✨ Benefits of Using Email to Text Add-on:

➤ Helps You Create a Sense of Urgency in Business Texting
People often respond to text messages more often than phone calls. The response rates are considerably higher from SMS. The message doesn’t have to be long and you can customize it to relay the urgency or importance of your text.

➤ Engage With Customers and Have Conversations Over Text
Communicating with customers helps your brand be more personable and approachable. Two things that can make you stand out from competitors. Texting can also facilitate the process with your sales team or customer support.

➤ SMS Can Help You Get More Product Reviews
Reviews are a great way to build your brand reputation online. When consumers read online reviews of a product, they are more likely to purchase that product than if they had not read them.
A great way to maximize on that would be to send out a survey by SMS after a customer interacts with your brand. Encourage them to leave feedback in the way of a review to help others who may be on the fence.

➤ Qualify More Leads with Two-way Messaging
Since texts have a higher conversion rate, it makes sense to use it as a way to move your customer from one part of your sales funnel to the next. Using email to text to qualify your leads can help you speed up the process and increase your sales.

➤ Encourage Brand Loyalty
Text messages from businesses get opened more often (80 to 100%) and are acted upon immediately. Having an opt-in for SMS messaging allows you to send out promo material, sales events, and new product launch announcements quicker and easier than by email.

🔥 Using the Email to Text add-on can benefit anyone in any industry, such as:

➤ Automotive Industry
The automotive industry is using SMS marketing to get in touch with prospective car buyers. The SMS messages are sent by dealerships at various stages of the customer journey, including before, during and after the purchase.

➤ Beauty & Hair Salons
Eliminate no-shows with email to text message reminders! Send a text reminder one day ahead of your appointment date to make sure your customer remembers and is still able to attend their next appointment. They can reschedule if need be.,

➤ Competitions & Polls
SMS messaging can be used for conducting competitions or polls to build brand preference and exposure for your business or product.
These days, almost everyone has a mobile phone, and unlike postal addresses, they don’t tend to change as often as other information. They may change email addresses and physical locations, but they tend to keep the same phone number so people can find them. Polls or competitions run by SMS help to build brand loyalty and drive sales.

➤ Schools and Education
No matter what type of education or training facility you run, being able to get in touch with teachers, faculty, or parents on short notice is a Godsend. Changes happens frequently and you need to keep others in the loop. Email to text messaging can help you keep everyone informed in real-time.

➤ Emergency Services
In an emergency, every second counts. Keep ahead of danger with efficient communication tools. No matter what type of emergency - fire, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, tsunami, or flooding, SMS messages can help you alert everyone faster.

➤ Healthcare
SMS messaging can help whether you work in a hospital, medical office, dental office, clinic, or laboratory. You can communicate with your team faster and easier using email to text messaging. .

➤ Information Technology
Reduce waiting time and frustration when trying to get through by phone. No one likes to be put on hold for 15 minutes listening to elevator music, no matter how great you think it is. When an issue arises, it’s nice to be able to connect with someone right away.
SMS customer service lets the customer reach out when help is needed, without the long wait time of chat or phone calls. It’s fast, efficient and gets to the root of the problem quickly, which will make your customers happy.

➤ Manufacturing Industry
Warehouses are noisy places, and not the right environment for a sales call. SMS messaging is perfect for the manufacturing industry. It has the highest engagement rate of any remote communication method, as well as the lowest spam rate, and can be applied in a myriad of ways to reduce costs and increase productivity.

➤ Marketing
Text messaging is a superior marketing tool when compared with traditional advertising, marketing campaigns, telemarketing phone calls, and emailing. Consumers often see text messages as preferable to other types of communication and respond better to them.

➤ Real Estate
In businesses where communication is a necessity, real estate agents need to be able to contact people within a few seconds or minutes sometimes, and SMS messaging fits the bill. Agents sometimes need to contact builders, contractors, or technicians on short notice and this is the fastest method for doing that.
Combining customer service and networking skills can help you manage difficult tasks in the real estate industry.

➤ Hotels and Travel
Travel and tourism is an industry where things can change on a moment's notice. A hotel accommodation opens up, a vacation rental becomes available, any number of events can happen within a short amount of time. Having a list of people you can contact quickly to solve problems or handle issues is a must-have. This works well for airlines, travel agencies, resorts, bed and breakfasts, hotels, motels, and other reservation-based service providers.
