alert system and are all ready to go, but now the hard part comes in. How to get people to subscribe to text alerts?

smartphoneIt’s easy enough if you have an existing list of numbers to import into the system, but it can be a little more difficult if you are starting from scratch.

The best way to convince people to subscribe is to offer some kind of incentive. A special discount, a coupon code, or exclusive information.

What are the best ways to get the word out there?

Newsletters

Do you send out a newsletter? Include a little blurb in your newsletter saying ‘Text <keyword> to <number> to receive special deals’
