Increase sales:-

Brokers and financial agencies can carry out promo-publicity campaigns on databases, in which they offer contact/follow-up with a financial consultant, and send out up-to-the-minute information to their customers through SMS Finance. Insurance firms/agencies can remind their customers of the expiry dates of their policies.

Improve customer service:-

Notify customers of the progress of their applications (e.g. mortgages, loans) and details of transactions made in real time with text alerts (credit card payments, bank transfers), or allow them to request information (current account balance, etc.) Insurance firms can keep their clients updated on damage compensation through text alerts.

Generate new contacts:-

A dedicated mobile number that’s publicized on posters and publicity materials in the branch can be used to generate further contacts from people who’d prefer not to receive phone calls but don’t mind getting news and updates via SMS.

Sending photos:-

Insurance companies can receive photographs of accidents sent directly by their clients requesting damages. Photos taken at the site of the accident arrive directly to the systems of the company’s claims department.

Is there a best time of day to send out my sms campaign?
To answer this question you need to think like a customer. For most working people the only opportunity during the day to sort out personal finance issues is during the lunch break. Aim to have your sms campaign arriving between 12pm and 2pm. If possible, avoid Mondays as this has been proven to be the least responsive day of the week.
