Mass Text Messaging Has Vast Reach
Mass texting is a quick way to reach a vast number of people at once. As mentioned, almost everyone texts, and almost everyone regularly checks their messages was well!
Think of your own texting habits – How often do you check and pay attention to your text messages?
People tend to pay a lot more attention to their texts than to emails or social media posts.
Mass Text Messaging Feels Personal
Since mass texts come through individually they can seem more personal than some other forms of communication.
Although it's true that mass emails can come through individually as well, there is something about texting that seems more intimate. You're reaching people on their own personal phones in the same place that they receive daily messages from their friends and family.
There's a lot of power in that!
Mass Text Messaging Works
Because people pay close attention to their texts, mass text messaging has the potential to be a lot more effective than other methods.
